I'm thinking of getting a hd 650 and I was wondering if my Fiio E11 will be able to power them properly.
Will a Fiio E11 drive a HD650 properly?

it can drive with an enough amount power but definitely a "no no" if u're serious with sound quality.
you could definitely consider going on the hd 650 thread and asking what people pair with the 650s. Theyre not an easy headphone to get a GREAT sound from, but not that hard to get a decent sound from.
The O2 ODAC combo, or just the amp, could be a possibility for you. Schiit stacks could also work for you, though ive heard some very mixed thoughts about the magni and modi stack with the 650.
My experience with desktop amps has been fairly limited so i wont give you too much insight on that, but to get a great sound out of the 650 with a portable amp would cost a bit more than 250. At least from what Ive gotten to try with the 650s.
