Best amps for Beyer DT770 Pro 80 around 200?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Am looking to get a beyer dt770 for gaming/movies, but I'm not really sure what amp/dac combos I should get so i can get 

 

a: the most bang for my buck

b: while still being cheap

 

I did some research and I guess there is the fiio e7 and e10, but they are a bit expensive for me, since they are $70-75, and the DT770 that I found is $170. Are there any other alternatives for me?

 

Thanks!

Heya,

 

Asus Xonar DG - $30. Dolby headphone, onboard opamp for amplification. Good to go.

 

Very best,

By the way, would the out on my Bose Companion 5 work?

Chances are is would......but

A Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z (SB1500, retail box) sound card, $90, comes with a separate headphone amplifier output and separate line-output (speakers).

In general audio quality should improve for both headphones and Bose speakers, plus the Sound blaster Z headphone amplifier output should do a better job of driving the DT770s.
