To begin, I'm sorry if the answer to this question is obvious. I've read through some other threads and while I think I just need an amp for my phone I figured I'd ask before I actually buy anything.
My M9 has been having issues with my Sony MDR-7506's. No matter the audio source (though I usually use Spotify) I get pops and clicks in the audio, similar to what can be heard in this video around the 19 sec mark:
(The man in this video describes it as clipping, though I took clipping to be something more akin to overall distortion, not just random pops or clicks)
Based off of some other threads my instinct tells me that my phone isn't powerful enough to support the headphones and I just need a decent amp. Is this true or does the issue lie elsewhere?
Thanks in advance!
