Hello Oppo. The time has come to improve my audio experience and replace my Logitech UE 4000 for something more upscale.

Headphones:

I'm pretty much sold on the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Manufaktur, as they seem to be very good neutral headphones. I don't like headphones were the bass is boosted. Made in Germany.

They can also be customized to any color you like:

Price: 432 USD - 64.80 USD discount = $367.20 USD.

Can be chosen in 3 different impedance 32, 250, and 600 ohms. I'm choosing 250 ohms.

DAC and AMP.

So everyone recommends a dedicated DAC for better sound compared to the internal sound card. My current computer is a 15 Retina MBP. As for the DAC, I'll be choosing the Schiit MODI 2 UBER. USB and optical input. Seems like a good deal, metal body and made in the USA.

Because of the higher impedance, an AMP is recommended, and I'm going for the Schiit MAGNI 2. Also made in the USA.
