DT770 Pro-80ohm And a Mixamp. Will I be in need for an AMP too?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm a noob and this is my first phones.

 

I will be getting the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro-80ohm.

 

After reading about amps and ohm I found out that my mixamp (Astro Mixamp Pro)  will do 70mW 32ohm per channel. is that good enough? and if its not, would someone kindly recommend a good amp to close the gap and be able to use the phones to the fullest? 

The amp will be used with the mixamp. I have my PC and Xbox360 hooked to the mixamp and those are the only sources I'll use the phones with.
Thanks.

The Mix-amp. might do a decent job of powering the DT770 Pro 80-Ohm

 

Headphone amplifiers.

SMSL SAP-100 $70 on eBay

Fiio E9 $115

On eBay there are assorted single tube headphone amplifiers sells from $50 -$130.

Amazon has one for around $63.

Guys, hi! I'm new here, and i can be considered as a noob. 
I have the same problem, because I'm a passionate gamer and audiophile. 
After tons of research, i narrowed down my choices to either the Dt 770 32 ohms or 80 ohms. 
I game on my ps4 (with an optical port) and i have the s7 edge as my phone. 
the problem is I don't know which set is better. I need the set of cans which will satisfy both my need to listen to music and gaming.
So is it better to get the 80 ohms version with an amp? (and i need help to find an amp compatible with the ps4)
or should i get the 32 ohm version? 
Please help me out! Any reply will be highly appreciated!
