    How would the Q5 fair with high-impedance headphones?

    Thank you! Unfortunately I found here only recommended voltage whereas here (about 9018k2m)

    I found recommended power. And I really don't know how to compare it ^ ^"

    can anyone help me? [​IMG]

    You can buy a amp module with high output power.

    so there will be three different amp modules, IEM, high power and balanced.
    IEM will be shipped with the device.
    any information you can already share with us about the output power of the amps, @JamesFiiO? and maybe about the costs (I'm interested in the balanced module)... I know it's very early for that kind of information, but since you already stated that it will be around 300$ I thought I'd give it a shot.

    I'm not sure about the IEM amp but James mentioned in the X7 thread the high powered module would be around 500mW and the balanced module a bit more. Of course the spec may have changed as that was quite a while ago.

    It would be nice for JamesFiiO to give a little more info for both products sake.

    yes, the amp modules are designed for X7/Q5 and will be released before Q5 cause X7 will launch market in Aug

    oh right, why didn't I just check the X7 thread...
     
    it says 300mW @32 Ohms, this goes for the IEM amp I guess... nice!
     
  8. WayneWoondirts
    so, @JamesFiiO did you get yourself an E5 and how did it perform?
    I only had bad experiences with bluetooth myself. 
     
  9. Dobrescu George
    I also had bad experiences with bluetooth. But I do hope that at a point in the future, it could be used for high quality audio. Or we might want to use wireless devices, and carry a small battery for powering them... but then we would have interferrences and RF noise. 
     
  10. JamesFiiO Contributor
     
    testing but I can't share my experience with you guys cause it is not suitable to me.

    thanks for you answer.
    it's not suitable for me neither. I think it still needs a lot of work to perform well.
     
  12. ClieOS Contributor
     
    I am pretty sure what James means by 'not suitable to me' is referring to him being a MOT and, by forum's rules, shouldn't post any opinion regarding his competitor's products.
     
  13. WayneWoondirts

    Oh, right. of course. how could I not see that...
    But I was actually more looking for some impressions about the bluetooth connection, how it performs. well, nevermind. sorry.
     
  14. Dobrescu George
    Yeah, it is understand-able that he cannot really say anything about competitor's products. 
     
    By bluetooth I think that the usability would be greater for people who already have a smartphone, but the RF interferrences would be pretty high.
