hey guy and gals

 

does anyone have a suggestion for an amp that will make my ipod sound less crappy than it already is?

i don't know whats my price range right now but if at all possible please tell me from cheap, average,to high-end.

i have been looking around like filo E5,cmoy, just audio uHA-120, and others. but i am a novice at this so i am looking forward to your feed back. also for details i have a ipod nano 5th gen and my head phones are the sennheiser HD 380 PRO

 

thanks.

 

P.S.

 

also if you guys or gals know the output of my ipod that wold be very helpful and a great fun fact.

my ipod classic sounds great with a fiio e5 and my shure srh840. i think they make a good sub $20 option.

I think you need an equaliser, not an amplifier. Cheaper to just buy a decent source, IMO.

Make of it what you will - over and out.

define crappy? weak anemic? bloated? etc...?

if you just need volume any of the fiios would do well

hmm i would say weak bass, its like missing a little kick on the bass but its ok, the highs are good. its just feels too flat. hmm hard to explain. because i have my own preference. and yes i want a hear volume.

 

also quick question if anyone can answer but if  you have an input/source of an ipod and the frequency response is 20Hz-20Khz and it goes to the amp, does the amp push out 10Hz-27Hz? ( if the amp could push out that) or does it have no effect?

what kind of ipod?

 

edit:nano eh.

 

my E5 made a difference for sure with my old nano.

 

Try ibasso T3, fiio E7 or the new E11(i havent tried e11 myself, reviews are good).

cheapest solution would be almost any of the fiio amps. most of them have bass boost. the hippo box+ is also good if you can find a place that sells them online.

or, have you tried the equalizer settings on the nano? I read somewhere also that if you set an equalizer setting on itunes before transfering the song, it will retain those settings when you leave the equalizer on " flat" in the ipod.

A Fiio isnt always the best bang-for-bang. This has been around for a long time, but gets bulldozed by the rush to newer amps:

'perhaps the best PRaT I've heard out of a portable amp' - ok, Mike lays it on pretty thick. but I wanted to see this included on your shortlist.
