Pros: Cheap, good volume, no hiss(32ohm), nice eq & really good upgrade from Laptop

Cons: Could do with a better gain when plugged into MP3, no quick lock

Wanted an improvement over my onboard laptop mess.

 

No interference, hiss (from 32ohm), very quick connection, good volume.

 

Bass reproduction on EQ Bass1 is spot on with my AKG K550.  Stereo seperation seems spot on and the general tone is much more appealing through the E7 in comparison to onboard laptop sound.

 

The bass and quality of sound is the most promonent improvement over laptop on board sound.

Hello to DolbyDan,
Just came across your thoughts on the Fio E7 and would say that this great little portable usb dac
Is without doubt the most cost effective way to achieve a very noticable improvement to the sound heard through your headphones.I have been using one since it first came to market with a wide and varied selection of both over ear and in ear including Grado SR125 big Sennheisers and currently with
Klipsh X10 and the soundstage is wide instruments are given space.and as you say bass is full and has that tautness to give the music real body.I use mine currently with a Zune 30gb player with mp3 -320 files and wav and listen to blues funk rock actually anything and all benefit from this lovely well made dac lastly it is great on battery when out and about lasting for ages.
