Hey people,

i'm stumbled across this site a while ago and since then you have made me always want more and more our of my headphones.... unfortunately i'm a student so my budget is rather limited


basically this is my setup>

Computer (gaming +mp3s) -> Audigy 2 Soundcard -> Sennheiser PC150/ and Sennheiser HD280 Pro

and i need an amp for this setup.

so far i have been reccomended either a 'boosteroo', or a CMOY amp made by a user here who comes highly reccomended or else a MINT amp by the same person.

price tags are 31, 50, 100 dollars respectively (cmoy and mint have some mods which i requested & include shipping postage and yada yada)

what do you guys think i should go for?

regs
Kurt

I don't think you need an amp. The 280 doesn't improve much, if at all from an amp, but I can't comment on the PC150. IMHO lower end headphones don't improve much with an amp.

I would suggest saving your money for a better pair of cans or a better source.

Have a look at the review I just did, there's a small section near the bottom about how the headphones sounded unamped.
