Hey guys, I'm new here and joined because I was thinking about some things.
Recently I ordered a pair of AKG Q701s and I've heard numerous reports that you need an amp to "drive" them properly. I decided I'd get the headphones and decide from there. I mainly listen to rap music but I love the clean and crisp sound that these headphones give everything. It's just that some genres (like rap and dance) could use a bit more "oomph" on the bass end of things.
I mainly listen to music on my 160GB iPod. I usually listen to lossless music so I don't think I'm doing these headphones injustice or anything. My question is, what amps would you guys recommend to give the AKG Q701s a more pronounced bass without making the bass muddled and distorted? Keep in mind that I usually listen to music on an iPod.
