I like Fiio e18 but is seems amp has a chronic problems like DAC's static or RF interference on amp section,

I keep reading some Youtube and head-fi comments but i can't see any solution for this problems also it looks to me this problems not %100 chronic, some people very happy with this device.

what do you think, is still purchasable


When I stack it with the phone I get some interference, If I don't stack it, I don't get interference. That works when it's I a computer bag or some larger case, not so much if you want to fit it all in your pocket. When it's behaving, it's very good.

Yeah. It's the same for most of us. When you stack it on your phone you'll get some interference, even if the phone is not the source. However, move it a little further away and it disappears.If you're desperate, try putting something between the phone and the E18 to use as shielding (tinfoil? idk). Also; a $300 cable is almost certainly never worth it.

That cable is certainly worth it.....to the seller. :wink_face:

The noise also depends on your phones. It's very present on some of my iem's but it's non existent on others. I can say I don't hear it ever on any of my planar headphones.

I don't think the interference has anything to do with your IEMs or headphones. Perhaps you are referring to the SNR of the E18 being more evident when using. sensitive IEMs.

That's actually exactly what Im saying. It does vary based on sensitivity. The radio interference. At least for me with my Note 5. It absolutely is inaudible of my T50rp MK3's or my 400i's.

Lol. Seriously. It's is literally not there on those two headphones. And I don't always listen quietly. Volume 7 is about high as is possible without getting tinnitis afterwards but it's not there. Not is it there at volume 3 and that's about as quiet as I can go and not have channel imbalance from the amp. Used as amp DAC. YMMV burnt lid you can try it with thou we headphones. Them maybe you won't be as doubtful.

I listen a bit on the loud side and when it happens I can hear it on anything I have attached, HD600's, HE-500's, just about anything. When I don't sandwich, things are much better.
