    The Sub-$100 Portable Amps Shootout – 11(+1) amps compared

      My main sources would be my rooted Note 3 and my iPod Nano g6. With that information, what would you suggest?

    looking for the least expensive portable amp that can drive 400.ohm headphones.

    I have a pair of akg k340 electrostatic hybrids. Was looking for something that can drive this beast.

    Roll Call for Team AKG

    I have a pair of vintage K340, the electrotet/dynamic hybrid. works great, but I am in need of a portable dac/amp. is anyone familiar with what would be the LEAST expensive dac/amp I could possibly afford that could run these things?

    low profile active 2.0 system?

    They need to go through my monitors 3.5mm out. Also at that price I could buy 3 benq or Asus evo/mlg monitors which have built-in speakers. Sent from my SPH-L300 using Tapatalk 2

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)

    Actually Shure's one of the go-tos for closed cans as well. The 440, 840, and 940 are kings of their price range.

    Pioneer SE-A1000 (Sennheiser HD 650 for $45?)
