I just bought an HD558 for gaming and music about a week ago and so far I'm loving it. I've been reading up on my headphones and this has lead me to the DAC/AMP world. I'm extremely interested in obtaining a portable DAC/AMP to see how much better my music and gaming experience will get. Now I'm not an audiofile and have no idea what great sound sounds like. So, I'm hoping to enlist some help to select a portable DAC/AMP. I'm looking for:
- Pairs well with HD 558
- Does not break the bank ~$150 dollars
- Works with iPhone 5 (although I can budge a little with this and just grab my old 3GS for the non-lightning port)
I'm currently looking at the Fiio e07k and e17, but if you guys think there's a more worthy device, please don't hesitate to recommend!
