The highest Ive ever had to use is medium gain for my old school Mad Dogs, this thing definitely lives up to its name.

 

Sorry to ask this question once again but what would you guys recommend for batteries for around $30 for a pair (I don't need a charger unless its li)? I'm looking at battery life and longevity, not so much power since I already have more than enough of that.

I'm currently using these. They last an easy 45 hours, but I've gotten more when I exclusively use IEMs (Low or Med Gain), longest being 53 hours.

Thanks for the suggestion but I only have a NiCd charger though. But with that sort of battery life I may have to upgrade to Lithium.

Honestly, the largest capacity NiCd Rechargeable 9V I've seen is 300mAh. I've used these - http://www.batteriesplus.com/pc-36075-36075-MHR84V300.aspx

 

From what I remember they last about 15 hours. Lithium is really the way to go if longevity is important to you.

I really didn't want to spend $5X on batteries but Ive been convinced since I want that sort of longevity, going to lithium... My wallet really really hates you Greed :smile:

Okay... I am listening at home to the Westone ES5 with the Pico Power fed by USB Monica. I have to say that it sounds fantastic.The bass slams hard but retains good texture. It is a lot of bass by ES5 standards but not too much bass. So I think that the ES5 can handle what the Pico Power delivers.

Excellent review, Frank. The Pico Power really is an amazing amplifier - that happens to be portable...

I do wonder how the pico power compares with the RSA Intruder.

Wanna order Pico Power, but their website mention the delivery time is 4 to 6 weeks. Is it correct because the info of PP seems not update for a long time?!
