Do i need an amp?: Shure E2C

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys , i have shure e2c in ear headphones and i was wondering if an amp would provide a signifigant amount of sound quality improvement when connected to my ipod or computer?

I would like to be able to use these headphones to their maximum potential and i wasnt sure if a portable amp would work well or not.

Any input would be apreciated

I asked the same question on Head-Fi yesterday about my E4c, and the answer was basically get better IEM if you want to improve sound quality drastically. Shure SE530 umamped will sound better than the E4c or E2c amped on an iPod.

you hardly notice an improvement, i mean barely.
get better IEM's if you wanna amp them.
