Well... your avatar is cute in the same way Japanese "No" theater is cute, but if you think that's cute then your blue guy falls into that same category of "look." Power to ya bro! *fist bump*
*comes away with a chalky blue powder on fist, kinda weirded out*

Yes, the plaid really sets it off!

Faster than a speeding bullet!
More powerful than a locomotive?
Look!
Up in the sky!
It's Panda-man!


This is from a guy with a polar bear for an avatar.........

Panda-man vs Polar-Sapien; they could have been brothers, but they have been set on a collision course by a force unknown, with nefarious intent. Will this be the end of our Heros? Find out on next week's episode of Head-Fi, "The Kid Earpads are Coming Off!"

I've just order a FIIO E12 this morning to use with my iPod Classic, I did try the E07K and finally use it as my sound card on my desktop

Nice!

 

Some buy E12's for the small Sandisks which is a bit weird, but the iPod Clasics size and E12 fits together quite well.

I just got my E12 , but it came with a neoprene style cover with a synthetic leather Velcro latch. Was it supposed to come in the vevety black and brown fabric cover?

Here's a pic

Did I miss out on some packaging change or something? Checked and it's a genuine product on fiio's website.

That is new.

The others came in a black cloth baggy.

You could ask fiio support staff. I haven't heard of any changes. Their support email is on fiio website.

I just got an E12 a few weeks ago. Prior to that I was simply listening to my UE TF10's (that I've only owned for a few months) straight out of an Ipod 5.5. I was very pleased with the sound quality but....I got the 'itch'. Long story short, got the E12 (AND the L9/LOD) am amazed by the increase in sound quality. The difference was made crystal clear recently. I was out and hadn't charged the E12 since I 1st got it, sure enough, she ran outta gas. So I simply plugged my TF10's directly into the 'pod, after all, this is the original combo I was SO happy with before, it should still satisfy me, right? WRONG!!! I couldn't believe how disappointing the sound seemed to me now. Sounded anemic, thin, weak....couldn't wait to get home and re-charge the E12! I've read opinions that this is 'too much' amp to simply use with IEM's. Couldn't disagree more!

Mine also came in a jet black neoprene case with Velcro. I'm sure this is correct as I bought mine from an authorized reseller. It works well with this case on strapped to the iPod classic.

Answer: (Click to show)

With the FiiO logo facing you upright, the crossfeed and gain is to the right of the unit. To change it, you need to use a pen.

 

Love my E12, but I feel like bitching just a bit... the "need to use a pen" requirement is silly and inconvenient. Maybe there's a good reason why it is this way, but I'm not feeling it.

Send a letter to FiiO :rolleyes:

 

You have a concern, let a company know.

Had an E12 on Trial for 7 days...which expires tomorrow....I'm going to buy it :D

 

Mine also came with the neoprene bag / pouch with velcro strap on top....ordered from the NZ supplier  / distributor so, all good there.

 

The only complaint I have is with the build / finish quality of my Amp..the end plates do not sit even or flush on the device, it looks like they have been attached crooked....you have have to look closely to see this, not a biggie, but thought I would mention it....anyone else have this??

 

Have been paring it with my iPod Classic and UERM's......loving it!!

Ordered some Beyerdynamic DT1350's from Amazon 2 days ago, so can't wait to hear how they sound with the E12

I know what you mean, it seems that the cover with the Fiio word on it is convex , slightly bent towards the sides while the middle it's perfect.
