It seems that getting a hold of one of these at list price on Amazon is not an easy thing to do (at the time of this writing), so after looking around on the web I've managed to get one (for a reasonable $129 shipped) from a FiiO authorized dealer: Sonic-Electronix. Now, I should start with a disclaimer: In general I don't like (spending money on) portable hi-fi audio gear, and that for two reasons: (1) Portable gear is often resource limited (space, power, etc.) and the designs involve all kinds of compromises (power vs. accuracy, size vs. mechanical durability, etc.) and (2) Listening to music on the go, in transit (a car, bus, train, plane, etc.) or any other public places is often marred by so many other spurious noises that the advantages of using hi-fi audio gear are often negated. Nevertheless, I needed a good headphone amp with some bass-boost capability for home use (to improve the sound of the Sennheiser HD-598 headphones when used with the Onkyo C7030 cd-player) and none of the desktop amps in the $150-300 range have that (bass-boost) feature. So, after looking at some of the portable/transportable amps out there (from JDS-Labs, C&C, Fiio, iBasso, Leckerton, Matrix, SMSL, Little-Dot, Meier, MicroShar, etc.) I decided to try this new offering from FiiO: E12 - The Mont Blanc.

Bulid quality: The Fiio E12 is encased in a machined aluminum box (about the size of a smartphone) with a brushed, black finish. On it, the adornments are fairly minimal: a semi-recessed volume knob that doubles as on/off switch, two 3.5mm jacks (in/out), and a bunch of recessed switches: voltage gain (0dB, and 16dB or 6.4x), a cross-feed (to change the feel of the sound stage), the bass-boost, and a micro-B USB plug for charging.

I am a busy person. I bought a lot of audio and video devices from Amazon and liked them, but didn't bother to write a positive review because I have been very busy lately. But with this product, after using it for two months, I am compelled to share my review with potentials buyers.
The most valuable upgrades are:
1. Sound - more powerful and vivid sound than E11. E11 sounds great already. But E12 sounds superbly. I am using AKG 702, Beyerdynamic 770, 880, 990, Sennheiser PXC 450, HD 598. I listen to rock, metal and pop. This sound upgrade truly makes a top-notch headphone amp with iPod touch for those headphones. To use an iPod touch 30 pin to 3.5 mm cable to connect the two devices is necessary to maximize the sound potential of both devices. It doesn't have to be the FiiO proprietary one. A generic one is fine. I recommend using the Y-shape cable with a 3.5 mm output and and a USB male, which allows you to charge your iPod while using.
2. Using while charging - E11 doesn't allow you to do that. But with E12, you can do it. It allows you to listen to the music without being interrupted.
3. Build quality - much better build quality than the E11. The entire thing is sealed. It feels as sturdy as a military equipment. It looks and feels very stylish and high-class.
4. Has a battery weakening indicator, which will light up to alert you that the battery will run out soon so you can charge the amp before your music suddenly dies while you are listening.
5. Use standard micro-A to Micro-B charging cable, which is more compatible with other mobile devices such as smart phones. You would avoid keeping many different types of USB charging cables in your bag.
Yes, there is a significant price increase over the E11. But based on the upgrades listed above, I think the price increase is justified. And I don't want to go back to use the E11 anymore.

This amp is incredible. Without any hesitation I would recommend this to anyone looking for a super powerful portable option. Prior to this purchase I owned the E11 and it was a great little amp, but it couldn't push my HD600's well enough. Being 300 Ohms, they're very hard to push.

The E12 has no issues at all powering my HD600's just as loud and clear as any of my home amplifiers. I own tube amps, class A solid state amps, and lots of other headphone equipment, and the E12 Mont Blanc will be my portable option of choice. This amp goes about as loud as my Schiit Magni headphone amplifier. Love it. Not only is it one of the most powerful (if not the most powerful) portable amps out there, it looks gorgeous and feels extremely well built.

I would say this amp provides about a 25% improvement in volume over the E11. I also think the Bass Boost on the E12 is better. The lows hit harder and distort less than on the E11.

I planned on keeping this short :) But it's just a great little amp that I've fell in love with.

I use this with a set of Beyerdynamic DT 770s in 80Ohms and it works perfectly. It has power to spare and it looks amazing.

The bass on the DT 770s without amping is kind of lacking, but with the Mont Blanc it really sounds as it should. It also has a Bass Boost button in case you want more.

The good thing about this amp is that it will power nearly every set of cans out there, so I'm not worried about buying a next pair of headphones and not being able to drive them.

UPDATE 03/05/14:

-This is the perfect match for the Beyerdynamic DT 770s, it really brings out the best in these cans.

-I am also using it with the Brainwavz HM5s and it really gives them a boost.

-Build quality is great, not a single scratch on the device.

-Battery is as promised (between 9 and 12 hours of play time)
