Hi guys! I'm new to the community and actually new to the field of HiFi so I am not an audiophile just yet. Thus, I have been studying a lot about audiophile terms and HiFi products and in the end ordered a pair of V-moda m100 to get me started with my lifelong journey as an audiophile.
I would like to get the best SQ on the go out of my rather limited budget so I decided to get a portable amp/dac which I decided that to be Fiio e18 since my source on the go is mainly HTC One. However, just yesterday when I was browsing through Fiio's products, I found that Fiio X3 is very powerful too. It supports 24-bit/192kHz (which I do not understand the meaning and benefits of it XD) which e18 does not, and works like a DAC on the computer as e18 does as well. I mainly listen to pop, hard rock, hip-hop and R&B on the go. Okay, here is my question; Which combination sounds better on the go? HTC One with poweramp+e18+m100 or X3+m100? Also which sound better on computer? Laptop+e18+m100 or Laptop+X3+m100? Thanks for the help!
