Ok. That makes much more sense than using a pico power.

Pico power's weren't designed for iems. They were designed for power. They will be 1. too loud and 2. hiss

You are incorrect on both statements.

 

The Pico Power actually has the ability to be quieter than the Pico at the balanced portion of the Pot... Also, it is dead silent at any realistic listening level on the correct gain.

Totally wrong. Where did you get your info? The Pico Power has no hiss at all on low, med, or high gain (at moderate levels). I use it with all the IEMs I've owned, none have had hiss issue or "too loud" issues (not sure what that means...).

Better try PP first and foremost.

Alright. I assumed that it was too powerful for iems because they were designed for hard to drive hps. Sorry.

No worries.
Sometimes the word "power" can be misleading for not suitable for IEMs.
It happens :-)

Besides, I thought it would be a waste to buy a pico power for iems.

You thought wrong…again.

Let's not derail the thread with an opinionated argument.
