Product Features


Product Description

The FiiO L5 is designed with a 3.5mm stereo jack to Sony Walkman dock connector, enabling output of high quality line-level audio from Sony Walkman audio players that can be sent to portable audio equipment such as headphone amplifiers and power amplifiers. Designed with high-quality materials, the L5 isolates the audio signal from interference to deliver cleaner and more accurate sound from your Sony Walkman.

The L5 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 80μm 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 equivalent to AWG-22, which is three times larger than regular audio cables. Each conductor in the HPC-22W is jacketed with 0.18mm PFA (Teflon), a material selected for its outstanding electrical and transmission characteristics. The shield/ground consists of 53 strands of 0.12μm PCOCC-A wire, with cotton rope filling the internal space and providing additional tensil strenth. The outer jacket is made of TPE olefinic elastomer, making for a tough, durable yet overall flexible cable.

If your like me, you skewer the internet and 90% of the time you say to yourself, "I don't need that c%^$." Then you search more, read reviews, and somehow talk yourself into the purchase.

In the case of the Fiio LOD this is what happened to me.

I didn't think this would improve the sound that much, BUT, it does.

This bypasses the electronic amplification system in your portable MP3/media player. The issue is that with most consumer electronics this is the part of the unit that is usually not paid much attention to. Like on the iphone for example, you'll notice a huge difference if you listen to it through head phone jack and then through a DAC and amp.

Here's what I noticed upon plugging this into my sony walkman mp3 player:

- Less White noise
- Cleaner more impactful sound,, less decay on instruments
- More natural reverb
- The eq from the device is more exact
- Notes are not as round, mid bass leak is lessened
- Dynamic range is slightly great

Yes I know that's a lot, but then if you think about it, you're feeding your amp (JDS 421 in my case) a clean signal and saying "go with it." So if you own a high quality amp, this is a must. Anyone who wants the best portable audio they can get for their money's gotta have one of these, the cost to performance ratio is insane.

Sends out a clean signal as far as I can tell. Use it with my sony mp3 player and a Fiio E07k amp. Very nice combination that may be overkill for some but really drives some of my full sized headphones well.

This item obviously has a very specific purpose which is to connect a headphone amp to a Sony mp3 player. It fits perfectly and in my subjective opinion improves the audio out to the amp, and subsequently to the headphones. I also would recommend this product if you listen through high quality headphones. I have been impressed with the quality of sound, and I think using the connector makes the improvement in sound possible.

I bought this on a whim not knowing if it would work to connect my Sony Walkman (model NWZ-AR16) MP3 Player to the AUX port on my SUV's stereo. I am so glad I did. It works great! I have a 2007 Chevy Suburban with a stock stereo, and nice Bose speakers. It has an AUX port which can be used to connect an MP3 player to the truck's stereo. I had tried using the connector that plugs into the Walkman's headphone port, and the sound quality was terrible. You could hear a constant buzzing noise in the background with the headphone connector, so I had given up on ever being able to connect my MP3 player to my vehicle -- until I found this handy little connector.

I loved it so much, I have now ordered a second one to connect my Sony Walkman to my boombox and home stereo. I can't wait to hear how much better the music from my MP3 player will sound on my home stereo.

As others have stated, I wish the cord could have been a little longer, but considering the sound quality that this lovely little cord is responsible for producing, I'll find a way to make the short cord work.

It connects well on both ends and seems sturdy enough. The only thing I would change is to use a longer cord, avoiding any additional degradation/problems caused by yet another physical connector in the signal path. However, there are probably people strapping the player to a headphone amp that like the cord short like this, so... you can't please everyone!

This one little cable unleashes the power within any Walkman it fits. Only drawback ? Eventually Walkman has to be charged. No big deal there, just charge up first. I couldn't believe the good sound and superior bass inside my Walkmans. At current price every Sony Walkman owner should have this, when you want to share your music. Decent speakers needed. I use my Bose Wave Music System.

I use it to connect my Sony mp3 player when I use it with my FiiO E7 portable headphone amplifier. Using the line out disables amplification (and also disables the volume control) in the Sony, which allows a cleaner sound output from the mp3 player. This cable is well built and both the line out dock connector and the 3.5 mm stereo male connector to the output device fit well. For the price, this is a great purchase.

I purchased the Sony NWZ-E465 solely because Fiio had this LOD for it and paired it with the E7 DAC Amp. This package gives me a player that goes for 50 hours of high strength and clarity only possible with this LOD.

The only criticisms i have is the length. When I pair it with the E7 I wish it were shorter with two right angles and when I'm connecting directly to my home amp or anything else it is exceedingly short. As a compromise, this length is perfect.
