Fiio e6: worth it?
I'm using shure se215 with a fiio cable and I'm in the process of choosing a higher end pair of headphones
In this case just use it on Flat (no Eq)
I'm someone who generally isn't fond of having to use an amp due to the inconvenience compared to a smart phone. Is something small like the E6 enough to give a considerable boost or are you better off buying one that's bigger than your phone for a much larger price? They're "portable" like the FiiO E11, but I wouldn't bring that anywhere except in a car ride of 5+hours.
You could just get a Clip Zip 4GB, Rockbox it, add some Micro-SD memory.
and play all you music from the Clip Zip.
When you buy "higher end" headphones, try to get ones with a low impedance, easier for the Clip Zip to drive.
I'm not sure if the Coby can be loaded with the Rockbox firmware, but I'm sure the Clip zip offers better sound quality.
