Headstage Arrow, Pico Slim, RSA Shadow, or TTVJ Slim?

 

I like the form factor of these amps and I'm primarily using it for my iems. Just wanna know which one has more power to drive my full sized headphones (Sennheiser HD650). And yes, i already have a desktop setup.

 

From my research, the Headstage Arrow and TTVJ slim seems to have more power than the Pico Slim and RSA Shadow, am i correct?

Hey there bud! I haven't used your already mentioned amps enough to give them a justified opinion, but I can easily recommend the Fiio E12! It's just a fantastic value all around! It had enough power to amp my HD650 just fine! It's bass boost is very clean and In the subbass region really bringing out the lower frequencies clearly! The power on them is immense as well! I haven't done too much extensive testing, but when I tried a pair of 600 ohm dt880s they drove them louder than I needed and with a full sound! I feel like for what you need, you may not have to spend more than this amp! Though from what I read and only tried (once shortly) the Pico Slim should have enough power to make your cans sound loud and well bodied!

Good luck, friend! smily_headphones1.gif

Those are made for IEMs. From what I've heard the Pico Slim and Shadow doesn't have enough power unless you listen at low volumes. You should check the website. It says it somewhere.
