Does the C710 benefit from being amped at all? I love the sound I get from it, and would like to take one step further. I do plan on getting full sized cans later on, but I've decided I would probably rather get an amp first since I can use it for both my IEM and [future] pair of cans.

The C710 are very sensitive and easy to drive to begin with so I hadn't really even considered amping them. I did do some quick amped/unamped listening comparisons nonetheless and didn't really notice any improvement. It was only a quick comparison, but if there are any benefits for the C710 from amping, I'd say they would have to be very subtle. For amps i tried both the XM5 and the Headroom Mirco Amp. I say save your money for the headphones and wait on the amp until you know what those headphones will need.
