Worked as advertised, was satisfied but stopped working after one month.
Impressive product, I am really surprised, very good sound quality from this tiny piece of "box".
This headphone amp does more than just boost the audio, it makes it way more rich and better sounding.

Out of the box, this amp was almost unlistenable paired with my Droid Razr. Even with using the longer cord, it would pick up considerable RFI / EMI from the phone that could only be eliminated by putting the phone into airplane mode. Adding a snap-on ferrite choke from RS to the longer cord reduces but does not entirely eliminate this buzz. I've not yet tried wrapping the amp in foil...

Updated 7/15/2012: It turns out, after reading posts by the Fiio representatives on the head-fi site, that there is rampant counterfeiting of this amplifier, and the product I bought matches the counterfeits being sold by some of Amazon's partners. Make certain that the partner you pick for buying Fiio products is an approved Fiio distributor.

I can't put links to sites in here but google "Does Amazon's Inventory Commingling Help Fake Products Fly Under The Radar?"

"Part of the problem is with Amazon's inventory system, critics say. Third-party sellers sign up to shill stuff through Amazon's order-fulfillment services. All those products often get pooled together by bar code, regardless of whether they come from the brands themselves or other distributors. That way, Amazon can grab whichever product that's ordered at the nearest warehouse to the customer.

That means even if you buy something that is technically sold by Amazon under the brand's name, you might end up with a product supplied by a third-party merchant, which may or may not be the real thing. And that doesn't make brands happy, because it makes them look bad to consumers who receive counterfeit goods."

Also google the wall Street Journal article titled

"Do You Know What's Going in Your Amazon Shopping Cart?
For Faster Shipping, Items Are Commingled at Warehouses, Opening the Door to Knockoffs"


According to FiiO as of 5/2014
Beach Camera is on the list.
Micca Store is also on the list but I don't know if they are currently selling this item here

DO NOT buy from Amazon or Amazon fullfilled as they come from the same inventory.

BUY from Micca or another authorized dealer. Counterfeits are very common. The safest way is to buy and have it shipped directly from an authorized dealer. You can do that quite easily right here on Amazon.

This little guy packs a nice punch. With different 4 setting..all of them useful..This is the perfect little portable amp.

I absolutely love this little sonic wonder! I am new to headphone amps. I just recently purchased a Grado SR80i headphone set, and noticed the Fiio E5 was listed as something people purchased with several of the headphones I was researching. So, I started to research the Fiio E5 and found out it was just recently upgraded to the E6. Once I saw the price of the E6 and that it was a new version of the E5 I had to purchase it with my Grados. There are several things that make the E6 better than the E5, that I learned from researching them. Most notably the sound. The E6 is also shielded better from interference from cell phones and wi-fi(which may be why Fiio chose a plastic casing for the E6). The E6 has, along with the regular setting, 3 more EQ options. Also, the E6 has a hold switch and the volume button isn't in the way of one of the input/output ports like on the E5. The clip is also removable so you can bundle the amp with your portable player if you wish.

When I listen to music I use my laptop and iPod, but never without this little guy anymore. It takes the sound from both sources, and makes it more smooth and clear. The only downside is that I don't want to even listen to music while it is charging! I might have to buy two of them and have them both charged and ready; which at this price is certainly possible!

Do yourself a favor and buy this bad boy if you enjoy your music and want to have the best sound possible from your headphones!


I feel I need to add a couple things that might have been misleading in the review. When I said I use the amp with my iPod, I am still using lossless audio files; not the 128kbps songs from iTunes. I usually listen to .flac or with the iPod I use .m4a which is apple lossless. If you use high quality headphones such as the Grado SR80i with this amp, they will greatly expose the poor quality music files.

Since everyone has already rated this, I thought I'd give a few suggestions

First of all, to operate it is pretty simple, put your headphones in the "output" jack, and your source in the "input". Turn it on! I personally think the effects can be heard a little louder, if you turn down the sound on your playing device (computer, ipod...etc) and turn up the volume on the Amp. You can mess with the EQ by sliding the bar on the right (up) for just a second or less.

EQ setting suggestions:
Obviously, this depends on the song and genre, but here are some basics

Red (bass boost): This one is my second favorite (behind blue). However, if you like loud music, I believe this is the best one for you. Because the highs are not overly loud, and the mids aren't crazy crisp, you can turn this up very very loud without it ever getting "tinny" or screeching in your ear.

Blue (Mids boost): I think this one works best for most songs. It depends on your headphones, but my ATH M50's (Audio Technica) already have a good amount of bass and mids. However, this mids boost really lets you hear a lot of things you didn't notice before, and i think it results in the most clean, full sound of all the EQ's.

Pink (energy saver or somethin): Idk what this does. All I really notice it doing is slightyy turn down the volume. I assume it's to save battery, but I'm not sure.

No light (standard): Just a good old standard volume/crisp boost.

Hope that helps!
