If you move the balance all the way to the one that the side that does not work is there any sound coming from it? Did you try another LO cable to see if that might be the culprit. Just a couple of guesses.

I tried it with two different aux cables and different sets of headphones to no avail, but after draining and then recharging the battery it's working normally again.  I actually forgot there's a reset button I could've tried because I've never had to reset it before - I still don't know for sure if draining/recharging is what fixed it or if it was something internal that just got shaken up and then resettled.  Thanks for the help anyway though.

I know this is off topic but I really need some answer from you guys, does the e07k support the ipad/ipad 2?

You would probably get a better answer asking that in an E7 thread...

Is there a silicone case or leather case I can buy for the E17.

I really don't think so, if you go to a store that sells camera cases they work really great for amp and daps.

Will the Fiio E17 work with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0? If so what cables would I need?

is the Fiio E17 in the same league as the new DragonFly?

Feature wise the E17 is vastly superior, but I haven't heard the Dragonfly so I can't comment about the sound.

Using what player?
My GT-9506 does not recognize the e17 without a powered hub and custom player...
post #6478 of 6617

what do you mean by recognize? As in it won't play with the e17 connected? I'm not sure about the microusb input, but aux should probably work on all devices. As for a custom player, which one do you use? 

 

On a side note, I'm so glad this thing is built durable. Dropped it more times than I'd like to mention and it still works perfectly fine, though it's suffered a few minor scratches.
