I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, but just a guy who seriously enjoys listening to music. I bought these headphones as an upgrade from my Sennheiser Game One headphones. I didn't think I'd get them as soon as I did, because I was planning on getting an amp before their arrival (the drop estimate for shipping was August, so I received them about 3 months early).
I've been listening to these for several weeks now and I have to say that they do sound great, even without amplification. The accuracy and warmth is IMMEDIATELY noticeable as someone coming from consumer grade headphones...even through my phone. I've mostly been listening through my soundblaster sound card though, and I've had so many goosebump inducing moments because of these headphones. It's truly music as you've never heard it before. The detail level is just incredible. If it was picked up on a mic, you will hear it. Again, all of my experience thus far has been WITHOUT the help of an external amplifier. Don't be dissuaded from buying these because you can't also afford an amp right away. They sound great anyway, and that means the ceiling is extremely high for just how good they can be when you can afford to get amped up!
Now if I can just stop listening to music long enough to research amps...
