I have both E3 and E5, and 4 or 5 earphones, including alphas. What can I say? They were made to work together!
Even the PL30 does not sound so nice as the alphas... My Panasonic in ear does not work well with the E3 because of the bass boost, but its OK with E5 in "flat" mode. The PL30's are really nice in ear phones, but I have some problems to fix it in my ears (they are too big!
ops: ) and they only works with the 2 stage foam. I gave it to my girlfriend, but kept the 2 stage foam to the black one I'm planning to order.
Well now, I cannot wait to get my purchase. On Friday I just purchased, with a friends help, a pair of Alphas and the Fiio E5. I have a Cowon D2 that has great SQ (good old Wolfson) but the bass response is a little weak. Want to see how the Fiio's bass boost will help.
Thanks for the info louisnomad.
