FiiO E07K ANDES Review and Help Thread - Page 63

post #931 of 1421

Has anyone here used a FiiO E09K with their E07K? I would really love to hear some thoughts on wherher or not it's worth the investment. The impedance range of 16 Ohms - 600 Ohms is very appealing to me, and I think it would be a good fir for my Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO

+ support for 96kHz/24b
+ very universal device
+ easy to use
+ excellent display quality (2 tone OLED)
+ battery life (over 20 hours - measured)
+ excellent build quality
+ look!
+ price
 
 
cons
- none

My Current Setup:  FiiO E07K, Sandisk Clip+ [FLAC] and Koss KSC75.  Could not be happier with the sound.

 

Also just noticed that the FiiO and Sandisk have the same color display scheme.  Yellow and Light Blue.

I have FiiO E07k + E09k combo. Been very happy with it. I use them as stationary desktop system. I have AKG K601 (120ohm). Love the sound & design.

Aux is Auxiliary input. 

 

For speakers, you should either use headphone out(any of the two) OR, get the FiiO L7 ($7) so that you get a smooth line out.

Thanks, this is my first dac/amp and I'm glad I got it, everything sounds so much clearer. :)

 

Just one thing I noticed while I was testing, sometimes when I plugged in the dac/amp the volume is really low. On the windows playback device list it shows that the device is only receiving a little sound. I have to unplug it then replug it for the volume to go back to normal. Anyone what is going on or how to avoid this?

Keep windows volume at 100%?

Hey,

Really nice review. I have a Sennheiser HD 438, do you think it will benefit with the E07K ? I have been really happy with 438s performance not considering the low bass of this thing, using it since 2 years now, hoping that E07 would make it sound better and give it some more punch.

I don't think pairing HD438 with any headphone amplifier makes any sense. Better sell it, add the money you could spent on E07K and buy better phones.

No hate, just pure realism. 

HD558 should give you more fun with Andes, i upgraded my modded HD555 and the result after comparing it with E07K is satisfying. 

I also powet K702 with this amp. Same result.

What they said. Your headphone is too cheap and of too low quality objectively to even say it would be a good thing to get the ANDES.

Damn, thats harsh. I think you could have suggested a headphone upgrade, but with a better choice of words.
