need a portable amp to drive the FA-011's

Headroom's Total Airhead for $99 is very nice.  If you want the amp plus DAC all in one go for the Total Bithead fo $150.  That is what I use and really like it.

 

They are both portable, both have High and Low gain settings for different headphones.  The DAC will make your PC audio much cleaner.

I recommend iBasso's D-Zero for $109. It has a rechargeable battery that lasts 25+ hours in my testing, a rather powerful amp for the price, and can be used as a USB soundcard for your desktop or laptop. In comparison to the Total Bithead and the FiiO E7, I preferred it easily. You can read my review in my signature.

Has anyone tried a C421 with them?

 

I'm looking to buy a portable amp and right now I'm going back and forth between the C421 and the D-Zero.

 

Thanks!
