I would think generally yes.  I've never heard the m50's but I understand they tend to the dry or analytical side, with a slightly sloppy (relatively speaking) bass presentation.  I believe a decent amp would help tighten up the bass, and maybe lend a bit of warmth to make the presentation a bit more fun.  It all depends on the amp you pick, of course.  Hopefully someone can suggest one that pairs nicely with the m50's, or try searching as I bet it's been asked a lot here.

I'm always thinking if it's a good idea got get a portable amp/dac to make my rig less portable. iPod nano is pretty small, but a "portable" amp is bigger than your source. 

 

Just throwing some thoughts. no offence. :-|

ATH-M50s are fairly easy to drive and apple portable products are fairly decent at driving headphones.

I all ways say to get the Fiio E11 with a Fiio L cable.

But maybe the Fiio E6 might help a little?
