I know the classic setups of the Magni and Modi or the E09k with the E17k, sadly I'm not sure if it's needed to buy a system that's worth more than the actual headphones if the E11 can deliver if it's only 250 ohms.
Thanks in advance for the help :D
The problem using E11 from your laptop is - E11 isn't a dac/amp. The only way you can feed a signal to E11 is from your laptop/PC headphone out which is not the best way to hook up an amp. Most onboard audio found on laptops are quite poor therefore you need to look at dac/amps like (FiiO) E17, E18, E07K, E10 etc. which connect via USB bypassing your laptops onboard audio.

One non FiiO dac/amp I hear good things about is the Topping D1 MK2.
Or if you're going to be near a power point then Aune T1 is a great option.
Btw: You're in the wrong section, you might want to post in the portable amps section.
Start researching using our search feature on the options I mentioned.
