Excellent cheap amplifier – FiiO E5 3.5mm Earphone Volume Booster Power Amplifier (Black) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Extremely competitive price for what you get
Excellent for bass anemic headphones
Rechargeable, so you don't have to keep buying batteries.
Volume controls and power button
Fairly small
Very light
Cons:
Can't compete with $100+ amps
The build quality is a little iffy, for instance the power light leaks out through different holes in the product. The bass EQ switch is flimsy.
Not as small as you think. It looks like an iPod Shuffle, but it's about 1.5x the size of the iPod Shuffle.
Other:
Bottomline:
Great amplifier for an astounding price. It obviously won't compare with higher-end amps, but they also cost at least 5x as much.
