The E10k on high gain is fine for 250ohm headphones, I would guess the volume would be at mid or a bit past.

iFi Zen DAC is also a good one but a bit more cost.

I have the FX Audio one and there is a bit of a low level noise on it, it's not a silent when there is no signal as higher end devices. Still good audio and drives headphones, and for me the main point aside from the cost was the line out that I can run to my powered speakers.

Not really planning on using speakers in the future. Can't afford the iFi Zen.
Whats the deal with the low level noise?
i still can't decide between the E10K or FX Audio.

When the volume is turned down or there is no signal there is a bit of a hum to the headphones, that is the low level noise. It's not bad to have, quite a lot of devices have it, but some people want a perfectly low noise floor.
