A desktop amp would better suit you.

 

That's true. But I do want to have the option to take it out with me when I want to, hence wanting portable. 

 

Besides, the main reason why I want the E12 is because of its looks. I don't really know many amps in this price range that'd look as good as this (more difficult buying from Australia).

That's basically why I bought the E12, too. However, once I got it, I realized how convenient it was to power my headphones from different devices. So it is portable (large size of pocketable, but long and slim is a better fit choice IMO than wider and fatter), but also it is convenient for changing your setup (Xbox, computer, the living room, or with my iPod on the porch or in bed). Of course some minor compromises are made, such as the need to occasionally charge it. Also, I revised my post... Instead of saying "I don't like it at all," truth is it doesn't sound awful, but not as good as straight from the battery, enough so that I just wait for it to finish charging. You could just charge it every other day whenever you're not using it, then you'd always have enough juice.

anyone try compared e12 with alo national? which one better?

post #1895 of 3246

Got my E12 2 days ago, haven't even charged it yet. Just grabbed it out of the box and it works. Loving the bass boost

post #1896 of 3246

Okay before I bite the bullet:

 

1. It's okay to use in conjunction with my Xonar DGX right? And my iPod Classic 6G?

2. How noticeable will the improvement in sound be for both music and gaming? AD900X and A900X.

3. How will I plug them to the computer? I'll probably use the front panel (connected to the Xonar DGX) since my Swan M10s are on the back (no headphone input) and I'm afraid it might be a bit awkward with the provided right angled cables. Can I just use any cheap male to male 3.5mm cables?

1. Yes it is okay
2. Are you asking which is better? I havent heard the A900x, but I'll day the AD900x just because it's open and therefore has a better soundstage. Positioning is a little blurry sounding, but very good in general. The improvement for music with the AD900x is great because of how well the bass boost complements the rest of the sound. I don't competitive game, so idk.
3. You can use any male to male cable you want.

I got a chance to listen to my E12 at length today, and I like it a lot.

Listened to a variety of source material on Sony Z1000's and AKG K702's.

 

There's a whole lot more to say, but that sums it up.

It's a "keeper", and I don't hesitate even for a second to recommend it.

I read it was really sensitive to wireless signals ... it was meant to sit somewhere practically next to my router/modem (wireless is on for my phone/tablet) ... is that gonna cause an issue?

As a precautionary measure, I would not put any audio equipment next to a router!
Sounds like a recipe for noise to break into your audio equipment! redface.gif

It's a new pot, the E12 is still under warranty, why do you want to clean the pot?
