Would like a recommended amp for a pair of beats by dre tour and akg k550
Gear mentioned in this thread:
What source(s) are you plugging the headphones into?
Portable wise, a Fiio E11 should work for both.
The Fiio E10 can not use it's DAC with the iPhone anyway.
and the E11 amp. is a little better then the E10s
For around $13, you can get two spare batteries(BL-5B) and a battery charger for the E11, on eBay.
The Made in China batteries may not hold a charge (mA) as well as they are listed for, but for the low price you pay, it does not matter.
He can't use the Fiio E17 ($140) DAC with the iPhone, just the amp. part.

thats true but if he ever uses it with a comp... then he would have a dac
