Surely you aren't listening for the entire length of the battery life?? Ok, I understand it takes all kinds to make the world go around, but that much music WILL damage your hearing. Unless you just have stuff playing when you're not around to hear it, like part of a PA system or something? Anyway, you at least have the benefit of a predictable point in your day when the battery runs out, and you'll know about when you'll need to be near an outlet or USB port. Maybe just charge it in your sleep?
No, I don't listen to music for hours of end :p my ears need to take a safety break and I need to take a break from music after an hour or two. But it is usually on throughout the day while I'm driving to and from work with my FM transmitter, in the morning for a song or two while I wake up, and pretty much constantly on while I'm at home on my computer, whether I'm surfing the net, watching movies, playing PS3, or actually listening to music. I usually end up recharging it every night right before it dies. Probably the longest I've ever listened to music in one sitting is three hours listening to the ASOT Den Bosch sets; nowhere near close the E12 battery life.

Could I leave it plugged in without issue?
I'll mostly use it on the desk; would I have to manually unplug my M10s to plug in my AD900X w/ the E12 or is there a way I could just plug my headphones in and go?
I'll still be able to use my card's Dolby/EQ while amped with the E12 right?
Would it be a good addition for me, if not, what's a better option?
Yes, the E12 has a specific feature that allows it to smart charge -- meaning you can leave it plugged in indefinitely, even after it's charged, and it won't harm the battery. It's "smart" ;]
I'm not sure about your second question. The E12 has one headphone out, but if your M10 has a headphone out, then you could go E12 -> M10 -> AD900x, I guess. Maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.
Yes, you can still use your card's Dolby/EQ
Yes, the E12 pairs marvelously with the AD900x. Out of curiousity, though, which version of the E12 do you have? The newest one or the pre-order version that was available from the beginning of the year until a few weeks ago?
