Hello I have spent a couple of days reading about headphones and amps. My old HD 595 is dying and I am looking for a replacement so I thought I could buy the HD 800 and "just plug it" into my pc. Then I realized that I was going to literally throw the money to the trash if I didn't pair them with a good amplifier.
After reconsidering my purchase and given that I just listen to music sporadically I have bought a HD 600. It seems that most people prefer it over the 650, it is cheaper and it seems that you can get good quality even if your source is not the best in town.
My PC has a Sound Blaster Recon3D with a suposed "premium" headphone amplifier rated for headphones up to 250 Ohm. I wonder if this is fine to drive the 300 Ohm HD 600. I don't like loud volumes at all, does this matter? Can someone tell me the if I am going to appreciate any difference if I get something like the NuForce Icon HDP? As I said I have no idea at all and I don't want to waste my money. Any other advices?
Thanks in advance.
