    So I got my headphones a couple of years ago, and I've been using them exclusively on my PC. They've been powered by a Fiio E07K, which I've been happy with, but then again I don't have much to compare it too, as I have limited experience with semi high-end headphones and accessories. However, the Fiio has started acting up a bit, creating a buzzing noice through the headphone which goes away when i unplug and plug back in the amp. Due to being located in Norway, I'm somewhat limited in what I can get my hands on through importing, as the shipping is rough as well as an added tax of 25% on the product as well as shipping.

    • Budget - $100-200. I don't expect magic at this price, but it is what it is.
    • Source - Only PC use, no need for portability. Headphones are as mentioned Beyerdynamic DT880 250 ohm
    • Uses - I play video games, watch movies and listen to music. No professional use at all, but I appreciate good quality audio.
    I've added a few product underneath that I can get my hand on in my country, and also the local price, and I would greatly appreciate if someone would take time out of their day to look them and perhaps give other obvious suggestions that are worth taking a look at:

    • Shiit Fulla 2 - $180
    • Shiit Magni 3 - $193 - Do I really need a DAC, you tell me.
    • FiiO E10K Olympus 2 - $135
    • Pro-Ject Head Box S - $145
    • Fiio Q1 Mk2 - $193
    • Fiio E18 - $180
    • JDS Labs Objective2 - imported after tax $193. Again, no DAC in this one
    I don't know much about headphone amps or DACs, so all feedback is greatly appreciated.

    If your into FPS games, try and get a (used?) Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z.
