Brought the last drop of these ones. Very comfortable headset. The cans are massive, much larger than I predicted. I will be getting a DAC and AMP (Schitt Magni and Modi). I do not have a problem with the loudness but sounds bland without a dedicated AMP/DAC, but could be due to my shitty motherboard. Any questions, please reply to this.
so these wouldn't sound great without an amp/dac? How would they be just hooked up to my laptop/desktop?
I cannot speak for what hoodchild is saying, but what I understand is that these are reference headphones. They produce a very flat sound, even though the bass boost meant to probably undo that. These are exactly what reference headphones are meant to do but it wouldn't be the best for music listening, unless you prefer it this way.
I own the blacks but same thing... They sound great IMO. My first impressions when I plugged them in with out any amp/dac was... oh, They get loud enough so I dont know what people are saying about them being "not loud enough" I mean im no audiophile but.They sound great and I would like to get amp/dac to see the deference. So if you getting them with out amp/dac, most wouldnt recommend it, And I was trying the get the money for amp/dac but that's not my priority anymore. Of course YMMV.
Dude vantec makes a 7.1 usb external sound card i used it with my 598's and it works fine before i bought me a av receiver. Its like 20 bucks on amazon
