New here. Need advice on Headphone amp

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking about buying a pair of HD700 headphones. I will primarily be using it from my computer. I will also be using it on an Macbook. I was wondering what amp to buy for it. I have been considering getting a Little Dot MK3 for it. Will i need a Dac as well? It will be primarily used for Music. I listen to most Genres but concentrate mainly on Drum and Bass / Dance. Thanks in advance.

A cheap pair of HD518. I wont get the amp unless i get the HD700's though.

ok - have you considered other headphones too? in my opinion you may be better off getting something like the hifiman he-400 as you should be able to run that relatively well just out of your mac (won't need the amp/dac although they would still help). also it should suit your tastes quite well.

 

if you are set on the hd700, this thread may help

Used Audio-GD NFB-11.32, external DAC and Headphone amplifier, $265.

Should be able to drive whatever headphones you get and make them sound nice.

My brand new Audio-GD NFB-15.32 DAC & amp ($298) arrived yesterday, sounds nice,

the 11.32 should sound even better.
