Wow! I'll keep my HE-560s over any of those options. Just lowered price to $499 Amazon. They need serious juice, but Emotiva A-100 only $220-$240 + a decent DAC (DC-1, but less work fine really), and you should be incarcerated for theft of one phenomenal sounding setup. Seriously stellar sound & I've been through a lot of gear that cost a lot of $ I do also have the V-Moda, but I only use them while mowing the lawn. For mobile with decent sound quality, the M-100s are very sturdy and sound decent with damn good bass, but not so much sub-bass like HE-560s. I'd bet one could find better for the money though. $150 fostex monitor phones I'd bet a good bargain, but I'm only guessing. Not about STEALING HE-560 for $499 though. Can't urge you to grab THOSE enough. + plenty of power. I'm on the fence about idsd black, because I don't know that it's truly capable of making the HE-560s slam with full control and authority for portable. Not sure there's anything portable and powerful enough. E18 is entirely inadequate. DC-1 headphone amp same. HE-5!6!0!=$499. Just paid $640 refurbished. No contest. & some good Schiit or Emotiva A-100 wattage to achieve nirvana. Low bass extension pristine vocals instruments-everything. Get them without hesitation.
The iDSD Black Label would have no trouble driving HE-560s to their full potential. It can push over 1.5 watts into 64 Ohms, which is a higher impedance than the HE-560 is, and that would put you over 100dB. My
can drive HE-500s flawlessly, with power to spare. The whole "planars need watts and watts of power" is utter nonsense. Putting a few watts through a pair of HE-560s will not make it sound better, in fact, it would almost certainly destroy them, not to mention your ears.
