Hi,

I own a Shure SE530 PTH and just recently got a Nokia BH-905 (It works both wireless and wired)
I'm planning to add a Sennheiser HD650 to my collection and I'm aware I will need to buy a portable amp.

What I'm looking for is something that can drive especially the HD650, but also the Shure and the Nokia. Has to be small and portable.

1.Would the Shure SE530 even benefit from an amp...seems to be getting great audio/volume from my Nokia N97. tHE se530 just sounds crazy good, can't imagine that it can get any better.

2.Is was looking in the $150 price range, specifically the Rock Hopper Mini3: Portable Amps

3.Or should I look for something a bit up the ladder for the HD650? If so, suggestions are welcome....thanks.

I use the iBasso T3 with Shure 530 and Cowon players. Works really well, the amp adds nice bass that sounds more natural than the mach3bass that cowon players have. So I only use the iBasso amp, no extra sounds enhancements from the Cowon players, and the EQ on flat. But I don't know about the HD650..
