Do I have to buy a AMP for K702 65th?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

I am a newbie to here cause I knew head-fi is the most famous(yes, no one of) Headphones site in the world.

 

I used iTunes  to ripping the CD save to aiff file. it's as large as wav, but have all the info and easy to add the cover.

then, I use logic pro to play the music, the interface is apogee duet2.

When I connect HD600 to this system, the sounds is good on Classic  & any other type of music except female vocal.

 

And I have to bought a K702 ANNIVERSARY edition, 

but a big problem is come into being..

the sounds of K702 also very clarity as HD600, BUT, BUT it's feels like a big bucket around in my heard.

 

is it mean I need add a AMP? and, if needed, how about SPL phonitor and auditor?

 

thank you for you take time to read my questions. and wish you happy every day.

You should get an amp it would benefit all your headphones.

You bought the k702 and hd600 without knowing that you need an amp? Jesus!

 

Yes, you do need an amp. One that will probably cost 100+ usd to make the best out of your k702.

Yea if any headphones need an amp, those do (and many others). A lot of people would name off amps that are $500+ but you will hear a difference even with a $100-$150 Fiio, or iBasso amp/dac. You could also look into some Schiit amps.

If you are buying a great can like the K702 65th AE, you need to provide it proper power to support the sound that it's capable of. It's like buying a Porsche and putting $50 tires on it or fueling it with 87 octane. It wont run right.

 

Something as simple as a FiiO E09K will do the trick.

Yea you could do a Fiio e9. If you want/need more you can get a e07 or e17 which can hook up to the e9 and provide more power as well as being a dec.

Get a Schiit Magni instead of an E09K.

Magni/o2 is my vote... Of you need portability I'm a big fan of the e17 (I actually use one as a dac with my o2 and magni... I have both because of the wife lol)

It doesn't add power. It just added DAC functionality.

E9 + Modi is what I would suggest.

For the K702 variations I prefer the E9 to the Magni.

Magni seems too thin and bright to me. Don't ask me how.

 

You could try the E17 with the E9, but I think the Modi sounds a bit better.

Yes, those headphones need an amp, as everyone who has responded in this thread has noted.

I think it is necessary to add a amplifier, improvement is very obvious.
