Loud and clear MP3 player for 68ohm headphones?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I currently use a Samsung Galaxy S4 for portable listening use but there are problems with this. The main problem is the volume. It is really quiet at the highest volume, then there's the battery life which sucks when listening to music. I have looked at buying a portable AMP for the S4 but i have read it's quite complicated to set this up properly. What MP3 player will drive the headphones to a really loud good sounding volume? Thanks in advance

Thanks mate, do i need to buy anything additional with these or will they sound loud and get as they are?

 

Thanks in advance

Their amp sections should be able to power any portable headphone with ease.

I have the Audio Technica ATH-Pro700MK2 .. it's a DJ headphone at 68Ohm although it said 38ohm on the website..

The X3 won't struggle with it. It has as much power (maybe more?) as the E17 amp if I remember correctly.

Does it actually sound like you're listening through an amp with the X3?

Having never used the X3 I can't comment on the sound.

FiiO's are known to be pretty neutral, it won't color the sound. Though my ears aren't probably the most trained here.

Fair enough, thanks for the reply. I would have stuck with the Samsung Galaxy S4 for portable listening but the sound reproduction is unbelievably quiet.
