Best Headphone and amp for home theater?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking for advice and help for the best Headphones for home theater. I do have the sennheiser HD 555 that i use for gaming on my computer. Where can i get a good amp that will work with a TV to power the headphones? I was going to get a Onkyo 609 receiver and the energy classic 5.1 system but i figured i will use my headphones more since i have the TV in my small bedroom and i won't be able to use the speakers much at night since their are 4 other bedrooms around me. Would the Onkyo 609 receiver be enough to power sennheiser hd 598 or HD 558?

The receiver should be adequate to power your hd555.

When you ask for the best headphones, mention your budget. There are headphones that range all the way to $3000.

If you are simply upgrading the HD555, the next step up would be HD650s.
