Is it possible for users to replace the 800mAh/11.1V battery with a higher rated compatible battery - say 1800 - 2200mAh (if available)?

sorry, not enough space to put a bigger battery inside.

This looks awesome....Fiio is just great, and I love to see you interacting here while developing. I will be purchasing this and the x3 as well.

Please make sure the "bass EQ" switch is more sturdy than on the E11. It is very difficult to easily switch it to the middle position. It doesn't really click in securely.
Thanks

 My DAP won't last 15 hours of playback anyways, so I think 15 hours is MORE than enough time between a charge. Bring on the better quality LM49600 buffer please !

Any indication of a release period at this stage?

Hi guys,

 

Recent Head-Fi lurker and first time poster here.  I'm a total noob when it comes to headphones, but I'm slowly learning, thanks to you guys.  smile.gif

 

I recently ordered my very first full-size headphones... the AKG Q701.  I'll be using them at home and at work for music and gaming.  And maybe on personal/business trips when I'm just hanging around the hotel/house.

 

I'm now looking to get my first portable amp for my Q701 and this FiiO E12 has caught my attention.  Hopefully this will be a great combo. Can't wait for it to be released!  L3000.gif

The LM49600 sounds nice.

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

 

Why use a portable amp with the Q701? Are you going to be using it between rooms at home? I wouldn't recommend using the Q701 in a public or traversing enviroment. If you are using the Q701 statically, a desktop amp would be better.

Thanks for the welcome.  :)  I won't be using the Q701 in multiple rooms at home, but I will be using it between home and work.  I definitely won't be using it in public or traversing environment, but I may use it when I'm stationed in a hotel/house when I'm on a personal/business trip.  Is a desktop amp something I can move around between home and work?  If so, I'll be sure to check them out.  TIA

Some choose to just buy two sets of units but I get that not everyone has $300 to spend

Are you going to be using with an ipod or iphone?

If so then it should be fine. I used an E17 with my Q701 for a few week and it worked well. Just enough power.

But of course i dont have other things to say as I dont have the E12

Hey James, what about the price and the special Head-fi edition that you talked about?

Thanks!  Looks amazing and I want one yesterday!  How does the one-stage bass boost compare in dB to #1 and #2 boost on the E11?  Is it in-between? 

 

Will the E12 highlight mids more?  I will be running my M-100 through it. 

 

Also, if I purchase an Iphone 5, will the E12 be compatible with it through my L9 adapter and the digital output adapter or will FiiO offer a new digital adapter?

I've got similar questions, so +1
