I'm sure if you search around you'll find posts where people have mentioned the jacks failing. That cable is a right angle plug, so it shouldn't be too awful bad tension-wise, but when you have a nice sounding rig like that, it's worth taking care of. smile.gif

Great review mate!

I got my FiiO E11 earlie this week and I'm quite astonished by the sound quality at it's current price. They definitely did something right. biggrin.gif

Also, I'm thinking of purchasing this Genuine Nokia battery from Amazon... the price is good and reviews are amazing.

Or maybe this one is worth a shot:

Doubt it will be truly that mAh capacity though.

You read my mind

Great review! I too have the E11, but I question its build quality. My problem is that when I first got the E11, I thought it was fantastic, being it was my first portable amp, but it soon ended when it had a shortage. So I thought it was probably nothing since everyone goes through something like this. The warranty was still good so I was able to send it to the company I bought it from, Micca Distributor, and had it fixed without paying full price, paid $20. Once they sent me a new unit, I thought I was good, but now I'm facing issues again. Every time I listen to my I-Pod with the amp using a LOD, I would only get sound from the right side of my headphone. At first I thought it was just the headphones, but as I tried with other 'phones and IEMs I would get the same results. So then I thought it was my I-Pod, which I doubted. Turns out it wasn't as I tried using the amp with my phone, brother's phone, and my computer, I did the same with the LOD since I had different types of LODs. The warranty is still good, but they request that I pay $20 for the whole shipping and handling, so if I send the unit, I would have spent $40 on the E11. My only concern is that it may give out on me again and my warranty expires in about a month. I don't want to risk having a broken E11 again without warranty. So I've been checking around and I want to know if I should send it back and have it fixed or upgrade to another amp. I'm leaning toward to upgrading and I'm wondering what would be a good upgrade from the E11. I use an I-Pod classic with a L9 and at times L3 while listening with the MDR-V700s (might get Allen&Heath Xone XD-53). I wont go any further than $200. Also I listen to any kind of genre, but mostly rap, rock, metal, trance, and electronic. Thanks for everything!

Sorry to hear your having a lot problems with your e11. Never happened to me.... If Haven't check yet try check if the lod is the problem and not the amp. also what might be causing the problem is the jack on your amp. The inside of the input jack might of worn off and has a bad connection. Love the amp ive been using it for a year without any problems

I already checked and it wasn't the LOD. I guess I'm going to have to gamble to see if the next one will work for me. Third times the charm, right?

What you say isn't happening here either, well not since I've had the amp. Which is only about a week and a half.

I advise to gamble for the third one mate, I would. wink.gif

They are just that good value for the price.

I have had my e11 for more than a year without any problems.  I had however an odd problem with my e5.  The plug on my HP would not fully engage with the HP jack on the e5.  I thought the e5 was broke as the sound coming out of the amp was distorted.  The plug was 2/3rd's in and I thought it was completely in but it wasn't.  I was able to force the plug into place with some effort and the little amp made enough difference I moved up to the e11.  The e11 is cheaper now than when I originally bought it.  Good bang for the buck, but only if it works.

i have never used an amp but am getting some new headphone for xmas this year and have thought about taking the leap.  i am strictly a portable listener.  when i travel and fly is when i do 95% of my music listening so closed headphones are a must.  i think i am going to get some AKG K167s, but anyway, i wondered if the e6 would even do enough to justify my purchase.

 

then i started thinking e7 and then e11.

 

i love the idea of the silicone band since i play my music on an ipod classic and again, i need as portable a rig i can make it...but do you think the e11 fits my needs best?

Is this the best bang for the buck? The jack of all trades, master of none option? I really don't want to spend more than $70ish but also don't want to buy if it won't make enough difference.

Sorry to heard about that, please contact the dealer to get warranty service, we had sold out about 100,000 pcs E11, even 0.5% defective rate means 500 pcs faulty unit.

 

Next year, all our amp will change to new headphone jack and used the new battery supplier. it does means we can change the products, but it can decrease the defective rate from 1% to 0.5% or even less because currently

 

the headphone jack, battery is the main issues. 

 

Anyway, we will keep working to improve the quality control and our design,and change to some high quality suppliers.

The AKG K167s is not a very hard to drive headphones, and since your audio source is iPod Classic, E11 will more suitable for you and the output power of E11 is big enough to drive the AKG K167.
