With the wife also working from home these days I am seriously considering adding a pair of headphones to my 2-channel setup and wondering if you guys could shed some light.
My current setup:
DMP > DSD Sr > YS-Audio A3 Preamp > First Watt J2
The A3 tube preamp does not have a headphone jack but has two fully balanced outputs, so I could use that to connect to an external headphone amplifier.
Here’s the rear panel of the preamp:
I have not gone out to try different headphones but I know it has to be a closed back so I can enjoy some music while the wife goes on conference call. I am looking at the Dan Clark Audio AEON2 as it is said to be comfortable on the head. But feel free to recommend similar comfortable closed back headphones.
My question is, is that the best way to connect a headphone amplifier? And if so, which headphone amplifier would you recommend for the Aeon2?
FYI I have a pair of old Sennheiser HD555 (open back) and a pair of Bose QC Bluetooth that I used for travelling back in the day.
Thank you all!
