Headphone amp to pair with Sennheiser HD600's?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am in the market for a new headphone amp for my pair of Sennheiser HD600's.

 

Any recommendations? Budget wise I would like to spend less than $400 unless there is something just outside of that price range which is SIGNIFICANTLY better.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Atom amp or thx 789, I had a Valhalla 2 and didn't think it was worth the premium over the atom amp

Lehman Audio linear, would be on the short list

Need a DAC too?

Hi Bingineer,

 

I did not realise that a DAC would be required. I was hoping the headphone amp would be both the DAC and the driver of the headphones. Please forgive my ignorance, I am new to all of this.

There’s a version of the Lehman audio linear with the dac, although the dac section is basic

JDS Element

Audio GD 11.28/11.38

Schiit Stack

 

Chord Mojo for a also portable option too.

If a dac is a requirement, then chord mojo, would be a must to audition for $599 new. Very hard to beat as a headphone dac and amp package

An EL DAC by JDS is good too, Grace SDAC of you're on a tight budget.

Yeah. More so as unit that can be portable.

 

It doesn't put out huge power, DAC is clean though. Like a NFB 11.28 puts out whopping power compared, around 4x more power.

Ok, so I found the mojo  package in a store in town,

$2000 is too much.

 

Also travelling with my HD600's is not a factor / thing for me. I only use these at home with my computer.

No, they are $599 retail.

 

The Poly is a add on streaming unit.

 

Can be had $400 or so in these classified forums.

 

Schiit Stack or a JDS Element would suit you. New in your budget for both I think, used easily.

Mojo will drive the HD600 (Sensitivity 100 dB/mW) to ear splitting levels with ease (and low distortion).

Yes it does. Doesn't mean he will have HD600 forever though :P

 

Mojo is over his budget new too. So depends how strict he is on that.

 

Ill be getting a Mojo soon, price is too good now. Mojo and Focal clear for $2000 brand new. World's gone crazy.
