But still given that an E5 is almost as expensive, I'd recommend he buy new headphones in order to get better sound. A fiio is just going to give him 3dB of bass boost and some extra volume he probably doesn't really need.

Look, I do agree with you that for his $50 budget he could most likely have found different headphones that sounded better than the 201's. I spent $69 (a little more, but worth it) and jumped into a whole new level of sound quality.

But really, all I did was answer his question for him, and for less money than he was willing to spend. So is that really bad advice?
