Hello everyone .
I am totally new to the forum and the audiophile section. I ve been listening to a lot of rock music , classic rock .
Recently a friend of mine bought me the Beyerdynamics DT880 250ohm edition . i like the headphones very much and the music is very crisp and clear . Very satisfied .
I really really really care now for the clarity of the music .My goal is to mainly listen to every detail in the musi i listen to
I ve done some 1-2 day research on audiophile headphones and i have some very basic question which you guys will find pretty easy to answer :) :
Firstly 250 ohm ? Is it better than 32 or 600 ohms ? what is ohm actually lol :)
Secondly : Do i need an amplifier for my headphones?What does an amplifier do in simple words .Why some amplifiers cost thousands of dollars and why some 60$ , like the fiio e11.Can the most expensive amps give me a better sounding of music generally ? ( meaning clarity , hearing everything in a song ).Not that ill buy one because i really am a noob at audiophile stuff . I intend to use them on my imac mostly . I have lots of mp3 format and some flac format files and as i said previously i want to really listen to everything in a live recording lets say .
Thirdly : what files should i look for that will give me the best sound quality ? FLAC ?
thanks in advance and sorry for the silly questions . as i said i dont know anything about audiophile stuff , but i would like to get involved :)
