Amp to Use With AKG Q701?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Okay so I plan on buying a pair of AKG Q701 headphones. I will use these with my Behringer 502 for studio mixing. And with PC for gaming with Astro Mixamp and with iPod Touch 4 for music. I plan on getting a pair of closed back headphones for portability so no need to say how much the 701's leak. I want something around $100 or so. And in which order do you think would be better for sound. Oh and this is for gaming. With music I will just use the Amp. Computer - Amp - Astro Mixamp  OR Computer - Astro Mixamp - Amp ?

An E17 does the job very well for me.

I would say to get a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z (or Zx on sale) sound card, you would then have no need to use your Astro mix-amp. with your PC.

 

But you can also ask on this thread about amplifying the Q701 (in case you decide against the Z sound card).
