This just looks too good to be true. I have a pair of ATH-M50, and I feel like I could be getting more out of them. I know the M50's are considered easy to drive, but when I plug them in my home stereo system, I immediatly hear that my Asus T100 or even my desktop line out are not quite enough. I'm a programmer, and I spend most of my day with headphones on my ears. I also listen to a lot of music at home, so I want to get an amp for both places. Buying 2 amps sounds ridiculous, buying a portable one with an internal battery is not interesting as I feel I would be paying for something I don't use and will be loosing something elsewhere. I was looking at the new Fiio E10K, but it doesn't look "portable" so to say. Sure I can carry it around, but it's not made to carry in a laptop bag 2-3 times a day, I'm afraid the knob will break within 6-12 months. I saw the DACport online at 250$-299$, and that's out of my budget. I log here, and omgsweetjesus it's here, in my price range.
I feel like I'm exactly the targeted customer for this product and that I would be overly satisfied with it. I'll still be able to use it later down the road, regardless of the new headphones I might buy (especially with the 1 Ohm 100$ freeby !!).
Am I on the good vibe here or is there something I'm missing ?
This was designed precisely for people like you, who work with a laptop and need a small high-quality playback device that would accommodate a wide range of headphones. M50s work well with DACport. I use them on the airplane. They are comfy and lightweight.
