Do I need an amplifier?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Dear folks

 

I like to listen mostly to Metal (thrash, death, progressive and so on) with some classical and blues sometimes. The phones I have are a Ultrasone HFI-780 and I have on my way a Grado SR225i.

 

At home, I listen to the music mostly in the computer (Macbook from 2007), which I have connected an external sound card (Line 6 UX1). I bought that soundcard because Line 6 is quite popular for guitarist, and it is a good gadget for recording myself or use guitar amps simulators on the computer. However, I don't know if it is enough for power my headphones.

 

The specifications of the soundcard doesn't help very much: http://line6.com/podstudioux1/specifications.html

 

What do you think?

Try listening to them first, then decide if their loud enough for you or not before you consider an extra amp.
