My current DAP is a Fiio x3.
Thanks in advance.
YAYYY! Good to see some Malaysia citizen getting into good audio! [Malaysian here].
Anyway, given you already have the FiiO X3 which is more than enough for portable use, you do not need an amp to make it better. The X3 itself already have excellent built into amp and DAC. So using an amp is definitely not necessary at all; in fact, it may not make a huge difference for some headphones!
As for headphone, I am not sure about those you mentioned but I do like AKG K167 for the genre of music you listen to! I think you can find it at Jaben if I am not mistaken
Hope it helps!
