What is everyone using for a amp/dac for this? I'll be using the headphone with a modmic 5.
Hi! I might be able to help you out with this. I haven't received the headphones yet, but I've done a TOOOOON of research on DACs and amps prepping for when these arrive. This set will be replacing my Astro A-40's, which came with the MixAmp Pro. Since I'll be using the MixAmp as the DAC (cause of 7.1 surround), all I really needed was an amplifier. After days of research and reviews, I found that the best solo amp at around the $100.00 price range was the Schiit Magni 3. It has way more than enough power for these headphones, and has the most positive reviews of any other amp at this price range. If you need a DAC, you can pair it with the Schiit Modi (also $100.00). I couldn't find any "all in one" items that were recommended for use with 150 ohm headphones. There are several highly rated portables, but even the best ones at $200.00 are recommended for use with 32 ohm headphones. Out of all the reviews I've read, the best "portable" Amp/DAC was the Dragonfly Red. I don't have much experience with audiophile equipment, but this is the information I've gathered from my research.
I'm running the Origen G2, suits my needs and functions great on a desk. Plenty of power too. Also has the option to run speakers from it.
