I see a lot of mentions of amps. Why exactly would headphones need an amp and do these headphones need one to work? I'm not very well-versed in audio, just looking for something good to listen to music from my PC and play video games.
They will work without an amp. If you do get an amp / dac they will just sound much better.
‘Think of these 6XX’s as an engineless Porsche you may only drive down hill while in neutral. Still pretty fun to drive, but get an engine in that German engineered sucker and goooooooooooooooo! I like this analogy. Perhaps we should request a Porsche 9XX?
To answer your why, these are audiophile headphones which requires a lot more power to produce really awesome results (sound).
Actually it's much darker than the car. Just received mine and any darker it would be black. They look amazing!!! Much nicer than the 600 and 650's IMO.
