"So, by all means, give the FiiO E3 a try if you want to add some higher quality bass to your portable setup, cut down on some predominant treble, or want to drive some higher impedance phones with a bit more impact. It might not work with every headphone out there and it might add some background hiss to some phones - but at $8.50 it's definitely worth a try. Maybe you find some good synergy. I know I did. The FiiO is a fun toy that added some new excitement to my uber-portable workout rig and I sure intend to keep the amp with me on the go."
To me, carrying around a second component seems to kind of defeat the purpose of a portable player. Plus the skeptic in me has to be suspicious of a product that only costs $8.50, including free shipping anywhere in the world. Otherwise, Martin over at anythingbutipod has tried this out and seems to like it, so if your game, give it a shot, worst case your not out much.
