So why wasn't that opted for then, if it will buzz while charge, then that's no better than no playing while charging, for me it's the same. Nevermind about buzzing heard while playing, I wouldn't tolerate it while no music is playing. :P

 

But yea E12 is a portable amp and I'm looking for desktop use, it's just desktop amps have less performance/price ratio and doesn't typically feature any bass boost why I tend to look at portable amps.

Democratic vote

 

FiiO likes to listen to their fans. A huge vote happened. I was fine with either high quality but lower price version with no charge or current version but I went with the current version as many would rather change.

 

No buzz while playing music.

post #1098 of 3218

It's not a buzz per se. It's more like a very tinny distortion (it does slightly distort sound).

 

And I think I noted a while ago that using an external battery (that you use to charge your smartphone) would also eliminate all of that noise/distortion.

 

E12 + Zagg Sparq = about 40 extra hours on top of the 12 hours I had previously from what I can see. That's as much as I can ask.

I am a new headfi'er that just got an E12 and wanted to add my first impressions and comparison to E11 on this thread, but it was too long and seemed off-topic for what is being discussed now.  If you are interested, here is the link:

I've gotten a great deal of helpful information on these forums and wanted to start contributing.  Any posting advice you may have for me is welcomed, and I hope someone can benefit from my input.

 

(Sorry if it is impolite to post a link to my thread on this similar one - I am new to forum posting and still learning the ropes.  Thanks.)

"Welcome to Head-Fi! Sorry about your wallet"

 

Welcome RsIV. It is not impolite to post a link to another thread that deals with the same topic. Post away :)

 

Posting advice? Nothing really. You just can't link to a banned member's site, post etc etc. This mainly only applies to he who shall not be named.

I cant believe this thread has got so much longer in just a few days.

I also cant believe a new design is being prepared with a different bass boost. Seriously, when the music has the grunt, the E12 grunts big time without ruining the song. The E11 has bass boost but not to my liking, too dark sounding.

I just put down the bass attack to all that power providing control, effortless control. And thats with a bass light HD558.

If the redesign does occur, I reckon the first ones will be a collectors item as they will have a pure audiophile sound. Be prepared to pay big bucks for version 1.

And just in case anyone was wondering if mine is for sale, it most definitely is not!

I still feel as excited with my E12 as I did the first day I heard it!!!

I read "a band members' site... he who shall not be named" and was thinking "Why not? Aren't we music lovers? Who is this amazing musician we cannot speak of?"

 

I'm THAT tired.

His stuff is featrured and used quite prominantely here on HF.

post #1104 of 3218

Yeah I think I know who it is.

We're talking Objective guy right?

post #1105 of 3218

Yes, he who shall not be named.

post #1106 of 3218

Indeed. I tried to be vague wink_face.gif

post #1107 of 3218

Cool - Thanks!  Yeah, my wallet is already taking a crunch, and my Fiancee thinks I'm kinda nuts, but I love and listen to every pair I own. Looking forward to being a headfi contributor instead of lurker, and I appreciate the welcome.

I don't mind at all either, in fact I think it helps refocus the thread. This thread will be a better resource with reviews and review links sprouting off from it biggrin.gif

If I recall correctly the first reviews were around page 38. Also on the headgear there is my review as well if this helps people.
