FiiO E6 - story of the tiny amp continues... (w/ review on 1st page) - Page 10

post #136 of 543

Huh, so if http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E6-Headphone-Amplifier-Micca/dp/B005JT8OT6/ref=sr_1_9?s=electronics and http://www.amazon.com/Fiio-FE6-2118-E6-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B005HJWWW8

 

feature the same amp, why does the second link cost more if it doesn't include the Micca Y cable thing? Is the first link missing anything that the second link includes?

I would buy from Micca.  Aren't they are an official retailer for Fiio products?  See their website here - http://www.miccastore.com/index.php

I've also got to say that the E6 seems so so light, is well made and feels pretty bomb proof for the material - The clip is well and truly unbreakable (to a certain extent) - The only downfall I can pick from this from the price is the fact it's a fingerprint magnet! biggrin.gif

 

Edit : I've also used it for over 5 hours now straight out the box, and it's still running strong powering my RE-262's!

 



I've had the E5 before but I never really carried it out as I couldn't tell too much of a difference between the sounds, I did notice it was improved but only ever so slightly and not worth me carrying it around.

I've heard the SRH840 cushions help with improving the sound of the SRH440 so I'll probably go for that if I can get ahold of it in UK (waiting for Shure to reply).

I had the iPhone 4 before I gave it to the Mrs, and while it is good on its own, the E5 did add to it - which made it worthwhile for me - I don't use my Blackberry as a source really but the E6 is a good addition, and £17 for it is tuppence really redface.gif

 

And yes, the 840 pads do help the 440's a lot indeed, that's the first thing I did to mine when I got them, then I added a Sennheiser headband for comfort (my dad has them now) -

You can get the pads from here - http://www.juno.co.uk/products/shure-srh840-replacement-ear-cushions/396497-01/?utm_source=google_uk&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=Google%2BShopping

 

My Modded 440's from like last year : redface.gif - You can slightly see the headband velcroed on

For under $100 is there anything better than the E6 if you are pairing with an RE262? I was thinking the E11 was the next logical upgrade, but I'm not sure if it's darker signature is a good fit for the RE262.

Hi,

 

Nothing is missing from that listing, as you will receive the full retail E6 package plus the Y cable.

The E11 is what I'm using mostly with the 262's - The E6 works with the J3 but still struggles a bit when you compare it to the E11- I use the E11 on high gain, high power, bass setting 1 - Works wonders redface.gif

Is this e6 even better than the cmoyBB for driving iems or low impedance headphones like something upto 150 ohms?

I bought one. 28 dollars including shipping is cheap.

post #145 of 543

Could anyone tell me how this would pair up with the Vsonic GR07? I'm contemplating holding out for the ZO V2, but the price of the E6 is quite appealing.

GR07 doesn't need amping, but in case you still want to know - they pair pretty well together.

Thanks

would the e6 be a good match with my clip+ and hd25?

Not really, hd25 is good stuff so you should pair it with more good stuff like the E11 or something. Imo e6 bottlenecks the hd25's potential.

IMO the HD 25 sound good even unamped. I used to carry around the mini3 and i felt it sounded a bit better but I ended up selling the mini3 anyways. The size of the e6 is just so appealing for its portability. A lot less obtrusive than the mini3 or any other cmoys.
