Hi guys,

Some queries on audio stuffs. Hopefully some veterans can assist.

Recently just received a RP-HC500 Panasonic headphone.
Does this pair of headphone needs additional amp/dac?
Btw, whats the long name for dac?

Thanks.

There is already a dedicated headphones thread in kopitiam. Why open another?

Most of your questions have already been answered there.

By the way, DAC means 'digital-to-analog converter'.

Hi Moderator,

Please merge the thread if appropriate.

Thanks photobum for the DAC definition. Unfortunately, the headphone i'm enquiring is
RP-HC500. Each amp/dac should have various pros and cons to complement various model of headphones.

Any suggestion?:)

The best option for you is to go to to either Jaben or Stereo to audition the selection of amp+DAC they have. Bring your own headphone plus your favourite player/laptop along. We can't tell you which one is the best, as we all have different taste.

BTW, I assume that you are talking about portable amp + DAC. The DAC would only be useful if your source is from your computer or laptop. If you are just using a regular mp3 player, then an amp will suffice. Even then, you may find your headphone is good enough without any additional amp.
