  I think the error is yours my friend.  The thread you are posting in is:REVIEW : Jaben's GoVibe Porta Tube Amp - Review Thread (ex demo)It has nothing to do with $60 headphones 
 I have two good pairs.  Both of mine are going strong - the 2nd pair (which I purchased) I only used for 10 minutes to check that the bass and everything else was OK. If you want a pair that is good - drop me a PM and we can talk about a sale.  I was going to keep both, but got introduced to a much more expensive hybrid recently (Fidue A83), and after listening to it, promptly purchased it (when will I learn ...).  It's a very neutral signature - but ticks all of my...
 Not sure who you're asking - but simple answer is that you won't get it for $60.  Cheapest I've seen it is 2nd hand (used) at around USD300.00 (and I'm still kicking myself for not buying at that level when I saw it!).  New it retails for USD 600-700.
DT880 and HD600 don't sound remotely similar IMO. Up until very recently I owned both and had both for an extended period of time (several years). The main reason I kept both was because of the contrasting sound.
 Thanks - appreciate it.  I haven't heard the the RBH EP2.  Funnily enough, you get not many hits on this site either - this is closest I got:http://www.head-fi.org/t/686725/rbh-ep2-are-these-really-the-best-200-earphones/15 Joker reviewed the RBH EP1 (with reference to the EP2) and found it to be OK for price (8/10).  Joker's score on the DN-1000 was 9/10. He really is the expert - but from what I've heard (and in your price range), I'd be considering the DN-1000 and/or...
 As I suggested above - if the changes adjust the frequency response (eg hardware eq, or impedance change) then the output will sound different.  If your aim is to do that - then by all means use an amp. Personally - if I need to change the freq I'll use the equaliser rather than carry the bulk on an amp around with me.  And as stated before, the X1 is under 1 ohm, so the need for correcting impedance is unlikely - so really speaking needing an amp depends on whether the...
 I was just going to let this go - but it's sending the wrong message.  An amp (in reality) is changing one (or more) of five things: - current - voltage - frequency change either via hardware EQ controls (like bass boost, or tone controls), or adding it's own signature (eg if the amp has a warm signature by design) - impedance (which in turn can affect frequency) - avoiding the DAP's amp stage if the DAP has a line-out feature which allows it An amp doesn't necessarily...
.
Actually I'd suggest the K612 Pro (I've owned the K701, K702 and Q701 also). Comparison between the K702 and K612 Pro (http://www.head-fi.org/t/685483/akg-k702-the-classic-vs-k612-pro-the-upstart-review-and-comparison) Will give the neutrality you're after without skimping on the bass.  It's also more comfortable than the Q701 (no bumps!), and cheaper.
I fixed it with the factory default reset.  Everything back to normal - running 2.2 modified.
