Fiio E12 Mont Blanc - A Worthy Flagship

 

BACKGROUND I needed something to power my Superlux HD330. My smartphone back then is a Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8. Audio from the phone is quite clean and decent but I did not think that it's powering the 150 ohm HD330 properly. It's loud enough at close...

Neutral, soundstage, great accessories, solid build, undetectable channel imbalance (if there's any)

Gain switch and crossfeed are recessed (needs pointed object to switch)

Nice portable amp for the price

 

Plenty of power for a portable amp

May not be good for IEMs or very sensitive headphones

A great buy if you want to enjoy music. E12a Mont Blanc

 

FiiO Mont Blanc for IEM E12a $159.99 When you pick up the Mont Blanc you feel like you have something substantial in your hand. Not that is is overly heavy, no, it is conveys the impression that this thing is meant to last, is not some cheap plastic...

Organic and very enjoyable at conveying the recording.

Great Sound and great value for money

 

So a couple of friends loaned me the E12 a month or two back and I have been listening them on various rigs and familiarising with them over a while, I'm not that experienced in the portable realm but will do my best to give you a clear picture of the...

Bass boost is pretty well implemented, powerful and good drive capabilities, nice warm sound

still won't drive everything, E12 regular edition has audible hiss which is fixed in the DIY version

A great addition to my portable setup, it really brings my rockboxed ipod classic to life. As this is my first amp it makes listening to my music more pleasurable.

Good battery, Sleek, Great sound improvement

High power output, bassy sound, option switches, sleek looking, great universal sound

Noise during charging, option switches are recessed, build isn't totally smooth.

Holy SoundStage

The Power of Zeus in your Pocket!

 

Here's my long-delayed E12 review on an early pre-order model. I waited to get a good feel with many songs before posting this, and a good feel for how the amp affects the sound presentation. I tested it with my standard playlist to get a reference...

It's like an E9 in your pocket, with lower output impedance, a crossfade feature, a boost to counter sub-bass roll off, for just $30 more!

Slim, but not the easiest to use from within jeans pockets. Bass boost is subtle. Vs cheaper amps, small improvement for easy-to-drive headphones
