I think they will coexist for a short while. But I believe the long term plan is for E6 to replace E5 since they two are sharing the same price bucket.

You'll see bigger upgrade if you get a better IEM. There are quite a few better IEM than S4 on the same price, so save your money for now and come back when you are ready to upgrade your S4.

just a thought...

The only difference between the Westone E6 and FiiO E6 is on the logo / marking, I believe.

I've been looking for a decent amp to pair with a RE262. How does the E6 synergize with it? Do you recommend anything else for the RE262? I was also thinking about the ibasso T3.

E6 is okay with RE262. I won't call it great. T3 is of course better in all regard. Depends on how much you are willing to spend however - you can get the LEAR FSM-01 from eBay for $150. It is a seriously good sounding amp but has its short coming. I will be reviewing it in a few weeks if you can wait. It you think $150 is too much, T3 will be my next recommendation.

Since the E6 is a neutral amp, what kind of improvement/change would it have on the warm-mid sounding Shure SE215?

Purely on headphone-out (in this case, from Sansa Fuze), you will notice tighter bass control, more extensions / less mid focus. If you are using line-out (that is better than the headphone-out, which in this case is teh same Fuze with a custom LOD), the improvement will be more apparent. However, SE215 isn't a particularly hard to drive IEM, so don't expect night and day difference.

I saw someone were worry about the clip is not so stable, below is some photos of how the clips work and I think it is already very strong, unless you try to destroy it.

BTW, the Clip is made by Polycarbonate, someone must know well about it, it is different with normal plastic, usually call ABS, PC is 3 - 4 times expensive than abs.

i wonder why westone is opting to bundle the E6 with iems that are already easy to drive.

post #75 of 543

Perhaps because they believe it makes their iem sound better than straight out of an ipod?
