FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 48

post #706 of 1458

Decided to take the leap and order the e07k to go with my note2.  Will report to you guys if it woks or not (for me) when I get it.  Strange how it works for some but not others.

Thank you, Fiio!  

So how was it?  Did it ask to cuddle afterwards?

Haha...I'm still looking for an OTG cable, just don't get this,

as someone has suggested in earlier posts. It's the female (not male) at the usb mini end (Amazon refunded and told me to keep it though, so no hurt). Check out some Chinese eBay sellers, they have the right one.

Moment of truth to come later.  My Andes arrived today and I have it charging now.

Kudos to Fiio for adding all these accessories for free. silicone case plus screen protectors are a godsend for me.

Aaaaaand, back to amazon it goes. I'm having the same problems as everyone else :(

I was hoping to be special.

No sound, and music plays in FF. USB OTG cable works fine, I was using my mouse on my phone with it just to check, so it's the DAC :(

It's too bad, I really wanted to like it.

Just in case anyone was wondering, when used as an amp alone, the eo7k puts out a lot more bass than the E11 when both are at full bass boost levels.  I remember not getting the original E7 b/c  I was told the E11 had more bass.

Sorry to hear, my Note II worked first time out (I do admit that some usb cables I got didn't work out, and I'm still searching for a short portable OTG usb).  Wonder what other differences can there be to make this not working for everyone.

Dude, it works. Are you sure you have a OTG cable?

Yup, just ordered that yesterday; and one other Chinese version.  Will let you know if this works out!  

post #717 of 1458

Yeap, I am going to get that as well. I'll report back.

 

EDIT: I couldn't resist the temptation of saying that I am listening Adele on spotify radio with Jaycar Prom Monitor + Fiio E07K in my iMac and... WOW... I am just enyoing... ^^

What difference does the E07K make compared to the iMac?

post #719 of 1458

I am definitely not an expert but for me the sound is cleaner. Plus you can eq on the go while playing or any other stuff, something that I love because I like to have bass for gaming.

Macs generally produce a warmer and more bassy sound.

The Andes general trait is warm and bassy. But take it a few steps further. Tone down general clarity. Add some THD and other objective measurement "losses" and voila. Apple audio. Still better standard audio than most mass produced standard audio from
