post #3181 of 5105

I got myself an AudioQuest Dragon fly to go with the X1 and it sounds really good, it's going for 89 GBP on amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00882U782/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

 

Edit: Its gone up to 120 GBP on amazon but still around 89 GBP at http://www.richersounds.com/product/dacs/audioquest/dragonfly/audi-dragonfly

Been enjoying my X1s and finally got the extra doe to get myself a Fiio E07K. Not sure if it will play nice with my GS3 or not, but at least I can use it with my computer. if anyone observing this thread uses a GS3 with this model, or knows someone that has a one that works with E07K, please let me know. Thanks!

I order the X1 for $299, get an email that its shipped and in the same email Amazon is like "Hey check out these awesome deals!"

 

HE-400 for sale at $299

X1 for sale at $200

 

Damn you Amazon!

Yes, people have reported that it works, but I'm not sure if you need a special cable.

I don't think it was the X1 that was on sale.  It was probably the L1.  I've made the mistake before and actually called Amazon about it and boy was I embarrassed.:p

The HE-400? I'm wondering if I made the right choice, or should return em and get the HE-400 :p

 

decisions :p

 

Think I'll stick with the X1's though and quit with the choices as I've been weighing in for like 2 years before I broke down and bought a set I hear the HE-400's are heavy! Just hope the X1 can take some (not a huge amount) of beating as I'll be traveling with em.

From how many meters (or feet) can you hear the sound of X1? Just wondering how much it's leaking.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Yeah, I think it does require one. Just not even close to being 100% sure which one to use. A bunch of conflicting and confusing info that I've seen out there. I don't intend to use the E07K as an amp with the phone (don't want to double amp) just the dac part.

Yup, that stuff is great (especially through the X1's!). Perfect music for, yes, chilling! Will be great for falling asleep to. Thanks!

Modi perhaps? Or the HiFiMe DIY Sabre DAC? $99/$50 respectively.

If your source is a computer USB, possibly the Dragonfly.  Just dropped from $250 to $99.  Killer bargain.

It does work, i have a galaxy s3 with e07k and its just plug-and play. I use this OTG microUSB - USB cable i found on ebay.

Going to use it primarily on PC, but some on the iPad and a little on the SGSIII. They sell the Dragonfly for $150-200 here. You don't think E07K wil give more for the money as it is bigger and battery-powered?

How do you think the E07K sound with X1? If you have those headphones, of course.

Modi takes $35 for shipping so I think that's ruled out. Do you think the HiFiMe DAC is enough?
