FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 87

post #1291 of 1303
You are supposed to switch off everything for that 30min or so what xD if anything, you can secretly do so... I know some who needs to listen to headphone while landing and taking off if not, their ear will not feel comfortable although I personally find it is just a excuses haha

Delta allows use of ipad, iphones, and tablets in general in airplane mode during take off and landing.  Though the  use of a DAC is in a grey area; most likely it would be viewed as an iphone.  So the keyboard has to go unused during the take off period.

 

Suppose I could use the E07 as an amp and not as a DAC during this time period.

Quick question about using the Fiio E07k that may come down to personal preference:

 

Do you guys max the volume on your source device before setting the volume on the Fiio or do you balance the two?

 

For example, I can set my laptop to 100% and then use the Fiio at about a 16-20 volume, or I can set my laptop to 50% and use the Fiio at closer to 30.  I'm not sure if it makes any sort of a difference at the end of the day, though maybe battery life is affected.

 

 

Thanks.

When connected to laptop, it is supposed to bypass both its DAC and amp and using E07K's DAC/amp. It is just that James @ FiiO was worried some new comers are not used to it, thus you could still adjust the volume via laptop instead of E07K. It doesn't really makes a different at all.

 

UNLESS

 

You are double amping your phone then that's a different story. Set the volume on your phone to MAX and rely on E07k's volume setting

 

Hope it helps

Billson

 

PS: Protect your hearing! Don't forget to remove headphone while turning your laptop volume to 100% in case you forgot to lower the E07K volume first xD haha

If you used the Fiio LOD cable (sold separately) then changing the volume on your iPod has no effect at all you are supposed to control via the e07k. However, if you are using the normal 3.5mm cable then I would suggest you leave device to 100% and control volume via the amp.

iOS 7.1.1 NOt compatible with E07k through CCK USB?

 

After update, I cannot pair them.

 

I have trial to pair iphone 5s with other DACs, it works fine, and then I connect e07k to my mac and it works fine too.

 

Whats the problem here?

post #1299 of 1303
Which specific DAC are you talking about @.@ sorry. But it is definitely saddling to hear the bad news frown.gif have you tried switching off "USB charge" in E07K?
post #1300 of 1303

Yup I did. I use mine E07K everyday.

"other dacs" that works fine with CCK are NAD D3020 and the internal DAC in B&W mm1.

post #1301 of 1303
My thought (based on my limited knowledge) is probably because the E07K requires more power from the iPad and that the iPad may not be able to achieve? What message does it pops up when it doesn't work?

Sorry, can't help much frown.gif

E07k worked fine with previous iOS7.

 

iOS 7.1.1 was release 2 days ago.

post #1303 of 1303
Off topic, but is it working fine? I was aware that it was released. Wasn't dared to upgrade mine to that as my iPad2 and iPhone 4 is considered old to the Apple family, worried it will slow down or affect their performance :/
