Also, which LOD should I pair with it for my iPod Touch 4G?

 

Thanks.

 

Does anyone know? Is there a soundcard for my PC I can get that will also drive the headphones better than the onboard sound?

Can anyone comment if the E6 introduces any more hiss than an iPhone/iPod on its own?
post #349 of 504

I don't notice any hiss from my E06 using the Sansa Clip+, an iPad2 and two different laptops.

No hiss from Ipad2, Itouch 4, Iphone 4gs. Good gadget not quite as loud and lively as CMOY amp.

My experience with the E6 is that it makes inexpensive headphones (earbuds) and my IEMs sound slightly better, and more expensive headphones (ATH-M50s, D5000s) sound slightly worse.

Listening with my Shure SE315 directly from my iPhone has hiss, but using the Fiio E6 and Fiio L9 LOD eliminates the hiss.

No really sure how much 85% is. The maximum gain of E6 is close to 8dB.

85%= when I place mobile speaker up on my ear than I able to listen music from my damaged ear...

so u can determine how much amplification iI need..

That really doesn't tell how much gain you will need. It will be useful if you know that in dB. By going with the NRR standard, a 85% volume reduction is probably around -26dB or so. If that that's the case, you will need much more gain than E6 can provide. In fact, I don't know any headphone amp with that much gain.

Sorry, don't really know how to read an audiogram, Beside, connecting two amps together doesn't give you twice the power or gain. At some point the 2nd amp will reach its max voltage output and clip the signal (generating noise instead of music).

If I am pairing E6 to an iPod's line-out - no, I can't listen to it at that volume, not even for 2 second.
