FiiO e5/e6 + Sony MDR-XB700, good combo?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I bought these headphones in the hopes that they would vibrate on my head in bass heavy songs, but they don't. I looked at many reviews and most of them say these  headphones literally vibrate when there's a lot of bass. Will buying an e5/e6 make them vibrate like that? If so, which one would you recommend?

Might as well get the E6.

I don't want to buy them if they don't make the headphones vibrate. They're great, but I bought them specifically for comfort and the extreme bass which I thought would vibrate like crazy.

What are you currently using to drive the XB700s with?

Either my laptop, or my Samsung Captivate (Android Phone). I have a different ROM so i have an equalizer.

That's quite weird, it should produce that rumbling bass (at a level enough) through a laptop and even a player like cowon Z2.  I enjoy the XB700 more through the a Cowon Z2 than an ipod.

I take it you listen to music with bassdeadhorse.gif

Mine don't do that at all. They don't rumble at the slightest.

What's your budget? If you are seriously wanting thump and ear vibration, try BOTH the Digizoid ZO / Fiio E-11 double amped. That's my combo with the XB700's and its flat out amazing. $150 buys both amps.
