Fireye Mini+

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just noticed this interesting review on an italian forum about the soon to be released Firestone Audio Fireye Mini+.

Of course I'm not related to the reviewer nor do I have affiliations with Firestone Audio.

I've seen it in person, never used it though. There are custom faceplates that are interchangeable for people into that sort of stuff.

 

The looks are similar to the Nuforce MMP.

The difference is that MMP has a gain switch while Mini+ has a bass switch. SQ wise, it isn't any big jump over the original Mini, but it is functionally a leap forward. Not just the added hardware bass EQ, but the fact that the amp will pass alone the mic+remote function from the cellphone to the headset (assuming you are using a headset, a.k.a. headphone with mic+remote), Normally setup like [cellphone's headphone-out + amp + headphone] will stop the headphone's mic+remote working with the cellphone, but that's not an issue Mini+. As long as the headphone's mic+remote is originally compatible to the cellphone (iDevice with Apple compatible headset or Android with Android compatible headset), the Mini+ will allow the mic+remote to work, as if it is not there. So you can still use the remote to control the cellphone or pick up call even with Mini+ in between the cellphone and the headset.
