I recently got an Android cell phone and since I haven't used my iPod Touch very much since I got it (16GB 2G model) I decided to sell it off. I figure I can use my phone and my phone does FLAC so I don't have to deal with ALAC conversion anymore.
I bought new headphones even (although still kinda low end ... Altec Lansing MuzX Classic).
Problem is the sound output on my Android is kinda low (I've heard others complain of my particular model as having "low headphone output" on another forum). Even with the volume turned up "all the way" it often (with most songs) is not loud enough.
So I just want a "simple" portable headphone amp so as to increase the volume.
I'm thinking the FiiO E5 may be 'good enough' but I don't know. The NuForce Icon Mobile is another device I've considered.
Suggestions and recommendations please.
Please note my Android has a 2.5mm headphone output but I have a working 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter (since my headphones are 3.5mm size). I don't think there is a way to get a "line out" from my Android (it's a cheap low budget model).
