fiio e5 amp for sennheiser hd598

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got my sennheiser 598 today and i plugged it in to my htc hd7 and there kinda too quiet. Will an e5 amp make them louder. Im a noob at this high end audiophile stuff but i want to enjoy my music to the fullest. These are my first expensive pair of headphones. I usually dont spend more than 30 bucks. But ive had headphones louder than these. I really dont want to be dissapointed. How much of a difference would this amp make. I cant afford the e7 right now either.

Well, I guess you know your choice is limited with your budget. But instead of E5, you should get the newer E6 instead. E6 is only a few bucks more expensive.

I had both E5 and E6; I'm not sure how these both sound (i believe E5 was more balanced and E6 was little bass punchy) but yes, E6 is newer model with more features (bass EQ and mixed mode). however E5 is made out of metal while E6 is made of plastic, which E6 really disappointed me in terms of build quality.
