Need Amp for Beyerdynamic DT 880s- Any suggestions up to $400?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I was thinking of buying the Beyerdynamic DT 880s and need advice on which headphone amp might be a good match.  I am pretty new to the game so not sure if any portable have sufficient power or I need a desktop amp.

 

The ones I am considering are the: Bellari HA 540 Tube amp, Creek Audio OBH-11, Ibasso D-10, Musical Fidelity V-CAN II, Schiit Aasgard 2.

 

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Well now I am considering Beyer DT 860s and the AkG K 702s also. What is your take on those headphones? I read the DT 860s were better for portable devices.

As for the amp just saw the Furutech ADL GT 40 which it said could handle all levels of power.

Not sure what ohms

What sources are plugging this stuff into?

Just going to plug in the headphones and a portable music player.

sorry to be that guy, but...

 

a 400 dollar headphone will sound much better than a dt880 with the best possible amp to go with it. Amp's don't provide THAT much improvement. At least that's what i'd do.

Ok then how about the Sennheiser HD-650 and the Furutech amp? I think the ohms on the Sennheisers are about 250

I do like the Schiit Asgard 2, and should be able to power all those headphones fine.

 

If you go with 600 ohm DT 880's there might be better amp options, but 250 ohms would be fine.

I read that Nad D 1050 is a good match for the DT880. It's over your limit but it is a DAC as well as an amp.
