I ordered last week a new pair of cans according to some recommendations I found in this site (Sennheiser hd 25-1 II)
I'm new to the audiophile world and I lack alot of knowledge (this is my firs thread in head-fi also )
I've read some post regarding headphone amps. Many of you use headphone amps such as the Fiio e10,e10,e17 etc... some amps have DAC and some don't. I understand it means Digital To Ananalog but when it comes to listening to music what does it mean?
Should I (as a noob) rush to buy a headphone amp?
I listen to music alot during the day. I play music from my laptop or my galaxy phone. Here comes another question: If i decide to buy headphone amp should i buy the Fiio e10 (for my laptop) + Fiio e5/6 (for my phone) or should I buy the Fiio e11 and use it on both devices?
(If there's a better suggestion I'll be happy to hear it)
My considerations are:
1. I want to get the most out of my cans
2. I don't want to spend too much money (my budget is around 80$)
I'll explain a little what i'm thinking:
1. The little Fiio amps (e5/e6) I think it's easier to use them on the go (I use public trasportation) and one i'll reach my office i could use the e10.
2. Use the Fiio e11 for the purposes mentioned above
There is a fair chance that I'm not making any sense :/ but just like I said I'm very know to all of this and I could use some guidance :)
