Hi, Im very new to high end headphones and was wondering what would be the best option for running some Sennheiser HD 595's. Would running out of my laptop be ok? or through the output on some desktop speakers or should i invest im some kind of amp?
 
Thanks in advance!!!!!

Do you think this would be a good option?

I would personally get an FIIO E7 (portable dac & amp). I'm not sure  that getting a tube amp for the hd595 would be a good idea, the headphone is neutral you don't want to add some coloration, and it is perhaps a bit veiled too  .

You'd get a better  benefit from a better DAC, than from amping. AFAIK, the E9  doesn't have an integrated DAC, but you can get the E7/E9  combo, so that you take advantage of the E7  DAC, and the supposed better E9  amp.

Basically the E7, will replace the onboard soundcard of your laptop, by using an USB  connection.
