Pros: Suitable length and flexibility for piggy-backing to player or phone

Cons: Unshielded against EM interference

The L8 is packaged with the FiiO E12, and designed to link the music player's headphone socket to the portable amp's line in. The length and flexibility allows the player and amp to be piggy-backed together with elastic bands and put in a pocket. Unfortunately, if your music player is a mobile phone (mine is a Samsung Galaxy W), in anything other than flight mode, the cable does nothing to protect you from EM interference, audible loud enough to interrupt your listening. You will get 'dee-dah-dah-dee-dee-dee-dee-deet' added to your music every time the phone updates itself. Even holding the phone as far away from the amp as the cable length allows, still does not cure the EM problem. I substituted a 30cm length of double-shielded 3mm cable with right-angle adaptors on each end. Although this particular combination of cables does not fit together very snugly, it did cure the EM problem, even when the phone and amp are back to back. The EM shielding problem is therefore attributable to the L8.

Description:

The FiiO L8 is designed with two 90-degree right angle 3.5mm stereo jacks for connecting portable audio equipment such as headphone amplifiers and power amplifiers to any audio source with a 3.5mm output jack. Designed with high-quality materials, the L8 isolates the audio signal from interference to deliver cleaner and more accurate sound. The L2 employs the new HPC-22W cable with ultra-fine PCOCC-A conductors for its exceptional signal transmission property and usability. Rather than twisting whole wires, twenty strands of 80?m PCOCC-A wire are unified into a bundle and three bundles are grouped as a conductor that is geometrically stable. This construction method ensures uniformity of wire structure, eliminates internal gaps, and prevents deformation of wire strands. Furthermore, its total conductive area is equivalent to AWG-22, which is three times larger than regular audio cables. Each conductor in the HPC-22W is jacketed with 0.18mm PFA (Teflon), a material selected for its outstanding electrical and transmission characteristics. The shield/ground consists of 53 strands of 0.12?m PCOCC-A wire, with cotton rope filling the internal space and providing additional tensil strenth. The outer jacket is made of TPE olefinic elastomer, making for a tough, durable yet overall flexible cable. Feature Highlights - Shielded construction provides maximum isolation from interference - Pure copper conductors for better audio clarity and a more natural-sounding midrange - High quality durable connectors for precise contact and signal integrity Specifications Length: 7cm (cable only) Weight: 10g Wire Diameter: 4mm Wire Model: HPC-22W Wire Material: PCOCC-A Impedance: Max 0.1 Ohm Insulation: Min 2M Ohm Wire Jacket: TPE
