Looking for recommendations for a portable headphone DAC/AMP with 1/4" (6.3) jack.

Hi fellow Head-fiers,

 

As the title suggests, I travel a lot and am looking for a portable DAC/AMP that I can use with my laptop (USB) and has a 1/4" (full-size) headphone jack.  I would rather not have to "downsize" the jack on my HE500s.

 

Impressions and recommendations appreciated.

 

thanks

John

Of this list, I have not heard the Olasonic or AMI, so I can't comment on their performance. However, I have the Concero HP and I've listened to the HiFi-M8.

 

I prefer the Concero HP. To me it is slightly more revealing and as a deeper presentation. However, the HiFi-M8 is pretty good.

 

BTW, keep in mind that these are the models (I know of) that have a 6.3mm output, which means that many other models are left out.
