    I just picked up the Xduoo XD-05 from Massdrop a month ago. I think you can find them on Amazon for $170 ... man was I impressed. I ran HD tracks from my Samsung phone to the XD-05 via the OTG cable (digital to the DAC then the headphone amp). Tested the setup out with my Sennheiser HD-650's and Grado SR-60's. Holy crap! Well worth the cost ...

    Damn, it's back up to $250 ... probably out of your price range. I think Massdrop ended up at under $170. I like Massdrop for this kind of stuff ... lots of new stuff popping up daily.

    I like FIIO since it is not very expensive. Makes music sound much crispier.
