I use my DT880 Premium 600-Ohm and DT990 premium 600-Ohm with my Essence STX.
And the DT880 Pro 250-Ohm is an easier headphone to drive then the 600-Ohm headphones.
There are better headphone amplifiers then the STX's, you could sell off the STX, and by an external headphone amplifier.
but you would need something like the Xonar DX (used $55) sound card (to plug the new amplifier into) to match most of the features of the STX.
Here is a thread dedicated to the Essence STX, see what your fellow STX owners have to say.
