I've listened to the following two setup and can't hear big difference when turning bass off on E10. Does this mean the Macbook pro's sound card is almost as good as the external E10?
1. Macbook Pro --> E10 --> Senn HD 598
2. Macbook Pro --> Senn HD 598
Tried with a little Philips she3580, the E10 upgrades the cheap earbud with richer and thicker sound, which is very pleasant to hear.
After a few day's burning in, I still find the valueadd to hd598 from e10 with bass off is subtle to listen to classical. But the added bass is pretty natural and to me it improves listening to pop music clearly.
