I don't know about the e12->dt880, but I can tell you that the e10 has trouble driving a pair of vintage 300 ohm Sennheisers that I have. It works, but I need to boost the volume to max to get decent volume. Try sending an email to Fiio - they will reply with advice.

There were some discussions about driving DT 880 250 Ohm using E11 or 12. Two experienced head fiers said that E11 can drive their Dt 880 250 Ohm version headphone.

I doubt that DT 880 600 Ohm can not be driven by E12. You need something like magni or audiogd 15.32.

My FiiO E11 can drive my DT880 Premium 600-Ohm, with the volume knob at around 75%.

And the FiiO E12 is a more powerful head amp.

I currently use my Audio-GD NFB-15.32 to drive my DT880s and it does sound nice.

The DT880 Premium 600-Ohm also sounds good plugged into my O2, Essence STX and Yamaha A/V receiver.

Is the O2 considerably better than a Fiio option - I'm trying to make up my mind wether to get the O2 and deal with the size or if the fiio would be fine.

Am I going to enjoy the O2 far more basically?....
