I have the E18, had the E11 and was about to order the E17 -- guess if I'm interested in hearing your opinion. As for headphones to test with, have fun with that Sony of yours. ;)

I will for sure post  about it  and indeed the Sony is actually the one I use the most but I do plan to try with all of them just in case. :)

Got my e18 yesterday. Nice little unit. Larger soundstage and more details compared to the onboard dac of my Lg g2. But one little problem showed up. I can't turn of the screen with the power button while playing music. Not a big problem as I can double tap the screen to turn it off. Other than that we're getting along just fine.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

I got the same problem, lower and increase the volume, thereafter you can use your power button to off the screen

Everyone wondered what was up with my unshaven face and plate of biscuits lol

So if you have a Note 3 when you use this turn of emergency assistance in the settings. ...

 


Exactly the same problem here on a Samsung Galaxy S4!! Apart from the unshaven face and the biscuits ;)

 

The problem is that i "have" to use the emergeny assistance, so i hope an FW update will come sometimes...btw using Rev. B and Android 4.3

Holy crap...I'll remind myself to turn that off if need be, or at least, make myself presentable before I hook it up.

It should be a no-brainer.and then I started to look into it a bit more and people were complaining about all sorts of things like the DAC section sounded cold, the amp was weak, interference when it was being used for it's specifically intended purpose and incompatibility problems with various versions of android.

I think I'm just going to go for the E12 to be honest. It potentially won't give me quite such a boost in sound quality as the E18 might but I know it'll work.

I've been using my E18 with the MotoX, Note 3 and macbook retina without any major issues at all. Nothing dramatic and nothing that cannot be fixed with a little quick restart of the phone. You have to realize that only people who have issues will post generally, no-one comes here to say "OH MINE IS PERFECT, THANK YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY!". I still go by this, if you have a solid DAC or plan to get one to use exclusively then the E12 is your bet. If you want to use the DAC mobile/laptop wise then E18 is your best bet. What you forgetting is that the the E12 connects via 3.5mm jack not USB so there's no issues, you can connect the E18 via the 3.5mm jack as well and not have to worry about any of the issues people are saying they are having either. Buy from a place you can return the device to, and order both if you can. Try it for yourself and see which one suits you best.

I'm going to wait for the E18 to come back in to stock on Amazon and buy it then. March 18th they're saying. I can't seem to find it anywhere else.

It works well with an Android devince and Neutron. :D  Is your Android device on the E18 happy list and can run USB Audio without any special apps like USBAPP?
