I am very new to the world of audiophiles, so please excuse me from any obvious facts that many may already know.
I'm trying to buy a portable DAC/amp that would work well with my Sennheiser HD650 and for my smartphone Galaxy S3 LTE.
I'm wondering what is the point of a portable DAC/amp if you are gonna be using a slightly over-average IEM's or portable headhphones?
From what I've researched online, the portable DAC/amps make a little difference in the sound quality of most IEM's.
So wouldn't the portable DAC/amps have any value? Most likely I'm missing something here.
Putting that in mind, just what kind of earphones or headphones do I need in order to make full use of portable DAC/amps? I think many of us would agree that carrying a HD650 out to work or school wouldn't be too practical.
Thank you for reading and I will appreciate all the answers you give me.
