Upgrade from E11 suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I currently am using an E11 and have been for a year or so and I've been extremely happy with it. I'm currently using the M-Audio Q40 with an iPhone 5 and I love the amount of bass the E11 produces with the headphones. There is a question and also a plea for recommendations based on a few things.

- I need a portable with the same amount of bass boost or better than the E11 with adjustable settings

- I need it to be relatively affordable (max £150)

- Better battery than the E11 plus charge+use at the same time

- Well built

I know about the E12 and have been tracking its progress here and I have a question. Does the one bass setting offer an equal amount of dB boost like the E11 or is it more subtle? This is the only reason I wouldn't buy the E12 because of the bass falling short of what I had on the E11.

Basically, if the E12 doesn't offer similar bass impact ill be reluctantly looking for something less and this is where you guys can really help me out as I haven't a clue where or what to look at. Thanks!

Read about the C&C BH which costs about $100 on ebay. Here is the Head-Fi thread link...

The Bass Boost in E12 provide almost the same dB boost like the Bass Boost 1 in E11, and  has less effect to the mid range.
