Looking at the E12 for my first portable, I have Amperior's and Audeo Phonak PFE 122.  Any experience with the Senn's or Audeo PFE and your E12?

Want to buy an e12 if anyone is selling.

Have you checked the classifieds?

Snagged an E12 about a week ago from Headfoneshop Toronto.

 

Absolutely love the unit.

 

I am going to try coating the side of the amp closest to my phone with high quality 3M EMI Shielding tape to try and reduce EMI from 3G/LTE/Wifi. Using Airplane Mode until I can get my hands on it. Will let you guys know how it goes.

 

Setup is iPhone 5 -> official Lightning to 30 pin adapter -> Fiio L9 cable -> E12 -> Ultrasone Pro 900

 

Low gain, no crossfeed, no bass boost (well on some dubstep tracks I turn it on). I commute about 4 hours a day and listen to music throughout that time, and 30-45 minutes at work. I have yet to charge it in 3 days and the battery warning light has yet to show.

 

Build quality is excellent.

Nice!
It's a great amp for the money!
I must confess, sometimes I turn the bass boost on.
Don't tell anyone please?

And you call yourself an audiophile! ;)

 

I DEFINITELY like some color in my lows, but the Pro 900's already do that for me passively. Most of the time :veryevil::dt880smile:

Don't tell anyone, but I leave mine on permanently. Not sure if it's because it's the "version 1" or not, but I see absolutely no reason to turn it off.. love it.

Closet bassheads. :basshead:

post #2625 of 3026

I feel shame because SOMETIMES I use the bass boost.

Usually with Q701s.

 

Like I said earlier, don't tell anyone!
