Which Portable Amp to power DT880 600ohm (Fiio E12 or EHP-O2?)

Hi everyone

I'm new to the forum I just picked up a pair of Beyerdynamic DT880 600ohm version, I had to snap them up as I thought it was a bargain for only £110.

Since these are 600ohm I'll definitely need an amp to use them away from home or work so I'm looking at options.

The EHP-O2 looks like a perfect option the only problem is the size, as I'de like to use it while travelling and such, which led me to the Fiio E12 but is it anywhere near the same kinda league despite being in the same price range, does it even have the power to drive the 600ohm DT880?

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks allot

I guess E12 can drive DT 600 Ohm version. I am not sure, if that would bring out the best sq of these cans.

The FiiO E11 is capable of driving 600-Ohm headphones and I believe the E12 is more powerful.

But using open 600-Ohm headphones for traveling does not seem practical.

Get some JVC HA-S680 closed folding on-ear headphones, $80, leave the DT880s at home.
