Hi guys! i want to make an ultra portable headphone setup, i own ATH-esw9 i love them a lot but i feel i want more soundstage and i need better instrument separation (my source is sansa fuze). I have ibasso p3+ before and i really like how they separate the instrument. Will iBasso t3 did great job like p3+ does ? can you suggest another amp with similar size to t3 (or at least can fit in the samba j2 headphone case)?
thanks ....

Well the T3's are made for IEM's or any headphones that can be easily driven. The esw9's being quite up there in the price range, i am not sure how hard they are to drive.
And since you specified any particular budget, I am gonna recommend you the Arrow 12HE for most of your needs.

42-ohm and 103 db/mw
I'd be surprised if they were hard to drive.
A good amp should still make them sound at least a little better than the built-in amp in your fuze.
