Looking for a USB Headphone amplifier

I am currently using a Music Fidelity OBH21 amp with a V-DAC to drive AKG 701 headphones. Though this system provides detail, I would like to improve on the ’soundstage’ and add a little more bass.

To this end, I am looking for USB headphone amplifier and also may upgrade from the 701s. Would like to purchase the amp 1st, one that would support a headphone upgrade.

Any recommendations?

Have you looked at the PS Audio Sprout? It was just reduced to $500, which is within your posted price-point. It's an "all in one" that has both a headphone-out as well as speaker posts. I haven't tested one myself, but it has been receiving good reviews.

Hope that helps.
