I just picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 ohm headphones and I am really liking them. I am generally used to (and prefer) a little more bass, but I knew what I was getting into going in with these. They are currently hooked up to my Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Professional using the dedicated headphone output that is listed as supporting headphones up to 600 Ohms. I am not having any issues with volume, but I would like a little more bass. I have played with the EQ settings in the Recon3D audio configuration utility and I have gotten them about as high as they can go without sacrificing sound quality, but I find myself still yearning for more.
My question is whether I would get a noticeable improvement in bass by doing with an external amp such as the O2, Magni, Vali, etc. It's not a bank buster to pick up one of these amps, but I would prefer to not bother if there will be no difference in my application.
