It works great in a plane to overcome the engine and cabin noise.
Jeff
Also, the power boost is really only strong enough to improve sound output on earbuds and small headphones.

The FiiO E5 is nicely constructed with an aluminum body, intuitive, well made, and very reasonably priced.

Headphone amplifier is OK, its only 25$, compared to the iBasso (around 120$) and other hi end brand ranged from 100$ to 500$.
this little thing wouldnt handle hi end cans but makes a great difference with portables headphones, which is i believe what is designed for.

And the bass boost makes a nice addition, however is not always welcome, my Equation RP15 are better without it.

Battery is OK, i charge it about once per week. way better than i spected, because is really tiny.

My complain here is not for this little amp but because the Y clable included in my package is not the one displayed, i went with this and not the 20$ because i wanted the Y cable, and in the photo you can see a very nice one, i recieved a regular black Y cable, and t doesnt say "Micca" anywhere. its not cool to advertise one thing and sell another. for this i cut the rate to 3 stars, would have been 4 and a half at least.

Edit: I've been told this wasnt Micca's fault, my order said:
"Sold by: Pro Ebiz LLC"
-and-
Seller Name
"Bear Motion Tech Mart"

Read the first comment to this review by Micca for an explanation, and make sure your order says "Sold by Micca Distributor and Fulfilled by Amazon"

Edit 2: since it wasnt Fiio's or Micca's fault raised the rate to 4 stars, Im having fun with this and my ATH M50's so far, and they do wonderful things to my Sony XB700.

I'm even considering getting the FiiO E7 or waiting for the E11, but from a REAL seller.

Edit 3:
I left a "poor" feedback in the seller profile, it got removed.
I wrote and complain about it, but they replied 3 days after saying that it was OK now, but it wasnt, the feedback was in my page but nowhere to be found in the seller profile.

I use this headphone amplifier to boost the signal from an LG Dare cell phone's music player to my car's aux jack. This phone simply doesn't have the juice in the headphone jack to make listening to it in the car possible. (I like it loud sometimes.)

Pros....Good price for a very compact design that works pretty well. Charges with included mini USB cable, power button, bass boost control, volume control, includes lots of cables so it comes capable to fill a variety of needs. The casing is metal, similar to an ipod. so it's very sturdy. Also has a spring type clip for securing it to yourself or something in the car. It has a two color power indicator, red and blue, to indicate when it's on, when it charging, and when it's done charging. Charges quickly, about 1 hour.

Cons....1. While it does boost the signal, it still does not reach the out-of-box signal strength of my ipod nano. The bass boost control is more like a tone control, no real "boost" of low end but it still sounds good. They could improve the slider itself as it's a little funny about getting brushed up against something and will move too easily.
2. Some posts on this product described a "buzzing" noise through the speakers. I did hear the sound only when the phone was plugged into the car for a charge. Sound quality is excellent otherwise. Pay no attention to the posts where someone is naysaying the sound quality. If you have the ear and the equipment to bring out any flaws in this product, then I'm sure you can afford to buy the really good product for much more $. Come on guys, it's $20. It's not studio quality.
3. The 20 hour battery life that's advertised is wishful thinking, especially if you leave it in the car between uses. It needs to be charged frequently.

This headphone amplifier was a very pleasant surprise at an incredible price. It's a very low distortion headphone amp with it's own rechargeable battery in a compact case. The 2 different EQ settings were fine and the sound produced was exceptionally clean. It was able to drive any 2 pairs of headphones I tried with it to any volume level I wanted. HIGHLY recommended.

This little guy works great. It makes music from my labtop and MP3 player sound more vibrant. Its construction is also quality and stylish. I am very happy with it.

I currently own the Bose AE2 as well as the Bose IE2, which are AMAZING headphones, but lacked that "oomph" of bass to make them that much better. This was that missing piece.

Included in the box:

- Fiio E5 Amplifier

- Micca Y-Splitter (some people had said that they got fake ones, but mine definitely say Micca on them)

- Small box with a manual pointing out where the different features are

On to the Review of the Fiio E5 Amp itself:
______________________________________________________________________________________

Durability: 10/10

For such a small and cheaply-priced product, the durability is surprisingly strong. The material it is made out of has a very nice feel to it and is very sturdy. The clip on the back of it to clip it to clothing is fastened very securely onto the amp itself and is made of the same, strong material. Very impressed.

Design: 10/10

Along with the strong buildup, it packs a very elegant design. The main body is black while the top and bottom (where all of the buttons and function controls are) are white. The product itself is nice and slim, but still has a good battery life. Nothing to take points off for.

Usability: 8/10

This might be the only lacking feature of the product. While all the features work properly, some are slightly difficult to access. On one side of the product, there is a jack where one of the provided cables can go (there is a short one and a long one) from the product to your MP3 player/laptop etc. On the other side, there is a jack where you input your headphones.
