Well then yeah it is worth it.  You'll definitely see an improvement.  Going from hd600 straight out of my computer, to a fiio e7 I could tell a pretty decent improvement.  I've since upgraded and my senns sound waaaaay better.  

I've listened to the e9 and its really good for a budget amp and its got loads of power.  There's also the o2 which seems to get good reviews by jds labs for ~150.  Oh and also its "semi-portable", if thats something that you were looking into

Even a cmoy will make high impedance cans like HD600 sound better.
