He said he liked them all, but they sounded pretty similar. The he heard my CKN70s and said they sounded amazing. He kept saying how clear they were. And this is a guy who isn't an audiophile even the slightest. Anyway, he uses small tips and after he was done I decided to attempt to take them off when this happened:

 

 

 

I just glued it back together and I'm letting them sit for a bit. I'm not gonna lie, I freaked out a little bit when it happened.

 

Wow. Bummer. You might as well throw them out. I feel a bit sorry for you though. Do they still work? If so, I'll take them off your hands for $40. Done? I've been hearing too much about these stupid 70s, so this will abate my curiouslty biggrin.gif

I glued it back together and they sound as awesome as ever. It does not look as perfect as I wanted it (I'm a little OCD), but it sounds fine. I'm going to to tell you why you need to dish out the money for these superb CKN70s with two simple words: BUY THEM. And one simple emoticon: :O Alright maybe another cool.gif.

 

I hope you are a dis-believer in burn in. Or any burn in process that takes hundreds of hours, because you will become a believer after owning a pair of these.

So, I've decided I want a portable amp to pair with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I was going to get the E11 originally, but I was waiting for the E12 to be released. Now that it has and I've read some reviews I'm considering getting one or the other. Should I start with the E11? Or should I just go big and get the E12? I love the listening while charging feature by the way.

 

I would be using it with the CKN70s, S500s, and the MH1Cs [amazing when amped or through a DAC (ELE is fantastic.)] I will be purchasing the WS99s as well, and maybe the AD900X/the Sonys with a similar sound signature. I want a durable amp that can take a fall, I listen to metal, dubstep, and alternative/rock primarily.

IMHO for those headphones E6 will do just fine. normal_smile%20.gif

E11 is excellent.

Hmm do either of those have a listen whole charging feature? Also about how long does each on last off of a single charge? And are they neutral or a little biased?

I'm not familiar with the E6. The E11 lasts about 8 hours and can NOT be used while charging. The E12 lasts about 10 hours and CAN be used while charging. You should also look into the C&C BH ($99) which last about 80 hours (yes, you read that right) and CAN be used while charging.

for 100, I'd rather get e07. multiple uses. and you get bass and treble boost.

I read that comparison thread between the E12 and the C&C which lead me to believe I would like the E12 better.

I don't have the C&C yet, but my guess at this point is that I will like the E12 more with the AD900X's, and the C&C better with my WS99's. We'll see. As far as portability is concerned, I'm pretty sure I'll be using either the E11 or the C&C over the E12 due to their more diminutive size.

E6 battery last around 10 hours and can be used while charging. It is neutral and transparent and most importantly is smallbigsmile_face.gif

So which is better: the Yamaha YER-500BL or Yamaha EPH-50BL?

Since it's cheap I might just go for that one as a starter amp. Thanks dude :)

post #8594 of 32896

I've heard people say that the CKN70s are just as good without an amp. Anyone who has an ELE needs to plug their CKN70s into it. Wow!

It might be worthwhile for you to do some "Fiio E6 versus E11" googling. So far from what I have been reading, the E11 might be the better choice. Btw, you can find them for sale for between $40 and $50 in the for sale section.
