From cheaper to more expensive (particularly in the $100 range, but please feel free to give more expensive alternatives), I'd like an amp that would pair well with a bassy in-ear monitor that could use a little more brightness in the treble. A bit more to the mids would work, too, if it comes with the brightened treble.
 
I imagine the ICON mobile would fit the bill, could people please confirm and give other options?
 
Thanks!
 
You can pm if need be.

You can always get yourself a decent cmoy and try out a few opamp. I'll say OPA2227 is a good place to start.

OPA2227 will do well for a treble/mid sound? Okay, that sounds good.

how is the battery life with a rechargeable 9 volt?

Since you already has T3, I think you shouldn't need another amp. If Ear Monitor is close to what an Atrio will sound like, T3 will have fairly good synergy with it IMO.
