First, I consider myself a person who appreciates good quality sound. I love it. All my cds are properly, securely ripped to flac and I'm fairly educated on all that audio quality jazz.
I'm looking at the beyerdynamic dt990 as I've heard great things about them. The problem is, I can't really afford to dip into the high fi world just yet, and because of that I'm thinking about getting the 32 ohms version so I could easily drive them without a pricey amp, correct?
Will the 32 ohms sound just as good as the higher ohm versions? Is the difference substantial or minimal? Will I get sufficient volume from them when i plug them into an iMac? Or will I still need an amp to power them?
Or if anyone could convince me to go for the 250 ohms and suggest a cheap, yet solid amp for under $150 that would work flawlessly with an 09 iMac.
So basically, will the 32 ohms still be a great pair of headphones and worth the money? Do I need an amp for it?
Should I go for the 250 ohms and just fork up more for an amp?
Any help is much appreciated.
