Not only does it increase the speaker volume, it also increases the headphone's volume.  

In essence, it permanently increases analog power amp gain by +5, instead of digital gain, so no distortion.

I love B3 pro with this mod without external dac/amp.

Sorry for the off-topic. 

I actually use "fauxsound" and Viper4android to increase the gain, but I still don't think its enough. It just makes it more listenable.

This seller has no feedback but the item is interesting. I send him an email to get more info: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Diy-ie80-earphones-diy-earphones/1591113005.html

 

(Seems like the driver has two components: one dynamic, one armature)

I actually have the KZ one that I can sell to you. Its like $5 if you want to try it.

I couldn't get a good fit with it. Too big for my ear canal. Otherwise, its a cool dual driver.. Just doesn't seal or isolate like an in ear.

Fauxsound setting does not stick. The ui shows that the gain increased but you have to keep the app open all the time to have the gain stick.

On the other hand, this mod does the same permanently without an app.

Flashed perfectly on CM11. I'll test it later. Thanks!

you will have to manually edit /system/etc/mixer_paths.xml.  values may differ.

 

this mixer_paths mod has been available for a quite time for many other devices.  just it was made flashable for nexus 5.

I don't trust either listing in the slightest.

You will find similar DIY  hybrids on Taobao, but with Astrotec AX30/35 which are cheaper and known here on HF I guess those are more safe bet.

I am using Samsung Galaxy S2 (i9100) as main source  and the amplification is poor for higher impedance earphones, so I sometimes plug it to my E11 amp but in that case I loose some details.

 

Yesterday I have purchased a sound amplification booster software called as "Voodoo" (Known as Voodoo Louder) from the Playstore. It is supposed that, this software only controls and raises the analog output not a digital amplification effect. So amplification does not make a weird effect like distortion. I have gained about 7dB and the price were nearly free (1.5 USD from my country). Worth to try... 

 

FYI Android users.

You are loosing details using an e11 amp??? That makes no sense.

Yes, I can hear the differences, that's why I am also planning to make a line out cable to my i9100. If I bypass the internal amp of the phone may be I can get some improvements... Don't know, I will try if I have enough time...
