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?

Yes and it is inferior to even the on board solution on my laptop. It sounds alright for what it is but not good.

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?!?

The tricked out amp/dac is worth USD 1000. The MMX 300s are the same.

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.
