Portable Amp needed for 250 ohm dt770s

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
After 3 days of debate apron headphones I've decided apon the dt770s (for now) and I need to find a good portable amp for it. I would also be able to like to use it for my computer as well. Currently I'm looking at the cmoybb and the E07k what are the thoughts of the pros over here? Thanks to anyone who reads or responds!

You could consider E 17 (http://fiio.com.cn/products/index.aspx?ID=100000014895351&MenuID=105026002) or C5d (http://www.jdslabs.com/products/84/c5d-amplifier-dac/)

Both are portable.  what is your budget?

 

cmoybb is only an amp. You need a dac/amp to use with computer/laptop.

Ok, well for me I'm kinda pushing my budget so the cheaper the better, I'm trying not to go over 300 (headphones included)

Why would I choose this over the E07K?

E17 has opitcal/Coaxial input, more battery power and DAC of E17 can support 192k/24bit.....

Would the E07K still work fine though for a first time buyer?

Alright, my pay check is coming soon, so I'll decide then. Also you know how I said I keep changing my mind? Well I may possibly want to get the hd598's biggrin.gif

good luck..... we always suggest more options, then you will go nuts.....

If you like bass, stay with DT 770 250 Ohms for good.....

I hate to see people buy 250 ohm headphones as their first foray into portable head-fi. I have just seen to many disappointments because the portable amps struggle to drive those big inefficient cans. I know someone will pop-up and say that their portable amp drives them fine - but it really depends on the volume level you prefer, the ambient noise level, etc. I just don't want to see another post that says: "I got my DT770 and my amp, but I have to turn it all the way up and the bass still seems low." redface.gif

Ok, hanks for the input. Ya this is gonna be my first real step into "audiophile" sound. I've learned more about headphones dacs and amps than I have my whole life! You seem to know what your talking about, what headphone and amp combo would you suggest I get?
Info about me:
Music : Anamanaguchi, jack johnson, walk off the earth, ratatat, wookiefoot, the glitch mob, gorilaz
I do a lot of gaming, I am a student, so I would be taking these with me to school, noise isolation isn't a big deal, I just want the best sounding equipment because I don't want my time at school to force me to have headphones that will limit me in my free time. Don't know If you've seen me around here, but I've been trying to find the right cans for the past 3 days!
Budget: trying to keep the whole setup under $300
I love over ear headphones to death, but I would choose sound performance vs design 9/10 times (as long as they don't look like crap)
Sorry if this was wordy, I'm just a bit overwhelmed by this site tongue.gif

-Thanks for the input sincerely, Schwizzle ;3
