I use my in-ear monitors to listen to my iphon as well as when playing the drums. I listen to Gospel, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Rock, R&B, & Funk. What would give me the best biggest neutral sound for these gendre of music. An option for whatever price and another for $100 and under.

What is the best portable amp for UE 11 Pro!!!
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I'm about to write a full review of Todd the Vinyl Junky's Portable (slim). I use it with UE 11Pros and the pair is amazing!!!!!!
It tames the UEs so that the sound is full but neutral, not boomy. Mids are delicious and there is serious thump as well.
I can't imagine a better pairing.
If you want to go cheaper, you can try the Total Bithead or Airhead. Boomier for sure, needs to be run louder, harsh midtones (especially voices) but you can get some serious slam out of it. Be careful with the volume control or you'll blow your head off with this pair -- the volume knob is easy to turn accidentally and there is very little precision with it. It's a starter amp, no doubt about it.
