Hello, all.
 
I just purchased the SuperLux 668B's. I read some pretty good reviews, and for the price figured I'd give them a shot. I already had a AT ATR2500 USB MIC, and I needed a headphone to go with it for my XBOX 1
 
The negative reviews I read were saying that the stock earpads were not very comfortable, so I was wanting to see what people recommend that I get?
 
Also, with these headphones will I need a DAC/AMP to power these? If so, what do you recommend?
 
Thanks!

For use with a gaming console, Astro Mix-amp.

  Thanks for the response, PurpleAngel.
 
It looks like that device is $130. Is there anything cheaper I can get?

 
A used Astro mix-amp.
 
Or even cheaper, a used Turtle Beach Ear Force DSS ($20?).

  One more question,
 
Do you think it's necessary to have a headphone amp in this topology?

For driving the 60-Ohm 668B, not really.

I tried the Cosmos earpads that Amazon sells, and I find that my ears sweat & not so comfortable. My ear lobes start to hurt after about 30 minutes. 
 
Is there any other ear pads I can try?
 
Thanks!
