I don't understand this fully, but i know there are headphones that have minimal benefit from a DAC or desktop amp, and I probably cannot use a speaker amp for headphones. I know a DAC and an amp would improve the sound, but I do not know to what extent, or if it's worth the extra money for lower end such as Magni + Modi.
There are still so many questions that I need to read, but without trying it, it's all just theory, so I've decided that I've gotta start somewhere. To keep things simple, I've decided to just buy the Schiit Magni + Modi combo that keeps popping up throughout my research and just find a headphone that's a good match with them.
I am looking for a full size, around the ear, closed headphone to use with my desktop (non-portable)
(possible Loki for DSD is because I don't want my source file to be the weakest link, but I suspect changing Modi to Loki will trigger other changed that cost more than I'm ready for. So please ignore if it's irrelevant)
I've tried my friend's Audio Technica M50, and I like it, except it would be more comfortable if the cup is a bit bigger.
Really appreciate the helps from the community
Thanks in advance
