Q: Do I need/want a headphone amp to power my headphones?

A: Amplifiers aren't just about powering your headphones, but also do a lot to dictate the tone of your headphones. Some headphone amplifiers have built in equalizers or will boost or suppress certain frequencies. GoXLR works well with most headphone amplifiers. You can run a 3.5mm cable from the headphone out of GoXLR into the Line In on your headphone amp to provide more power to higher-impedance headphones or to dial in a specific tone style.(edited)
