FiiO Mont Blanc/E12 portable headphone amp, 880mW, slim design, full metal case. Bass boost and... - Page 168

Would anyone be interested in trading their v1 for my newer model? I feel that the v1 may be more of what I am looking for in terms of an added bass boost.


The Bass Boost on my E12 is a true smooth transition on my HD600.......no affect or whatsoever in other areas than bass.

How can I tell which version I have? I'm selling mine but would like to tell potential buyers which version it is.

Unless you bought it during the "beta" period, you have versions 2 - a.k.a "production version".

I would like to trade my 4 day old (new version) E12 for a version 2 E12. Anyone feel like switching with me? My number by the security scratchy thing at the top of the box says K344b. Anyone know which numbers correspond to which versions?

I see now fiio has updated their website to show the current version frequency reaponse graph. Thank you fiio.

I don't believe I've heard it yet from a FiiO but just making sure it's there. I have some very low impendence and easy to drive 16 ohm IEM's that are sensitive to that kind of stuff. They aren't expensive, nor do I use them often, but my O2 has a slight problem just as you turn the volume up from nothing.

Your 4 day old E12 is already version 2.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but if you're wondering if the E12 has a channel imbalance at low volume levels like the O2 does, then the answer is yes the E12 does have the low-volume channel imbalance.

I must admit I am quite confused on how many versions there are. My understanding is as follows;
Version 1 was preproduction and bass boost was 20Hz
Version 2 was production version and boost was 50Hz
Version 3 is current version and is >5db @ 100Hz

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I just want to trade what I have, for a more subtle boost. smily_headphones1.gif

Probably a mistracking of channels in the volume control.

I think there are only two versions.  JamesFiiO indicated the change from the pre-production model to the production model back in Post 1008:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/620339/fiio-flagship-portable-amp-mont-blanc-e12-discussing-thread-the-pre-order-unit-arrives/1005#post_9132609

 

The red curve in that post is very similar (perhaps identical) to the published one on FiiO's website for the production E12:

The curve on FiiO's website also matches another produced by another Head-fi'er via RIAA measurement:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/671590/rmaa-comparison-fiio-e17-alpen-and-e12-mont-blanc

 

The curves can be hard to compare because there is no reference level chosen in either of the FiiO curves (e.g. 0dB at 1kHz).

It would be nice if we can get an official response from fiio. Perhaps James is willing to chime in here?

post #2519 of 3263
Doubt it... James has chimed in on this topic enough times, already.
post #2520 of 3263

I'm confused... where did you hear about a new version with an even "higher" bass boost? This is the second time, that I remember, that someone has posted in this thread about mysterious versions past the official production model, aka version 2.
