pc 360 amp?

I've made another thread about the ultrasone's but If I was to get a pc 360 by sennheiser for gaming and listening to music would an amp be necessary? I don't really want to spend the extra money.

Heya,

 

Not to be rude, but if you don't want to spend extra money frivolously then I recommend you read the impedance/sensitivity of the PC 360 that you're looking at. Would you buy tires without knowing what size your car takes? Same applies here. These measurements give you a good indicator of whether or not you'll be needing additional amplification beyond what your current source equipment already supplies. TL;DR: you don't need an amp, they're 50ohms, low impedance.

 

Very best,

As I'm assuming this is for a win PC desktop.

Asus Xonar DG ($26, PCI) or DGX ($40, PCI-E) sound card.

Comes with a half-way decent headphone amplifier and Dolby Headphone 5.1 surround sound.
