Have been using the mba for a few months and i love it. My friend gave me his old e11 last week and the sound was quite different. I love both of them now and was wondering if its advisable to use both at the same time?

Try it.  What have u got to lose?

You are not really double amping the headphones (only the power of the second amp engaes the drivers), the first amp in effects boost the voltage of the signal to the second amp, as an active line stage or pre-amp would do. If you prefer this sound, then you may want to look  at getting a dedicated preamp. I know I do, and much prefer my V200/HE500 combo when the signal is first passed through a Rogue 99 Magnum pre.

Thanks for the advice guys :)

 

I tried both together and the sound doesn't seem as good. Guess I will stick to one for now!
