I wonder if they can implement something in the E07K's firmware so that allows the user to manuall stop it from drawing power from the battery.  (when plugged into a PC or Macbook USB port)


Why would you want that? The battery always provides much cleaner power than the noisy power from a main board.

Good point!   

 

Wait... are you saying that the E10K has this problem? (since it draws power directly from the PC's USB oprt)

Not really. Just most PC's USB port has that issue. Some don't. I find that my upgraded Dell Inspiron i3647 has much cleaner power. Mac's USB port are pretty clean too. smily_headphones1.gif

I have the E07K.  Happy with the sound.  Not so happy with the battery life when using it with my HTC Desire 816 android phone.

Has anyone figured out a way to run the E07K with a phone so that it charges like it can when connected to a PC via USB? (setting the "USB Charge" menu to "On")

 

I'm thinking that maybe I can use a USB y-type cable or adapter to both feed the E07K power from an external battery or AC charger while it's connected to the phone.  If this is either not due-able or not cost effective then I guess I can dump the E07K and pickup up an E18 for that extra hour of battery run time.

 

Thank you for any help in advance.

I just found this on USB Audio Recorder Pro's website.  I guess this will power the whole circuit and thus both charge the phone and the EO7K?

 

 

if you need to give your audio device extra power, you can either use a powered USB hub or this OTG-Y cable:

This cable is similar to a standard USB OTG cable with a full sized female USB connector on the end that connects to the audio interface, but it branches off into 2 connectors on the other end. One is a standard male micro USB connector for connecting to the android device and the other is a female micro USB connector. The female micro USB connector allows the ability to plug in a standard male micro USB wall charger to inject power into the circuit. http://www.extreamsd.com/USBAudioRecorderPRO/

Since I will only be using it on the Macbook Air, should I keep the E07K or try the E10K?

 

Just wondering which one has the better sound. Or is it too close to call?
