Yeah I bought my e10k a year ago on eBay for 55new (they were on sale). The drive my beyerdynamic dt 990 pro's I use for gaming. I like it, but as hyde said, this is not a dac/amp, just an amp. So it wouldn't be what I'd need anyways. Didn't read this before I asked the question lol. Thanks for the input.

Why don't you see if you can try out some high end IEMs. It's really difficult to get stuff sent to where I live but a local company has some Final F3100 on sale and i got them because they're so small you can sleep on them comfortably. Anyway it turns out that I enjoy them a lot more than my tin T2 or 1 more triple drivers. Both reviewed much better. Edit: Oh I don't mean any of my IEMs are high end only I enjoy the most expensive set the most and as much as my 58x

lol I don't know in general I like headphone better I find it's a bit cleaner and easier for me to maintain. With IEM and earbuds I'm always paranoid about having to wipe off the ear grease / ear wax after using it. So these days I'm just sticking to over ears headphones lol.

This is a very weak amp, My Schiit Magni Uber 2 puts out: 1.2W RMS per channel @ 32ohms, granted it's $149, but I'd save my money for something better.

48mw @ 300 ohm. Is this..... a joke? Class A but no power, no thanks.

Ok, seriously? A Magni 2 non-uber blows this thing away. If the $20 you'd save by buying this over a Magni 2 is a concern, just save a little bit, it's worth it.

With this amp you sacrifice efficiency for clean power. At this price point I don't think there's many if any, better amps outputing this power.

I’m temped too, would make a good “hard volume adjust” and faces towards front not side like laptop/laptop dock ports. And looks nice. But also i need to not impulse buy aaaaaaaaaa

Lol I read a review somewhere I think they say this emphasize mid and bass more, treble become non existent after 10khz. Otherwise it's nice sounding but pair better with bright headphones (since it shave off treble). Drawback is since it shave off after 10khz so there is literally no "air" so soundstage is poor apparently. But this is only based off 1 review since it's so hard to find info on this amp. The reviewer also feel like while Atom sounds "digital" this amp sounds "analogue". He feel like this is probably what old school amp sounds like.

And is that a 2.5mm balanced-out under the quarter-inch jack? The description says, "Please note that the balanced output port and unbalanced output port cannot be used at the same time."
