That's the reason i amplify them. I don't have pros or cons regarding amps but for me they are useless facing personal listening with earphones. Perhaps one day i give them a try. i have a cd of Supertramp Crime of the century that has been digitally remastered and the sound is clipping almost in the whole cd.that was a bad work made by engeneers. The only thing i want to know is i'm i doing a good choice buying the 886 dap and the h3 earphones?.
Yes, as long as you get the H3 cheap (remember they were originally at 400 pounds!!!, on amazon at 160~ something right now) it's a very welcome upgrade, at least in my case, from the XBA-30, which were already very good headphones. You have more a far less tiring, "speakers" sensation with them, rather than just being headphones. Note, in my opinion, you have to tone down the bass, it is much in stock form... after that, it becomes precise.
