          If you are in the market for a portable amp, stop here and get this little gem. I use this with my sony MDR v6 and I feel I am in studio recording the sound. I dont know how they did it its incredible performace. If Fiio ever offer public IPO at wallstreet I will jump and buy million shares!

            I am a professional phone interpreter, I have tried plantronic systems for years but this amplifier beats them all, works great, sound quality improved a lot, no distortion or funny sound, charges thru usb port of the computer, mine I used the adapter for my iphone with the usb cable provided with the amplifier and had a full charge in 3 hours, it tells you when charging, when empty and when it is fully charged, I use it for 12 hours in a row and still plenty of charge left. great product, small and lightweight, metal construction.

            Comments about Fiio E12 Mont Blanc Headphone Amplifier:

            The E12 Amp is a godsend for anyone whose computer (or any other device) doesn't allow for an optimum sound experience. You just plug it into your computer to get it juiced up, then attach your headphones, plug it into the headphone jack and you're ready to go. The charge lasts a really long time. The sound is clear, unmuddied. The better the headphones, the bigger the difference. There is also an optional bass boost, which I use. I only took off one star because I wish it even had more power (no, I am not aurally impaired). I assume that's where one would have to invest more. For the price, this little gadget is wonderful.

                Enough Power to drive HD650 & Hifiman HE-400 and Plenty of juice when used on bright headphones like Grado SR80i. Amazing result when paired w/ player with good DAC like Fiio X3. Battery life is decent and enough for daylong listening in the office. Solid styling!

                  I use this product with my ipod,mostly on the go. It certainly makes the sound from the ipod more powerful. There is a gain of 16 db that makes it the sound even more powerful. It also has a bass boost, but only a little. So I am happy with this, also I low volume, you can feel fidelity of the sound. I would recommend this Fiio amplifier to everyone.
                  Thanks.
