The way I assumed it happened was the micro to mini cable sends the signals from the phone too the Fiio, than the Fiio re-amps and re-dacs it. 

 

Well, there is no such a thing as "re-DAC", and of course you are getting an amped signal from the headphone-out. It is what it is designed for, an USB DAC + headphone amp in one unit.

Appreciate the help and clarifications everyone, Paired the E07K up with my Yamaha EPH -100s. The audio experience was far and away better than just listening through my GS3.

They share the similar amp excelt the E07K comes with an extra WM8740 DAC that plays up to 92/24.

Hope it helps!

Note that they are similar in the sense that they both use a gain + buffer stage topology and has the same opamp in gain stage, but the buffer stage are not the same headphone driver chip. They also employ two different implementation of volume control and EQ. So they are not identical sounding.
