So I am getting my first pair of entry level audiophile cans for gaming or at least the best cans I have ever owned
I am going to be getting the Beyerdermic DT880 Pro (250 Ohms). I know they arent the first choice for gaming cans but my friend is selling them to me for $50 as he is upgrading and there to hard to pass up at that price as I have heard nice things about them.
I would like to spend as little as possible while still getting something that can drive these things decently. Budget is $100-$200.
I would prefer just to purchase a sound card as I do not have one yet, just the on board one for my PC.
Is an amp really necessary to drive these cans and get the potential out of them, or could I invest in a mid to high end sound card that would drive these just fine?
Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated, love the forums, mostly just a lurker but I know there's a lot of very knowledge people here and I do appreciate any help as I am new to this.
