I have Samsung note 4. I would like to use these with the phone and off my laptop. What amp is recommended and is portable? Amazon pairs a couple of amps with the this headset, what are the thoughts on these?.
Look at some of the Fiio gear.
The FIIO E18 seems to be the one for Android phones. It's not clear to me if the other amps don't work with Androids or if there is a work around. The E17K is cheaper and available the E18 seems to be back ordered for the $159.00 price
The work around is using a short minipin patch cable to go from the headphone jack on the S4 to the input on the amp. It may take a bit of fiddling to get the sound to your liking, since the volume on both and how they play together are variable. This would work with *any* amp. Amps like the E18 utilize a Micro USB OTG cable to remove the android DAC and volume controls from the equation. This should also work with the E17s, and several other portable amp/DACs, the JDS C5D being one alternative: http://www.jdslabs.com/products/84/c5d-amplifier-dac/
