First of all, I gave these a 3 star mostly for their price. At about 9 bucks they are about the cheapest headphones around. I mean, who is going to pass up a deal like that. They are dirt cheap and...

DAC/AMP to pair with ES5.
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
was considering Pico, ODAC, ibasso D7. any comments?
Well, the ODAC is the cheapest, but its only a DAC, and will start selling after May.
The rest are DAC/AMP Combos.
Personally I like standalone DAC because I can connect any amp I want. Maybe the other two also have line out options.
I'm also interested in pairing an AMP/DAC with my ES5's both for Laptop use and portable.
Looking at Ibasso D4, i Basso T3. Wondering what would be a good pairing, ES5's are 20 ohms, would need impedance matching under 2 ohms.
I've heard good things about the HRT too, but it doesn't have volume control on the go right?
I have a pair of Westone ES5's paired with a Pico DAC/Amp combo. I'm a discerning listener—not an audiophile blackbelt by any means—but for me the hassle of carrying around the amplifier when I'm doing anything besides sitting at my desk isn't worth it, so I typically have them plugged in straight to the iPhone (at the gym, cleaning the house, taking a walk, etc). Doesn't sound as good, but it's better than having to wear a fanny pack.
