Got my headphones :D :D

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I just got my first headphones and they sound amazing. I bought the ultrasone pro 900's and the fiio e17.  At the moment I have the headphones connected to my laptop > Fiio e17  > Headphones.

 

My question is what wire do I need to buy in order to connect Google Nexus 4 phone > e17 > Headphones?

 

I am excited.  The riddick movie trailer sounded like I was at the movies lol. Didn't think headphones could sound that way.  Also dubstep and bass music sounds excellent.

A 3.5mm male to male would work I think. Unless fiio does indeed make a special cable for the nexus.

I'm not sure if the Nexus 4 supports USB audio out, or if there's a way to enable it. 

 

Using a Fiio L8 cable will do the job.

My e17 came with the cable.  I tried putting it from the nexus 4 phone to the top of the fiio e17 and also the bottom of it but the sound never came out of the headphones.  How should i connect this wire so the headphones work?

 

Thanks!

This way: Nexus 4 headphone out > Aux input E17 (bottom) and plug your headphones on the Headphone out of the fiio. 

Don't forget to select your input with the input switch.

Thanks it is working great :D

 

I am getting the new iphone 5s when it comes out.  Is there a special wire I should order now to have it ready?

Awesome. 

 

For iDevices there's the L9

That only works with older iDevices with the 30-pin connector (iPhone 4S or earlier). I don't think they have one for the new Lightning connector yet.

Watch a scary movie with them on. The Insidious 2 trailer came on while trying to play music, and the sounds from my headphones alone made me jump

Ultrasones are great for that purpose, besides music.
