Just ordered the DT990 pro 250 ohms, and was wondering if this or the Fiio E6 would be better budget option while using on my desktop. Any input would be appreciated!

I have the FiiO E6 and is not my favorite amp..the Fiio E12 Montblanc is a more powerful AMP with a great sound and a soundstage selector switch.

I agree with Meher. You need more power/quality. Look at the Schiit Magni 2 for $99. I know it is more money but you will be glad you did it. I have the Asgard 2 with these phones and the sound is glorious.

Unfortunately my budget at this time does not allow for that. I made an impulse buy to upgrade from HD518's to the DT990's because they were only $120 on Adorama. I'm not looking to spend as much on an amp as I did on the headphones, at this time. I will eventually upgrade the setup, but for now I have to stay under $50 so I have to decide between this and the FiioE6.
Otherwise, I would just be stuck with the 518's and no amp, so I'd assume the DT990s and a budget amp will be an upgrade right now.

I understand completely. I am 100% disabled so I know about the "money squeeze". I personally would go for this amp over the FIIO.
