So I'm about to purchase my first mid-tier portable headphone amp, and I was looking at the Ibasso T3 and Z02, since they are right in my budget and needs in terms of size. So my question here is, what are the attributes of each in terms of sounds. I do want a black background (which I hear the Z02 will give) with good bass power (not necessarily quantity) and a good enveloping sound stage. For example, for the bass whenever I listen through my Yamaha receiver, even on neutral the bass gives you more of a kick purely from power, so I was hoping for something like that. I do like multiple presets for the eq, but I don't need too much. I don't like sibilance, no matter what the reason.
I was looking for something to clean up the bass, give it some power, make the mids more clear, and bring out some non sibilant sparkle to those trebles.
I will be using this with my M50, Shure SE215, HD25 Originals, and possibly the Pro700. I also plan on buying some nice Iems in the near future, and I was looking at the RE-262, which I hear needs some amping if that makes a difference...
