 As howdy mentions, definitely. I use this on my Triple-fi, and UE6000 without issue. Even my AKG Q701 sounds pretty darn good from it. 
 I read similar sentiments when I was deciding on which DAP to get. Thanks for typing all that information out!  When I owned the older IRiver H120/H320, there were similar issues with firmware. Sad to see they still haven't got their act together. Also, I had one of my worst experiences with customer support dealing with Iriver. Swore I'd never give them any more money.
 They bear a striking resemblance to the Rokits. Glad to hear they're comfy!   Whew! Glad to hear it's just the cable! I bought one from this guy:  He's also a member here on head-fi. The cable is really well built. Lots of details in the cable to ensure it doesn't fall apart later. The kind of details you won't find from most cable manufacturer's...
 For some reason they look extra comfy. Wonder if they're better than my Denon d7000 pads for HE-500!?!?! Also, are those Rokits?
 Hi Boogirl!  Welcome to head-fi!   I actually own both of these amplifiers sitting side by side, and my Q701 are on my head right now! Based on your post, looks like you've done a lot of reading about these amplifiers. Here's how I would compare them. Schiit Vali: Better sounding tonality, far better texture (if that makes sense), and a more "natural" sound. It's truly a stellar amplifier, and I was shocked when I first had it warmed up. The Schiit Vali's bass is also a...
   I've never purchased that cable, but definitely S SandDigital makes a really good point. It's easy for new people involved in audio to get caught up in cables and things like that. Don't end up spending the same amount of money on a cable that you did on a headphone.  Also, if you open up the AKG K501, K601, K612, K701, K702, Q701, or K712 you would understand how silly it is to buy an "upgraded" cable. 
 Either will be great! Until then, don't get caught up in amplifiers and all that other jazz. Just plug them into what you've got and enjoy the music! 
 I'd say Schiit Vali or Matrix M-stage will fit the bill.
 Honestly, at a budget of under $100, it's hard to suggest any amplifier. The difference between using your ipod's headphone jack and many of the "budget" amplifiers is pretty small IMO. Do you have the Q701 on hand yet? I would plug it in and listen first. Sure, it'll get better with better amplifiers feeding it, but they still sound great out of just about anything.   IMO, there aren't a lot of good "portable" amplifiers. That is, ones that run solely on a battery. In my...
  Ooops! Thanks for correcting me! When converted to PCM, is often found in the 24/88 or 24/176 format.
