Depends on what lacks most in Your setup.
If headphones sound too quiet or tiny, You should start with AMP.
If You miss detail You should look for a DAC.
HD600 has some kind of "hard to drive" badge but once You have any dedicated equipment it will be just fine. Even Fiio E10K or ASUS Xonar DX. On AMP side You can get SMSL sApII which is both powerful and cheap option.
And most important: You don't have to gamble, it's not like they're going to be unoperational without bying some companion device.
Thanks for the feedback. I just heard that they sound better with an amplifier. I'll see how it works with my setup once they come in.
