AMP for DT770 Pro 250 Ohm?

I just ordered the DT770 Pro 250 Ohm, I have no experience with high Ohm headphones. Do I need a amp for these headphones? If so what would be the best option under 50 bucks. Thanks. -Ethan

Hi Ethan! I suggest you start with the Dacmagic XS or Dragonfly Black, or if you are willing to spend more, the Dragonfly Red. You can read online fora for more recommendations. If you are patient to look around, you may find a used one in good condition.
You don't necessarily need a headphone amp, but a good one will make your headphones sound a lot better than your computer or music player's internal soundcard or DAC. But tbh there's not that many good ones around the $50 mark. A good heaphone amp/DAC will start at $100 or so.
