Haha you don't need to smily_headphones1.gif
So long as you enjoy the music, doesn't really matter as far as I am concerned.

Be warned though, once you start down the rabbit hole wink.gif lol.

That being said these days there are also a lot of affordable options if you like the ui on the droid smily_headphones1.gif

Yea true, Poweramp works well on android, Can always tweak the eq and bass treble to suit the song.

Do you use the foam or the rubber buds, because I have heard the silicone buds give them more bass

but sound cancelling becomes worse. I havn't bothered changing them yet. :P

To be honest I only used the foams with them when I had them.
In saying that, the foams have a rubber inner so I would imagine the difference wouldn't be as great as some foams to silicone.

From my experience with my um mentors, the foams gave the impression of more bass (due to seal and isolation) and less detail in the upper range (either less detail or less perceived detail due to the increase in lows).
With those I actually preferred silicone as they were a very thick sounding iem through the mids so I found the silicone kept everything a bit lighter and detailed.

Really you just need to play around. So many factors come into play.

Seal, small bore, large bore, insertion depth, foam etc.

I really like my E6, it does a fair bit, i use it on android which isn't very loud, but with the Fiio, I only need my phone on half volume and it is plenty loud enough. The presets are pretty handy on the Fiio aswell, I always use the mid boost, I find it sound the best of the 4.

For the best sound, I strongly suggest you to turn the volume on your smartphone to the max and use the FiiO as volume control

For years I have watched as people posted their portable rigs with two, three or even more pieces of gear strapped together with great headphones or IEMs and pondered if I would own anything like what I saw. So today I have the portable rig to end all portable rigs! 3 DAPs, half-a-terabyte plus of storage and power for everything from ultra-sensitive IEMs through to planar headphones, even all at the same time! Now I just need to find some rubber bands as I didn't have any that would fit...

I am pretty sure this is how I would be diagnosed with ADD, if I had such a rig.

I find my phone distorts more at max volume, I put my volume 3 clicks from the end on my phone and then my Fiio about 3/4.
