For Sale:
Fiio E12 Original Version (Bass boost lower than current model)

Will Ship To: USA

For sale is my Fiio E12 in very good condition. This is one of the first units that went out with the bass boost increasing the low end by 3db. Fiio has since pushed the boost up to 6db or something, so if you want a more subtle increase this unit is suitable. Everything on it works fine and cosmetically it's in very good shape. Sold

It's a 6dB boost aimed at 20 Hz... The newer versions have the same 6db, but it's centered at like 80 Hz where many headphones already have a bass bump. Whereas the new version has bass bleeding over the mids, the original boosted bass in a region where most open headphones slope off.

I have one like yours, and I think of the bass function as more of a bass-extender than a boost. Extra value over the current version, I say, though the rest of the fundamental sound quality shared between both models is very clean, solid power, usually enough to do double-duty with larger home headphones, convenient for gaming setups, and pretty easy to use on-the-go with a backpack or cargo shorts. It is good enough to be a noticeable upgrade from portable music players.

Thank you very much for the clarification. 

 

Somebody asked me about battery life; I have recharged this unit maybe ten times total, so battery life is still good.

Hard to figure shipping if your profile doesn't say, literally, where in the world you are.
