It's a great headphone, and was one of my favorites for a long time when I owned it, but it isn't really portable at all and it doesn't just leak sound.. It exposes your music for all to hear. Lol. And your call on the amp. I hope you like it.

OK guys question.  I recently got a pair of hd 558s.   While they can be driven straight from sansa clip they are kinda quiet on max.  I'm thinking of picking up an e11 just for a volume boost.   I already have a fiio e6 is it worth picking up the e11 as well?   It doesn't need to be super portable just needs to move from one room in the house to another easily.  I would like to order today so that I get it this week in mail.

I'm thinking of connecting it to my pc and when I feel like going portable just unplugging it and using it on my couch. BTW does it need any type of drivers?  I'm on linux

Have you tried the E6 with the 558 and the Sansa clip? Does that combination get you the volume you want? If not, I'd pick up another amp. The person who mentioned a good DAP was right about them driving the cans well, but if you don't wanna drop $250-$400+ then I would just stick with the amp option. The E7 should be fine, but to be honest, I don't know anything about it since I skipped it and went with the newer E07k. Here's a used E17 here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/720871/fiio-e17-alpen-headphone-amp-dac
if you feel you can benefit from a DAC/amp all in one solution with your netbook, I'd say go for it, but you probably only really need an amp, if the E6 isn't doing a satisfactory job for you.

using that combo now and its plenty loud. Just curious if e11 will improve much sq wise with flat eq?
