Here's the deal. soon I will replace my stolen V-Moda Crossfade LP2's with ATH-M50's, and Crossfade LP's. I need a portable amp that can pick up on any shortcomings of these headphones and isn't too expensive. $50-$100 max.

FiiO E6 or E11 or JDS CmoyBB are options. Or take a look at this sellers portable amps.

For example I just went for the C&C BH which has been rated higher then E11 by some and a whopping 80 hours run time from a single charge! There's also a C&C BK model for around $20 cheaper.

Here's the BH, you can check the sellers other amps by checking his items. :smile:

I'd consider the E6 for M50's. They are easy to drive headphones that sound good even without an amp, so the amp power won't be much of an issue. The E6 isn't the most powerful amp around but some of the EQ settings pair really well with M50's in my opinion. I find the bass on the M50's to be a bit loose and overwhelming, the E6 really tightens it up for me. The added bonus of the E6 being tiny and very inexpensive is also a big plus.

Well I don't have the money yet but I will look into it and see for myself. Even though I am set on getting the E11, any number of things might get me to change my mind, two of those things being price and portability.

Treble=Highs right? I know that the Crossfade LP2s have recessed highs and I don't know if Crossfade LP's have the same kind of driver preset, so I would like to know what amp can also boost that to something decent if it comes down to it.
