I will suggest you set the volume in S3 to 13 or 14

As you are the good/legit source to ask about E11.....Can it drive sennheiser HD600(300 ohm) with ease? or should I buy E12(Mont Blanc) amp?

OR

E07K/E17 will be a better choice than E11/E12? pls advice.

@ExpatinJapan - it's Nokia's BL-5B Lithium battery easily available everywhere...

 

cheapest in Australia...link below.

So,correct me if I'm wrong, but I won't see any SQ improvement if I add the FiiO E11 to an iPhone 5 with IEMs like Etymotic, Astrotec, Vsonic, HiFiMan...

You will see the SQ changed but not vast....as stated already in my earlier comment above. it's a nice addition in between but not a must, unless it's a power-hungry headgear. like I said before it's all our personal choice to try and find out ourselves nothing wrong. get addicted :-)  btw u have the E11 now?

oh ok...then ur immediate purchase is an IEM, not an AMP. pretty decent budget to invest on an better IEM.

:D

On basis of quality to price ratio, would the E11 be a much better buy than the E6. For a difference of about 20-30$ would it be a better investment to get an E11. 

Also anyone using this with WS99, how well does the AMP work?

post #1088 of 1237

im pairing this with vsonic gr07 and mee m6... is this a good choice for those iems?

just received my fiio e11 in the mail today. using with my v-moda m80 primarily and my god...i didn't realize my v-modas could sound so smooth. the increased bass response is heavily appreciated too. i'm about to see how my blox sounds with them and then see if my Magnum's are effected by the lil' guy. best 50 bucks I've spent in a minute

A nice investment, after two years of heavy use mine work fine.

I've been listening to mine nonstop for the past twenty-four hours and they've absolutely blown me away. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase. i wonder if anyone else here is using them with their vmoda m80's....and what their thought on the e11's are...

I've used mine with multiple HP's Grado SR80, Senns 595 and PX100, and B&W P5

I'm currently using a configuration of X-Fi Titanium (non-HD) Fatal1ty --> Fiio E11 --> Sennheiser HD-598. I'm looking for a more desktop solution without charging (but at a cost efficient route). I'm thinking of upgrading to either the SB-Z and return the E11, or upgrading the amp to Schiit Magni. Which of the 3 configurations would offer better SQ, or would it be all pretty much similar? BTW, the HD598's are only 50ohm headphones so should be easy to drive.

 

1. X-Fi Titanium (non-HD) Fatal1ty --> Fiio E11 --> Sennheiser HD-598

2. Sound Blaster Z --> (no additional external amp) --> Sennheiser HD-598

3. X-Fi Titanium (non-HD) Fatal1ty --> Schiit Magni --> Sennheiser HD-598

Hey guys, Im looking to get the fiio e11, but I own the monster turbine gold, and the headphones are warm, and i heard the fiio e11 had a warm sound signature. Would this affect my headphones and make them sound more warm or perhaps dark? Or should i comsider another amp
