What source(s) are you plugging the headphones into?
Portable wise, a Fiio E11 should work for both.post #3 of 86/17/12 at 11:31pmThread Starterpost #4 of 86/17/12 at 11:40pmQuote:
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.

He can't use the Fiio E17 ($140) DAC with the iPhone, just the amp. part.
And the Fiio E11 is only $65.post #7 of 86/18/12 at 12:14amQuote:
thats true but if he ever uses it with a comp... then he would have a dac
