best headphones amp for $50 or less
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Honestly I wouldn't bother. You're probably better off using phones/IEMs of sufficient sensitivity that you don't need an amp.
I've run my TF10's as well as my Grado SR60s right from my tiny little Shuffle and it sounded great with plenty of volume without sounding strained/thin.
With careful opamp selection a Cmoy can be pretty respectable. I used one as my primary amp for quite awhile before I fell headlong into this addiction. Worked will with HD650, k701s and Sony MDR somethings.
I think I used a OPA2134, then later an AD8620. You may find a used Cmoy with a dip socket for rolling opamps on the 'bay for pretty cheap.
