what would be a good dac for these headphones under 150 USD?
Fulla 2 or SMSL M6. It's up to you, there's not actually something much better than another for that price point. Get the one which fits better on your setup.
You won't find anything that can power these at those price levels.
The HD6XX needs a strong chain to be built around it. If you don't have the chain or don't want to get it, it's actually not very good, in fact it will sound far worse than other headphones around that price range.
In a pinch, you can just grab an amp. Get the Magni 2 Uber, it should be right around your price range. It won't fully power these either, but it will do about as solid a job as you can get at that range.
He says he need and amp/dac not a standalone Amp neither dac.
Yeah well, I'd like to buy a Ferrari for $100. Not going to happen though.
For a 150$ budget he may as well start with just an amp, JDSLABS O2 Objective Desktop edition or Schiit Magni 2 and later on add the corresponding Dac (JDSLABS OL DAC or Schiit Modi2).
