You can find them on eBay.

Or why not upgrade to silver plated copper.

thanks for the help!

 

is silver worth it though? I'm only going to use the headphone out from my sansa clip+

 

EDIT: the silver ones were cheaper for me anyway, I ordered them :)

Great thread
post #1100 of 1194

mods please delete this thread if you feel i am double posting, because I am not sure which thread is more active (dead)

 

my post from E6 thread:

 

Dear head-fi expierts,

 

I am new to the head-fi scene, and currently have following IEMs/cans: MEElectronics M6, M9, and also Monoprice 8323 and 8320

 

These are really amazing bang for the buck IEMs/cans that I picked up based on the reviews on this forum, so thanks!

 

Now I started to commute more, and noticed the bass in these IEMs/cans get drawn out during car rides, and so I am looking for a portable amp to bring out some of that drawn out bass during my commute.

 

Based on my IEMs/cans selection, my question is: will a Fiio E6 be good enough for me, or will I benefit from a Fiio E11 more?

 

any input is appreciated, TIA

 

M

Will the Fiio E11 drive my Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO 250 ohm's without any problems? I read on Fiio website and they recommend not to use higher than 150 ohms, but people say they still work. Any advice?

I keep hearing varied opinions on whether or not I should get a amp for my V MODA Crossfade LPs. Would this work? Would I be getting anything out of it? Because my 5th gen iPod can make them plenty loud. I would be using a L9 LOD btw.

They will work. You won't be driving them to their full potential but I frequently use my 250ohm beyers with the E11

I used to have the LPs and I have the E11. To me amping is about detail, not volume. The pairing was nice at the time. The LPs are low impedance which means they are easy to drive and sensitive so amping them won't require cranking the knob and you get more detail. The higher output impedance of the amp the better suited it is to drive lower ohm headphones. I also liked the E5 and E6 with them plus they're half the price

Best,

in my opinions , Fiio E11 is a very good portable amplifier at this price range. Espeacially for those who really want to know what a headphone amplifier is and what it can do to the sound. Portability : perfect, Size : perfect, Removable Battery : perfect. About the sound.... I tell you a very funny story! In Vietnam, people who want to buy E11 also own a very bass-sounding headphone or in-ear but they aren't satisfied and that's the reason why E11 can take place ( maybe because of 2 lv of bass boot ) :D

So if the E11 can't drive the dt 990 pro 250 ohms, how about the E12? I heard they can drive up to 300 ohms. Are there any difference between the two?

E12 will be the best candidate for you if you can stretch ur budget compsred to E11. E11 too an excellent amp fot its size and features but E12 is more powerful and neutral. Both can drivr my senny hd600 but i prefer E12 more to E11........

With neutral, do you mean not as bassy as the E11 and better mids? How about sub bas comparison between them? I heard the E12 only boosts the sub bas with the equalizer.

what is the best way to connect an iPhone 5 to this portable amp? lighting to 30pin connector to 30pin to 3.5mm? 

 

Thank you for the help in advance!

in ClieOS's Apple Nano 7G review

http://www.head-fi.org/t/635800/impression-apple-nano-7g-lightning-to-30pin-adapter

 

it seems that headphone out vs lightning to 30pin, 30pin to 3.5mm has similar SQ on the Nano 7G, so I am assuming this would be the case for other lightning enabled iDevices as well?

 

I am using headphone out on my iphone 5S and am happy with the result =)

post #1110 of 1194

I am liking my E11 so far, tho my IEMs and headphone don't need any amplification, thus I am using the E11 simply as a bass booster.

 

however, one issue I noticed is E11's hissing on the phones I have (low impedance and high sensitivity).  Even on E11's low power, low gain and no bass boost settings, hissing is low yet noticeable by me, and upping any of the power/gain/bass boost settings will result in increased hissing, which during quieter moments of songs kinda bothers me.

 

my observation is similar to ClieOS's description on E11's hissing on the first post, and my question to fellow E11 owners is: do you notice this when you first use the E11, and do you eventually get used to it?
