Audio Interface / Headphones recommendations for home studio

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello

 

Im looking for recommendations on an audio interface / soundcard, im willing to spend upto £200 and I don't need any recording inputs, I just want the most accurate sound for my headphones / studio monitors.

 

Any recommendations for studio headphones with an emphasis on accuracy for studio use with a budget of upto £250 also appreciated.

 

Thanks :)

I think my AKG K550 headphones (121 GBP) would be good for accurate sound.

I had been previously looking at those AKG's. What would you recommend out of these 4 - AKG K550, Beyerdynamic DT250, Audio Technica ATH M50 or Shure SRH840?

 

The delivery is a bit expensive for that amp. I was looking at a HRT Microstreamer, it has all I need albeit its tiny. Im not sure what I need just something between my pc and monitors/headphones that doesn't need any recording inputs.

ATH-M50 are bassy headphones, more for an end user who wants to wear out their ear drums.

Not sure on the DT250 of HRT Microstreamer.

After further research it looks like a desktop dac amp may be more suited for my purposes. Can anyone recommend one for under 200 suitable for home studio use (neutral sound) for use with monitors or headphones only.
