So I'm new to this forum and new to the higher-end world of audio as well. Please bare with me while I "noob" my way through this.
I've always been a big music/movie/video game enthusiast and had always used basic audio gear for it until recently I decided to purchase the Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250 headphones after reading some amazing reviews about them.
I received them in the mail today but my question is what equipment do I need to make full use of them while using them with my PC as well as iPod touch? I've been reading up on this quite a bit and I've found that with an iPod you will need a portable amp (something I lack any sort of knowledge about) in order to further power the headphones and make them sound better. Is this true?
Also, will I need something like this as well for my computer? I plugged the headphones into my computer today, via the motherboard, and quickly realized that there was no way that I was hearing their full capacity. I was wondering if this has something to do with the fact that I was plugging them into a motherboard as opposed to a sound card or something?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully you can help me out!
