FiiO E9 Review - Page 9

post #121 of 1313

I see, thanks for the answer.. Should I buy an adapter with a cord, like those grado ones often purchased along headphones on amazon or is the one that comes with the headphones good enough?

The 3.5mm jack is for lower impedance phones like IEM's, D2000's, Grados etc hence the in line resistor.... the 6.3mm jack I assume would be for stuff like 600ohm Beyers etc.....

 

Just ordering mine now :)

The stock adapter is good. You will not need another.

James, if I want to use the Bass Boost of the E7, and I plug in the E7 to the 3.5 input, what volume should the E7 be set to so that it can act as a "line out"

 

Micca suggested:

This is definitely one way that the E7 can be used with the E9. You might get a bit more background hiss when connected like this but the sound should still be very good, and you will get to use the E7's EQ. If do this, set the E7's volume to level 56 or above and use the volume on the E9 to control listening level.

 

Would you suggest this too? Is 56 too high? I was thinking 10 / 60



We inspected Riku's return unit and found that the E7 was the cause of the issue. The E9 unit was fine, however.

 

When you use the E7's headphone output to feed the E9, you want as high an output from the E7 as possible for best signal quality. 56 is unity gain from the built in E7 amp chip. I think anything between 56 to 60 should be fine.

Thanks, Jack. I bought both mine through Amazon, which I think buys from Micca or is partenered with them. Glad both Micca and Fiio are so helpful!

I have been listening to various kinds of musics through my HD555/E7/E9 for more than 8 hours today, and I don't feel fatigue at all. Actually the more I listened, the more I liked this little cute yet powerful set.

What I want to say is, while I do appreciate the simple and clean ergonic design of E9, I feel something is missing from the panel or top surface or side surface, a FIIO logo. Let me tell you, James, you should be proud of your brand enough to put it on a visible surface of your products. Not necessarilly big, but it should be there. Just a penny for my thought.

So I stopped using pink noise to burn in both the DT990 and E9. I now switched to a random mix of my entire music library to burn both in until my DT770/600 comes in.

 

This combo is kicking some serious ass. The treble is definitely more in tune than when I first got my E9 (as well my DT990 still being relatively new).

 

Let's just say that the DT990 will get 95% from now on.

 

I LOVE the E9!

Wow, mine just got in the mail. Been listening about an hour. Its fantastic! Its so powerful!

I have the K702's do you suggest using E9 on low gain (switch down) or high gain (switch up)?

Fantastic product

Which ever gets you closest to the 9-12 o'clock range at your comfortable listening level. For me and my K702 that's the low gain setting.

I am curious ...my D1 provide ample power to the AKG K702 but the bass is somewhat  uncontrolled and lacking the texture(in some songs)

...will the bass response with this be good. or will it be the same ...people with E9, K702/1 and D1, can only answer this .. or should i look somewhere else.

Does the usb that comes with the E9, have ferrites on it?

 

Also how is the E7 powered when docked on the E9, though the E9's mains power or though the usb?.

1,Yes, it have ferries on it!

 

2, When the E9 is power on, E7 is powered by E9, and when E9 is off , E7 is charged by USB power !

As some of you might know, I ordered my Fiio amp/dac bundle from mp4nation on november the 9th. It was shipped on nov the 10th and I was able to see it's status on the post office website today, after 3 days. The current status is: "The item is being processed for delivery". I shall keep you guys posted about my delivery status, unless someone tells me otherwise, because I think it may be interesting for other people to know.

 

Just an FYI, I'm from Brazil and customs service is very slow, wild (high taxes everywhere) and inefficient on my country.
