FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and Cross feed! - Page 16

post #226 of 3695
Haven't paid enough attention to test scientifically, but I think even my lowly E5 outlasts my iPod 5th Gen's battery. So if my iPod needs charging, I charge the FiiO too, never been an issue the way I use it.

The only time I run out of Amp battery is if I've been amping my gaming setup with it after a few sessions using the FiiO with my iPod first. And it's not like an Amp is an emergency device anyway.

All that said, however, a low battery indicator can only be good smily_headphones1.gif

WOW, look at that! I love the silver around the jack opening, looks like machined aluminum.

Also look at the edges on the sides, very "iphone 5-like" in a very good way :etysmile.gif

 

PS: btw where is the LED indicator for low battery?

I'm kind of jelly because i still have to use mah E9/E7 (which i think looks miles better than the E17) But I agree this is just beautiful.  Oh wow I just saw it runs off of AAA batteries lololol -10000 coolness points.  I know they make rechargable batteries but really how much more would it cost to just put a non replaceable LiPo in there? I would think it would make it quite a bit thinner too.

I had no idea that Fiio is into rubber bondage, at least Fiio is a top and not a bottom.

Ah-h-h-ha... Do I declare that awkward, or do I ask "what's wrong with being a bottom?"

Oh, and LingLingJr,
The AAA's are not only easier to replace when "out in the wild" and away from charging outlets, but AAA batteries offer better, more consistent charge as the battery runs low. Don't worry, it's already been debated.

Masterfully.

E12 looks beautiful... will it accept USB audio from a Galaxy S3?

They have the E18 for that(not yet released). E12 is just a portable headphone amplifier. It will not use USB OTG digital LPCM data from any smartphones. Only analog.

^^^ Like he said. The E12 will just be a (powerful,) amp, not a DAC for portable devices. Would be highly interesting to compare to an O2, though the O2 is a bit larger.

Any info/ETA on the E18?

post #236 of 3695
Ill compare it to my custom O 2 for you wink.gif it wont be fair as it doesnt use standard bom and a opa2228 burr brown but whatever.

The Fiio E12 should be named Frank, the one on the bottom should be named Rocky.

Oh, but isn't it nice!

>_>
<_<<br />
Just plz don't mention Prof Everett.

And bowei,
Thanks for the offer! From ClieOS's review, it sounded like the E11 was of the same transparent sound signature as the O2, just a bit less powerful and refined, and now that an E12 is on the way with more power and refinement, plus a more portable form factor...

I've seen the movie about 300 times, mostly dressed as Rocky.
