Product Description

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 equivale

Customer Reviews

Used with a FiiO amplifier and an iphone, the sound is improved in many ways.
Oscar Velasquez
The cable is of much higher quality that the 3.5-3.5 connectors that come with the FiiO amps, with much more robust connectors and strain relief.

If you use a line-out cable for a headphone amp or to connect to a stereo (and I recommend you do), I definitely recommend this line-out cable.

First of all, I'm frankly surprised at people complaining about the price of this item. The next cheapest non-FiiO LOD I could find was $30 (the ZN7II from Zycable), and they continue to upwards of ten times the SRP of the FiiO L9. Not to mention that if you're purchasing an LOD for you iPod it means you've (presumably) already spent some money on an amp. In the audiophile community, FiiO has the reputation of making very decent products at VERY AFFORDABLE prices.

It's probably somewhat pertinent that I don't have a lot of money, so I haven't done any A-B testing with any other cables and can't compare it in that way.

Value is 5 out of 5. While I do care about sound, I'm skeptical about what effect the quality of 2.5 inches of cable is going to have on overall sound, and therefor I'm not willing to spend a lot of money on an LOD. There's a lot of argument on the subject, and given the price of LODs (and cables in general) there's a lot of evidence that a lot of people do believe there is a difference and are willing to pay for it. Perhaps if you have "Golden Ears" and a lot of high end equipment you'd be able to notice the difference, but I don't have any of those things. For that reason I'd rate this as a really great bargain.

Build Quality I rate at 4.5 out of 5. The cable is of much higher quality that the 3.5-3.5 connectors that come with the FiiO amps, with much more robust connectors and strain relief. Under normal use I don't foresee the L9 wearing out any time soon. As I said, I'm not of the opinion that the quality of 2.5 inches of wire really matters, so I'm not going to comment on that (plus, I don't have any real way of knowing without dissecting the cable).

I bought this a couple years ago with along with a Fiio e7. This was back when I had an iPhone 4 and the 30 pin dock connector was still in vogue. Move forward a couple years...and now there's this new fangled tech thing from Apple called a Lightning Port. Uh oh....

If you're willing to purchase the Lightning to 30 Pin Adapter, an accessory that seems way overpriced at first, I can happily report that the FiiO LODs work perfectly. So whether you have an iPhone 5, the 4th Gen iPad, the iPad Mini, or the new iPod Touch, the LOD will give you analog audio out. The Lightning to 30 Pin Adapter from Apple (and make sure you buy OEM or you may lose audio out functionality) has a built in Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) that will convert the all digital signal from the Lightning port into an analog audio stream that will be passed out through the FiiO LOD to an external amp, etc.

As others have warned, just make sure you are buying the FiiO LOD from a reputable seller. Not all sellers on Amazon are selling the real thing...so make sure to check the reviews and store reputations. Same goes with the Apple Lightning to 30 pin Adapter...many of those sold on Amazon are not the real deal!!

With the wide range of products offered by Fiio, this quality LOD is no exception. I wanted to have a 3.5mm LOD for my iPhone and I was about to purchase the Fiio L3. However, looking at the pics, The L9 has a lower profile and has the right angle 3.5mm plug. Great for my Vivid Technology V1 DAC/AMP. Matched with my HD600... heavenly. :-)

SOUND:

With the LOD in place, the sound quality is much better than the headphone output jack. I'm pleased with the setup and makes for a good looking setup without too much wire to deal with. I will be posting pics.

SHIPPING:

Shipping was fast and delivery was solid. The L9 came in a silver zip lock type plastic packaging. No extra stuff or extra packaging (ie boxes, plastics)

I would recommend for any audiophile looking for a nice way to rig up their portable HP amp setup. Prices good and better than Ebay.

I'm just starting out stepping up my audio experience by investing in quality sound products such as this little connector. I'm not very picky with sound technical details that other people talk about. If it sounds good that's all I need and my idea of a top headset was in the $35 to maybe the $50 price range. It all seemed good enough to me. I'm sure my hearing is lacking with 30 years working in aviation and more than half of that on a flight line. Well my younger fellow workers educated me and worked on me to experience what a difference quality makes in my listening experience. An old dog can learn new tricks.

I purchased a set of Sennheiser HD 650 Audiophile Headphones and then a Fii0 E7 Headphone Amplifier to get serious about my listening experience. However, to make all this work at it's optimum I needed this little connector, and what a difference this little connector made. Some say it is expensive for a little connector, and maybe it is, but after investing what I already had, it really didn't seem that out of line to me for what I got.

This connector works with my iTunes Touches Gen 2 and 3 (I have one each), plus my iPod Class 160GB. As I said, I'm not much of a sound person and don't have the best hearing, but even I can tell the difference this connector makes. I tried the different connectors just to see if I had spent my money wisely and I'm more than satisfied that I did.

This connector is the perfect fit. I put my iPods and the E7 Amplifier back to back, then put the rubber band on them. I connect the two with this connector and it is just right, especially with the right angle male plug. Not too long and not too short.
