Is a headphone amp a necessity in order to get decent volume and sound quality with these new cans?

    I use my L1 with my iPhone 4, as well as my iPod Classic (7th generation), and I find the volume level very good without using a headphone amp and working in a somewhat loud backround noise environment. However, that being said, an outboard amplifier really makes these cans sing! At home, I use my L1's with my Simpl A1 amp and iPhone/iPod Classic, and find the soundstage open and airy, and the volume level is tremendous! And the Bass is awesome as well!
