Hello, I just got some ATH-M50's for my first pair of nice headphones and they sound pretty darn good. I could go for a tad more bass though so I was wondering what amp would be the best for about $50.

I have been looking into the fiio E6 and E11.

Since I have never seen them in person I am not sure of the size exactly but I would like to just strap it to the back of my older 80 gig ipod classic and pretend to myself that is just one unit since I dont really pocket it ever but carry it in a backpack.

Thanks for your input in trying to help me get the best sound possible out of the headphones.

I'm a Fiio E11 fan, but the E6 should easily be able to drive the ATH-M50.

E11 is the better amp for your application. it will strap beneath your ipod easily having a smaller foot print. Considering you toss it in your backpack I would go for E11. The only problem I can see is the volume dial getting bumped in your bag though it's stiff enough to stay where you put it.

Don't forget to purchase an LOD!
