FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought - Page 437

I randomly forget to engage the Hold switch when I'm carrying it around all day and the battery will drain if it's accidentally turned on. The power button would be better if they had used a similar sliding mechanism to the Hold switch.

With the unit turned off completely and after a week if I power it on, the battery indicator is really low to bare minimum.
Maybe the unit I bought was old stock, since it was completely dead when I received it or the battery is not that great.

After 2 years mine is just starting to get the lose headphone jack problem frown.gif is this an easy fix?

Ok. Just one complaint. It's a bit buggy (FIIO e 17) with the hold button. Sometimes when I'm in or using the AUX imput and push the 'hold feature' on it switches the input selection to USB. It's weird. At first I thought I was accidently hitting the input switch while hitting the hold button, but this is not the case. It's a bit buggy, but not a big deal. Still works very well after 9 months I've had it.

Anybody opened this and installed a better battery? I'm not happy with it, since it's completely dead from the last time I used it, which was a week ago.

I love the UI, and the optical is abig plus but I cant complain for the price.

 

Only if I could put a better battery inside

Have you contacted the seller or FiiO about the battery issue? One or the other should replace it for you.

Did I F up my hearing? I use this on +12 gain and 60 volume (highest on everything) and now I want it to be louder lol.

Hi guys!

 

I know that the E07K can be used as a iPod DAC (even tho its not advertised). I was wondering if the E17 can also work as a iPod DAC but its just not common knowledge. 

 

Thanks!

Use a pointy object?

 

It is designed as such so you can't accidentally change it, or else the sudden jump of volume can deafen the listener.
