I have HFI 580 and drive them with Lumia920 and Rockboxed SansaClip+
Would the FiiO E11 be a noticeable step up regarding SQ and Volume level?
Mind if I inquire as to what it does?
EDIT: Hmm it appears to be a second high-low switch. Mine is set to high by default.
High gain-Low gain to be exact.
My suggestion if you have tougher HP's to drive, most over the head or on the ear HP's, high gain.
IEM's low gain to improve sensitivity.
That's not a gain switch, but high / low power. Like the name suggested, it changes how much power the amp is able to pump out. Set it to high for best performance and low for best battery life.
My bad, gain switch and bass booster are on the outside and high/low power on the inside under the battery.
Thanks a lot for your answer,I just ordered E11,found it for $49 shipped from Hong Kong. I hope it is genuine.
I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina so ebay was the only way to get it.
I have to say that I have owned some nice small headphone amps in the past and for the sound and money the Fiio e 11 wins best value and sound by a landslide. It very nicely opens the sound stage and is light and turns cheap headphones into sounding great and good cans better. Bottom line WOW!
