Fiio E18 - Page 96

post #1426 of 2224

Yes mine works...sort of.  Often I have to connect and reconnect several times to get them to work together.  On every time that they do work, when I've finished I have to reboot the phone because the firmware is all messed up...I can't just switch the phone off in the usual way, I have to hold on the power button for about 15 seconds...so compatibility is a definite issue...

Is this a Note 3 you're talking about? If so, what version of Android are you running?

Sorry no...this was supposed to be a reply to a post about an HTC One running KitKat

No problem. I think there is supposed to be an issue with Sense & OTG USB. Whatever the issue is I can assure you its not fault of Fiio. Mobile phone manufacturers have totally failed to see the desire for their customers to use their phone as a legitimate hi-fi component. I mean, HTC have come closest in as much as they've done their homework as regards the sound from the phone's in-built speakers, but what about headphones?

Why don't any of the phone manufacturers market a "HiFi Phone"? It could have a high-speed DAC with a high quality amplifier and a button marked "Blow Yer Mind!" Hitting this switch would automatically put the phone on do not disturb, shut down all antennae and radio equipment, shut down all unnecessary running processes and put the RAM into Hog Mode. And a decent battery.

They dont want that though. They want you to pay to access music, even your own (via cloud services). And if you're paying for it already what's the point in them offering a phone that would actually still have a use long after iOS or Android have moved on. You'd never buy another phone, at least, not as often as they have us do now.

Perhaps FiiO could fill us in on how this works.

The charger cuts off after the battery is full. smily_headphones1.gif

Is the bass boost the same on the E18 and E12?

No it is not. Look at the curves on Fiios charts posted on their site under each product.

Note that the frequency axis goes down to 20Hz on the E12 plot but 10Hz on the E18 plot.

Also note that the E12 graph isn't centered on 0dB. If it is, it should be fairly close to that of E18.

All things considered, they seem to look similar..

Hello to everybody!

 

This thread is very long and probably you spoke about it earlier.

I just wanted to ask if you think the E18 will drive easily a pair of Beyerdynamic DT880?

 

Thank you!!
