I'll admit i'm pretty new to the "audiophile" world. As cliche as this is, music truly is my world, blah blah blah. I've been craving decent sound through headphones and have tried out a few under $100, and i once bought (then sold) the Beats by Dre Studio **dodges evil sideways glances of judgement** sigh... i know, i know.. I was a victim of the fad. I'm not sure what i expected, but they did not sound like I had hoped. and the leakage was AWFUL! I barely had them turned up and everyone around me knew exactly what I was listening to!
I am CRAVING clear, rich, great sound to accompany my music.
Regardless. I recently purchased a pair of ATH-m50 after reading a great deal of reviews and posts on this site. They should get here tomorrow, and i'm looking forward to it.
Now, to the point of this post...
Before researching these headphones over the last few days, I was not aware that "portable headphone amplifiers" were even in existence! I will primarily be listening with my ipod classic or my macbook..
Is it worth it to pick up a FiiO portable amp to use with these headphones?
Will it help sound quality at all, or will it only make it louder?
