Pretty sure he's just headphone out straight to the E11 without a DAC. 
 
I've given the E6 to friends to use with their headphones/smartphones and it blew their minds, and E11 is up step up from E6. 
 
So now he wants even better sound quality from an even better amp. 
 
I suggest E12A or Creative E3 or E5

Does E3 have the built in lightning adapter for the DAC? I think E5 does.

Hi I thought there was no good lightning audio cable. Yes I'm running a regular line out. I never looked At the creative e 5. I also have read that the dac in iPhone 6 is good. So now I have to decide between the e5 and the e12a. Whoa. There is also the amp case I could buy. Thoughts comparing the 3 of these with the iPhone 6?

I don't know anything about the "amp case."

The E12a is headphone amp; the E5 is a headphone amp and DAC. I'd say give the E5 a shot, rather than double amping the headphone amp on the iPhone with the E12a.
