Technically speaking, if your source (phone/pc/dap) can drive it properly then you don't "need" one. :) Most players/phones have an output of around 70 something ohms. Which is enough to drive most earbuds. So to find out google your earbuds and check for the impedance. :)

Some people though still choose to use an amp even though its not needed per-se, this is just because of preference. So to as with all audiophile related stuff.. trust your own ears :) try to audition some amps and see if you can actually hear a difference, if you can and you like it then you need/want one :)

The PX100-II is pretty durable :) I bought my dad one almost a year ago and its still kicking. Watch out for the pads though on the white units, I've seen them turn yellow after some years.

Hello po! As a student, shempre I'm putting a leash on my wallet. I don't want to splurge to much on a pair of headphones. I'm thinking about getting the sony mdr zx300 are they decent enough? Thanks!

Ah yes Egghead :) I like that store (even though I've only been there once). Congrats on your purchase sir and +1 for trusting your own ears. As we say "trust only your own ears". Just a quick question did you find the Px-100 II a bit.. "boring" sounding? kaya you didn't like it as much?

I've auditioned a pair of these for about 30 mins and I wasn't too impressed with it. The bass was a bit too much for me, but it may be exactly what you want from it. Give it a listen for yourself, if you're listening to techno,hiphop,house, etc I think it'll be okay but for acoustic,rock,jazz etc. I wouldn't recommend it. :)

hmm i find it's sound quality so flat and parang walang dating kahit na mejo nilakasan ko yung volume parang ang flat... tapos yung build niya parang ang liit liit pa O.O for it's price i don't think na para dun siya... feeling ko brand lang ang babayaran ko dun if ever yun ang kinuha ko... so ayun i tested lots of headphones on my budget na below 3000. i also tried the KOSS porta pro pero ganon rin ang feel ko.. ang liit niya tapos sound quality flat lol! iba talaga yung naramdaman ko nung sinuot ko si marley :D :bigmouth:

^well the both the KOSS porta pro and PX-100 are built like "ang liit liit" is because they are portable headphones :p Anyway, congratulations on your purchase, kanya-kanyang trip talaga yan pag dating sa sounds :)

Ahh kinda figured out as much :) the Senns have a relatively veiled sound kasi thats why they appear "flat" ganun talaga signature ng Senns. So looks like lahat ng Senns hindi mo magugustuhan :) Anyway congrats again :D

I like how your cans, amp and laptop are all silver/black :) are you using a dedicated dac sir or are you going laptop -> amp -> headphones?
