In a way as it has been answered 100 times before. NO iem NEEDS an amp. Some benefit, some benefit a small tad. Fiio E5 is pretty much not a valuable difference. Unless the only thing you need is more bass. Hooking it up with a LOD as well improves a lot more

well really depends what your using, if say a computer then an amp with a dac would give a quiet a bit of improvement in my opinion..
fiio is only useful if you have large-ish headphones and your player doesn't give enough power...
