Hifiman HE400i 2020 + iFi ZEN Dac
Bundle of dac/amp and new planar magnetic headphone. Great performance combo for desktop audio - usb in from the computer, plug in headphone using the included 6.5mm plug.
Performance can be improved slightly in the future by adding a power supply and by buying a balanced 4.4 mm headphone cable - so there is room to grow and tweak the sound if you are so inclined!
