FiiO L9 L-Shaped Line Out Dock (LOD) Cable For iPod and iPhone

Average User Rating:
  • The FiiO L9 is designed with a 3.5mm stereo jack to Apple's dock connector, enabling output of high quality line-level audio from iPod, iPhone, and iPad that can be sent to portable audio equipment such as headphone amplifiers and power amplifiers. Designed with high-quality materials, the L9 isolates the audio signal from interference to deliver cleaner and more accurate sound from your iPod/iPhone/iPad. The L9 employs the new HPC-22W cable with ultra-fine PCOCC-A conductors for its exceptional signal transmission property and usability. Rather than twisting whole wires, twenty strands of 80?m PCOCC-A wire are unified into a bundle and three bundles are grouped as a conductor that is geometrically stable. This construction method ensures uniformity of wire structure, eliminates internal gaps, and prevents deformation of wire strands. Furthermore, its total conductive area is equivalent to AWG-22, which is three times larger than regular audio cables. Each conductor in the HPC-22W is jacketed with 0.18mm PFA (Teflon), a material selected for its outstanding electrical and transmission characteristics. The shield/ground consists of 53 strands of 0.12?m PCOCC-A wire, with cotton rope filling the internal space and providing additional tensil strenth. The outer jacket is made of TPE olefinic elastomer, making for a tough, durable yet overall flexible cable. Feature Highlights - Shielded construction provides maximum isolation from interference - Pure copper conductors for better audio clarity and a more natural-sounding midrange - High quality durable connectors for precise contact and signal integrity - Supports standard dock profile on iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Does not support Shuffle. Specifications Length: 6cm (cable only) Weight: 10g Wire Diameter: 4mm Wire Model: HPC-22W Wire Material: PCOCC-A Impedance: Max 0.1 Ohm Insulation: Min 2M Ohm Wire Jacket: TPE

    "Just works"
    Pros - Right angle connectors, Gold plated, Oyaide cable
    Cons - Cable might even be too thick as it is quite stiff, More expensive than I would like, the UE900 cable costs the same amount
    Great quality to be expected of a Fiio product, the cable works as intended and feels nice in the hand. There`s no strain relief on the 30pin connector, perhaps it`s to increase pliability? Otherwise I appreciate the use of right angle connectors which are great for stacking. Since I use it with a Nano 3g and a Fiio A1, the cable is perhaps a bit thick and stiff, though I`m sure it will pair well with a larger iPod/iPhone.

    "Perfect for portable use"
    Pros - Price, size
    Cons - Nothing
    FiiO has become a renowned company over the past few years. The offer really good product with even better prices, making tem a real bargain!
    Made in China, but with European standard of quality!
    There is nothing much to say about the L, other than that, simply put, it is the best choice possible for portable use. The L-shaped plug offers better connection and is more resistant than the normal one.

    "a good connector, but some things need to be fixed or redisigned"
    Pros - sound quality
    Cons - bad noise protection
    I have checked this connector on several earphones. Some noises were clearly heard (like cracking). It can be fixed by wrapping the cabel in the foil, which should be held with a tape or a thread.

    "Exactly what it is supposed to do"
    Pros - Low profile, exactly the length needed, sturdy
    Cons - Know the length of the cable you're buying, a bit pricey
    Fantastic product for doing what it is supposed to. For those who do not know what its purpose is; it is meant to skip the iPod/iPhone's internal Headphone AMP so you can use your external AMP to the best of it's ability. I used it with JDSLabs CMoyBB to my DT770Pro 250ohm and did see a reasonable difference. 
    I would recommend for i-device users who want to get proper amping.

    "Great little cord"
    Pros - It's not longer than it needs to be,
    Cons - No way to charge and play (the L11 has that, but it's a larger connector)
    I think the only thing that would have made this better is if it came with the DAC.
  6. Ptruslow
    "nothing overcomplicated, nothing underdone"
    Pros - it improves sound quality when used in conjunction with a decent amp
    Cons - could either be lower profile and have a snap in, button release like the l3
    it is simple it does exactly what it was designed to do and nothing else. the build however is incredible. i held it up to the l1 my freind has and the difference in the quality and size of cable etc is night and day. if you need a LOD it is great for portable rigs but doesn't do anything other LODs do, it just seems like it will outlast your needs for it.
