    Starter AMP or DAC? Or both??

    Hey everyone! I have a pair of House of Marley Rebel Headphones, and was thinking of getting a pair of AKG K 240; anyway, I was wondering what would be the best way to eliminate the hiss that I hear when I have my phones plugged into my laptop, and doing so hopefully under $50.00 any ideas?

    Newb questions about amps

    So, a few days ago, I bought the House of Marley Rebel headphones, and also saw an Asus Xonar U3 and was thinking of buying it, but was unsure as to what an amp actually would do- I also did not want to risk blowing my headphones up with too much power. So, perhaps someone could explain what an...

    Tablet Docks....

    Or another idea I had was to buy some PC speakers, like the Creative Gigaworks T20 and just plug them into the headphone jack and use them as speakers for my kindle, in which case I wonder what the best sounding PC speakers that are smallish are..

    Tablet Docks....

    OK, so I was told that if I asked about docks, I would probably get a better response, so here we go.

      I plan to use them mainly at home, from a laptop computer or desktop, and for now, I am not using an amp. I would prefer for my music not to be heard by others around me but if it "leaks" a tad, its ok. I listen to everything from Barry Manilow to Atreyu, from Cirque du Soliel to Dean Martin...

    Is it my headphones that causes this sound?

    That is why I asked...I was unsure as to what it was and if it had a name or if its just a Youtube thing; pardon my lack of adroitness with such technical terms.

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II

    I let my little sister, who is 15 years old, listen to my Pioneer Steez; she thinks her generic $5 earbuds are just great...she did not think my steez were any better. She stinks lol

    Is it my headphones that causes this sound?
