I'm purely speculating but I would say those cans would benefit from a higher output, lower noise DAC/amp than this NuForce. I would suggest at minimum the FiiO E10k v2 or the JDS Labs Objective + DAC.

I don't have the NuForce, but I can say my DT-770 250Ohm are definitely hard to drive. I use a Headpod 4, which is rated for 400mw @ 250 ohm, and it drives them painfully loud at half gain & full volume. The actual cans are rated for a max 100mw power handling. You probably want to be looking at amplifiers that aren't powered by the host's USB port with those cans.

No way, this has a super low power output.

That wasn't what you asked for :D I took the time to make this handy chart and BTW, the FiiO E10k V2 is actually CHEAPER than this NuForce (at retail, and street it's only $7 more).

Will do. Feel free to fill in any spec blanks unavailable in the drop in a reply to this and I'll make sure to include them.

I bought one on Amazon just a few weeks ago for $115. Pretty sure there were on Massdrop for around $65 a few weeks ago. No one I know of has any in stock unfortunately.
