I second the shiit amp. I never heard it, but I hear good things about it. 

Also, further down the road you might want to consider buying a DAC as a laptop is kind of a weak source. Shiit Modi/Magni combo would be a nice addition in my oppinion.

that's what my fiio e17 is for, it's a dac/amp combo but i guess it wont be as good as other more expensive ones, i'll plug it into the e09k when i get an upgraded pair of headphones in the future

Yes, sorry, you are right. I had the Fiio E11 in mind :o, my bad.

The FiiO E09K has an output impedance of around 10 Ohm so you might want to use it only for headphone with impedance 80Ohm and above just to avoid damping factor.

+1 for the language thingy

No love for Aune T1? xD

True. Making fun of somebody, just because he's not fluent in english is childish. This is an international forum and ofcourse you can't expect from everyone to write perfect english.

I did mention that if he was foreign my comment wasn't meant for that, I just see a lot of post from young pre teens like "i got beat do but my bro say skullcandy were better what i doooo guys?" and nobody ever comments on it cuz they think the person is a retard and the OP bumped the thread with no comments and I was just letting him know that if people can't understand the post they don't give advice.

And how much are you looking at spending? The momentum on ears have more bass and so do the V-moda M100's but those are mostly side steps. If you can afford LCD-2's go that rout but in the $500-$800 range I'm not that sure, most people that break the $300 mark aren't looking for bass heavy/pop oriented headphones.

what's damping factor? and so the e09k is not the best choice for sennheiser hd650's?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damping_factor <--- here. Basically, the output impedance of the amp should be eight times less than the impedance of x headphone to avoid any FR changes from it's original FR.

FR = Frequency xD

It's suitable for higher impedance headphone as well as low (powerful), transportable with built into battery for recharge, and it's within the OP's budget. Just my though
