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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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