The detail in the audio was vastly improved with a full bass and airy audio that added life to the games I play. Of course, the amplification helped as well.

So who should get it? Well, audiophiles will love the idea of more power and the ability to achieve that certain sound quality you can only get from playing around with an equalizer. Tech junkies will get a kick out of how convenient the E3, and how convenient it makes life in general. Generally speaking, though, this is something that people who are always on-the-go will really enjoy.

It will be better if the bluetooth capability of the device can be used to transmit sound to wireless headphones and speakers when connected to the PC as a sound card. The sound quality is great with the built-in amplifier. SBX Pro Studio improves the effects of sound as well. It is portable and makes it easy to improve the quality of your sound significantly.
I am very happy with the product. It is easy to use and my music get noticeable louder and clearer; it's not a volume factor but the overall quality of the music is better. The bluetooth connectivity makes it smart and I don't need to fumble with my earphone wirings as much. Usually wear it during my commute for work.
