Cowon C2+ Fiio E11 vs Sansa Fuze LOD to Fiio E11

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello

i'm currently owning a Cowon C2 and a Fiio E11 which I plug into my ATH-M50,it sound quite good.

but i'm about to buy the BeyerDynamic T5p which is a more serious headphone and my question is if it worth buying Sansa Fuze + LOD cable and plug it to my Fiio E11 OR just use "Double Amping" on my C2.

 

Thank You Very Much.

I never had a C2, or an LOD for  Fuze, so I have no idea which would be better.....sorry!

Probably omerbu1 you have already solved your doubt long time ago... right?

 

Actually, I wonder  Cowon C2 + Fiio E11 (Cost ~ $250USD) --> output to BeyerDynamic T5p (Cost ~ > $1200+ USD),

The C2 + E11 is surely and truly enjoyable to listen ( I have the same set ),

 

But compared to my Colorfly C4  or  Philips SACD player --> Nuforce HDP    With Shure SRH1840.

Immediately, I feel that every aspect of the audio quality / performance has ~ 50%+ difference.

Potential of SRH 1840 is thus revealed much more certainly.

 

 

Basically, I don't think E11 is powerful enough, and C2's limit is revealed totally...thought both are good stuff of high C/P ration

I've actually replaced my C2 with iPod Classic 160GB, and bought a Beyerdnamic T70p instead of the T5p.

 

So my actually setup now is: iPod Classic 160GB----->Fiio L9---->Fiio E11------>Beyerdynamic T70p

 

but thanks for the replay.

You are welcome, I also replaced my Cowon C2 recently.

 

because the C2 --> every 1.5 weeks or so, it shows "Failed to load source" error.

I used the 1.17 firmware and such error happened for more than 10 times since I bought it.

 

Dun wanna waste time on keep Flashing the Firmware again and again...What a Bummer when I take out the C2 while commuting and I cannot play music again...

 

 

Now I got myself the Hifiman HM 601 + a second hand Corda Stepdance Amp + V-moda M80 / Westone UM3XRC.

 

 

Feel sorry for C2, it is a gem...cute, small, good sound...but defective...   :(
