Ok so I ordered some Sennheiser IE80 and a Fiio E18 Kunlun amp.
The reason I went with the Fiio E18 is because I liked the idea of being able to charge my cell (needed with 16 hour shifts in the middle of the oil fields) and because I liked that it was also a DAC unlike the E12... Not that I even know exactly what a DAC is or if its worth it but I wanted to try it.
I am completely new to the hi fi audio scene. All I have as of now are my Klipsh s4 and my Android phone. I also use my s4's for Pc gaming.
I mostly listen to talk shows on my way to work. But I got these just because... IDK... I just researched them and wanted them. I will start listening to more music once they arrive. Rap, Rock, and Mexican music mostly.
But now that I ordered them I don't know what else I should do to get the best experience both from my phone and my Pc when gaming.
I know I should get only FLAC files now. But what else?
What and How do I burn them in? Do I just leave them connected to my pc over a few days playing random music?
Do I stick with the Stock Android player?
Should I use the Equalizer app I have? The one with the EQ yellow/orange symbol. If yes then how about the Bass Booster, Virtualizer, and Reverb settings on the app?
Does playing music over the 3.5mm cell jack to Amp jack as opposed to Cell Micro USB to Amo DAC style make a difference in sound?
When using my phone to play music on my $4000 Car audio sound system. Should I use Bluetooth or Aux input? Does it matter?
When it comes to using them on my Pc gaming:
Are these (both items) any good for gaming and positioning?
Are these items good for pc gaming, movies or anything else aside from music? Used individually or together? I can easily spare the money for a better one if needed. And later on I might even get some Sennheiser 700 or 800's.
Any help and Ideas to help me get the total best use of my new gear would be greatly appreciated.
