Fiio E18 - Page 75

post #1111 of 2236
Seriously? You can't tell a difference with those headphones? Do you have dither on? And crossfeed?

Really? There are plenty of useful settings i Neutron. If you like a controlled bass boost, learn to use the parametric EQ is not easy to use, but can do amazing things or cause a lot of trouble if you don't use it properly. This is a complex piece of software with a rotten UI. Got to learn how to use it.

AW: Fiio E18

I 2nd StanDs opinion.

Most of my stuff is standard flac 16/44. Those sound equal on Neutron and USB Pro making Neutron the preferable player for me as I wish to make use of the E18 hardware buttons and like to have cover art displayed.

My few 24/88 flacs actually sound better with Neutron compared to USB Pro. Don't ask me why, but it is perceivable.

My 24/96 flacs seem to sound equal again. At least I can not perceive decisive differences between the USB Pro and Neutron...

Unless you use a digital volume control it is most likely that you will not hear a difference between 16 and 24 bit, unless you really want to. I turn up the volume on my S3 all the way and use the volume pot on the E18.

Thought i'd share some of my pics.

i've only been using the E18 for a few days now. I ended up upgrading the cable on my 3.5yr old SE535s at the same time as getting the E18 so the combination is giving me very clear, bright audio, and hopefully with the filter mod i can get it exactly the way i want. So to the E18, i'm actually using with the Note 3 (T-Mo, rooted) and the stock player most of the time. I tried the Neutron player and its def. nice, but i couldn't tell too much of a difference in sound but then again haven't played around with it too long, also like the fact that i can control the music using my galaxy gear so i'd have to give that up with the newtron, and S-view window control :-) so it didn't seem worth the minimal increase in sound, at least not for regular commute/gym listening. 

 

I'm also using it as an analog amp for my cowon j3 and i think so far that's where it has been able to shine the most. The Cowon J3 has an amazing DAC and EQ but like all its players just lacks the power to run my grado's or even the SE535s apparently. With high sensitivity although low resistance i figured it wouldn't be too much of a difference driving the IEMs but using the e18 as an amp i can definitely hear the difference in clarity and punchier bass. 

 

Heres a few pics of the cowon J3 setup sure you've all seen the Note 3 with the E18 :-)

 

Edit: for some reason its saying i don't have access to the page when i click on add picture. :-S

hopefully this works .

For some reason they still don't even know is been released. I have a corporate account with them so usually get a discount and tax breaks so was waiting for them a looong time but got tired and just bought from headphone shop on Young St. The only other authorized dealer in Toronto.

I got mine from a local shop called Headphone Bar. They have a website and also do online shipping orders within Canada. $159.99 not bad price from them.

My E18 has ben lost in shipping. It dissapeared in Denmark on its way to Sweden. Guessing it will take a while until I get to play with one.

That is unfortunate Trenne, I hope you are not waiting too long.

 

They seem to be unavailable in the UK at the moment. I think I was lucky to get mine straight away when I ordered it.

Mine was sent to me from Uztore AB even though I ordered it from UK.

So I've been having some issues with flac 16bit songs skipping, hiccups and glitches when using the E18 and USB Audio Player Pro app. I'm using a Samsung S3 (I747M) model with Jelly Bean 4.3 and otg cables supplied with E18. I've emailed developers about this but they could not fix my issues with UAPP. So I'm back to using the stock Android music app for now. Just curious if anyone else having similar issues and if there is any SQ diff using stock music app vs other choices when E18 is doing the dac/amp process?

You should be able to use PowerAmp or Neutron with the GS3 and E18.

Would I be able to use Neutron with the E18 coupled to a Galaxy Note 3?
post #1123 of 2236
Is there any SQ difference using Poweramp or Neutron va stock Android app if I'm passing the digital audio out to E18 to do the DAC/Amp work?
If there is no sonic diff I am hesitant to pay to use those 3rd party apps unless there are real advantages. I guess maybe one advantage is playing 24bit flacs?

I believe I answered this only a page or two back. Yes. I have Verizon note 3. Works out of the box with everything from poweramp, stock player, neutron, Google play music, and UAPP.

Nice! I might just buy one of these if I can find one in the UK.
