Does this have enough horsepower to run a set of Sennheiser 650s without the need of a separate amp? Thanks!

N3 will drive HD650 to very high sound level, but it will sound congested and dull, this combination won't demonstrate the performance of HD650 satisfactory.

Thanks! Guess the search will continue. Need something that won't break the bank.

Check out Cayin C5, this is portable headphone amplifier, not a DAP, but we have happy customer using a hi-fi mobile phone such as LG V20 with Cayin CT driving HD650.

Most DAPs, even pricey ones, aren't able to push the 650s to their full potential. I can recommend one that can but it's at least $300.
The C5 is powerful, though.

If you get the C5 for your phone, make sure it's the DAC + AMP https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00W56093A/ref=twister_B019F8G042?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
It occasionally appears here on Massdrop, too.

The C5DAC DAC/Amp has less then half the output of the C5 Headphone amp., for heavy load such as HD650, the C5 will be a better choice. Ideally the C5 works better with a "genius " line out signal but in case of budget constraint, a decent Hi-Fi mobile phone such as V20 can serve the purpose for the moment, or at least as a stepping stone to a DAP as source for C5 down the road.
