FiiO E6 - story of the tiny amp continues... (w/ review on 1st page) - Page 34

post #496 of 547

Thank you for response. I'm using e200 Rockboxed and got used on enjoying my Phonak PFE 112 (gray filters, volume on -3, bass on +7, treble on +5). While E6 is doing wonders to listen them with my cellphone or PC, so far I'm liking the no EQ option for Phonak with e200, so thats why I asked. It can help sometimes moderately with harsh sound, but it seams like I do lose a bit of clarity on treble, so I wondered about your impressions. :)

The instructions say that it has to be plugged into a laptop or pc to charge. Does anyone know if it's harmful to plug it in to charge in a usb wall plug charger?

Also, my (replacement) e6 seems to charge for a short period of time before the red light turns off. Does anyone know if this means that the device is done charging. I wouldn't assume so considering that it was such a short time frame.

Help! I love this thing but after my first one kicking the bucket I wanna make sure it's not operator error. Thanks

I charge mine with a wall plug...no problems noted. Red light goes off when done charging, but it takes a little while (depends on how run down it is).

Yes you can very well connect to wall charger.....there are no problems.

Reg. The battery charge»»» I suggest you do a full discharge of the battery by using it for 10-12hours.let it drain out completely. Now connect to charger and check the charging time.

It seems that, You probably didnt drain the battery completely but connected to usb charging that has more power still unused and yiu get the fully charged status within minutes.And you use the E6 again just for a while say about 2 hours here and there and you charge it and the cycle goes on.....

Does this have enough power to amp from line out on an iPod classic? Debating grabbing one but don't see a great deal of point if I'm just running it off the headphoen output.

Yes, it has as much oomph as the e7, e17 ect, just in smaller form. This thing is an awesome portable rig, it's light enough to suspend without the clip. It'll make your music richer and fuller. Ipod, Android, and iPhone will all benefit from this little guy.

What headphones will you be using with them?

post #503 of 547

Primarily JVC FX850s which have a 16ohm impendance, provided i get on with them when they arrive anyway!

 

Occasionally Audio Technica A900s which are 40Ohm

you better use an LOD cable than using HO. And i recommend E11 if you can stretch your budget. That being said E06 is not a bad candidate and cant go wrong with its size either,but E11 has little more advantages like matching size to piggy back with classic/touch,replacebale bl-5b battery,analogue alps pot and gain.....E11 a budget HP amp but can handle any IEMs and HPs with ease upto 300ohms.

Will this work with headphones that have mic and volume control ? Can I still control the music and answer calls ? With my headphones plug in to this ?

A few days back i got a 'Westone'  E6 bundled with a replacement Westone 3 package.

 

Decided to give it some use i ended up bringing it to the gym to power my gym iems (SE215) thru the iPod Classic line-out.

 

Results if not as nice as the iBasso T3 are very enjoyable. Actually i find it an improvement over the very decent Classic 7G headphone out.

 

Performance to price ratio is really high for this tiny thing.

 

Very nice for driving low impedance earphones at a very low cost. It tends to be the other way around these days.

Do NOT follow his advice, it is incorrect for batteries in lithium ion devices. The E6 has a lithium battery and as such has no "battery memory." Repeated full discharges of this type of battery will actually damage it and reduce it's lifespan.

What Shawn is suggesting here applies to older nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride batteries, they had this charge memory effect. Lithium ion does not and repeatedly discharging the battery completely will wear it out.
