Hey everyone,

I got a pair of IE80s a few months ago, and I am looking for some sort of amp to drive them.  I am currently using my Xonar Essence STX, which seems to be really good, but recently I've been reading threads that say the high output impedance (~10ohm) is a bit of a problem for low impedance headphones.  I was thinking of stepping up to something like them Objective 2/ODAC combo.  Is this something I am going to appreciate coming from my current setup, or is it just a  waste of money?  

 

Thanks!

 

 

P.S. I also use a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50s, when I feel like a pair of cans.
