The last rig of this type I used was an AK100 and Pico Power, and again just recently the FiiO X5 and Pico Power, though I haven't yet tested how much the latter improves the sound, if at all.

I just heard of the Fiio X5, do you like it? 

 

So far, I do. It's a bit on the warm and forgiving side, but I like that, especially in combination with the nothing-but-the-facts Pico Power.

I feel like the answer to this question is Yes. and for the price, that really shows something. Most TOTL headphones are at least 600-700, if not a ton more.

In general, headphones are massively overpriced. My favorite gear lately seems to be all vintage TOTL. It's always the best performance to price ratio I can find :)
