Under 50 dollar amp for DT990 250Ohm pros?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just bought a pair of these and I thought my marantz SR240 would be able to handle them, not even close. They are louder from my onboard audio.

I really need an amp to power these at 50 dollars or less. The more under 50 bucks the better. This would help the bass right? Because while good, I am just not feeling it, they feel more akin to a pair of HD558s right now.

I was looking at the Fiio E11, would this be enough?

Also I will never use this anywhere besides my computer. I don't need a portable amp, so if anyone has any non portable models that are cheaper, please say so.

The E11 would work well for powering those headphones smily_headphones1.gif

Alright, one more thing. I have a sony STR DH500 and I used it to test the headphones and they sounded pretty nice but the bass wasn't up to where I wanted it. It wasn't bad but I wanted more impact. Using that receiver, was I seeing 100% of my headphones performance? I can't find the specs for the thing anywhere.

Who knows? Some receivers work better than others for headphone output, and that would be considered a budget entry level receiver as well.

The E11 has a bass boost that a lot of people like.
