I have the FiiO e7 desktop amp too, and it's great except for one major problem: with two inputs going in through a Y-connector stero hub, when one plays a sound, it drops the volume of the combined audio for both. (Not really the amp's fault, though)



Does anyone make a powered 3.5mm stereo hub that'll keep the same volume level no matter how many lines are connected?

Not just slightly hard to drive especially for the GS3 and open back, but also like I stated it is too big lol and looks weird in public, also slightly heavy, and the leather band ruins my hairstyle especially if I have it spiky (band nubs digging into my head is not really an issue for me as my hair is very thick...)

I just grabbed a pair of the MIE2's with the mic and earfins and they fit and sound excellent. Also the mic works which is what I need!

I find them ultra-comfortable, and nothing about my hair style deserves preserving, so neither of those are bothers for me. I will readily admit that it is not normal to feel comfortable wearing full-size cans in public though, even though I do

Main issue for me is actually the sound leakage for on the go use (since the hard-to-drive bit I can take care of with the PICO).

Bought a pair of these a while back from some opinions read elsewhere and have been very pleased. Great bang for your buck.

The FIX earbuds by Skullcandy, they're like $67.99 but they're the best headphones I've ever used. Excellent quality and durability. I lost mine but found them when it was raining in a puddle. Let em dry out and they still sounded better than the $140.00 Bose buds did. They also are designed to stay in your ear.
