Hello i need a new amp, as ive searched ans searches and seen great reviews, i cannot choose at all.. heard good things about fiio zo2 and sonar essence.. but i have no idea what is the better purchase, my budget is bout 200dollars, and i use the beyerdynamic dt 770 80ohm, and i am a basshead. I listen mostly to spotify youtube etc, as downloading songs are painfull.. please advice help!

My recommendation is JDS Labs C5...under $200, excellent bass boost feature, good battery life, excellent build quality, excellent customer service. This is a very popular amp here, and very highly rated at this price point...plenty of info here for you to look at.
is this good with dt 770? concidering it does not give warm sound, i think someone told me dt 770 is nice with warm sound+bass boost or is this my imagination?
I can't say because I have never had any experience with the DT 770. The C5 is supposed to be very neutral. From my experience I would agree with this observation. I primarily use it with the Shure SE535's and B&W P5. My experience with the C5 is limited to these.
so do you have a reccomendation that would give great bass, as the dt770 really like bass

An amp is only going to help the headphone deliver the bass it can deliver. If you are using the 80 ohm DT770 from your PC, then adding an amp may help a little bit - but it's not going to make it sound like you are at a Skrillex dance party. I think peoples expectations in this regard can be seriously higher than reality.
oh damn :) how do i get it to "skrillex party" or is this not possible? really new with this dac amp thing
