When it comes to Grado, I generally prefer tube amp for the added warmness.E11 is decent with Grado but nothing spectacular, since most Grado really are easy to drive.

Just bought a gently used E11 from a forum member, waiting for it to arrive, so I will post results with the ER-4P when it arrives. 

 

I've been using the SoundMagic A10 for about a month with the ER-4P, and the A10 is more "musical" sounding with a good bass boost, but that's all it has.  But after the A10 started developing a short in the HO jack, causing a mono sound, so I sent it back to MP4 Nation for repair -- will likely sell the new unit they return to me and keep the E11.

Is it worth getting one of these if you own the Audio Technicia ATH M50s??

Hi ClieOS, 

 

Just a quick thought, what about adhering ERS paper between the amp and the cellphone? Or, will the headphone's cable still "grab" interference (RF/EMI) out of the air?

When I turned Aiprlane mode on for the iPhone4, the interference went away. Obviously this is isn't something I want to do all the time. I'm thinking some sort of RF/EMI shielding sheet to put in between my iPhone and E11? Probably inside the iPhone's or E11's case?


I noticed interference when using my iPod Touch with the E11 - so it isn't just the iPhone.  I was listening to Spotify, so putting the iPod into airplane mode wasn't an option.  I seemed to notice this only when I was using the supplied band to hold the amp and iPod together.  If I laid the amp and iPod side-by-side, there didn't seem to be any interference.  The noise I heard sounded like digital chirps and hash noise.  It would come in bursts and was quite noticable.

 

For my use case, it's not too big of a deal, but I'm interested to see if anybody comes up with a solution.

just got a Fiio L3 to use with my Iphone 4 and a different amp. i am noticing this same interference. any way to eliminate this? i already lined the inside of my amp's case with some aluminum foil tape and it still does it.

I think the strong GSM signal will still get absorbed by the LOD's cable. Headphone cable might absorb some, but it shouldn't affect the amp as much as the LOD cable or the amp itself. Also, ERS paper might reduce the reception of the phone, which is not that great to begin with (in the case of iPhone).

Anyone ever tried e11 on ATH M50?

post #703 of 1237

i tried them on for a short while...with my HO of sony a728~~~sounds A LOT better than direct headphone out,better highs details and extensions....the bass turns from muddy DUMP to very clear cut,full bodied TUMP  *not the uncontrol THUMPpppppp but TUMP*   ,if you are no basshead you can leave the bass boost function to 0 but set it to 2 when you want to throw your sane mind out of the window and do nothing else but Bang your head ...these are the good

 

the bads are when you pair studio headphones (im using shure srh440 XD ) with an amp and a sony DAP, you can hear the background hiss even when the song is playing~it is annoyingly annoying. What's more, amp like fiio e11 amplify the signal only,thus the vocals that M50 will not sounds better compared to the improvement on bass and the highs ...these are my 2 cents

Do I need an E11 and their L9 line out dock?  I use a classic iPod with Koss KSC75s mostly.  When I use an IEM I use Shure SCL4.  I prefer the KSC75 though as in ear bother me.  Is the E11 a waste on money since I'll be pairing it with such an inexpensive headphone?

Mine hisses a LOT, even with no EQ. On EQ1 & 2 there is so much hiss it overpowers the music. With no EQ, the music covers it up but during slower songs it's noticeable.
