Amp/ DAC+Amp for using headphones on laptop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Heyo,

I recently bought an xmg laptop, and I'm interested in buying some decent balanced headphones around 120EUR (Currently shooting for sennheiser 350se) for use in gaming and some music.

I was looking to accompany those with an amplifier like FiiO E6, but I'm wondering if it would be better to go with a DAC/Amp instead, like the E10. I'm assuming the laptop's sound card is pretty bad and I'm not sure simply an amp can save it.

 

Currently living in Switzerland if it helps.

 

Cheers

On-board sound isn't that bad nowadays actually...the E10 would definitely sound better, but probably not to the degree that you're anticipating.
