I do not hear any of the buzz that has been mentioned.
I am not very good at describing the audio effect so I'll be pretty simple with my explanations. I have been listening mainly to hardstyle music, i.e. Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Calvin Harris, and the like, so my comments will be quite limited. I have been testing them primarily with my Ed8 and my Pro 900. I use PlayerPro.
Overall, the E18 does its best at making the bass more full. Not sure how to describe it but it sounds like there is more deep bass as well as mid bass. The bass is also quite a bit cleaner. This is even more apparent on lower quality recordings, which some of the live recordings from Tomorrowland and other dj music events are. It helps clean up the muddled bass in these recordings.
It seems to have a greater impact when used with my Note2 than compared to my MacBook Air (using USB connection). I guess that is because the DAC in the MBA is already pretty good compared to the Note2?
Sorry if this is not very helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to answer.
