Hellooo all, long time lurker, first time post..er. I am currently in possession of a pair of KRK kns8400 Headphones and have been using a ART USB Dual Pre Audio Interface that I use for my mic as a headphone amplifier. I was wondering, how bad of an idea is this? Or is it a bad idea? I can't really tell if there is much of a difference between the audio interface and just a raw input from my laptop (desktop is broken, yay RMA's..) other than volume. I checked the specs on the interface and realized the frequency response is 20 Hz to 20K Hz, while my headphones go from 5 Hz to 23K Hz. It seems I am losing a tid bit of sound in those frequencies. I've heard many people say "Well since the human ears can olny pick up 20 Hz to 20K hz, the rest doesn't matter blah blah" while others claim it does? Sorry to ramble, but my main question is this: Is it a huge loss in SQ, if any at all, to use this Audio Interface as a headphone amp? Thanks!
