Sennheiser HD 439......... Do I need an amp?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm still fairly nooby to high end audio so I could do with some help. I'm in the market for a full size set of headphones and these (title) appear to be getting fairly good reviews here. My two sources are the Sony NWZ-X1060 and the Hisoundaudio Rocoo-P. Do I require an amp to get the best out of the HD439's on these devices? I'm also considering the Grado SR-80i as an alternative. To give you an idea of my preferred sound I own the Hisoundaudio POPO and the Beyer DTX-101 IEM's , my preference being for the Beyer's as the the POPO's are far too bass heavy. My favourite genre is Rock.

To the OP... what kind of sound signature do you prefer? Cold, warm, bright, or dark?

I tend towards a warm, dark signature but not in the extreme sense. Since becoming more serious about SQ I have tended to move away from bass over emphasis but still prefer an overall warmth to the sound. I don't want to suppress treble/highs too much either but I do tire of an overly bright signature very easily. Thanks for responding.

if you can stretch your budget a bit, try the shure srh840s. but if you want the hd439's (and an amp), a fiio e6/e5 will be sufficient. :)
