[Preview] FiiO E18 Kunlun – Surprise, Surprise. - Page 13

post #181 of 202
I have an SGN3 & pair it with an E18 primarily to drive V-Moda M-100's. I've also used it to drive my Sennheiser HD 650's and it does that job well. There's no shortage of power & the sound is very good.

AW: [Preview] FiiO E18 Kunlun – Surprise, Surprise.

That was exactly my Combo too...

... until I bought a DX90 and a Focal Spirit Classic.

I am using my E18 with an Samsung S5. So fart it only works with the USB Audio Player. Has this been the case for others?

I got my galaxy S5 and E18 and they work with all the software.

 

I'm running the PowerAmp Pro, works like a charm.

Also with all other music players.

What version of Android are you running. My S5 only works with the USB Audio Player.

Hi Scott,

 

Mine is running factory standard + 1 update that came in:

 

Android 4.4.2

Version: G900FXXU1ANE2

 

 

 

Do not forget to use the correct sequence.

It could be the you'll have to kill your playing app's after you connected the E18 + turned it on.

Then start you music app again.

 

 

I hope this can help,

 

Casper

Ahh that seems to have been my issue, thanks!

Just ordered this with a pair of HD 25-1 II's and a BTG recable. Source will be a Galaxy SIII using Neutron Player and I was wondering if I could still use the DAC with Neutron, and compensate for the treble roll-off with some EQ?

Yes you can. The DAC in the E18 is far superior to the one in the phone. Also, Neutron is the best player too, IMHO. Good luck.

Would you happen to know what frequency to increase and by how much?
post #191 of 202
I have no idea, that's for you to find out. I wouldn't be too quick to use EQ anyway. Just wait & see how it goes.

What problems are you running into? I have the One m7 and am considering this amp... I'm wondering if any of the problems might translate to the m7.

I use to use the m7 with the E17 and it worked fine using poweramp until a firmware update. Then I got the E18. It seems the new firmware messed with the USB audio out and it's like that on the m8 as well. I think rooting with a custom ROM or something might be needed.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep it in mind that I may need to root the phone.
