Wow, no need to quote the whole first post.

 

Anyway, K450's spec looks to be very easy to drive, so I'll assume there won't be any problem for E11 to drive it at all. The real question is how well the two go together, which unfortunately I don't know.

I worry that if the E11 added with K450,I afraid that the E11 may break the K450 down

>  While E7 can be a little too dry and cold which makes it sounds a little grainy on the top, not the best with analytical sounding headphone. The E11 is just a tad warmer not to fall into the same trap but at the same time not appear to be obviously colored. E11 also has a better bass boost implementation.

 

Would the E11 then be a good match-up for the HifMan RE0?

 

Many thanks ClieOS for all your posts!

As long as you don't turn the amp too loud, the K450 will be fine. Headphone amp is designed to drive headphone, not destroy them wink.gif

Nice review! I'm itching to get an E11 to pair with my current 24ohm XB700 and hopefully the XB1000's later on! Although looking at the specs of both the XB700 and XB1000 would there be any chance of damage to ether? My current E6 is run with the Volume Output at Max, so my source does not die as fast, so I'm wondering if I'll be able to keep my source at about 2/3 volume output and use the E11 to get the volume I want without my going deaf or the headphones breaking!

 

I'm still wondering though if it would be worthwhile to use the E11 as portable and the e7_e9 combo for a non portable source...

I don't see how the e11 could damage them. Also, those headphones don't seem that sensitive, so I don't think they'll be getting too loud too fast, so I don't think you'll go deaf unless you set the output of the e11 at max and you use high gain.

Yep, it is more likely you will damage your hearing before E11 ever going to damage those headphone.

This E11 looks just like what I need for my cheap mp2 player.

I skimmed the thread a little but did see answers to my two questions.

Does the (new) battery (BL-5B) on the E11 need to be drained and recharged a few times to get it to hold more of a charge?

Do BL-5B 1800 mAh batteries work in the E11?

First Q: Yes, but charge it to full first before you drain it. It doesn't get it to hold more charge, just help to condition the battery to full charge.

2nd Q: Any BL-5B battery should work with E11.

hey guys

i got a fiio e11 and it is awesome

so i got a question to ask

i want to get an ATH-SJ55  104 db and 48 ohms

can this amp drive it ?

and how should i know if my amp is strong enough for any other headphone

and my source is cowon i9 with 60 mw output over 16 ohm

thanks

post #867 of 1237

My Superlux HD668b are 98dB and 56 Ohms as well my JVC HA-RX700s are 105dB and 48 Ohms. I have run both with my E11 with no problem. The JVC's are very close in dB and Ohms to the ATH-SJ55s, so I would guess that the E11 would have no problem driving them to your liking. That's just my opinion. Perhaps someone who owns the SJ55s could chime in.

 

Cheers,

Dan

thanks man

i am sure now

but is there a formulla to calculate if the amp is strong enough for any other headphones?

Anyone use the E11 without the LOD? I'm using it with the Samsung Galaxy Note. No lineout in android phones, but I could use my Sony Walkman player and buy the LOD. Currently with the UE TF10s, I can barely tell any difference in sound quality with or without the E11. I'm planning on getting a higher end circumaural soon that will push the limits of the E11 later. Just wondering, should I expect a significant improvement with LOD vs connecting through the 3.5mm out?

Good day 

just want to know if this is good for my Superlux 661? 

'cause I'm planning to get one. :) thanks. :D
