Will any portable amps power the he-500?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking into getting an He-500 to use with my macbook pro, currently I have an iBasso D2, and a JDS C5D on the way, I'm uncertain if either of these can power an HE-400, can anyone help me out with this? I use my laptop all around the house and really don't want to lug an external power source with me.  If they can be powered by a portable amp, which one would be the best to use?  I'm willing to spend between 100 and 300 dollars.

This one claims to and those at a Head-Fi meet early this year talked it up.  Can't tell you anything about it from personal experience.

The iCan i decent with the HE-500, definitely enjoyable, though the bass isn't the same as from a well powered amp. The e17 is under my standard so to speak, but I could do with the iCan.
