Then you'll cave in to your impulses first and get a new toy. That's very common around here and good for the global economy.

 

I didn't mean how long a charge lasts when the battery is new, but as time passes and the battery has seen many recharges, its charge doesn't last long and you'll want to get the battery replaced or get some newer toy.

Not sure am I too paranoid or wat. I even use a screen protector that you stick it on the phone screen and stick on my fiio. Just to prevent it from getting scratch  ..

Bought the Galaxy S5 yesterday and works like a dream with the E18.
One wee question though - I was under the impression that when connected to the phone that only the volume control on the E18 would function. My S5 volume control on music still works, thus giving me 2 ways to increase/lower the volume. Is this normal?

It's normal and depends on the USB implementation of Audio at both ends. When I plug my iPod Touch 5G into my E18, it behaves as your S5. When I plug my Touch into my Bifrost DAC, the volume control on the Touch does nothing and it's at full scale.

On the Xperia v I have issue where I can control both device volume. On the HTC one m8, it's same as Stan D style where volume key have only 1 knob . I still can't figure it out why when my device is connected to Fiio it skip the first track somehow. It happens with all the phone I have tested :/

Just wondering, If i connect my phone to E18. Then i use poweramp as my music player. If i on the equilizer. Does it make Sound from the E18 DAC go waste? As i tried using without E18 on my m8 with equilizer on and With the E18 with the equilizer on. Both sound the same. Just wanna hear some input from you guys. Thanks in advance =)

Don't know what you mean by "waste."

I find that any changes that I make to the EQ on either PowerAmp, Neutron or Google Play Music are heard when using an external DAC. So for me the EQ is effective, works good.

What i mean was. Without plugging in my phone to E18 with EQ on. It sounds the same as With E18 and EQ On.

Since the E18 has a better DAC and Amp than most if not all phones, I wouldn't expect it to sound the same with the EQ on or off.

Ya, i have tried it out extensively found that the vocal tend to be abit more brighter and forward than without the E18. Thanks anyway :)

What would give better SQ paired with ATH M50 and Spirit Classic - E18 with Xperia through USB OTG or X5 itself?
