Will I need an amp for these? I'll be using them off a Galaxy S7 edge.
Ok great, I thought I didn't need an amp, then rereading the comments about using dragonfly amps scared me.
Sound better with a dedicated amp/dac though.
you will need a discrete dac and amp if you want to go that far
if you are referencing to power - i have two sets of Nobles (Noble 5 and Django) that i use with my iPhone and Nexus 5X. both devices can drive the IEMs to unhealthy and uncomfortable decibel levels with no sweat
if you are referencing to "sounds better with an amp" - there's a ton of material on head-fi to read through and draw your own conclusions
side note - as far as i have been aware of Noble, their approach have seemed mobile friendly without the need for added amps / DACs etc. i recall some interviews that talks about co-founder just uses his iPhone as his main device with no amps / DACs.
