Best headphone amp under $400


Hi all, what's the best headphone amp under $400 for B&W PX7? source is tidal (uncompressed) audio streaming. would like something portable. Audioquest cobalt/dragon seem to have good reviews but I am not familiar (had some cables made by them, they were good)

thanks

Are you looking for just an amp an an amp/DAC?  I’m using an AQ Dragonfly Red from my iPhone to my HiFiMan HE400S and it works very well, but it’s just barely enough amp to get the job done.  If you can do with something a bit larger (but still portable) I’d recommend looking at the xDuoo XD-05 Plus as well.  Best of luck. 
I am looking for AMP + DAC in one package. I have read very good reviews of the AQ dragonfly. was looking at cobalt. DO you mean barely enough for high impedance headphones or just any headphone ?
thanks  
My headphones are around 30 Ohms and 100dB. 
My Dragonfly Red is good enough from my droid phone to Tin hifi T4 iems  but connect to hifiman he-4xx and it runs out of steam well before I do.
Slightly over your budget, but you should consider Chord Mojo. It's not ultra portable, as in you can't put it in your pocket and go out for a run, but certainly something you can take it with you on trips. You might even find a used one for under $400.
thanks all ended up with dragon fly cobalt, sounds really good. had seen mojo pretty nice too but a bit too large (want to fit in a pocket without feeling it!)


There is no 'best'. Period.

Only your ears will tell you what is 'best'.... for you.

Some people like opamp based amps, some like R2R ladder based ones, while some prefer an all-discrete based one.

Some people swear by tubes while others prefer solid-state.

The best headphone amp is the one YOU like the best at the price you want to spend.
