    Audio interface + Headphones help

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi guys

    Advice needed. I bought some DT880 headphones (32 ohm version). Even at 32 my old Roland UA25 USB interface can't power them. So my question is:

    - any recommendations for a powered headphone amp?

    OR

    - Given that the interface will need updating when I buy a new computer (its not compatible with W10 as far as I know), any recommendations for an interface that also powers headphones?

    Only thing I'd say is I'm a hobbyist, so please no "this kit is good, costs 2 grand" recommendations

    Cheers!

    Joseph

    Try Focusrite's Scarlett 2nd Gen series.

    Thanks. But will that actually power the headphones properly? As far as I can tell the Scarlett stuff is USB powered.

    Yes. Do your research.
