I'm very new to all the world of headphones and amps, and would really appreciate some advice!
I just got a pair of RHA MA750i IEMs as my first venture into decent quality headphones based on some reviews on here (they're in the post and I can't wait for them to arrive!). I was thinking of buying an amp to use with them - I'll be using my iphone 4s to listen to music (mostly rock / indie / folk guitar music), but as I'm new to all this, I was wondering if it would be beneficial to use an amp with these headphones? In principle, would an amp increase the sound quality from an iphone, or would the headphone do a good enough job on their own with their inbuilt drivers etc?
I was looking at the fiio e5 or e6 which are relatively inexpensive - would these be a good choice? I don't want to spend too much on anything, and these seems small and portable which I'd need.
Last question - I've read that using an amp would mean that I couldn't use the iphone 3-button remote on the headphones (which I can accept if the sound quality is better) but is there another amp that would allow me to use the remote?
As I say, I'm new to all this, so appreciate your help, and sorry if I'm asking questions with obvious answers!
Thanks in advance for your help!
