Looking for a portable amp for my Sennheiser HD 25 ii's. I've heard these won't benefit much from an amp but I still would like one for volume boosting capabilities and I was hoping to hear at least some sort of difference in sound quality / clarity.
My price range is no more than 200$, and portability wise it can be pretty chunky since I will probably be using a backpack while using it.
I'm completely new to headphone amps so I'm not sure if some brands cater more towards different types of music or what, so if any more information would be helpful to you, please don't hesitate to ask. The bulk of my music is electronic but I listen to all genres.
I'm also wondering, does the source the amp is plugged into make a difference in sound quality or is it just the music file. If it does I use a ipod video 5th gen.
Thanks in advance for any help :)
Edit: I am using all stock parts for the hd 25, would upgrading the cable be the most cost effective way to get better sound, if so can anyone recommend one.
