Alternatively do you think it's better to spend that money on a new player instead? Basically I'd either invest £100 on a portable amp or £200 on a new player (no amp) or a combination of the two as long as I don't exceed £200 (it's a new hobby so taking baby steps
Thanks in advance!
Hi mate. Depends what you want to get out of the cans. Are you looking for a particular signature? Not enough bass? Treble need a bump? Or just simply volume?
Personally I feel the momentum's and amperiors sound great and were designed for portable use. the low impedance means they are not hard to drive.
I think you should just enjoy your headphones for a while so you are settled with the sound and then make an informed decision on whether you really need an amp.
As GSA mentioned the e17 is a lovely versatile amp but unlike my head-fi friend GSA I don't use the amperiors with an amp.
I listen at moderate volumes, bass and treble are perfectly balanced for my ears. So The amperiors for me are grab and go...Amazing as is! It's down to personal preference really.Edited by jayp266 - 3/7/13 at 11:14pm
