MUCH better sound quality and volume when used with headphones that have higher impedance.

Great job, FiiO. I didn't own the older E7 but jumped on this one once I saw it was released. I didn't expect to gain much over my E11 with my M50s..... but I did. Thanks!!!!! What is usually meant to be a short listening session almost always turns into hours and hours of rocking out. This amp/dac a tremendous value. It sounds great with an Ipod line out and even better when using it as a dac with Ipads or PC over usb. The build quality is very nice too and it looks/feels lke it was made in Japan.... not China. It's just a great amp all the way around. I've been keeping an eye on the E12... which looks awesome.... but now I'm feeling pretty damn content with what I have. I will probably buy the E12 anyway! Really happy to see what Fiio has been doing. Music moves the soul and Fiio moves the music!

Charging while playing as a portable amp is a much needed.....BONUS!!!

Got a bum E7 that wouldn't charge, but still worked over USB. The E7 would work fine as a DAC on my Android Galaxy S3 US, however the E07K doesn't seem to function this way, although it does mute audio from the internal DAC as if it's trying. Not sure if this is another E17 situation (likely) where audio will never work from an android device, or if another kernel is simply needed with the correct module... Obviously you can still use it as an amp from the phone, however that negates much of the benefit.

Listening to a computer through the E7 and E07K indicates that the E07K seems to have slightly more bass to my ears than the E7. For example, Bass=0 on the E07K sounds more like EQ=1 or 2 on the E7 when driving Sennheiser 428's. Will try with my HD570's later, however I do not own any high impedance, hard to drive headsets unfortunately. No hiss that I can detect, but I haven't tried with any IEM's, which from other reviews do seem to have a small amount of hiss present.

Additional menu options are appreciated, far more EQ settings, and a display time out that should have been present on the E7 without being forced to use hold. Speaking of hold, the slider on the side is far more functional than a menu option.

Mine came with 2 screen protectors, as opposed to 1 in the E7 box... not sure if that's normal, but still a nice accessory bundle including silicone sleeve, rubber band, 4 stick-on feet (for covering the rear screws (phillips) on the unit, and a short right angle to right angle 3.5mm cable. There is also a soft case/bag to store it all in. Compatible with L7 dock for driving line out. Works well with a VAST Electronics V-FM02 transmitter for Christmas display usage. Options to enable or bypass EQ settings when using line out is a nice touch.

[...] claims to have gotten it working on a GS3. No luck, but I'm not stock currently.

This is my first Amp/dac and I absolutely love this thing! I bought it to pair up with my Shure SRH550dj's, and what it does for the music I listen to is amazing! I listen to pretty much all genres of music except country, and I have not found one genre that the E07K doesn't improve. For the most part, I run it as a dac/amp with my laptop, but I also purchased the L9 for my iphone and ipad and I can happily say that it definitely improves music coming from both those sources as well! As a comparison, when I would listen to music through the sound card of my laptop, and the sound was bass heavy (dubstep, electro, etc), I would lose almost all mids and treble, as if it was taking to much power to produce the bass. With the same music running through the E07k, all said treble and mids are all still right there right along with the bass.
I'm a wanna-be audiophile, so I don't know much of the fancy terminology when it comes to sound reproduction, but the E07K in my opinion really smooths out the music. The Highs aren't piercing, and you can adjust the bass (as well as treble) so that if you're a bass-head, with a little bit of equalizing, the E07K will make your headphones thump! Dubstep and electro sound amazing! Rock and metal has never sounded so good. Soundtracks and classical open up more and get a better sound stage. The higher quality the file you play, the more this thing shines. Try a couple Flacs out, you'll be amazed!
Definitely a great price for what you get!

My primary audio source when using the FiiO E7K was an iPhone 4s and iPad 3. I used the FiiO L9 for a line out to the E7K. My audio files are primarily 320kbps. My headphones are Audio Technica ATH-M50. I also used the E7K with a Macbook Air and as sort of a pre-amp for a Lepai LP-2020A+ mini amp which was probably the most usefulness the E7K offered me.

FEATURES:

The FiiO E7K is a portable headphone amp with a USB DAC. It features 2 headphone outputs, 3 levels of gain (0, 6, 12), independent bass and treble control, a hold key to prevent accidental operation changes, and an internal battery that provides 24 hours of playback. It has both a USB input for digital audio and a 3.5mm input for analog audio sources.

COMPARING SOUND QUALITY OF HEADPHONE OUTS:

The E7K does what it's designed to do but disappointingly so considering the rave reviews from those using the same headphones as I do along with the L9 connector. Reviewers state the E7K "smoothing out the music" or "making headphones really sing" or just saying "wow". However, other than providing a moderate amount of additional amplification compared to the headphone out of my iPhone or iPad the sound quality was virtually identical with the E7K, except when comparing the sound quality if the iPhone or iPad's volume was at the max or near max. In that case the E7K did offer superior sound quality because of the THD+N at the max volume with the iPhone or iPad. It's the same difference as you'd expect to hear if comparing a 70 watt per channel amp to a 100 watt per channel amp of a specific brand's lineup.
