    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    this may be obvious but just in case - did you turn down all the analog line in / microphone levels? (or mute them) also bluetooth levels as well as any other ones not being used can be turned down/muted as well.

    joined today + first post = troll. Everything you reply after this is now discounted. You should get better headphones if your E5 sounds bad. There are countless number of better devices out there but I wouldn't say the E5 sounds bad.

    Spotify - distorting or is it me?

    Can someone load up this song:   https://open.spotify.com/track/6KGH1OAYmRmwSP8Ny6zzAF   and tell me around 00:49 is there a skip?   If so, this is terrible.

    photo courtesy of https://www.facebook.com/SoundBlasterE5/photos/pcb.901273176591848/901272853258547/   Looks like the left headphone jack is less distance from the headphone amp chip. Probably the better choice even though one probably couldn't distinguish the difference.   I guess while...

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    I have an odac+o2 as well as the e5 and use my HD600 on both. Can't hear a difference between the two honestly. It's more about convenience with the e5 really (multiple inputs at once, PC + Phone)   I take my e5 back and forth from the office and the other day I left it at home and my o2 ran...

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    I cannot get a stereo recording from the internal microphones. I've tried with my PC/Audacity and it just gives the same waveform on the left and right channels. What gives? Perhaps I am doing something wrong but It is advertised as "stereo microphone array" yet whatever I record is in mono

    Works wonderfully with my HD600 Even on the low gain setting I hover around 50-60% on the volume dial (Jazz / Classical)

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    quick initial impressions, compared to the O2+ODAC, with all effects off, it is just a bit warmer with an ever so slight emphasis in the bass. (tested with HD600 and TF10)   It's quite a swiss army knife functionally. Most products with this many functions require special software and drivers...

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    Anyone tried recording on iOS devices yet?   Also, when used as a headphone amp, does it go through ADC and DAC conversion?

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    hmm, if there isn't a way to bypass the ADC and the DAC and just use the unit as an AMP that would be minus a point in my books. More importantly, the fact that the volume is not analog would be a deal-breaker for me! That would mean that lowering the volume means reducing the dynamic range...

    TDK IE800 Dual High-Performance Dynamic Micro-Drivers IEM

    ditto to that. These aren't the most comfortable by far... for those with smaller orifices. It's unfortunate as they sound great and can be had for so little.
