    I am looking for an AMP and DAC for my Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250 Ohm headphones. (sometimes at certain frequencies I hear a clipping distortion)

    I spent much time looking on other threads and watching reviews on YouTube, but I am still clueless.

    At first, I looked at the FiiO E10K Olympus 2, but then I heard they don't provide enough power to get the best SQ.
    I also took a look at Schiit Fulla, read and viewed some reviews and again the same story as with the FiiO.
    After that, I concluded that I should get a Schiit Magni 2 for 120 euros and later on a 50/40 euros DAC, but that is quite expensive :(.
    I mainly listen to EDM and play FPS, most of my music is MP3 320 kbs and a little FLAC.

    Is the FiiO or the Schiit Fulla enough for the headphones or do I need to spend the extra money to get the Schiit Magni 2 and separate DAC?
    I am currently using onboard audio from my MSI z170a Gaming Pro motherboard with the Realtek ALC1150.

    Thanks! :D
