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?

Unless it's just hissing because the headphones are too efficient and there's an impedance mismatch, there's a chance the hiss will still be there if you use only an amp, since the signal in analog form will still come from the same soundcard. Sadly I can't think of a device with both USB DAC and headphone amp in it for $50. Ibasso D-Zero is a bit over $100, Fiio E07K I think is around the same price range.
