Good DAC/ okay AMP

Posted

Pros: DAC

Cons: AMP

The amp section is okay its not great. I would rate it 7/10   The DAC section data streamed from a computer USB is much better. I would rate it 8/10   Computer USB -->E17(DAC) docked with E09K with lo-bipass on is the best quality. I would rate it 9/10

Superior Sound

Pros: Sound Quality, no amp required

Cons: User interface,

Tighter bass, crispier highs, depth and wider sound stage.  Over a very crisp clean sound. My co workers joked around when they saw it and didn't take it a serious DAP saying it looked like it was from the 80's., However the shocked look on their face after they heard it, said everything.

The base is rich and full and will go very low without a lot of bloating. The base may not be big enough to satisfy a base head, however and analytical listen would consider it big. I listen to rock which I would consider the amount just right.   Comparing these to the HA-FXT90 I would say they are...

Good Sound Stage/Gamer headphone

Posted

Pros: Even accross the frequencies, wide soundstage

Cons: rolled off highs and lows

These sound similar to the M50 however the sound stage is wider. Compared to the M50;s the highs and lows seem to be a little more rolled off. The great sound stage makes these are great for gaming. The mids are same qty as  M50 but more spacious.
