I joined this most recent drop and am very looking forward to getting these! They're going to be my first ever pair of headphones.
I'm using a 2017 MacBook Pro --- what are the recommended DAC/AMPs I should get for these headphones, or do I not need any at all?
Thanks everyone :) :)
You most likely will need an amp off a laptop.
I watched a video of a guy claiming that the iPhone 7+ had enough juice to power the headphones. However, I don't know if that's enough to reach their full potential. I just so happen to have the 2017 MacBook Pro as well so I'm interested to see what AMPs are recommended.
you will sure need one. Just picked up my pair today. They sound OK even without an amp, but you're not using them at their full potential, and if you're used to hi-fi music, you'll clearly feel that they are a bit quiet and underpowered.
Regarding recommendations, I just ordered an iFi Micro iDSD Black label, it should have more than enough power to drive them and make them shine, but it is on the expensive side.
You need an amp, check out the SMSL sAp-II pro or the Sabaj PHA2. Both are cheap but sound good.
