I agree that information is a bit vague on this one. We don't have a budget for example. We don't know what "portable" means (is an o2 portable?) all we know is, entry level and basshead for m50's

i would recomend the fiio e11 or fiio e7, ive owned both and you cant really beat them for the price. they arent audiophile grade quality. but they are nice entry level amps. i think the the e7 can be had for like 80 shipped, and the e11 is like 52 or around 60.00

E11 for sure at that price range.

I went with the PA2V2 and I also bought the go dap 3 for my 3GS for only $20 on amazon. Came across the Go Dap 3 while doing research on portable amps for an iPhone.

So just to be sure: You asked which amp. Everyone said e11 or cmoyBB. You asked if we recommend it over the pa2v2. Everyone still said go with the e11. Then you bought the pa2v2 for headphones that don't need it?
Sometimes i just don't get it...
None the less i hope you found what you were looking for and you don't mind reporting back how your new setup improved your experience.
Don't get me wrong, i'm like that sometimes too. You have already decided and wanted confirmation... Don't get the feeling that i'm bashing you for your choice. I'd really like to hear how the pa2v2 works out for you, as i am thinking about getting it myself as a secondary portable.

The reason why I didn't pick the E11 is because I came across the C&C bh and from what I've read it is the e11 killer. I'm planning to buy the c&c bh within 2 months

You might look at the E12 before you leap in a couple of months.  I think there are some Head-Fi comparison reviews.  Otherwise, the C&C appears to be well respected.  Good luck!
