My goal would be to warm up the mids while still keeping the highs intact as i use them for mixing.
Amps are used more than just for power. Depending on what you get, it can be warmed up. By highs intact, do you mean still detailed?
But yes, phones can be brought to their best w/ an amp. The impedance for w/e you plug it into can affect the sound. Maybe the bellari ha540 (possible w/ a different tube, b/c tubes also can change the sound), but when I saw mixing, maybe not.
scroll down until you see the amping section- should be his 3rd post.
