What kind of amplifier would you recommend for these?
My android phone, my Logitech speakers and my Kenwood receiver don't put out enough power to drive these headphones. I was using Sony in-ear headphones before and my mp3 player and phone could provide enough power for them, but these seem to be more power hungry. Currently I'm using these with a Roland quad capture USB recorder, the quality is really good but the sound level doesn't reach high enough to my liking even with volume cranked up to max.
Check out the following brands of Headphone Amplifiers. Audioengine, Creek, FiiO, Grado, Musical Fidelity (V-CAN MKII),Po-Ject, Rega. The impedance of your ATH-M50s Headphones is 38 ohms, making them easy for most dedicated amplifiers to drive.
