Thank you, Gabe
return the amp if possible, then use the money to buy like 30 tacos... man im hungry .
whoops didnt know that amp is only $8. I guess you can try it out for awhile to see if you can tell the difference but I really doubt you will
You might get some interference(dont know if I should call it that) if you dont use a LOD like this one http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-L3-Line-Cable-iPhone/dp/B003UCESP8/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1337983662&sr=1-7
What that does is bypass the ipads internal amp and uses the one in whatever amp you want to use. But I dont think I would even buy one if I was you since I think the ipads amp will outperform that Fiio anyway.
It won't have a major impact on quality, but it will help you drive the ATH's louder with less distortion, thats about the only noticeable effect you'll see.
Your a smart kid getting the ATH-M50's at your age, at 16 by biggest buy was a half decent gaming headset, Now at 21 I can afford the good stuff, Hifiman HE-400's paired with an E17 , woot :)
But for a while I used the Fiio E1 with my iTouch and Sennheiser HD595's, and tbh I enjoyed the sound more than from the iPod jack. The E3 is a better amp than the E1 by a fair margin too, but noticing a difference will come down to music selection and a bit of testing, going back and forth on the same track etc.
On another note though, using an E3 with an iPad is gonna be annoying, a whopper dangly device hanging off a cable from your line out.
Keep on reading, and save up for more expensive shhtuff, or Alternatively ban this website from your browsers and delete your account, because if you wanna have any money at all try get rid of the upgrade itch before its too late :) :) :)
