Need help choosing headphone amplifier

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm new to the whole audiophile thing, I've been planning to get a new amp. My price range is around $500 give or take and I would mostly be using the amp with a HD 650 and a HD-25. I listen to a huge range of music but mostly rock, jazz and electronic. I've been looking at amps around my price range but I'm not exactly sure which one would fit the HD 650 because I've read how certain amps don't do well with certain headphones (how does work?). Forgot to add that i'm looking for a AMP/DAC combo. Thanks in advance

One of the best value-for-money AMP/DAC combo is the Fiio E17. Plus it has several output options.

I agree the Fiio E17 is very good for a budget headphone amp, I also have the Fiio E07K Andes and use it as a DAC off my laptop for much better sounding music.

Do you need a portable dac/amp? Or can you use a desktop amp/dac setup?

What are you using now as your source? Do you have a headphone amp?
