Spot on Zorrofox.

 

I received my Theorem 720 today and so far only UAPP works with my LG G2 (4.2.2) and HTC One X. With FiiO E18, all music apps and other apps like Youtube, etc works with the devices mentioned earlier. This is how 'friendly' E18 is to Android devices.

Thx for the input, wgkwgk. I'm pretty much sold on the Fiio E18 although the 02 amp dac has held my interest this afternoon, despite being a lot more expensive.

Got my e18 today...worked perfect on galaxy note 3 and galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition and on computer...using Hifiman RE 400 and they are sounding amazing

For all those hearing any annoying noise it's probably to do with lower version of android ... KitKat has flawless support for usb audio and in general for all plug n play device ....

Well, I'm jealous.  Just could not get it to work with my HTC One Kit Kat.  Hopefully I'm in the minority.

Enjoy!

Stock rom.  It's actually a moot point (at least for me) given I've returned my E18.  I could get a song to play but when I tried to use the E18 controls it froze and nothing worked.  I took all of the advice I could find on the forum regarding this issue and no success.  Oh well.

So you only had issues when u used controls on e18 ?

Well if that was it then it's not really a deal breaker but just a minor issue which can be ignored ...the main use of e18 with phone is in dac mode, and if that's working then we got why we bought e18

For me controls also works flawlessly

Hi, I'm relatively new to the world of portable amps having only bought my first (the fiio e11) a couple of months back. I was amazed at the difference it made to all my headphones using a Note 3 as the player and mainly flac source material. However, two months down the line I am hungry for more and want an amp with a dac so I can try the usb audio out function. I want the e18 because I already have positive experiences with the fiio brand, because it has media controls for android that might mean I can strap my device up with the rubber bands and actually use it outside the house and I also like the way it can be used to extend the battery life of my device. I can get one for about £100 and was just wondering if, given the features I have mentioned, if there is anything superior out there for ghe same money? Any recommendations?

Well, for me, if something is supposed to work, it should.  However, of more importance to me is that I listen to music on the HTC One using rdio.  And, with the E12 as an amp for use in my car, it's really all I need.  I have other sources for portable/desktop high-quality listening.

 

As always, YMMV.

The E18 is one of best values if not the the best value that you are going to find, The amp section of the E18 is much better than the E11.

Things will only escalate, so start printing money.

I'm actually loving the E18 purely as an amp! It is an excellent performer.

If the pic is your setup for iPad then you are actually using e18 as dac and not just amp... Using iPad specific usb cable

No, that is incorrect. The USB connection for the DAC is on the other side (bottom).

but for ipod or iphone there is no microusb connector to connect it to e18 microusb dac mode like we can do for android, does this mean idevices can never be use e18 as dac mode.
