I'm not sure why you're getting so upset about people wanting a bassier version.

No one is asking FiiO to change the E12, just make a bassier version.

 

You non-bassheads still have your E12

We bassheads get a bassier version of the E12

FiiO gets more money

Everyone wins.

 

 

And this whole discussion about a possible bassier version of the E12 was started by FiiO not us.

How cool would it be, if you could plug E12 into your PC via USB and adjust the bass boost DB manually!

Just sayin! cool.gif

It would be cool but not very usable or a great use of resources for FiiO.

 

The E12 is just an amp. Having to plug in to a PC just to adjust bass wouldn't be too fun.

 

Depending on how much it would cost, if it seemed to be a good invesetment or not. An E12 with more bass boost options would be viable. But that is up to them.

Well to be able to program how many db the bass boost button increases would be awesome! You program yours for +3, I program mine for +6, RoMee programs his for +100 or whatever, and we all have as much bass as we want at the flip of a switch. Great idea!

A 5db or 6db bass boost would be enough for me.

I could work with that.  If the option for boost is only on or off, 6dB seems like a good compromise.

You're just as entitled to opinions and suggestions as I am, neither of our experiences are "wrong." Now that you've established your position, could you please stop quoting me and implying that I want to fight?

I just want to note that if you have an external USB external battery handy... like the Zagg Sparq (1.0) that I'm using, then there is no noise whatsoever.

 

But then, I've used the same battery for any other amp, and never got any of them to produce any noise, so I guess external battery is the way to go if you plan to listen while charging.

Which Fiio amp is recommended for portable use,carrying it around all day ,with my i-phone??

 

RE262? Quite good sounding actually. Better than any of the FiiO amp so far of course.

 

As for which FiiO amp to recommend - that mainly depends on how much weight you are willing to carry around. If that isn't an issue, E12.

E12 bass boost is a little over +4.5dB, center around 30Hz and goes up around 200Hz or so with a 16ohm load. It is more like a deep-bass boost rather than the usual wide-bass boost (up to 1kHz) seen on older FiiO. If you like mid-bass (250Hz) boost, E12 doesn't have it.

E12 can run for over 12hours on a single charge (tested it twice). Unless you actually do listen to it for the whole day, you don't really need to recharge it that often. You can just leave it charging overnight when you are at sleep.

Well you can simply also buy a USB power adapter and charge it from the wall socket (no noise then either). What I've done with my ZO amp, I keep it plugged in and only let it recharge every now and then for battery's sake.

Thread Starter 

there are so many kinds of USB power, and some of them come with very poor power output especially the output noise which is hard to be removed by E12.
