    Hi - I have iPhone 4 and igrado & ultimate ears superfi 5vi phones. Whilst they sound very good would a headphone amp make much difference. Are the cheaper portable headphone amps worth considering eg FiiO E1 or FiiO E5. Thanks

    The excellent Fiio E1 will give you a remote, a better volume control, better sound (as the line level signal from the bottom dock is better quality than the 3.5mm socket) and more headroom because of the amp.

    Hope this helps!:)
