Fiio E17 vs E12 (In general and in terms of EQ)

Discussion in 'Portable Headphone Amps' started by frankyspanky, May 24, 2013.

    I'm currently using my Fiio E7, and as headphones JVC-FXZ200.
    I think it is worth it to upgrade to the fiio E12 or E17, can anyone give me some opinions on that? 
    I use my E7 on full bass boost (always), and I don't mind some more boost sometimes. For bass boost, is the e12 or e17 better?

    I would go with the E12, however from what I have read. The bass boost on E12 is sutler, but it is present. They are both portable. The
    E12 has a processor and power amp build in. But if your looking for a lot of bass go with the E17.

    What are you actually trying to do?

    Obviously if you want POWER, get fhe E12.

    If you want a decent DAC and a less powerful headphone amp, get the E17.
