The iBasso DX100 are highly detailed DAPs with inner powerful AMPs but if external AMPs needed only then iBasso PB2, RSA Mustang P51, ALO MKIII, Stepdance are highly recommended.

What is a good amp for Westone 4R under 500 dollars? I listen to mainly rocky and classical music.


if you want portable (you can put it in your jean's pocket), your choice is between arrow4G and pico slim
 
if you want transportable amp, your choice can be found here or here

The Arrow 4G or FiiO E11 are highly recommended with the W4s. Very clean, effortless sound with low distortion and a Iack of coloration that often happens with sensitive BAs and improper impedance matching. I also found they sounded great out of the iPhone 4. The DX100s were good, but a bit overboard for these IMO.
