I'm also on a budget, I would prefer to spend up to $50, however I could go up to $80 maybe? Or something like that. Which would be the equivalent of 30-50 pounds, as the price I'm gonna pay is gonna be from amazon.co.uk (European). If it's impossible to get a decent quality amp/sound card for these headphones (so that I would actually be able to listen to them properly, as good as they are, without distortions or whatever else poor amps 'offer'), how much do I need?
I will be buying both the sound card or an amp and the headphones in around 2-4 weeks.
P.S. At the moment both with on-board and the sound card that I have I can hear static in my headphones. It's only active when I plug them into my PC, not to an MP3 or whatever, but to my PC. That being said, I presume it's because of the hardware. The static is quite annoying really, so I'm worried about buying a sound card - presumably it'd make sense for the static to still be there anyway, although it's possible that it'd still be there even if I'd connect an amp to my on-board/xtremegamer x-fi anyway. If anybody knows how to solve it - please do say, I haven't found any info online that'd help so far.
Oh, and ask if you have any questions - I don't mind answering anything.
