Agreed.  Since I personally don't use the bass boost with my Vsonic buds, I'm fine with wherever the bass boost cut lands.  I guess I'd never know the difference, though, unless I were to be able to try a Ver. 2 against the Ver. 1 side-by-side.

Anyone selling a v.1 ?

Guys - i'm in a similar situation - bit of a Noob here but reading a lot on this forum.

Picked up a pair of HE-400's and an E12 - but now I'm concerned about the DAC in my PC. Thinking i need a USB DAC or something - but would I pair that with the E12 or should I get a USB DAC/AMP combo to use when i'm sitting at my desk?

I didn't see the E09k/E17 combo until after I bought the E12 - so i'm wondering if I should keep the E12 and get something else or send her back and pick up the E09k/E17. Or that O2 looks promising as well..

thanks in advance

IMO, there are some great offerings or "all in one" solutions that also work well with orthodynamic headphones such as those from HifiMan.  For example, there is a member (actually, "WJE") who is selling a Audio-GD NFB-12 amp with a built-in Wolfson DAC.  It features connectivity via USB, Optical, or Digital Coax.  Quite versatile, yet neutral and pleasant sounding.

 

This ends my public service announcement for today.  wink.gif

NFB-11.32 is an unbeatable value at 299$ - Sabre ES9018 DAC chip is amazing. The built-in amplifier is great too, but it can't be used standalone.

If you want to complement E12 for a great portable setup, the ODAC works great with it.

I think the E12 might not be the best pair for the HE-400 since the E12 is bright and the HE-400 has a tizzy treble.

If you JUST need a desktop setup(not taking it out or moving around(not sure why you would anyway)) the you should probably not unwrap the E12 and return it

For $120-$200, you can get a pretty good desktop setup from
Maverick
AudioEngine
Schiit
Objective Dude

etc etc
