Beat $10 amp for IPOD????

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
............... Not. $200 (see below).


Rather, what headphone does not need an amp with a 5th generation IPOD and has reasonable sound/aesthetics. ????

Are you asking what headphone would be good without an amp?

i dont have a white slab of trouble, but i do have a similar player.

i have found the following amps nice:

govibe.
cmoy, with nice opamps.
porta-corda mk2.
mk-1 portaphile (maxed)
aph-47
balanced buffered class-a cmoy, uses chips to split signal.
the grado ra-1 (clone)
my "elcheapo" 1W amp. the basic parts kit (no case, battery trays, 2 spare resistors to adjust gain, and 2 more to replace input caps or jacks) is even in YOUR budget.

i really like the following A LOT.
milelt hybrid, with a mix of black gate, elna and nichon caps, and stacked buffers.
my elcheapo (8/2)*2ch watt tube amp.
my aos flute dac/amp.

just a few amps i have enjoyed quite thourouly from my non eye-pawd.

Get a match book... paint it silver or black. Puncha few holes in, run the cable through.... bam an amp.

wait, so some guy's offering you an ipod if you destroy a ten dollar amp? I'd go for it.

Unamped? I'd go with a KSC-35/75, Grado SR-60, Alessandro MS-1, Beyerdynamic DT-231, Sennheiser PX100, HD-497, etc.
