Hi everyone, I am new to these forums and i have a question i want to ask concerning these headphones/headset. I currently have the astro 5.8 mixamp and im using it with my sennheiser pc360 on my xbox 360. I wanted to know If i can use AKG q701 along with the astro mixamp on my xbox 360 and the fiioe9 to give it more juice . If not? Should I just go ahead and buy the beyerdynamic mmx300 to use with my astro mixamp instead. I can always buy a clip on mic for the akg's so it's not a problem. Im going to be using these headphones/headsets on the xbox 360 only. So what amp should i buy for the akgq701's to go along with the astro mixamp.

I would assume the Fiio E9 would do the job.
There are several thread on Head-Fi about driving the Q701,
Just search for "Amping the Q701"
