Default Good amp for the P3?

Well I've decided it is time to step up in the world and look for a headphone amp for my P3. What are some inexpensive suggestions?

With the phones in your sig I don't think you'd benefit from an amp.

dfkt is right, unless you are planning to upgrade your phones, don't bother. The Sony and Panasonic 'phones you have are both very efficient, and are even powered well by a Clip, so your P3 (and my Q2) have more than enough power for them. I used to have those Sony's, and I still have the Panasonics, and they certainly don't need an amp. I couldn't say about your IEM's though.

Ah, OK. Thanks.
The IEMs perform about as well as the Panasonics do, as far as I can tell. So it shouldn't be a problem at all.
