Do you think I am asking too much?


That actually makes sense!
I would agree with that!
Problem is, too many guys on the Science Fiction Forum seem to think their interpretation is The One And Only Interpretation.  I wonder if they are all religious talk show hosts in there spare time?wink_face.gif
It will be released soon on a site update.

Haha that is pretty funny but yes. Scientific journal updates need to be with objective stuff by interpreation is diff

I just got my e17 and it is wicked! Opens my srh840's so much! One little problem I have is with the headphone output jack though. It seems like my headphones can't fit in all the way. It goes in to get the signal, but it doesn't click in place so when I move around it wiggles out a little bit and loses the connection. Is this normal?

I don't know about clicking into place though? It depends, the jack should go all the way to the bottom

yah it feels like its at the bottom of the Fiio, but the hole seems kind of shallow because when I plug the headphones into my iPod it goes in further and clicks in. idk maybe it's just these headphones...

Up until now (i've had the E17 since day 1) i've only used this little big boy as a DAC (docked on my E9) to go with my EF5. I'm totally happy with what i have right now but i was curious as to what a full sized DAC could do to bring out my EF-5 and DT990/K702 so i decided to post a listing. I didn't get any responses for the first few days and within those days i managed to pick up a decent optical cable from a buddy of mine. Then it hit me...while i was playing Uncharted 3 on my PS3 through my wireless sony headphones (they sound like crap but i never really cared how detailed the sound could be when i game) I had remembered that the PS3 has an optical input. So hey why the heck not...i plugged in the optical cable from the PS3 to the E17 docked on my E9. I started the game (uncharted 3) and i didn't notice anything too special (still on start screen) then when i was actually in the game...this is when EVERYTHING changed. At first he spoke and i could hear him loud and clear and when i started moving the assisting characters followed behind me and when they said something i honestly thought someone was right behind me speaking to me and it took me by surprise and i actually turned around to check but only realized it was the awesome sound stage. I was so blown away by how detailed it was...as the side characters spoke i turned my character around in circles and i kid you not...the voices were spiraling in a 360 degree motion around my head. Every step i took, every step the side characters took i knew exactly where they were whether they were to my left, my right, on top, below...it's just overwhelming how much your gaming experience can improve. I honestly felt like i was drake himself when i played uncharted 3. In the end i decided to keep my E17 =).

 

I've shown you guys my setup before but i've made some small minor changes. My only  gripe (this is just being REALLY REALLY picky and i have no problem with this) is that i can't use the USB and Optical function simultaneously so i can game and use my computer at the same time. But hey i'm still happy regardless.

sorry to quote such a lengthy (and old) post.

after connecting the PS3 and E17, which headphones did you use? Was it still the Sony Wireless Headset?

I dont want to tell you to force it in there, but I dont think you have it inserted all the way in. The E17 jacks are quite tight. It is a very solid tight click when it's fully inserted.

Too bad that can't be said for my Aux/Line-In connector.  :(

Some E17 jacks are tight and others aren't. FiiO noticed that this was a problem which many had problems with so they set aside $10,000 USD( a lot for Chinese company) to fix the jack issue. And they did. The new E07K uses FiiO's new designed and manufacturered TRS 3.5mm stereo design. Very tight and nice. 

I didn't have any problems with the E17 but the jacks on the E07K just feel really nice.

Great! 

 

I find the products drop down menu to be very cramped.

 

Well, I guess you guys can now see the output voltages and currents for yourself

 

James, you said that E07K has half the power of the E17 but I can not see that from the specs listed, can you explain? I guess it does matter to the E17 so it is on topic.

There are very few FiiO's old products will have problem about the headphone jack, but it is not a very big quality issues so we have to recall all our products, it means about 1,000,000 units, so we will solve the problem by better warranty service. 

 

just hope our customer don't worry about that, nothing to worry because it is happened in few unit or sometimes it is because customer have not bundle it correctly or use some very big and heavy headphone plug.

 

Anyway, we will keep improving the quality control and changing our suppliers and parts constantly.

I hope you mean that you DON'T have to recall 1 million units lol!!!! tongue.gif

 

We do hear of jack issues in the E17 thread. I'll put up a page on near complete how to get help or fix FiiO issues or what to do when I write up my E07K review. I hope it will reduce questions and also streamline everything.

Thank you very much. From what I can see, E17 has just slightly more voltage and current than E07K. Very nice actually.

Yah it was my mistake. It felt solid down there and when I forced it a bit and it didn't go in, I didn't want to wreck anything but i just needed to push a bit harder :)
