Best Portable Amp For Beyer DT880's (250 Omh) Under $60

post #1 of 13

Title says it all, what is the best Amp (preferably portable) for the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro's 250 ohm for around $60.

 

So far the Fiio E11 is on the top of the list, but I barely know anything about Amps.

 

Cheers

Another +1 for the E11. BUT if you'd like a DAC/AMP combo, you could also look at the Fiio E7 also a portable. I've heard it's pretty good too. Use it as a DAC and AMP with your computer, and then take with you for use as just an AMP on the go. It's stratching your budget a tiny bit though, $70 brand new, though Amazon's Warehouse Deals has it for 60 Like New condition.

For $60, you can consider the already recommended FiiO E11, or the JDS Labs cMoyBB (with 2x9V batteries if you prefer some extra power). The E7 has a worse amplifier than the E11 (it is similar to the $30 E6, but slightly improved, and includes a DAC), although it might be enough nevertheless if you do not listen to very dynamic music and/or at high volume.

The E11 is a good choice overall, its main disadvantage is that it does not work while the battery is being recharged, and it cannot be used with an external power supply either.
