Are you plugging the headphones into an iPod, iPhone, mp3 player, computer, A/V receivers, TV, etc.

The Xonar DX is a good sound, just not that great for driving headphones, guess that's why you want a headphone amplifier.

The JVC HA-S500 does not need much in the way of amping, but works better with an amplifier with a low impedance (Ohm) output

Impedance is resistance, measured in Ohms.

(The output line-out/headphone jack on the Xonar DX is very high Ohm).

The Fiio E11 portable headphone amplifier comes with a very low impedance, like .5-Ohms (NICE).

Get the Fiio E11 with an extra battery and a simple AC powered battery recharger.

You can be recharging the spare battery while the Fiio E11 uses the other battery.

The Fiio E11 can drive Beyerdynamic 250-Ohm headphones.

yes it is. 95% of the Fiio E11, but a nice warm DAC included (can replace any sound-card)..

this small gem which get its power via USB (and never leaves my computer!) ..
