Using a ASUS Xonar ST sound card with integrated headphone amp. The headphone amp is rated to drive up to 600 ohms.
Looking to pair the sound card up with some Beyerdynamics headphones (DT880's or DT990's, haven't decided).
Leaning towards the 600 ohm versions to maximize the potential of the headphone amp but have some concerns after reading feedback on forums. Apparently, the amp on the sound card is not that great and people are having trouble getting volume at that high level.
Question is: should I play it safe and get the 250 ohm Beyerdynamics?
Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.
