Warm Sounding Portable amp?

Discussion in 'Portable Headphone Amps' started by kclone, Apr 30, 2015.

    Looking for a warmer sounding portable amp or amp/DAC combo for the etymotic ER 4s.  Budget is 500.00 US or below.  Thanks.

    I was recently using Cayin C5 with my ER4S, it was quite thick, warmish whilst remaining rather detailed. Have a search for the Cayin C5 thread.

    It's a pretty good amp.

    I'm looking for the same thing. Any other suggestions. 
    Is E07K a good option?
    I want warm and lush sound... to make HD 600 warm like HD 650 when I need it.

    JDS Labs C5 (amp) or C5D (DAC/amp). definitely.
    but perhaps labrat is right. the first step is to get the headphones that suit your ears, then seek an amp that mates well.

    There is a member with a blue ALO International + (amp/DAC) for under $400 and a member with a black one for under $450 - original MSRP $599 - low output impedance and a great musical presentation - it uses the CS4398 DAC that's in the AK240 - it has a nice warm punchy sound....

    I hate to do this but I like to recommend something else, portaphile 627x. This is the most smooth sounding amp I own, and while it can be boring for me it sounds like just what you want.

    Based on my experience - after decent burn in: Ray Samuels Tomahawk or Predator, or HeadAmp Pico.
