I'm looking for a way build a hidden ear bud. I want a portable Amp that will be strong enough to let me hear sound enough to distinguish words. No high quality music or anything like that.
I don't want to blow a ton of money on something that might not work well, but I also don't want to buy 2 amp because the first one wasn't quite enough.
I clearly don't know much at all but I was looking at the FiiO E11 for $60.
I know it will likely be hard for anyone to even make a guess as to how much power I need for this because you haven't done anything similar.

The in ear magnets that I want to use are : http://i62.tinypic.com/2zhfh3r.png
1 = Standard Magnets 20£
2 = "Amplified" Magnets 30£
Amplified cost 12$ more and I'm not sure if that is even near worth it.
They sure are expensive, but I don't really have another choice.
I want the most power per dollar out of a portable amp. Any feedback/comment is greatly appreciated.
PS: I want to use an iPod shuffle for the recordings if that matters.
