Hello everyone. Sorry for my English. I have a panasonic oled hz1000 and a sony ubp x800m2 4k player. I would like to pair it with headphones for use exclusively for listening and watching movies. I was thinking of the Sennheiser HD 660S2 or Audio Technica PRO ATH-R70X or Beyerdynamic DT 990. Question: to make the most of one of these headphones, do I need to combine it with a DAC? The only way I have to connect headphones is via the 3.5mm jack to the Panasonic TV. The 4k player does not have 3.5mm Jack outputs... it only has HDMI and coaxial. I have many blu ray and 4k with DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Digital Plus tracks and I would like to make the most of them. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you

You can get a nice cheap DAC+Headphone amp (such as Topping brand) and connect via COAX.. that's the quickest and cheapest option. It will also sound MUCH better than the output on the Panasonic TV.
