Tried it with several iems at the time, it had some audible noise and the amping wasn't much better than my old sansa player

Alternative: Don't buy an amp in this price range.
The extra $20 you'd save should have gone towards a slightly better pair of headphones. If your cans are high-impedance, you should have anticipated getting a decent amp in the first place, as this wouldn't be enough to drive them anyway.
I own this amp, and it has a noticeable noise floor with my IEMs and doesn't do much for my Grados nor my VISO HP50s. I had the chance to try out a friend's E10 and I have to say it'd be worth saving up for, since you'd want a DAC anyways if you're playing music from a smartphone.
If you really need the volume boost and don't mind some hissing or are into extra bass, this amp might be tolerable to the average listener.
