    Good AMP/DAC for HE-400

    Alright, thanks. It's down to the Magni/Modi 2s or the NFB.

    Good AMP/DAC for HE-400

    It's a gigabyte z97 gaming 7 motherboard. My audio setup will mainly be for music but I do a little bit of gaming and Netflix. I would probably prefer the USB dac over the sound card. Would you say the schiit magni would be better than the FiiO E11k or would I not notice a difference?

    Good AMP/DAC for HE-400

    Forgot to do this in original post. I've not got the money for one right away but I'm expecting to get $100-200 to spend on it very soon.

    Good AMP/DAC for HE-400

    I just got some HE-400s used in excellent condition for $200. They're coming in the mail soon. Does the HE-400 headphone greatly benefit from amping? And if so, what AMP and DAC should I use?   I currently have a PC Sound Card of ALC1150 codec built into my motherboard.

    Looking for good headphones in my price range

    Thanks! I'm a bit nervous about buying used though. I've never had any audiophile headphones before and I don't know what I'll like. The best I've listened to is a Sony MDR-V6. I'll look into reviews for the W1000X. It's definitely a great deal for them.

    Looking for good headphones in my price range

    Thanks for the reply! I'm leaning towards the Hifiman HE-400. I've read that it can even be driven by an iPod so I wouldn't need an amplifier/dac to start out. Would it be a good idea to get the HE-400s and then buy a Schiit Magni2/Modi2 combo later or would it be better to buy something like...

    I went ahead and pulled the audio specs for my motherboard. I was reading up and some people say onboard audio can be good sometimes.    Realtek ALC1150 Codec Support for Sound Blaster X-Fi MB3 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel

    Looking for good headphones in my price range

    I do use the virtual surround but not too much. Could you recommend headphones/dac/amp combo? I'm thinking PC to DAC to Headphone amp? Is that how the connection would work?

    So the Audiotechnica are better than the DT770 in your opinion? Does that change if I get the 250 ohms version of the 770 with a good amp?

    Looking for good headphones in my price range

    I've got a custom built PC that I'll use with the headphones. I'm planning to buy a headphone amp since i only have the sound card built into my motherboard and the Astro MixAmp. I was looking into Bravo V2 headphone amp. It doesn't need to be portable but that would be a plus.   I would like...

    Looking for good headphones in my price range

    Found them for 158 on amazon. I also have been reading up and the Beyerdynamic DT 770s seem to be good. Which would you recommend? I see in your signature that you have the DT880 which is I presume similar.
