RE: Best phones for $300'ish

I have the HiFiMan HE400S headphones, which as you probably know are planar magnetic. The usual devices - phone, tablet, laptop, CD player headphone output, etc. - didn't drive them to an acceptable volume level. (I don't listen *that* loud...) I ended up getting a headphone amp and that brought the sound level up to the point that I can really enjoy them.

There was a point here somewhere... Oh right: You should consider whether you can drive whatever headphones you get with the gear you already have. If not, you'll have to factor an amp into your budget.
