I currently am looking to buy an amp for my soon-to-be-owned sennheiser 660s, and I"m currently at a bit of a crossroads.
Since my 660s are probably gonna be mostly for music or single-player games, I was thinking of getting an entry-level Schitt Magni 3+/Heresy for a cheap $100. But when I AM gaming I’ll be using a 3.5mm cable with mic (e.g. VModa boompro, Modmic, THX Panda + mic) so I’m also considering whether I should open up my budget and get the Mayflower Arc MkII for $250.
So really what I’m asking is, how big of a difference will an amp (and a DAC i suppose for the mayflower) affect gaming audio? Because if it really isn’t a big difference, I might not limit my options to the Mayflower and just go for a cheap amp. But if the difference is at least noticeable (and in a more competitive sense like hearing footsteps better or smth lke htat) I might just go for Mayflower instead.
All advice appreciated
