I can only assume they attempt to invoke a religious experience by stimulating the temporal lobes as per the "Koren helmet" aka the God helmet.

Sounds like it's gonna take an SR-009 and a high voltage amp to get the job done. The E18 doesn't have enough of a voltage swing.

I don't know about an SR-009 but there's definitely plenty of BS FU 69 swinging around here!

Put a few hours into the e18 last night and seem to have solved the problem. Was initially testing it through my k550's and obviously didn't have a great seal so whacked it on full gain and bass which muddied up the sound. Either that or I was just majorly cranky after work. Later on in the evening with the same cans but low gain and bass off the sound was divine, much wider soundstage, punchy bass and plenty of detail in the highs. The e11's going on eBay if anyone's interested.

OK now the love is happening, paired it with my SR325is and the marriage is a very happy one indeed.

Just noticed that the media buttons only work if I have the music player open on my Note 3. Anyone got a fix?

The only problem with the right angle adapters is that they bring the socket out close to the edge of the device. Then, when you insert the micro USB it juts out so far that you have the same problem with it getting knocked in your pocket.

 

If you're up for a bit of soldering you could buy two OTG cables with right-angled connectors and splice them together.

 

I've used this solution, but I've also put the devices in a case (Samsung S3 and E18) and I'm very happy with the results. I did originally use the E18 with a Note 2 but found the connection arrangements too problematic.

 

Glad you're enjoying the amp.

Can you post the link for this?

Is a pair adaptor, right? Is for usb OTG?

The very short mini usb cable could be the one that comes with the E18?

Hi, no the ones pictured are micro to mini usb but I did find another micro to micro in his listings.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331074939649?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649
Will probably take a while to arrive but at 99p well worth a shot I think.

For info, the pic below shows a Note2 / E18 connected via the right-angle adapters and the supplied OTG cable.

Excellent, thanks for the pic. I think I'll feel a lot happier putting it usb cable down in my pocket. How did this configuration work out for you?

It worked fine, however I only used it like that for a short while before getting the S3 phone and a case to wrap everything up in.

 

While the angled connectors appeared to maintain a more consistent and reliable connection to the phone and amp, I was concerned that any sideways movement on the cable would transfer a lot of force into the connector on the phone in particular and ultimately weaken it. The micro-USB really is a horrible connector for this kind of application, but we have to make do with it.

I totally agree, I never thought I'd sing Apple's praises but their original connector was a beast in comparison.
Just out of interest, you say that you have a case that everything goes in, if you don't mind me asking, where did you buy it? and how does it look/work etc?

Sorry I'm a little confused...

The right-angle adapters in the pic are those posted by lawrecedent some post before?
