post #76 of 81

Between the E11,A10,ZO2 and JDS cmoyBB, how would you differentiate all of them? I'm currently using an iPhone 4s or iPod 2nd Gen with the Fiio e6, and mainly with my GR07. I might get the rock-it R50 soon or the M100. And I'm looking for more of a fun and engaging sound. Which would suit me the most? Or should I just get the Fiio X3?

But the real question is, do you really need extra amping?

I mainly get amps due to the improve in SQ... But I'm not really sure is it worth it?  Or would i be better of getting a better DAP.

That's depends on two things: how well you source is driving your headphone and how demanding your headphone are. I don't really see a demanding headphone there and therefore I don't think there will be a big improvement. Personally, I think SQ improvement vs. money spent usually go like these: headphones > source > amp.

 

I think you should ask yourself these question in order:

(1) are you happy with your current headphone?

(2) are you happy with your source?

 

If (1) is no, spend money on headphone first. If (1) is yes, move on to (2).

If (2) is yes, then decide whether you want to improve it or not. If yes, get an amp. If no, be happy.

If (2) is no, get a new source.

My A10 just died after about a year and a half :(

When I plug in the headphones it turns on for a split second and then turns off. It's fully charged so that's not the issue.

Must be something with the on/off switch.
