you can also look at E 17 or E 07K. However, E 17 is better.

Thank you very much will have a look, i think i will buy it :)

what about E18 ? it's slim, no lcd, which is no big deal, and the same price?

I don't have neither E17, nor E07k, but I am very happy with my E7.


 

Explanation (Click to show)

Judging form E07k's description its output into 32 Ohm (which is very close to HE-400's 35 Ohm) is 0,22W, which gives us 23dB of gain.

Taking that HE-400 sensitivity is 92,5dB per 1mW, you will get 116dB at 100% volume.

 

Even my E7 would give something like 18,6dB of gain with HE-400.

 

So, my advice would be go for FiiO :)

mishka,

 

Nice :) Estonia, and you?

 

To be honest, I haven't tried mating my S4 and E7, so unfortunately I cannot help you here. Try "endLess", although I am not sure if it is compatible with iOS..

I am using my E7 as an Amp/DAC while listaning misic from my laptop (Foobar)
