I am heading off to college in a couple of months and I am interested in purchasing a nice set of headphones before I go. At the moment I have been considering the HE-400 with some sort of cheap amp/dac to pair with it such as a Fiio product or a JDS Labs Cmoy.
I will be listening to apple lossless files off of my laptop so I need an amp that can connect to either a headphone out port or preferably a usb port. For genres I enjoy listening mainly to jazz along with a little bit of classic rock and electronic music.
Any other suggestions?
