Lookin' good, besides the flimsy clip.

Good to see the volume control is now separated from the headphone jack. Overall, looks like an upgrade, with the possible exception of battery life. If I was in the market for a truly portable amp, I'd give it a look....but as it stands, none of the 'phones I have really need amping.

Did I read correctly that the clip--which is what I think they mean by "Split" on the spec sheet--is going to be removable? That alone would be worth replacing my E5 for.

Yup. You get a backup clip as well.

I'm hoping for some impressions on how it sounds here,...;)

E6 just arrived. Am charging it and will report back once tested. I have the E5 too so will do an AB test - via my J3 and RE272 iems.

bennyboy 09-07-2011 11:49 AM

Sounds better than the E5 on EQ2 level - more bass, better soundstage.

Looks and feelwise, its really light, small, is pretty stylish. Quite beautiful really.

I like.

I may have to investigate this little bugger then,...thanks!!!

Bennyboy, what's your impression of the plastic clip? Plastic in a clip like this always concerns me.

Dude, It's a plastic clip. I can't summon up any enthusiasm for it either way, sorry. It does the job of clipping the amp to things perfectly well. Personally, I prefer the amp without the clip - such removability at least makes the E6 better than the E5 if you ask me.

There - that's the most words I've ever spent on a plastic clip in my life. And ever will.

Mikerman 09-08-2011 08:39 AM

Dude, thanks. The concern: plastic clips can break.

They give you 2, so you can go nuts.

I haven't broke one yet, and I've had two Clips, two Clip+, and a Clip Zip.:p

I read in a review that the used material is supposed to be pretty sturdy (despite its appearance).

Once mine gets here I'll let someone I know play with it for a few minutes. That dude breaks stuff that can't be broken (not intentionally but something's up with his chi or whatever).

If he doesn't break it we'll be fine. :)

hmm good idea, give new device to the guy that breaks stuff :rolleyes:

razorblader 09-08-2011 12:16 PM

Do you want to know if it's sturdy or not? :D

Confispect 09-08-2011 12:20 PM

Wow......................

I'm sure there's plenty of peeps and members that would like to know, I'm not one of them but hope you took no offense to my post as it was joking, thus the rolleyes smile.

razorblader 09-08-2011 01:00 PM

No offense taken Walkgood, the whole thing was a joke. :D
Thought it was obvious...

I would never let clumsy/energetically unbalanced people handle any of my tech-gear, not by a long-shot. ;)
