i know you said that these phones don't require a lot of power but did you happen to test the sound with its own amp?

There is a version Headzone Game at USD 1290 and it mentions the headset is MMX300, so is that the exactly same headphone as this USD 299 one? the amp/decoder alone cost USD 1000?!?

omg, in your opinion how much MMX 300 can benefit from that $1000 amp compared to usb soundcard? $1000 is crazy, already can buy a lower mid range A/V Receiver.

I think the DAC/amp beyer are using has some kind of virtual surround processing capability but I have not looked that much into it.
