  • Improve loudness on Samson SR950

    I got Samson SR950 they sound fine , no issue with quality but the problem is the output is low from my PC motherboard. How can I make them sound louder? I don't want to spend more then $50-60. I just listen to music and play games I am not into any studio stuff.

    I saw some amps but they are tiny portable rechargeable but I will be using headphones on my desk so I can get proper amp with wall adapter. I assume full size amp will be better then those small portable ones and you don't have to recharge them.

    I don't know what will be better an Amp or PCIe sound card or DAC/amp combo or something else.

    Schiit Audio has a few B-stock units of the Fulla2 DAC/AMP for $69. That would probably do the job. I tried one and was pretty impressed with it for $99

    For $99, I know a little out of your price range, you could get a new Schiit Audio Fulla 3 or an Audioquest Dragonfly Black. I use a Dragonfly Black with some difficult to drive Beyerdynamic DT770Pro 600 ohm headphones on my office PC and really like that.
