Fiio E18 - Page 87

post #1291 of 2224
Emailed Fiio about the micro usb otg cables. Pay 5$ via paypal and they will ship two new cables. My cables lasted two weeks. Hoping I got bad ones and that the new cables last a little longer.

So far I've only been using one of two I have but it already feels looser in both sockets. Not a good sign.

PORTABLE HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER

All-new headphone amp tuning and longer run-time:
the E18 can function as outboard headphone amp for mobile music enjoyment with any source,
including all Androids, iDevices and DAPs.

 

This is on FiiO's website and it was mentioned in this thread that the E18 didn't work with idevices. So what does this mean?

Edit: Whoops I missed the part where it said "headphone amp". I realize that the e18 only functions as an amp with iDevices.

 FiiO is very quick to reply indeed as I needed their support and they were really helpful.

I seem to recall someone earlier aging problems with Nexus devices be i'm not sure if those problems were ever sorted. Try searching through the thread.

When the volume on my E18 is around 4-5 or more, and no Analog/USB source is connected I can hear very faint tick sounds (almost once every second). This happens when I connect my SE846 to the earphones plug (not present on the line out). It is not noticable when music is palyed.

 

Please advice.

 

edit: Problem dissapeared after pressing the RESET button

The e18 works with my ipad and iphone 5s through the usb. So, not only as an amp.

I think it's because ios 7.

Are you sure? How can you tell?

Anybody having problems with the physical connection between mobile phone and E18?

I have Galaxy Note 3 connected by cable supplied with the Fiio E18.

The first supplied cable has stopped working and the second (supplied cable) looks like it is heading that way. Bending the cable for "on the go" use (with supplied band holding the two units together) seems to stress on the cable connection, with first signs being a sensitivity to any touch/movement of the connecting cable - resulting in loosing connection or music jumping to next song/track etc. just walking with it in my pocket.

Not a happy "on the go" outcome, as that is how I use the Note3/E18 95% of the time.

However, sound is good with units separated and laying flat on a surface - even if I don't listen that way.

Anybody have any recommendations or solutions?

Thanks

Frank

I'm using the same gear as you are but so far I haven't had your problem. I think I will though because I've noticed recently there's definitely more play in the sockets. Someone really needs to make something with plugs at a 90deg angle. That would at least shorten the amount sticking out the bottom but it's far from ideal. ALO make such a cable (Copper 22) but it costs a fortune.

I do have a solution to the daft rubber bands covering the touchscreen. It's a couple of pages back and at least guarantees that the two hardware units are solidly linked.

It's a real shame because the GN3 itself makes for an excellent media player.

What headphones are you using? My V-Moda don't actually need the E18 for amp duty. My AKG Q701's do though.
