Affordable amps (possibly portable) for Sennheiser HD 205.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello guys,

I am currently looking for [portable] headphone amps for the Sennheiser HD 205 (200 mW, 32 ohms). 
My budget would probably be $100 or below. 
And, if possible, would they also run 100 mW IEMs with 32 ohms impedance?

The 205's are not hard to drive. Even a Fiio E5 is capable of driving them. You can check the portable amps section.

The Sennheiser HD205 won't improve by amping them. It doesn't make sense to use a $100 amplifier to amp that cheap can and you'll get a lot more improvement from using that $100 to buy different headphones. By the way, the HD205 sounded worse than the cheaper HD202 to me.

Can you give me ideas of good and easy-to-drive headphones I can buy for $100? 
I mainly listen to music in the likes of Blue, Backstreet Boys, James Blunt and Scorpions. I'd like headphones with balanced sound.
