FiiO E06 Portable Headphone Amplifier

A step up from the E5

FiiO have upped the game a bit from the old E5, Keeping things affordable while offering some of the sonic benefits of it's more expensive rivals. The FiiO E6 has 3 EQ settings -3dB, +3dB and +6dB. The 3 EQ setting give flexibility to adjust the sound to suit your headphones as a lot of aftermarket headphones can promote a more bassy sound the -3dB setting can be used to level the sound out, while the +6dB setting adds a warmth to the bass and mid-range without over doing the bass. The FiiO E6 is not simply a device to make the music from your device louder but it improves the sound quality, the same idea as buying an upgraded amplifier for your home system. These images show a direct comparison between the E5 and the new E6.

While the E5 was a heavy little metal clad amplifier weighing in at 30g the E6 with its plastic body is more portable weighing in at a mere 16g making it more comfortable to have hanging from your headphones. The FiiO E6 also comes with a removable transparent belt clip and a lanyard loop on the top edge which gives you more carrying options whether you chose to have it hanging round your neck, clipped to your coat or belt or just hanging from your headphones.
