Over the last few weeks I've been reading review after review of the Fiio E12 and it seems it's what I'm looking for to replace my E11 with my HD600/ipod while I'm roaming around the house. I have been thinking at times when I want to "rock out" that I would love just a tiny little boost in the sub bass regions as I find it sometimes lacking for my punk music depending on my mood. I thought it would be great to get the E12 as reviewers claimed it to have a 20Hz or 40Hz 5db boost. And, it has crossfeed which I have always wanted to try.
So tonight I pull the trigger at headphonebar and order it. After, I realize the specs say 5db @ 100Hz... What the heck? A quick check over at the fiio site shows the same. Did they alter the bass boost frequency region?? I find the bass boost on the E11 too high up in the frequency range for my tastes and it muddies up the sound. I've googled but can't seem to find a definite answer.
Thanks for any input you have!
