Hello, I am going to be purchasing the S4s, and I get to choose which Fiio amp comes with it. Which one should I get? I will be using it with my iPod Touch 2G. I listen to most types of music except electronica/dance/techno.
I suppose it could be. I have an E1 and I found the in-line controls to be quite inconvenient as they are always getting pressed accidentally. The cable is also way too long, and it uses up the iPod's battery unlike the E5.
An L1 costs <$10 so if you don't mind the extra money I would take that option.
Huh. Okay. Well I'm pretty much sold for the E1 but one last question... will this E1 actually make a difference in SQ with my S4s? I just found the S4s for 20$ cheaper on jr.com, so now I guess I'm pretty much buying this amp instead of getting it in a deal.
I just received my E1 today, and I notice a fair improvement with it and my IE8s, much to my surprise.
I had an E3 in the past and I didn't like it at all. I thought I would try the E1 since I hear it's much better and I kind of need tactile buttons. I'm happy to say that with my listening so far, I don't regret the purchase at all and I like it quite a bit (except for the length of the cable; it's way too long). Be careful that if you have a case, the E1 may not sit in all the way. I'm gonna have to do some slight modding to my case sometime in the near future.
