    "Fii0 E5"
    The Fiio E5 is a good amp for anyone looking for a small and portable solution. The only problem I have with is when you are moving the divice there is a lot a distortion and do not use in with a smart phone when you receive calls this amp go crazy start beeping, and this is really painful to your ears. Overall I would recommend  this amp to anyone who when small, lightweight, travel friendly and budget friendly amp to anyone who is starting into amp.

    "Nice Bass Boost"
    Pros - Increased Volume, Increase Bass
    Cons - Bass boost can sound bloated
    For 20 bucks, it isn't a bad piece of kit. Nice little volume boost, added bass kick to my SRH440s. Really can't go wrong if you want something tiny, portable and have a bass light set of cans or IEMs.
     
    The only con I really have with it, is that the volume down button is VERY close to the headphone out jack. If you have a set of phones that have a large plug the minus button can be hard to hit. Other then that it's a nice little starter portable amp. Now it lives in my car, to boost my phone going into my AUX in jack, which is very quiet.

    "Fantastic"
    Pros - quality, power, sleek
    Cons - you kidding? Its perfect.
    end of story. Best $25 I've ever spent on audio equipment. EVERYONE needs one of these.
     
    PS - I would sacrifice baby dolphins to this thing if it had a quality DAC in it. Its that good.
