Just bought a pair of M50X for listening on my iPod but I'm also looking to get a portable amp to go along with it. My budget is around $100 to max $200 (preferably the former), and while I do appreciate bass, I don't want it to be overpowering. I'd say that based on initial listening experience of my iPod + M50X, the bass is just *slightly* on the weak side, but not by much. My only gripe is with the mids & highs, both of which sound a bit reserved or hidden. Can amps improve the soundstage, or at least push out the mids + highs a bit more?
So far I've looked at the Fiio E12, but I've read that it basically just boosts the bass?
