Have Fiio E7/E9 combo with DT 880/600 ohms...and I love it...E9 has plenty of power...E7 is a god DAC...and DT880s are amazing Go for 600 ohm version though.
Definitely best bang for the buck!
Hope it helps!

I've heard some good things about the E7/E9 combo

I really like the DT880s too. like Komder said, try going for the 600 Ohm version. If not, at least the 250 Ohm ones.

Sounds like a really nice setup

I'm thinking DT880 250 Ohm and the E7. That way I have a portable amp for netbook, iphone, etc and not break the bank (college student) with the E9/E7.

EDIT: Or just get the 600 Ohm and E7 and get a E9 later when I have the money?

Head over to Head-fi. They have a nice thread that lists the sonic differences between the different Beyer models.

E7/E9 is a great combo and performs very well. A cheaper and fully integrated option that I recommend is: http://www.mav-audio.com/base/product/tube_magic_d1

Any reason you're going specifically for the 880? Quite a few phones in that price range to pick from.

The E7 alone might have some issues driving the 600 Ohm DT880s

Yea E7 and DT880s/6oo ohm wouldn't be enough...I mean it still wouldn't be bad...but to fully use it you would need a more powerful amp...this is where E9 comes into play So yea I would get E7 first [it's gonna do the job] and later on add E9...also DT 880s are a good choice...I love them naturally sounding and really comfortable...an in addition they are really comfortable.

Hope it helps!

I have a project studio and I want a closed / semi-closed studio headphone. My modded HD 555's don't work well for this option for me. I also have a pair of BX8a's going into a Behringer 1204USB. I was considering the m50. The reason I was thinking about E7/E9 is that I've actually tested the E9, but it was a present for a friend. I am curious about the Maverick D1.

I'm leaning in the direction of just investing in a Maverick D1 and new headphones later on in a few weeks.
