Beyerdynamic dt770 pro 250 ohm with Focusrite 2i2- not enough power

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I thought the Scarlette Focusrite 2i2 would power the headphones better( Bass wise Specifically), however it doesn't satisfy my needs, to be honest it is quite disappointing. I produce music too, which is extremely difficult when you don't necessarily know what is going on in the low range. Even when I listen to the biggest tracks, I have to turn the volume right up full, to get little bass response. 

Any suggestions on what I could do/ purchase would be greatly appreciated :)

The really low frequences 30-60 hz do tend to respond a lot better, but not much other than that,

Any suggestions on what I could do/ purchase to enhance my experience would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you :)

Thanks for the reply, I was looking into the Magni, seems pretty good for the price. Would it be possible to connect that to my external soundcard( 2i2)? I don't know much about connecting equipment like that.  I bought the soundcard because I use a laptop,  and I need the external soundcard when producing music.
