Hi there! Current setup is:
Macbook Air playing flac with VOX
IPhone 6 playing flac with VOX
Momentum headphones.
Got some money to spend and want better sound. So.... Fiio x3 for portable and USB dac use with my macbook or better headphones.... Thinking about fidelio x2 for home or audio technica msr7 for more resolution anywhere.
What do u think? Budget is around €250.
Thabks for any input.

I'm guessing it's better to upgrade headphones first, then use whatever is leftover in the budget for any DAC/amp.
But getting the new FiiO X3 Gen II (X3K) is tempting.

I just found a friend that owns the first x3 gonna borrow it for a while and see if my momentum actually benefit from it, otherwise... Putting the money into better headphones. Or save for BETTER headphones.
