Portable Amp, which to go with?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, first off I'd like to say I love this forum, and this will be my first post of many here, and I turn into an audio guy and build a collection

 

Been lurking the last few weeks while researching which headphones to go with

 

I have a $300ish budget and have decided to go with the ATH M50's, now I need to find an amp, and am in need of some help.

 

I've narrowed it down to everything FiiO:

 

E6

Olympus E10

E17

E09K

 

 

I'm currently using an HP G7-2323DX Laptop, so can anyone help me out with my choice and why?

 

Thanks :)

 

Random Edit: with the M50's, my ears from top to bottom are 2.5inches roughly, will the m50's fit me fine?

Forgive my lack of a specific suggestion, I have not had the opportunity to use any of the amps on your narrowed list.  That being said, perhaps I can ease your worry a bit by telling you that I have a pair of M50s and they sound really good no matter what I find to plug em into.  At this very moment I'm listening to my M50s while streaming tunes through my phone, which I am then piping into my iBasso D10 via USB.  Grin goes ear to ear. 

 

I imagine you will be very happy with which ever amp you decide to go with.
