Just a little bit about myself: I'm currently a rather impoverished university student who, though I've always loved music, is only just now getting into doing research and actually spending money on quality instead of branding.
As such, I am rather poorly versed on the subject. A month and a bit ago I did some extensive reading through the headphone buyer's guide and finally decided on the KRK KNS-8400. I am really loving them so far (so much better than the Beats and Sennheiser stuff I've gotten off the shelf), but am finding the bass balancing a little off and the power output from my Galaxy Nexus also doesn't seem to be up to snuff.
As such, I am looking at buying an in-line portable amp. I seem to have narrowed it down to two relatively cheap ones: the FiiO E6 and the Fiio E07K. The price difference between the two brought up my question of: what does the E07K do so much better than the E6? Am i paying for the display and more customization in EQ settings etc? overall sound quality? and do I even need a DAC?
Thanks for all your help!
EDIT: Forgot to ask, what do you all listen to on your expensive cans? What am I missing in my audio experience?
