I think you should start worry if the bass is actually distorted on your E12, but not before you actually have the chance of using it. There are people choking on their food all the time, but that's not going to stop you from eating, right? Don't worry too much. Distortion can come from many other places: EQ or clipping on the source, overall boosting beyond the capability of the headphone itself, etc. It is not necessary the fault of the amp nor does it mean it will apply to you.

You're asking for help with something that you haven't even heard yet? The E12 gets overall very positive reviews, literally 100's of pages within the threads on this site alone. I wouldn't worry so much. Plz update when you DO hear it, I'd like to hear your impressions!

i got my e12,and it's really great!
Great built
Soundstage got bigger
Bass is well defined than highs
Slightly more detail. May be l should let them burnin few hours.

I haven't tested the bass boost yet, and i use the 3.5-3.5 given cable. Waiting for my LOD cable and Q701's.i haven't tested the 16db gain setting yet.
