The Integra DTR-7.8 or most receivers in general are like a first car, a good starting point but down the road you will want to get something better when you can afford it. I have a pair of K-702 headphones they have a rateher low impedance and don't need much oomph to be driven loud. I can easily run them off my laptop at moderate volume levels. For better audio quality, separate headphone dac and amp will be a requirement but not necessary for usable operation like higher impedance headphones like Sennheisers HD-650, HD-600, HD800, or Beyerdyamic DT880, DT-990, and T1. Those headphones will never run directly off an iPOD like the K-701/702s can.

My personal opinion is skip the 701, go for the K-702 or Q-701 for its removable-replaceable-upgradeable headphone cable. Other that that and aesthetics, the three models are identical.
