Do you guys reckon it is worth using a small, portable external DAC or amp with the FiiO X3 when on the move? Headphones I'll be using:
- Shure SE535
- Shure SE315 or something similar
- Sennheiser HD518
- V-Moda M80
- Senn Momentum
I have a FiiO E12 and can get a FiiO E17 if need be, but am not really sure if there is going to be a significant improvement - if at all - by using these devices. My assumption is that I'll need to get up to a $500 level or so in order to actually get a benefit.
Sound about right?
Edited to add: I have a bigger amp for desktop-based listening - am mainly trying to figure out the best option for portable listening.
