FiiO E07K or E11

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I need your suggestions on choosing between those 2 amps. I know that the E7 is also a DAC but I already have the GoVibe Mini uDAC. Should i ditch the GoVibes and buy the E7 and replace it as a DAC or should i just keep to the Govibes and pick up the E11. I'll be pairing them up with my ATH-M50 and V-Moda M-100. Thanks

I would say to get the FiiO E07K, easier to carry around one dac/amp then a separate DAC & Amp.

I really don't think it matters much, they're pretty similar aren't they? The difference between them is probably negligible.

See this portable amp shootout. Ranking at the end after the reviews.

Since the E07K has enough power to sufficiently drive your headphones, I would go with the E07K so that you don't need a separate DAC over the E11.

I'll be using it through my Android phone and also my Lenovo laptop. I haerd about the E07K not working well with smartphones because smaprtphones can't provide enough power? Is that true? :/

The FiiO E70K will work fine with just about any headphone, the E07k will be using it's own built in battery while be used with the smartphone.

You just run a cable with a 3.5mm plug to 3.5mm plug, one end will plug into the the smartphones headphone output jack, the other end will be plugged into the E07K's line-input jack.

With the laptop you can connect the E07k to the laptop's USB port.

I was just thinking that as you can't use the E07K's DAC feature with your android phone and the GoVibe MiniDAC is easy to carry with a laptop.

Maybe you should just get the FiiO E11?

Yeah true. I guess i should just get the E11. Plus the Govibe DAC is very portable and small. In terms of sound though. Which would go better for bassy genres like trance or EDM. That's a main factor as well

Really have no idea which would offer more bass sound.

I do know the E11 has a bass boost switch, not sure if the E07K has one?

I've decided to get the E11. Just the better choice for me as it isnt too tough to bring the Govibes around. Thanks guys
