Recommend this Indian an amp for Shrue 846/Westone 4r under $500

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I live in India where no CIEM/IEMs/no amps are available.Heck not even an audiologist who knows how to take ear models. but that's another story. 

 

I've a Westone 4r which I enjoy with Comply P level tips. 

 

I would be visiting US for a week & going to pick an Shure 846 for myself ,this would be only chance in the next 8 months to buy a portable amp at reasonable prices (without hassle of customs).My budget is $500 . I'm on a tight business trip ,so won't be able to goto stores ,I would be calling for the amp right away to my hotel.

 

I listen to all kind of music including Rock ,Jazz ,Pop, trance etc. .My primary source is iPhone 5

 

Could you please help me select a good portable amp for myself.

 

I've ruled out Balance Amp as this would mean , I've get another cable for both Shure & Westone 4r , I would rather spend all money on portable amp (Correct me if wrong)

 

I've been looking at Pico Slim/RSA Shadow as recommended by gift guide but confused with both.

 

 

PS : I've been recommended JDS Labs C5 by SkyBleu on a post made in a wrong section . I'm reading reviews regarding those as well.

You'd be better off getting a new DAP like the X3 or DX50 since the DAC of Apple stuff is not great.

Thanks for lin , but DAP is something I don't wish to do.

 

I love my iPhone & iPod and wish to continue with them.

Maybe a DAC amp combo then?

I was in your same situation last week, instead of a DAP, I got a Fiio E17 - an AMP/DAC so I can use it with both my mobile and laptop. India doesn't have an audiologist? which part of India are you from?
