I've read tons of posts and researched for weeks and I've decided on the DT 880s (250 ohm). There are still some things that are unclear to me and haven't been definitively answered (so far as I could find). Some of you may recognize me from a post I made a while ago which was crucial in my decision for the 880s.
I was recommended to pair these with a fiio e10 (by Malveaux), and looking around, it seems a lot of people say that. Sometimes I like to listen off of my iPod though, and I would be unable to with the e10. Is the e11's amp similar or better to the e10's? Judging by what people are saying, a <$100 DAC will hardly make a difference. Plus, I have a MB pro which is said to have a good sound card..? I'm not going to be super picky; the only headphones I've ever owned are Senn 203s.
Also, my source is going to be primarily 160kbps ogg vorbis (from Spotify). Do the 880s handle lower quality sources alright? I haven't found anything that says they're picky like the K701s, which was the reason I ruled those out.
Thanks for any advice.
