Hi, I'm torn between the HD 650 and the beyer DT 880 premium 250hms. I was wondering if the HD 650 would be okay with my Fiio E11 + Titanium HD. Thanks!

The Fiio E11 can easily drive 250-ohm Beyerdynamic headphones.
Personally, I would get the cheaper DT880 Pro 250-Ohm headphone and something like the Magni amp.
(sell off the E11)
In your opinion a E9 can easily drive HD 800. Right?
I know zero about the Sennheiser HD800s.
As the Senn HD800 is 300-Ohm, the Fiio E9/E09K amp should be able to drive them.
But if your going to spend cash ($1500) for a Senn HD800, should at least spend a few hundred (or more) for a head amp.
(The E9/E09K seems like a good value, but a $100 amp. can only be so good).
What a nonsense. There is zero evidence to suggest that the amp on the stx, which is similar to the e9, is in any way technically uncapable of getting pretty much the most out of the hd650. There is also no evidence that there is anything beyond the technical side of things when it comes to amps. In short: both the fiio e9 and stx are a great choice, whether for the HD650 or the HD800. These headphones don't offer anything those amps have trouble with.
Also, the idea of getting a 'more expensive amp' to go with the hd800 (or even hd650) just because it makes sense intuïtively is very short sighted and just not grounded in reality.
And you have plugged the E09K amp into the Titanium HD's RCA outputs?
(slightly cleaner analog audio signal, over the Titanium HD's headphone jack)
