How does a DAC and an amplifier make a difference?
At 38 Ohms of impedance, the ATH-M50x needs some power to work at its optimum best. What does that mean? It's always better to opt for an amplifier and an DAC when you have a good pair of headphones just because on its own, high-end headphones aren't nearly powerful enough to drive itself. An external amplifier and DAC always brings out the best in them.
Every good headphone can be made better with an amplifier. But why do I need an amplifier?
When you invest in a pair of good headphones, it's a mandate to pair it with the right source device. Ditch lossy mp3 files in your smartphone or laptop computer for high-definition audio. Why should I make the switch?
