I came across this website looking for bass headphones. I read a couple of threads and feel like the Sony MDR-XB1000 & FiiO E11 would be a good combo. Just wanted a opinion or two before I buy. Also I can spend a little more money on the amp is there a better one (E07K or e17?).
What is it that you like or think you will like about XB1000? What type of music?
Regarding the amp, did you need a desktop DAC, portable amp, or both? If you just need a portable, the E11 is a great choice. If you need both, the E17 is also a solid choice.
