Hi guys

 

i was wondering if cmoy really make a difference on my ipod because i don't know the output on my ipod is, and i was hoping that cmoy or some other portable amps would boost the sound/loudness/quality, on my sennheiser hd 380 pro. also please tell me your experience with portable amps.

 

please and thank you for your feed back.

Definitely. I am listening now to iPod Classic -> PURE Dock -> cMoy -> Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. The cMoy adds a bit more clarity and punch to the sound since the amp can push a bit more than say the iPod. You can also get a bit more favourable result adding an 12V/18V DC power source adapter to the amp for more power.

 

The form factor is ok, and takes up little space which is nice although having the line-in input on the front isn't as nice as if it was on the back. But not a big deal.

 

You can get a variety on eBay (or build your own). The ones on eBay can be as cheap as $35 but you will find you lose the power jack and the smart headphone jack ( on JDS Labs if you unplug the headphone it powers off).
