Considering this unit for my first DAC/amp but not liking the fact that many say they don't pair well with Grado's

You could always tame the treble with it.

Who says that it doesn't pair well? It's a neutral amp when no EQ settings are changed, and bass can be added or subtracted as well as treble. It should be a very versatile amp.

Why not?

Some have said it makes them even brighter, some have said its darker sounding - can't get a straight consensus on it. I'm sure the only solution would be to try it myself but I'd rather just pay less and go with the cmoyBB than audition something more expensive, but the E17 does seem a great value in itself.

treble reduction = instant darkness.

So its more to do with the settings the user chooses on the E17?

Not fully, but the E17 is versatile enough to lessen the impact on headphones it wouldnt pair up with perfectly with the EQ adjusments. It's not a perfect fix, but it's very helpful.

Does the E17 DAC work with HTC Sensation XL?  and should i buy an OTG cable?

post #4798 of 6558

so is this thing considerably better than an E10 to justify its price, or should a newbie like me just go for an E10?

 

mainly plan to use it with my laptop, so do i even need a dac/amp combo, or can i just get an amp?

Laptops tend to have bad DACs, so...

Laptops. Not Mac's
