As you can probably tell by the title, I am pretty much a noob when it come to audio equipment. I've been thinking about buying a portable amp for a while now, but I have no idea what it actually does and whether buying one would be a worthy investment for me. I've tried to look it up on these forums but haven't really found anything conclusive - some people say that SQ dramatically improves, while others just say it makes the music volume louder.
FWIW, if I did get an amp, I would mostly be looking to use it with my Logitech UE6000 headphones - I've heard people say that these headphones benefit from an amp, but again, I don't know how much of a difference it will make, especially most of my music files aren't lossless. I'm considering the Fiio e6 or e11 simply because of the low cost to performance ratio, but again, I want to now if such an investment would be worthy at all.
Thanks for the help!
