Do I need a portable headphone amp whith these headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I have beats by dr dre studios. Ok, I know, they are a VERY bad value and I shouldn't have bought them, but I got real ones for about 200 dollars.

But I want to know, if a portable headphone amp would really improve my sound quality. I have an iPod 4th gen 32 gb.

 

And if it would improve the sound, which one is best to buy? I've heard that Fiio does a great job making them, but should I buy the E7/E9?? Or a complete other brand of amps.

 

Please help me

(sorry for my bad Enlish).

 

Thank you.

Maarten

I will be honest with you hope you don't get disappointed. :)

 

I used to own both Studio and Pro and they are such POS headphones.

I was amazed when my friend first introduced me to this headphones, (I was the guy coming from listening cheap headphones, like under $25 max).

 

Anyways, so I was impressed by Dr Dre cans, that motivated me to purchase 2 sets.  BIG mistake !

 

Pairing an amp with beats headphones won't improve the sound quality, these headphones are artificially bloated, bass is so exaggerated that you miss mid, voice, trebles, etc.  It's just disgusting to listen to these headphones.

Nope, spending money on an amp wont help those, they are already sensitive and can run loud out of a dap. It would be more worthwhile spending the money on a new set of headphones, say a grado sr60/80 or somehting else if budget permits.
