Sorry, already fixed.
I could be wrong, but I think that they are only manufacturing V2's now. Also, I don't think that any company have any V1's still available.
I'm sure the revised bass boost will be fine/great/better for some, but I sure do like the version 1 bass boost with my gear. Sounds amazing with the AD900X (pngwn made me aware of that great pairing), and also works very well with the WS99 (which have a amazing bass signature to begin with).
Three problems for someone with somewhat wideband headphones (like my HD650):
1. The original subtle bass enhancement is exactly what I need.
2. The new bass feature will create bloat given the width of the boost.
3. The bass now drops off in the low bass, which I can detect on other such devices, and disappoints.
Too bad the switch can't be 3 positions.
Also: I wish there were a subtle treble reduction slope down. Many headphones are treble heavy, and on my HD650, the E7 and E17 seem hyped as well as slightly uncomfortable in the higher frequencies. I get a tiny bit of improvement on the E17 with optical cable (removing USB charge) and with the gain set to max.
Question: is the E17 gain purely digital? If so, my observation would seem ungrounded, unless there is some issue with dither or truncation at different gain settings.
When is MP4Nation scheduled to receive it?
