Amping my Ultrasone Pro 900s | E11 or E17?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm about to purchase some Ultrasone Pro 900s and I can't decide whether to get the E11 or E17.

 

Some people say the Pro 900s need amp, some say they don't, I just thought I'd get one to be sure. 

 

I'm only interested in sound quality, money isn't important to me, I just want to know if the E17 will produce better sound then the E11 for me or if I can just buy the E11 and get the same expierence. 

 

Thanks in advanced for any help!

Impedance wise the ultrasone is pretty linear, so audio quality wise I'm not sure how much of a difference it'll make. However, you'll be able to make it a bit louder if using with phone or pmp.
