Neither of us have used it that much.

1. do not use the E11 in On mode while charging
2. if the battery failed, you can replace it with the ordinary Nokia mobile / cell phone battery.

I bought the Fiio 11 to be used with Galaxy S3.

They will be connected by 3.5mm cable.:)

The S3 volume is from 0 to 15. Which point should be the volume? Half way like 7?

If I put at Max volume in S3 will have distortion?

Thanks:wink_face:

Since it's about the e11 I'd like to ask my question from another thread here too:

I've been reading some more about using the DT770 (80 Ohm) without an amplifier, and understood that they're not THAT hard to drive, so I decided to give it a go and ordered them the same night. Got them yesterday, and I must say I really like the sound (although I do realize they need quite a lot time to burn in).

When listening to metal(core) I get that deep bass, without getting too boomy and the bass drums and bass guitar "clogging up" (don't know how else to describe it) the rest of the instruments. Bu when listening to rap with fat bass I do get that BOOM! So it's exactly what I was looking for.

Now about the impedance... it's clearly quieter than my AKG K512MKII and Philips SPH8500, wich are both 32Ohm, but it still goes loud enough. With my mp3 player's volume set to max (30) it's even a tad too loud to be listening for longer periods. When set to 25, I find the volume ideal. However, it doesn't sound that impressive anymore... it misses the "fullness" (again, I don't know how else to call it...  soundstage??).

At the moment I don't have the money for the Fiio e11 (not even thinking about the e6 anymore), but I could get it next month, maybe even for my birthday wink.gif However, before I decide getting the e11, I'd like to know if it would give me that "fullness" I mentioned earlier on lower volumes. My logic says yes, but I just want to be sure... so what improvement could I expect?

I will suggest you set the volume in S3 to 13 or 14.

maybe there will have someone who can reply you , but depend on the specification the answer is yes. note the sound quality depended on different people. and people can't just judege the sound only by the specification.

I purchased the Fii0 E11 for use on a recent international trip with 24 hrs travel time one way. Took my Bose QC 15s and my trusty 160 gig IPod ... All I can say is it made things as close to heaven when you are doing that much travelling and the battery didnt run out until the end. I was considering the E12 but its quite a bit larger and I didn't want the added size when travelling. Although I have not listened to the E12 I'm very happy with my E11

TKS

I set S3 to 12 and E11 set at 4 or 5. It's good for me.

Concern SQ, Is it better use high voltage or low voltage?

Best to test it yourself.

Depends on HP sensitivity and taste.

I think high gain is more aggressive and possibly adds a bit more dynamic range.

planning to order E11 to drive my Sennheiser HD600.....shed some light whether it can drive this 300ohm beauty with ease.

E11 works better with lower end HP's (Senns PX100) and IEM's, not as effective with my Senns HD595.  E11 is definitely better than a HP out, regardless the player.

mind posting ur recommendations for an HP amp(excl)? as you own a Senny HD595. Budget oriented(<us$80) and portable like FiiO is ok. ibasso is little costly. just an amp is all i'm looking, not along a built-in DAC.

At that price point the E11 is probably the best bet.  There is a whole thread devoted to this, check out the best sub $100 portable amp shootout.  Not much more than that and the sub $200 amps are significantly better, they are also reviewed in that thread as well.  The HD600 is a really nice HP enjoy.

I would use the E11 with an iPhone 5 and a new ~ $50 IEM, decent model. What should I expect from the AMP? I never used one. Is it only volume, or the sound improve? How? Why? Thanks.

Yes amps can make the volume louder, so be careful with those IEM's,  beyond that they can significantly improve the quality of what you listen to, assuming the sound source is decent.

It doesn't need an amp to drive an $50 IEM.it's like 2 stages of volume booster(output gain) then....said that SQ is little improved even on some shy IEMs for sure, like detail etc BUT not as good as heard on an BD DT 770/880/990,Senny HD580/600/650/700/800 and models alike...... It's all headphone Impedance that matters to invest an HP amp to drive any power-hungry-headphones. if u own E11 already stretch ur budget for a mid-tier IEM (portable) or studio/pro grade HPs for home. it's solely ur personal preference and how it bites ur wallet.

PS:using AMP,some/most IEMs susceptible to distortion even at moderate volumes or above and also hiss because their sensitivity/VC design.
