I just got an E6 in the mail today alongside some EPH-100s, and they sound pretty fun together. What worried me starting off was that the E6 dropped audio for my right earbud twice, with a noticeable, light popping sound (mini heart attack, thought my $150 earbuds just burnt out). Bypassing the E6 shows that my headphone is just fine, plugging back into the unmodified E6 gave just the left ear. Switching EQ modes fixed it initially. Recently it started completely dropping audio for both ears, EQ mode didnt do anything, requiring the device to be restarted. It just does it randomly and occasionally, triggered by my moving around. I mean, I move around much, but I can't just trigger it on demand. Can jiggle the cable and jacks around as much as I want, and it'll behave, but when I say, go to grab my cup after walking around the house, it'll cut out.
Did I receive some faulty model or something? I'm not sure what I'm particularly supposed to be listening to either sound quality wise, this is my first quality IEM actually.
The EQ settings agree with what I read here http://www.head-fi.org/t/566351/fiio-e6-story-of-the-tiny-amp-continues-w-review-on-1st-page
Bass boost on the first setting, slight bass boost on the second setting allowing the treble to be focused on more, and the last setting reduces volume. I'm slightly worried that it might be sending overvoltages or something to my right earbud when it cuts out, maybe killing it down the line...help?
I want to note that it reported it was at full charge after a half hour or so originally, then left it charging for another hour after playing around with it where it read it still wasn't fully charged. Dunno if that says anything though.
EDIT :: And my EPH-100's right earbud specifically has random audible/physical static now...
EDIT:: Can't run the E6 for more than 10 seconds now without it cutting out, this is definitely going back.
