I had an interesting chat during the week with a nice chap from Sennheiser who felt the reason they haven't made a portable amp / dac is because they didn't think there was much demand.

So head-fi gurus, would you or would you not be interested in a good quality portable amp/dac from Sennheiser...vote on the poll please...

I wouldn't, but then I stopped using a portable amp since I got decent portable headphones...

It's not like you'll hear the difference in your average commute anyway so I think the money is better spent towards a better headphone.

I'm currently using a Fiio E17 with my IE80's and sound is excellent, just sounds flat without the E17 now, so I'd love to see a small compact unit from Sennheiser or another high end manf.

I have use a RSA Hornet before, but don't think the hassle of charging and stuffing it somewhere adds up to added sound quality. Some headphones will appreciate it, I know my K271S and to some extent SR125's did, but many meant for portable use won't. 

IEM's may be different, no experience there. 

 

Transportable or small desktop designs may be interesting for me though. Think O2 dec/amp with better input/output design.

I like the idea of that too, allowing me to take it to the office, etc.

Sennheiser have an event this evening at the Regent Street Apple Store this evening and my office is just around the corner, so I'll pop in- DJ Sinclair will be there and Sennheiser staff will be on hand, I'll see if I can mention this, but any other comments / thoughts / votes on the poll would be great.

Hi guys, had a chat with them last night and as always with good companies, they're open to what their users are looking for. So please vote and see if there is some kind of consensus on the issue of portable amps.
