First headphone amp. Need advice please.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

How are you?
I am writing this thread because I am going to purchase my first headphone amp and I need some advice.

The amp will be used with an iPod Classic 5th Gen and some Philips Citiscape Uptown Over-ears.

I will probably buy some other Headphones in the future, but they are not in my imidiate plans.

 

I am currently torn between the Fiio E11 and the E12.

Basically, the E11 has a great price and the E12 cost double the amount.

 

My main question, is it worth it to spend double the money for the E12? What will I gain?

 

Please help me out. I am sure many people here have either one of the Fiio's or even both.

 

Thank you.

Cheers!

Thank you for the link,

I have been reading some more things.

I see I can get a Fiio E17 that is both a DAC and an Amp and use it as an amp with my ipod and as a DAC and Amp with the computer.

 

Regarding the E17 as an amp with the Ipod, how does it compare to both the E11 and E12?

 

Thank you.

Cheers!
