I prefer to warn you, i'm probably going to sound like a big neophyte fool, but I need "experts" advices.
In exactly a month are Christmas Holidays, the perfect time for self-indulgence. For this occasion, I intend to buy a portable amp/heaphones combination for a nomad utilisation on my iPod classic 160. The issue is, I don't know anything about portable amps.
I heard that it'd be a complete shame to get great headphones (such as the Sennheiser HD650, that I'm actually going to get if I find an amp solution) to use them through the classic and shitty iPod plug (bad quality "amp"). So now, I consider buying a portable amp to get the best of it.
1. What do you think about getting a portable amp with the HD650? Is it a waste of money?
2. Otherwise, which portable amp should I get in combination with those headphones? I'd like something not too cumbersome, I don't want to carry around ten pounds of hardware ;).
3. Any other good combination regarding my use (that is to say nomad) is welcome! For information, I want my headphones to be over-hear, to have nice bass and trebles, and lower, deaden mid-frequencies (the best EQ according to me).
Thanks a lot!
