Help me find a headphone amp for sennheiser hd 280 pro

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi!

This is my first post here!

 

Anyway, I just bought my first pair of full size closed headphones (Sennheiser HD 280 Pro) and like how they sound. There is such a huge difference between them and my previous headphones (£5 in-ear headphones I bought at local supermarket).

 

However, I came across an article that said I need a headphone amp to get the best sound out of these headphones, but since I know nothing about this stuff, I came here to ask you guys.

 

What kind of headphone amp would suit these headphones? My budget is around £80 so there is not that much choice anyway.

I came across three options so far, FiiO E7, ASUS Xonar U1 and Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi HD (which has headphone amp).

Currently I just plug my headphones into my cheap laptop's headphone jack.

 

Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.

 

Oh, and by the way, I don't care how big or small or heavy or ugly it is. I will not be moving it around. It will stay connected to my laptop at all times. The only reason why I posted in the Portable Headphone Amps category is because I don't think I can get a proper desktop headphone amp for £80 anyway.

How about Fiio E17? Solid sounding DAC/amp, can be used as portable amp too
