Can the E7 power the HD 600 at all better than just listening straight through my iPhone? - Page 2

The E7 (or most portable amps for that matter) will definitely improve the sound from your 600s driven from your iPod. I own the E7 and HD580s and the Fiio gives more volume from my DAP (Sansa View) and an improved SQ, particularly bass.

The 580 is easier to power.  I have the e7 and the 600 and it doesn't do anything for me.  Great with other phones though

That surprises me as the 580 and the 600 are very similar HPs, so similar that many are pushed to hear a difference between them. The 600s came into being as an extended version of the 580s and both are rated at 300 ohms.

 

That said, a more powerful amp would certainly help and the iBasso D6 comes to mind in this regard.
