Would an AMP help?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

I have a beyerdynamic DT 770 but haven't really been noticing too much of a difference compared to $20 headphones/earphones. It's able to output sound and is actually always loud enough at around 25% volume on my desktop, laptop, and even phone. Would an amp help the sound quality in this case?

What is your audio source? 


I will never succumb to the New Cult and I reject the leadership of @Aelar_Nailo and his wicked parrot armies led by @FakeCIA and @DildorTheDecent. I will keep my eyes pure and remain dedicated to the path of the One True; IlLinusNati

Just straight from the audio jack from my desktop (motherboard), or laptop, or even just straight out of my phone.

No, what are you listening to? E.G. iTunes will have a higher sound quality than YouTube music


That's an F in the profile pic

Depends on the source. YouTube is s*it for Hi-Fi listening. Let's be honest, after hearing better sources I wouldn't return to YouTube even if someone paid me.

 

What you need is a DAC and AMP. Yea, quite a bit but worth it (10/10 me rated).

But don't worry I got you covered!

Doesn't cost a lot, has both the DAC and AMP inside and is dirt cheap!

The sound quality is just, wow.

 

If you have a bit more cash, or even more cash, follow up on what Daniel Z. said
