Default Headphone amp used with AYL Portable speaker?

Edit: After reading more about amps I realized the main reason I wanted one was to see what it does and that seems kinda silly when in most cases amps don't do anything and the money would be better invested in good headphones.

If you use a portable amp with a little speaker like that you'll blow the speaker out. Too much for such a small thing,...the FiiO will kill it/them. Especially since that tiny thing has a little amp built in.

Those are powered speakers so most likely you do not want to use an amp with them. What are you hoping to accomplish?

I was hoping for something to improve sound quality and hoping it would also extend or at least not shorten the battery life.

Ah no, you won't accomplish that. Better speakers might help with sound quality though.

If you could describe the price range and features you're looking for, and what sort of scenarios you'd be using the speaker in, that would be a lot easier to answer.
