    I'm looking to replace a small cheap headphone amp ( runs on 2x AAA batts ) I purchased from Maplin a few years ago to run in the car and on a pair of headphones

    used
    On an apple Touch and a Nano
    On Car Stereo via the Aux input - current amp works fine
    in the car I also have a USB charger

    Sennheiser PXC-450 Noise reduction headphones
    Bass boast maybe useful - when on noise reduction loses a bit of bass

    I have been looking at the Fiio E range and yep, a little confused

    I would like to use while charging - I know some do - But if theres a big advantage for the modek that does not charge than happy to put up with that

    I like the extended battery life 80hrs mentioned on one of the models

    I will also purchase the ipod cable, as this is mentioned in a few reviews as improving quality

    so what do i know
    I'm tempted by the
    E7 - £50
    Batt life 80 hrs ,
    no noise hiss,
    can NOT be used while charging - Not correct , found it can be used
    150mW 16ohm

    E6 - much cheaper £20 -
    still no noise hiss,
    can be used while charging
    battery life 10hrs -
    poor build quality compared to F5 - but F5 has hiss

    E11 Approx £40
    can NOT be used while charging
    battery life 10hrs
    battery that is easily replaceable
    300mW - 16ohm - so is this really twice the power of the E7

    E10
    now very confused

    so a little confused on what will work best

    Do not want for PC sound - just the headphones - May us on the laptop after all - not sure now

    I'm actually now considering the E7 with an L7 Dock and the Ipod Cable

    any help will help - thanks
    also any alternative suggestions
