Hello all, i'm in the process of getting a new pair of headphones after my Sennheiser HD 558's died out. After some research I ended up picking between BeyerDynamic DT770 PRO 80 and 250 Ohms versions. As far as I can tell the 80 Ohms version have the most bass out of the different versions. As much as I liked my 558s I felt like they needed a bit more bass and somewhat quiet in some situations. And the amount of sound leakage wasn't ideal for summer because of the loud AC in my room. I found a pair of 80 Ohms online for about $120 which I thought were good enough to power with my motherboard's sound card (ASRock Z77 Extreme4). I don't have any experience with AMP/DACs and whatnot but I saw another deal of the 250 Ohms with a FiiO A1 Amp and some other small stuff for about $170. Which deal would be better? Or perhaps just the 250 Ohms with one of the Fiio E series AMPs? I would prefer to spend less than $200 in total. I am mainly going to use them for gaming and music listening (I listen to pretty much most genres). Thanks.
