 I did read a review that said these totally benefit from it :)  http://www.headfonia.com/bo-beoplay-h6/2/Check it out :)  That;s not to say they absolutely NEED it. :) They do sound perfectly good on their own.
You guys might laugh at me for this.. but I got the JDS Labs C5D.. and decided to amp these just to see what would happen. The upper range clarity really opens up a bit. :D Don't worry, though, I bought the amp for my B&O H6. Not exclusively for these :) I just had to satisfy my curiosity. Also, when amping these, DO NOT click the volume buttons on the headphone inline mic. :P You will probably damage them if you do.
 I'll quote this from a trusted expert who elucidated where/why an Amp is used.So, in short, it's not required, but the benefits can be huge, and it only partially has to do with how easy something is to drive. :) Sensitive headphones, such as these, *can* benefit hugely from amplification. Does that mean you need it? no. But it does mean that it will improve their sound greatly. :)
 Hey John! I got my Red/Silver C5D that you sent me! :D Thank you so much! It sounds amazing. And great explanation! It cleared a lot of misconceptions I had about amps and when/why to use one :)
From what I've read on here, few IEMs will benefit very much from amping, since they are designed to be easy to drive. With headphones, most headphones, even the easy to drive ones, benefit from amping.
Can you use your C5D from a desktop/laptop without wearing out the battery (i.e., will usb power constantly charge the battery, or is there a bypass circuit built in so that the battery stops charging at 100%) and then having it ready to go when you unplug for travel?
Mother of God! that price tag on the hugo made me piss myself :o  Hmm, okay the Meridian Explorer seems pretty nice. Still a bit out of my price range. I'm wondering about the JDS Lab C5 or C5D. If I go the C5 Route, how good should my internal DAC be? I have an iPhone and a Macbook Pro. I've heard the iPhone is actually a really nice source. No idea about the Macbook Pro.
It's designed so that either side can face your mouth.  Advantage: works with headphones regardless of whether they have a port on the right  or left.    Disadvantage: it will pick up some ambient noise.

So, if the M100 cable works, do you think I could get this: and use it for gaming? http://v-moda.com/boompro-microphone/ And then get a "no controls" M100 cable for amping? :)Also, those of you interested in a 3.5mm to ¼" adapter might want to check this out: http://v-moda.com/coilpro-cable/ Also, does anyone have a a portable DAC/Amp to recommend for these?
