Want to use it so I can use headphones w/ TV but that would require me to charge it then un plug it all the time. Would rather just be able to plug it into a USB port on my PS3 or something and have it permanently powered that way. Any way this is possible? I'm handy with a soldering iron.
Nope, the E11 can not power headphones and recharge at the same time.
About the only thing you could do is buy and extra battery or two, and a simple AC battery recharger, so while one battery is driving the E11 the other battery is being recharged.
You could sell off the E11 and buy a Schiit Magni ($100) or O2 ($130) headphone amplifier.
Or even a PAV2V (Pocket Amplifier 2 Version 2), sells for around $65 on eBay.
