Portable for Sennheiser 580?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi,

I got a "Electric Avenues PA2V2" for my Sennheiser HD 25-1 II. Works well on the bus.

 

At home I have a pair of Sennheiser 580. I relize that the Electric Avenue is not strong enough to drive them.... When I connect to an old receiver's headphone out they really start to sound good!

 

I'm looking around for a headphone amp whith specs something like this:

- Good power to drive the HD 580

- I mainly listen to jazz, so clean sound. But should deliver clear strong bass when needed.

- To be used stationary most of the time, permanently plugged in to 220V.

- But I also want the option to have run on batteries

- Size can be a little bit bigger than the Electric Avenue

- To be driven by Ipod gen 5 240 GB/Rockbox, mainly FLAC

- DAC etc not required. In/output, power, volume is enough

- 100-150 USD maybe. Or used on ebay maybe?

 

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

 

Regards,

Jakob
