    All, I recently bought AE2i and use it on the move with iPhone playing FLAC files. I am happy with the sound at the mo. but was wondering if anyone has used a Portable DAC with this headphone and what do they recommend. Yes I admit that on here I once said I'll never go chasing better sound quality, but I was wrong and here I am looking to see if it could be better.

    You'd probably benefit more from using a Line Out Dock cable, into a headphone amp.

    You will notice a fair increase in fidelity when you use one of those.

    That's a good point! You have to spend quite a lot for an Apple compatible portable DAC/Amp. You will notice improved sound from a line out doc cable and a decent amp. FiiO have a range of affordable and great quality amps - well worth a look at.
