Do you just want a DAC by itself? A DAC and A separate Amp? or a DAC / Amp combo unit?

I would point you to threads covering both products on this forum first, before giving any advice.

If your only headphones don't have a balanced connector, then the DX7s isn't going to get you anything that the DX3 pro doesn't do. (and it has ~10 Ohm output impedance and your headphones are only 40 Ohm) Also, the DX7s is more expensive and both are > than the $200 you specify.

I know about the output impedance in DX7s + I know the price of DX7s, is there any thing else justify pay +400$ for it ... if I get it will I notice any difference from DX3 PRO?
