FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 4

post #46 of 1407

I just receive mine. I check everything and left the headphone jack last on the check list ...... everything was working perfectly except the headphone jack and it is both of them.... It dont have the click/lock on feel, and when i lift it up, it doesnt even support the e07k weight. They are extremely loose and when i plug in my IEM and He-400 (tested each on both jack) only the left hand driver is working~ sigh and today is saturday..... Out of the 10 preorder unit only mine was faulty darn!!!

That was the opposite for me. Mine were very tight. The E07K uses FiiO's new headphone sockets. Might it be an error?! Well if it truly is loose then that is a horrible thing indeed. Left Channel?

 

Did you push it all the way in? Your headphone jack that is?

I can also confirm that all the 3.5mm jack on my E07k are the new version and pretty tight.

Just took the plunge and ordered this off Amazon thru Micca Distributor, $94 w/ shipping. Can't wait

If the PMP has a line out like SOME(not all) Sony's have or like an iPod, then you can bypass that devices headphone amp(s) and just use E07K's. DAC will not be used.

 

If a device supports USB OTG and has software kernel support for digital audio output or if it just has digital audio output then it SHOULD (not always) be able to use both DAC and amp of E07K. But WARNING, be careful. If the powerdraw of E07K is higher than device supports then it will not work. The above posts on the Samsung being able to do it or not is on this problem as well as which kernels currently work. 

Thanks. I don't think it does, I checked the latest firmware and what they do, nothing states support for digital audio output, I will still audition it though. Only $20 difference from the E17 from my go to shop, I will check out the difference myself using my laptop as source.

the headphone jack of the E07K is tighter than other audio device like Galaxy S1/2/3 , note 1,2,3 iPhone, iPod,  

 

may there are one possibility that you have not plug the headphone jack into the socket to the end, please double check it again.

Thanks FiiO/feiao for the information.

 

My [E07K] has been ordered.  I was also hoping to buy the [Samsung Galaxy S III] soon as well.  Any info on supporting this device in the future would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

 

I am new in this great forum and new in the headphone world.

 

 

I am going to buy the E07k but it is not clear to me if the DAC is a real 24bit-96khz when connected to a computer as specified on the FIIO web site. This is because I suspect the TI USB receiver PCM2706 accepts 16bit-48khz at most. Am I right?

 

 

Thank you

That is a valid question. I am not sure how FiiO is using it. If they are just using the USB decoding feature of the chip and not the DAC(which only supports 48KHz and 16 bit) or is it upconverting. I will guess that they are just using the USB decoding part of it and not its own stereo DAC built in. Let's wait for James at FiiO to answer

 

Edit: Just noticed you are new

I tested it through the line input connector (that was the description on the manual) and also through usb OTG.

I have only listen to it briefly, so i dare not give any impression. I am using it for my deskstop atm :P 

All i can say (on my desktop setup) that it has slight more bass impact as compared with my s3.

I see you've found FiiO's signature. 

 

They are pretty universal but FiiO units from my experience have a bit more of an affinity with bass. I guess it's much more universal for a bigger audience. I like all the parts of the fr range so I'm fine with it.

 

 

Update:

E07K review has been delayed due to various circumstances.

I have too much work due in the next week.
