Wow these sound really good, I can't wait to order them. They will be my first pair of high quality headphones. Hey, I would like an amp, would you reccomend one in a novice/low price range. Something cost effective without sacrificing a bunch of quality?
In fact my dad has a stereo amp left over from when he used to work for an electronics store back in the 80s. It's a pioneer sa-730 stereo amp with a headphone jack. Does that sound like a good idea? I also have a fender 15G frontman guitar amp haha. Tonnes of amps none for headphones.
Great review by the way
I don't know much about desktop/dedicated amps, espeically ones that aren't really headphone specialized but that SA 730 looks like it could do the trick. compare it to the amps im about to recommend you. your ears andhow u like the sound is best in saying if that amp is good or not
FiiO E6 (hands down) $26
Do you have an ipod? if so. grab an FiiO L3 or L9 LOD(none of the others) This will bypass the ipod's internal AMP and give you a straight great digital feed straight fromt he DAC :).
The E6 and L9 costs a total of $~38 while the E6 with L3 costs about ~$34. most get the L9 since that shape is more preferable.
Remember, Audiophile bass is different from consumer bass. You will probably learn tolove the clean, tight, concise bass of the audiophile world from the boom boom boom in the consumer!
Plz note, these take 10+ hours to start sounding good. i was baffled when i first got them at the quality. You might not notice it asthis is ur first pair, but for us audiophiles with other headphones. it's quite audible just how..not that good these are initialy :) 10-~90 hours have a lot of big changes. it goes up and down, up and down :)
Thank you for your reply! it helps a lot :) Thanks for liking my review. You can ask further questions if you want more clarification or something
