Not really.. It would be better. I guess Digizoid zo 2.3 would fit me perfectly, but sadly its impossible to get one.

Would a low impedance headphone amplifier improve the audio quality?
A FiiO E17 DAC/Amp could be used with the Macbook Pro and iPhone (amp only with iPhone).
A FiiO E11K headphone amplifier would also work with both Macbook and iPhone.
Yea, MacBook and iPhone got enough power.. The thing is, I was able to set up a system wide EQ on Mavericks and once I've finished with my EQ (just a bit more Bass etc) I was amazed. Same thing with Windows. I had Windows on the SAME mac and It had noticeably more Bass although it's the same Mac? I was also thinking about the new Digizoid but is it worth the money..? So expensive!
I had the Fiio E17 some years ago. I had it with the Sony MDR-1R and I could hear a hiss/noise that annoyed me so I've sent the Fiio back. Fiio E11K looks interesting indeed, but most people write that the bass boost is very marginal? That is my main wish. A little bit better quality and some Bass without distortion..
