Recommendations for a interface that works well with PT
 
I'm looking for a Interface that has a good quality Headphone Amp and works well with PT. My price range is around 300$.

I tried using a Fiio E10K since i only use my PC for editing and mixing, however there is a lot of lag (play/pause/switching solo)
probably because of the Fiio (cpu/ram never above 60%).

Is the DAC/Headphone Amp in a Scarlett 2i2 / Presonus 26c comparable to the Fiio? (Headphones: 990/770pro 250 ohm)

Appreciate your input :)

Focusrite interfaces have good drivers and generally sound good.
If you can go a little higher, I would go for their Clarett series of interfaces, which sound very good. Something like the Clarett 2Pre would work well and you can sometimes find demo units right around $300. If you go that way, just make sure you get the USB version as they make Thunderbolt versions too.

With 250 ohm headphones, you may find many interfaces yield low volume:o

used Focusrite Scarlett (or b-stock) with as much IO as you need. I have the 3rd Gen 18i20 I bought as B-stock from Focusrite. Headphone outputs happily drive a pair of AKG K702's, so you should be fine.
