I told you that K550 doesn't need amplification. Then I told you that ipod touch 4g is supposed to have pretty good built in DAC.

 

You know that Fiio E17 is portable Amp/DAC?

I recently tested specifically jpop and the like with a bunch of headphones and came to the conclusion that the AudioTechnica A900X was pretty much the winner for me in that arena.

Very best,


Just to confirm Malveaux, when you say you tested them with J-pop did you mean that other thread where the OP had 3 embedded youtube videos? Problems with those video's were a) they were terrible quality as you pointed out, but more importantly b) they weren't Japanese, they were Korean, which generally is very different for j-pop.

I listen to a lot of jrock too.

From my experience with the K550 through a PA2v2 for portable use and a Schiit Asgard at home, amplification is not necessary. I'd have to say it results in slightly more bass, though. Very slight.
