Suggestion for a portable amp for iphone 5/ath-ws99

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Greetings Gurus!

 

I have just acquired a pair of ws99, and am not sure what amp should I choose. The budget is 50-150 usd.

 

Also, suggestions for gears that work with mac pro is also welcomed!

Heya,

 

Is there a reason you think you need an amplifier? That series of headphones are built to not need external amplification. They're very efficient. 102 db/mw and 37ohms. No amplifier needed here.

 

Now, if you want a nice portable DAC/AMP that will be better quality in general to use with that Mac Pro, and on the side, function as a portable amplifier for any headphone (again not that you need this with the WS99), then the Fiio E07k or Fiio E17 comes to mind.

 

Very best,

I use the fiio e17 with mine

I tried just about all of the fiio except the e07 and e12

and the e17 is the best thus far
