Agreed. I have a Fiio e11 and the bass boost does just that- it boosts the bass. It has very little if any noticeable effect on mids. I keep mine on the 1 setting at all times.

 

I am very much looking forward to the release of the e12. You bet I will be ordering it the moment it's available. The e11 offers great performance for the price and I imagine the e12 will be no different. Just better :)

This little amp has got me very interested. If the initial reviews and impressions are good, then I'm sold. Fiio makes greats products.

I don't really feel your post was all that clear, especially that part about "spongy" power supplied by batteries. The first thing I think about a sponge is how absorbent it is, or porous in texture; could you describe what you meant in a different way that is a little less obscure?
 
" a more powerful amp will have more body in the bass and high treble frequencies, and many other small improvements that result from the muscle to drive headphones at their full potential."

There was nothing obscure about it. You claimed more power equals better bass and highs and that's just not true. The galaxy has enough power for moat IEMs, it just isn't quality power. I didn't make a claim, you did. You stated more powerful and not better in your initial post and are changing that up now. Perhaps you should explain why more power sounds better if you don't clip a well designed lower powered amp. You could hook up your headphones to the speaker outs of your home amp and it would be a fine impedance match but it actually sounds worse than a good dedicated headphone amp with a fraction of the power. If you intended to say better amp instead of more powerful amp, it's clearly not what what happened and I was very clear in my 1st response about the difference. You were not yet still called my post obscure.beerchug.gif

I found the e11 bass boost better than most but did reach the mids.  I tend to think of below 50hz as sub bass but it does continue increasing to 50hz. That said, it's a sound that most seems to like and quite useful for them.bigsmile_face.gif I don't judge amps by their EQ which is strictly a preference. Thought the e11 good and have high expectations for the e12.

Just got a confirmation email from FiiO finalizing shipping info for the limited E12 pre-order.  Should just be a couple weeks.  Can't wait!!!

I am sorry for my lack of knowledge when it comes to forums. I am a newbie in that regard as well as using portable headphone amps and such. I have an HTC Rezound for my cellphone and I have purchased a pair of V-Moda M100s. I am wondering if this device would be able to work with these items. Thanks in advance for your answer.

I think if the E12 is all your budget allows, it may be the best value.  I am pleased with the performance of my E11 with the M-100 and the E12 should be far superior.  If cost is not an object, I would recommend the upcoming V-Moda Verza as it was voiced using the M-100.  However, it will likely retail for 5X the cost of the E12.

^Just to add to that (and maybe to your confusion tongue.gif)

I just bought a C&C BH, which has some features the E11 and E12 are missing, is cheaper ($100 shipped), and according to the appreciation thread, outperforms the E11.
