    Question about the Soundmagic E10s

    I just got my first pair of decent headphones, the Soundmagic E10s after I they were recommended here. I bought them because of their reputation for good bass while still retaining a clear sound.

    Headphone amp into Audio Interface?

    I recently bought DT 770 pro 80's and a FiiO E10 which work fine together but I mainly use my audio interface (MBox 2) since I am mostly recording music.

    Mid to High-End IEM vs vs Low-End Custom CIEM

    I am looking for a new set of IEMs - leaning toward the Fidue A83's right now.   Wanted to see if it was worth checking out a lower end CIEM like Custom Art instead. It will be probably another $100-150 extra after impressions - worth the extra?

    Will a headphone amp get rid of the 'hiss' noise?
