i have spent about 1 hour with these playing from my samsung galacy s7 with spotify and my og fiio x1.. i enjoy the sound but even on the fiio it is much too quiet even at full volume.. this is my first pair of sennheisers i assume this means i need an amp ? anyone have any sugguesstions for a good budget portable pocket amp ?

I am running these straight from my OnePlus 5 with no issues... have you tried running them straight from the jack?

I'm just a little confused since the phone should be able to power the headphones alone, without the Fiio. Maybe try them with a computer to make sure it's not a headphone issue?

you can power them with a phone, they wont get screaming loud though without an amp. Also listening environment is an issue, quiet interior setting with a phone is loud enough to enjoy IMO. i probably listen to them at about 80% volume from my Pixel 2 XL and i like my music loud generally. IMO one of the biggest perks of these cans are the portability, my other set is completely unusable on phones or tablets.

The Fiio X1 works fine with them.. but some songs are a bit too quiet for my liking.. is it not worth it to get a portable amp for them? maybe something like the Fiio A3 or Fiio Q Mark II? or any other sugguestions..

I'd look into the DACport lineup. You just missed the DACportable drop that was on here a few weeks ago but I use the plain DACport HD just fine with my phone. Not sure about other mobile powerhouse amps but I quite like mine.

My S7 Edge drives these headphones pretty loudly.
