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

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.
