Amp Required for Shure SE425?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,

 

I was just wondering if buying an amp is actually cost-effective for the Shure SE425 or is running through the iPod/iPhone good enough for it? Considering it is only a dual-driver and low impedance will an amp yield great improvements in detail, separation, etc? If you guys recommend an amp, which one would you recommend with these IEMs?

 

I am still new to all these kind of stuff so I apologize in advance if this is common sense I searched around and couldn't find a solid answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What is your source right now? I think they are good already out of a phone line out but you can always try the FiiO E12, really good amp lots of functions. I sometimes use it with my shure se315

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response! I went ahead with the E07K. For sure my iPod classic has enough juice to drive it properly. I am mainly using the E07K for the XBA-4's
