Hi Chaps and Chapsesses (Meh, the word is allowed on the innernetz),
I've got the above set up and I'm really happy with it. I've paired them with AKG 451's (for now) but I am seriously considering getting some new headphones. I'm considering buying AKG K551's as I can get them for a steal for £100 new from a trusted supplier (Approx $150 USD). I'm concerned about the lack of bass but love the comments about the detail and soundstage on the K551's. I'm thinking that the bass boost on the E11K may help with the lack of bass on the K551's. I know I'll look like a cyberman but I'm not too worried about that.
It's not a done deal yet, I'm wondering what you guys would suggest as a good match up for the Colorfly. I'm concerned as the Colorflys' sound is quite bright that I may need to pair them with a warmer sounding headphone.
Fiio recommend headphones up to 150 Ohms for use with the E11K.
I listen primarily to Rock / Acoustic and occasionally Metal. My budget is £100, not a penny more, no stretching. My set up is a portable set up and that will be its primary use. I've read about the portability issues with the 551's but again, it doesn't bother me.
Any recommendations apart from the 551's? I'm definitely not considering IEM's as I suffer with infections due to an immune deficiency.

Any help will be appreciated
