I can see two people jamming out on the bus together or in a park rocking out to EDM tracks. It''s not going to be for those who want to listen to Alison Krauss for example (Country / Acoustic).


just another question.

What pairs better with gr07 mk2/ce??

 

e06 or ap001

The problem with Rockbox EQ and Havi is I found it creates unwanted distortion very early. This is something AP001 doesn't do to Havi.


I think what you'll find is along with the enhanced mids and bass boost both together you get a grasp of the "sound enhancement" AP001's puts across to the listener. Rather than a regular amp that increases volume only (or it's meant to by default) the little AP001 has some tricks up Its sleeve to take things one step further and purposely mould the sound quality.  So it really does live up the 'sound enhancement" name on the packet.

Anyway I'm going to leave you guys to it and look forward to your impressions, I'll chime in later on.

  dont know about the 2nd but , you will like the gr07 BE more , but GR07s are sibilant at times , highs might not be so easy on you .

 

and at fiio's graph says that there is no hump at the top end with any Eq .

I have gr07 mk2 for a year now..........the highs are addictive.Sibilant and uncomfortable at times,yes.But brain burn in makes things nice after a while.

The NX1 is IIRC supposed to compete with the likes of the FiiO E12. The AP001, however, is on a lower price range and is supposed to compete with the FiiO E6. So yeah, seeing as you have a higher-spec amp, don't bother with this one.

I depends on your usage. The AP001 is really really small and light weight so for working out or other occasions were one might like as small a footprint as possible the AP001 is a great option. It improves the clip+ by quite a bit actually.
