I'm sitting here listening to some classical music (a Noctune album) on my J3 ripped from CD in WMA 320mb format. I'm using an E11 with their included LOD into Grado RS1 headphones.

 

The E11 definatetly adds something worthwile. Sound is a little bigger even though it's currently running at a low volume level.

 

I don't bother with E11 outdoors as I find it too inconvenient. Just use iphone 4 with Ety ER4-p

 

Indoors I like the mobility of a portable headphone amp. I use it much more than my Graham Slee Novo and Lexicon RT20 (SACD mainly) although they're situated near my TV so can only make use of them when I want to totally "kick back" and relax.

Portable rig is good as long as it's not ridiculously big or expensive. Some people may take portable players too seriously like I used to back then but that could also be one of lesson for life.

Of course one should take portable players and rigs seriously, life is a most valuable and serious phenomenon and enjoying fine things in life is most serious too. Life is so short, why should one waste a minute of it by listening to a substandard audio ? Is there anyone who will have this inscription put on his or her gravestone - 'I wish I had listened to a cheap and bad portable' ?

Yes, I say it often. Life's too short for bad hi-fi...

 

Portable? Right now I have a Ibasso DX-50 and AKG 3003 playing hi-rez files (one 64Gb Micro SD card and two 128Gb flash drives, fits in a jeans pocket). It sounds pretty darn good, it's cool to walk the city and enjoy this set up.
