The key things you should know is that this is a DAC and an amplifier in one. The DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) is what changes the computer's 1's and 0's to analog (audio, in this case). This provides the "upscale" in your audio format. Then the amplifier gives the headphones more power to provide a nice warm sound, and allowing them to hit all of the frequencies with ease. To have both of these in one under $100 is quite remarkable.
The build quality is purely Sleek. A brushed metal look encases the E07K, and there is a glass front with an crystal clear OLED screen. All of the inputs are positioned reasonably. The size allows for you to attach to the back of your smartphone and still not cover the phone's camera.
To move through selections you have 4 buttons. It's much like changing the settings on your TV buttons. I found myself blazing through changes once I used it a few times.
-Power to push out clear highs/mids
-Ease of controls
-None, Just make sure you give it some "burn in" time.
Great News for Apple users: using the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (MD821ZM/A) I am successfully able to stream digital audio to my FiiO DAC through USB to my Lightning Apple devices on iOS 7.0+. This was not possible before iOS 7, and is a recent discovery. USB Charging was necessary to be disabled, but works absolutely flawless! I am extremely satisfied with my portable DAC setup, as I'm able to stream high quality 320k tunes through MOG anywhere I go!
I was also able to connect this DAC to my iMac, MacBook Pro, work PC, and Asus Google Nexus 7 (2013) Android Tablet running CM10 using OTG cable without any issues! All drivers were instantly loaded and functions flawlessly! The DAC even charges from my Tablet!
My only negative complaint is the screen protectors.. I am a self-proclaimed screen protector installer and these are about 1mm too large along the edges. This is not enough to subtract any stars. Possibly I just got a bad batch? They do not stay adhered when using the case as it pushes the edges in. Again, very minor but should be noted since they advertise useless screen protectors.
If you need the push to buy this beautiful little device, consider this it.
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!
Charging while playing as a portable amp is a much needed.....BONUS!!!
