Which Amp for Sennheiser HD 598

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am getting a pair of Sennheiser HD 598s soon,and I am deciding which amp to buy.  

 

My current options:

 

Fiio e6 (great because its small!)

 

Fiio e11

 

Digizoid ZO 2 (bass boost)

 

My main goal is to increase the bass on the headphones.  The Digizoid seems good, although i hear it lets the bass get out of hand, while the fiio e11 keeps the bass tighter and more controlled

 

so i was wondering, which would you use for the 598s to increase bass and still keep it clear

 

thanks

The HD598 are only 50-Ohm and are fairly easy to drive, but using an add-on headphone amplifier should help bring out it's best.

I think the Fiio E11 is a good amplifier for driving lots of headphones.

What source(s) are you plugging the HD598 into?

We have lots of user report to us that HD598 sounds very good with our FiiO E17.

For $27, you can add an Asus Xonar DG sound card, should improve the audio quality over your motherboard's built in audio.

A Fiio E07K can work with your PC (desktop or laptop) and the iPhone.
