I am looking at improving my listening pleasure while riding my Motorcycle. I current use either an iPad Shuffle or my iPhone 4s. I use Got Ears?® Brand Challenger Custom Molded Isolation Earphones. I've never been overly impressed with them but they are comfortable and dont hurt me. Because they are "in-Ear" I dont have an issue with low volume. The issue I have is low Bass. I can get better Bass with some $50 sony ear buds but they hurt my ear over time while wearing a helmet. I've been told that a mini amp would resolve the low Bass issue.
Another concern is I may go to in-Helmet speakers in the future, and if I do Volume would be an issue at speed due to wind noise ect.
1. Will a mini Amp help in this situation (enough to justify the cost)?
2. As far as mini AMP's go, I am looking between the Eo2i, E6, E11 and C&C BH. I don't want overkill but I don't want something ineffective. Opinions and recommendations?
3. Connect via the headphone jack or LOD cable (if so which one)?
Thanks for any edvice in advance.
