Will a Fiio E6 portable amp improve the sound of my second generation iPod?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello head-fi community,

 

I recently purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD 518s and while they sound great on my computer, the sound on my old Ipod nano was a little weak. This got me into researching various amps and the E6 looked like a good buy. I also purchased a LOD connector as I've head it will produce better sound from the iPod since it won't be using the built in amp. Can I expect to see at least an equal, or better level of performance in comparison to how my headphones sound on my desktop?

 

Thank you for any information and reassurance you can provide me.

I tried using the Fiio E6 (and Clip Zip) with my Sony MDR-V6 (60-Ohm) headphones, after a week I stopped using the E6 as I really did not make a difference.

I would say to spend extra and get the Fiio E11.

Darn I was thinking about getting the E11 but that's a pretty big investment for my first amp.

The E11 is a great value though, especially if you get the package from the Micca Store which comes with a second battery and external charger.
