Recently purchased these headphones. My first *real* headphone purchase and was worried about being able to drive them. They get PLENTY loud from my laptop (Dell XPS 15 L502x). Mids seem drowned out, drums sound a little tinny, and acoustic guitars seem to have a weird sound at the end of the note, can't quite describe it. In games there seems to be reverb or something, but I'm used to open headphones so I guess that is why. Overall I like the sound but am also a little disappointed.
I'm building a PC (mini itx), and my motherboard has a Creative Sound Core3D chip and a MAX97220 DirectDrive headphone amp. WIll this fare better than my laptop/could it fix any of my problems? I'm not opposed to getting an external amp/dac if necessary but would prefer not to.
Thanks for any help!
