Was wondering if any of you had any suggestions for any decent audio interfaces to drive my AKG K 240 headphones, I'm using a laptop with pretty good specs for EDM production. Preferably between $100~$150.
Would appreciate your suggestions/recommendations! So far, I've checked out the M-Audio Fast Track II but from what I've heard it's built-in headphone amp doesn't go loud enough for good mixing levels with the K 240's. Also have checked out the Tascam US100, but not sure if it fits my criteria. My 240's have an impedance of 55 ohms. Would really appreciate your help guys! Also, I only use soft synths so don't need any MIDI inputs, just a headphone out to plug in my headphones!
My criteria are:
1.) To have a built-in headphone amp, that can adequately drive the AKG K 240's specifically.
2.) To have a bypass button/function/option to disable any sound enhancements to get a flat frequency response.
3.) Has its own sound driver, as I am looking to use it for online desktop streaming while I produce (my onboard sound card's driver can't take the load of my projects, since I usually use the asio driver but unfortunately asio isn't supported in the streaming software.
4.) USB connectivity.
