Even on the original V1 and V2 Clip, V2 e200 and Fuse players. This is because the Clip’s onboard DAC has a very low noise floor, low output impedance with very little distortion (as seen on graphs), even at high volumes. This is easily noticed with overly sensitive balanced armature IEMs as comparing to other DAPs where you can possibly hear a hissing system noise and need a portable amp to reduce or eliminate it.
