Head Phone Amp

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm looking to dive into the world of headphone amps on the cheaper side at first.
My budget is under $100 and I don't really mind and specific type and I need some advice on what I should be considering. I've looked at Fiio's offerings and have been lurking on Head-Fi trying to find a good amp. I only need three things in order of importance.

1. Portability
2. Mic pass through? Four pin headphone with mic. (not to amp the mic)
3. Battery Life.

I am trying to track down a MiniBox-D or something near the size. More modern would be a HeadStage Arrow size but is far past my budget.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to stay here for info, but if you guys think I need to move on over to Head-Fi I can repost there.

Thanks

Under $100, the Fiio's are good deals. The iBasso D-zero is also near your price range; I don't know much about it but general consensus around iBasso is pretty good. Also, you are very unlikely to find anything with a mic pass-through.
