This is my first review that I am posting, so this might be below average. Sorry, but i'll try my best. Earlier today, I recieved my long awaited Fiio E6 amplifier. I have been looking forward to this amp for a while now, so i'm very excited. When I got home, I immediately plugged the amp in to get it charged. Now onto the review itself!
Build quality- This was actually very surprising since it was only about 25 dollars. The build quality was very nice and it feels solid. I am not very worried about this breaking yet. I would give this amp a 7/10 since it is only plastic.
Accessories- This amp comes with a 3.5mm to 3.5mm straight jack connector cable which is pretty long, a much shorter right angle connector, two plastic clips, and the amp itself. I would give the amp a 6/10 since I was expecting a couple more things.
Sound quality- This amp has a couple settings on it: regular, eq1, eq2, and a mixed one. When I first listened to the amp, I noticed an immediate change in my music. By this I mean I noticed a decrease in background hiss which made listening so much more enjoyable. I have noticed that the eq1 works better for less bass heavy songs, or if you just want a little boost. The eq2 is good for bass heavy songs, or a nice bass boost. The regular doesn't change the sound, and I don't exactly know what the other setting does. I would give this amp an 8/10 in sound quality.
Value- Since this amp can be yours for only a mere 25 dollars, I will give this amp a 9/10 simply because you get a very portable amp that increases quality tremendously.
disclaimer- all listening was done on my trusty sony mdr-ex36 earphones. Yes, I know they aren't very nice, but I am currently looking to buy a new set of iems or over ears. If you have any recommendations, I would appreciate it. I would like to stay in the 100-125 category. Thanks!
I hope you enjoyed the review. Pictures will be posted if they are requested. If you have any tips, then go for it. Thanks for reading!
