3G data will definitely create noise.

yes I am referring to the new one.

Hey guys, I just got mine today but I think I might have a different product. What was the color of the box in which your E12 came in? I see video reviews in which the box is white and mine is black and red, and the Output Power on the back says 600mW(16Ohms). Any thoughts ?

I already had one from german fiio shop and that one had normal white package
According to tech spec they are same
Still am i wondering about that...

That is the same package I got, my only worry is that in FiiO's page is advertised as having 800mW output and in the box it says 600mW... or am I wrong ?

Mine came in the white/red/ box (purchased about a year ago)... and here is the spec sheet...

Oh now I see, FiiO puts in the box the medium output power, not the maximum, not the minimum. Thanks ! I'm pretty new to this hobby as you can see haha.

Output power depends on the load (the headphone) as well. But both 600mW and 800mW (into, say a 32ohm load) is more than capable of bleeding your eardrum at full force.

By the way, I see you have the momentum on ear, how are those working for you ? Do you think over ear are better than on ear version ? 

 

edit: I can't even pass the 50% mark on the volume nob with my iPhone or my macbook at 100%.

I'm enjoying them very much! Thanks for asking! 

 

Never tried the original, however... sorry

I think I'm going to buy the Momentum Over ear for my mobile needs and I think I'm buying the HE-400 for home use. It is really hard to choose as someone who is just entering in all of this and has to see as many reviews as possible and read so many articles, and yet, I know I don't know anything :p 

Anyways, thanks for replying. have a nice one :)

I think is just that the newest pieces are coming in the black/red box, I like that one the best though. :popcorn:

I still don't know whether I should send my E12 back or not. Can anyone else comment on the hissing issue?

Its not usual
Maybe you try line in cable to move a lil bit in and out
It could be a bad contact or high resistive cable
Voltage could be developed on bad places and produce hi freq noise
