Fiio E17 or E18? - Page 2

post #16 of 21

I've had my E17 for about a year now and I refuse to listen to music without it. 

 

Does the e18 have EQ? if not then it's a no contest, E17 all the way. Although the samsung galaxy has a pretty damn good EQ. soooooo????????

 

I have Keff in ear and over ear headphones. they are a bit much on the high end for my taste so it's nice to give them a base boost. The in ear has a slightly different sound so I like having the choice. My E17 is falling apart so I am now in the market for a new mobile DAC.

 

My main listening source is my ipod classic with a LOD cable. 

 

 

Does the Fiio even have a competitor at this price range? Seems like no one else has a viable option under $150.

I love my E17. I debated myself upgrading to the newer E18 but since money is tight I'm happy with my current setup. Thought I blew an ear drum yesterday listening to music way to loud.

Current setup: Fiio E17, IPod Touch 4th Gen. 64GB, Fiio L9 cable, Sennheiser HD8 DJ Headphones.

I've not heard the e17, I am very happy with the e18 though. Sounds great as a DAC/amp, even better as an amp for my ODAC. I don't use IEM's though so I can't account to it's silence with sensitive IEMS, though paired with the SoundMAGIC HP100's (32ohm cans) it's magical, and paired with the V-Moda M80's (18ohm) it works noticeably better than on the Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100, with a pitch black background.

 

Am considering getting the e17 for my father as I can get it for 75 Euros. What do y'all think? Good price for a 2nd hand Alpen?

Can someone say e17 or e18 which is best for improving sound stage in sennheiser headphones like 449?

its weird, I prefer the sound out of the e18 than the e17.  I have no use for an eq, but I could totally use the e18 to charge my OnePlus.
