Appreciate you takin the time to help me out pal! I wouldnt be using these ay where other then at home so portability is not an issue thats why iam wondering if the e10 would suit me better and be just as good as the e17?
On a slightly different subject, Iam updating my itunes library so that all new songs i download are at 320kbps (i figure its quiet close to lossless quality and it doesnt take up as much space plus its down right handier for me) However, People speak about youtube quality being poor and i have downloaded a song (kodaline - high hopes) and it arguably sounds better played at 1080p on youtube then 320kbps in itunes, Both are by no means poor sounding but theres a slight 'hissing' thats a little more apparent on the version i downloaded at 320kbps!!
One final question, Is it worthwhile adjusting the EQ settings in itunes? I read somewhere before not to go near the EQ so its currently set to 'flat' with pre amp turned off!!
Again, thanks so much for the help
