Audio interface + headphone amp combo

OK SO LONG STORY SHORT ..


I just purchased a 4i4 3rd Gen focusrite audio interface


I’ve also purchased DT 770 Pros 250 Ohm and some DT 990 Pro 250 ohms


I have done weeks of research and I’ve realized that I probably should get a headphone amp to drive my headphones to their full potential


DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A HEADPHONE AMP FOR MY HEADPHONES??

TL;DR


WHAT HEADPHONE AMP RECOMMENDATIONS DO YOU HAVE FOR DT 770/DT 990 (both pro and both 250 ohms) FOR A COMBO WITH MY 3rd GEN FOCUSRITE 4i4??



SN: IF YOU HAVE A SIMILAR SET UP, HOW WOULD YOU RUN THE HEADPHONE AMP TO THE AUDIO INTERFACR FOR THE BEST CLARITY (THRU HEADPHONE INPUT OR LINE OUTPUT??/BALANCED OR UNBALANCED CABLES?)


SN: IF YOU HAVE A SIMILAR SET UP, COULD YOU PLEASE LET ME KNO IF A HEADPHONE AMP IS EVEN REQUIRED? BEEN RESEARCHING FOR WEEKS AND AT THIS POINT IM GETTING FRUSTRATED FROM LACK OF INFORMATION/MIXED REVIEWS

thank you again

Ok I guess this is a commonly asked question and I’ll just keep doing research

Did this research include you actually plunging the headphones in and listening to see how they sound? This is the only research you need and this will tell you how they sound and if you need additional power. You can also look at the headphone specs to see if they can power a 25 ohm headphone.

Nope, but all CAPS are obnoxious.

Plug them in and listen to them
