Need? Definitely not. I do like it better with an amp, Cayin C5. I am a basshead, but I do enjoy loud music from time to time.
For me, the amp brings out the bass obviously, increases the volume to nicer levels. I'm definitely in the minority here though.
That's only when no mobile, not worth it to stack otherwise.
I am a basshead too. I have a fiio e17k now. With this phone i don't need the DAC so i am thinking about trading it for an e12. It has been two days and tmobile still hasn't ship, but i got a good deal at $500.
