I ordered a pair of Logitech UE6000's for portable use so I dont have to carry around an AKG K240 and FiiO E11... Getting it Monday through Wednesday next week... Also, so I dont have to listen to external noises.

On Ted's website, you can find the how to order form and for any special requests, just email him :)

It's pretty straightforward. My order which I emailed through to ted was:

Model: UM Miracles (recessed sockets)

 

Wire: Silver LITZ

 

Length: 4'

 

Y-Connect: Wood

 

Plug: Viablue small

He'll then send you a paypal invoice. Easy!

 

 

IMO it tightens the bass - noticeably so. Mids are the same. Highs - they seem to have a little bit more sparkle, it's hard to describe. It is different sounding though.

my bro new toy : )

post #13230 of 23613

I now use the FiiO X3 player with my AKG K550s:

 

 

 

I used to use the iAudio X5L strapped to the FiiO E11 and that just looks huge when comparing them. My X5L has given up on both the line out and the headphone socket so is no good anymore. It was built like a brick and didn't feel like it would stop working. It did in the end though.

 

 

It is great that the X3 sounds so good with my K550s without a portable amp added. The E11 does add a bit of volume and its bass boost is a little deeper sounding than the X3's own bass EQ.

 

I am really pleased with my X3. Such a big improvement in sound quality compared to my old player if you use the headphone output. I liked that you could still use the EQ through the line out of the X5L. That is one of the few things I miss on the X3.

Maybe a small clock would be nice too!
