I need a headphone amp
I would like to find a headphone amp under about $200 and I am so confused about which of the hundreds of models available that I should buy!
I have a Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, and even a Sennheiser 599, which sounds like garbage on my Denon small home theater setup, probably needs an amp for it.
I read even a senn 280 headphone could benefit from an amp.
Ideally, I use a computer, an iPad, the Denon, tv audio out, and even a PlayStation 2, over the weeks. I have, so far, a mini-jack cord for each system and each cord can plug into my headphone in turns.
Somehow, in my own idealistic mind, I would like to see a headphone amp that is wired into the electric socket. For my computer, I would plug the soundcard cord into this amp, and also with each cord, from my other devices, as I used them. Seemingly, no such luck, so far, in finding such an amp.
I either find a computer-driven USB amp or a battery-driven portable amp.
I never want to turn on my computer just to listen to my iPad!
Batteries? I do not want to change batteries every few days either if that is the case with a battery-operated amp. Batteries would work if I only need to change the batteries once in a while and this battery amp is of good quality.
could someone recommend a good headphone amp for me?
