Product Description

Fiio E11 Portable Headphone Amplifier A boost to audio quality and not just volume! It's important for headphone amplifiers to ensure what they are offering is not simply an increase volume output. The FiiO E11 in this sense competes with products over double their price! This little beauty will surely tickle anyone's earbuds the FiiO E11 is a more than just a bang-for-your-buck amplifier! Plug in your headphones and get ready to rock! What does the FiiO E11 offer? Beautifully built - This may not be the smallest addition to your portable audio solution however it is most certainly a clever one! The FiiO E11 has an element of style and it's design will certainly draw some inquisitive looks from passers-by. It has to noted that the build quality of the FiiO E11 is anything but flimsy there is even a volume protector to ensure you don't accidently turn up the volume and rattle your eyes around! Long Battery life - FiiO quote us a 10 hour batty life and we are happy to agree that from one charge you should get your 10 hours playback if not more (settings depending). Excellent sound quality - Cold sounding music is a thing of the past! The FiiO E11 brightens and warms your tunes (not too obviously though) and brings out the best in your music. The outcome is a clean and transparent sound signature. The various tone settings and gain setting have different effects on your audio reproduction and you can pick and choose the one that satisfies your needs the most. You have three levels of bass boost two gain options and two working voltage options. High volume capabilities - A word of warning - don't turn up the volume too loud it will hurt! The FiiO E11 has a fair amount of power and can drive the most demanding over-ear cans but like we say the FiiO E11 is to help you get the most out of your music and not to be used to crank the volume to mind blowing levels. An untouchable amp at its price! It's often had to pick-out an amp do you go for one of the more expensive ones?.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiio E11 Portable Amp 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Was it worth twice the price of my trusty and well used E5.? Well made and smart looking product, and the sound.? Great, leagues ahead of the E5, and the bonus is of course the 44 asking price.Give it an esoteric brand name and 3 figures would be asked and still great value. Oh yes,it uses an easily replaceable Li-on mobile battery.Bass control,high and low gain switch to keep the knob twitchers happy.A solid rotary vol. control cleverly built to stop sudden accidental increase and decrease.This is a serious contender amongst portable amps.

4.0 out of 5 stars E5 to E11 Upgrade (Updated) 13 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
(Update) - The battery on the E11 is giving me about 4 hours of use before it needs recharging, this is less than half the life of a charge on the E5. I am going to replace the battery to see if it makes any difference.....Well I bought a new battery and this is just the same. This is much heavier on battery use than I expected.

(Further Update) The sound quality of the E11 is definitely better than the E5. I have had time to do some comparative testing over a number of CD's and on my iPod and there is a noticeable difference and on reflection, makes the E11 worth purchasing. The continuing disappointment is the battery life both with the original and replacement battery. One point to note is that when the E11 is put in-line with my earphones directly from the CD source then the quality is degraded from having my headphones plugged directly into the CD player. I suppose this is the trade off for getting the extra volume.

I have been using an E5 for a little while but as pleased as I was with it, I felt there was some substance missing from the sound. After reading the various reviews here on Amazon I decided to take the plunge and upgrade to the E11.

I am using it with Grado SR80i phones and an iPod Classic 160gb with all the files in Apple lossless format.

The first question I asked myself was 'Is the difference in price justified by the difference in sound quality?' and the answer is no, probably not. I would like to clarify this by saying that if I was starting out again I would jump straight in with the E11 but an upgrade from an E5 to an E11 is a luxury and not a necessity. I will however be keeping the E11 for use at home and the E5 for when I am out and about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality and value 20 Feb 2012
By Duranos
Verified Purchase
I'll start like many others have - I'm not an audiophile. However having invested in some decent bits of kit over the last couple of years I think I've started on the journey.

About 6 months ago I upgraded my Etymotic ER6i IEMs for Etymotic HF5 IEMs, as I was looking for something with improved clarity that wouldn't break the bank, and couldn't afford the ER-4P. I'm pretty happy with them, and I'm about halfway through transferring my CDs to lossless to get the full benefit. I use them with a 6th generation 160gb iPod Classic.

When I originally upgraded the earphones, I got a Fiio E5 just to test out what difference it would make to the sound. I'm sad to say it didn't as it was a faulty item, and wouldn't charge up so I returned it. The refund was swift, and that was that.

A few weeks back I saw that Fiio had released the E11, and although my previous experience initially led me to hold off, my intrigue got the better of me, and I took the plunge. I'm glad to say that I've not regretted it one bit. You'll struggle to find a decent portable amp at this price. I wasn't interested in a DAC or anything for home listening, as I have other equipment for this.

Firstly, it looks very nice indeed. Quite understated, but everyone at work has been pretty intrigued and asked what it does. Build quality is solid, and I've had no problems after about a month of owning it. The only downside I could find was that it cannot be used while it is being charged, however if you're using it out and about, a bit of forethought gets around the issue. I also bought a Fiio L3 line out cable to use, but may switch this for an iBasso cable.

A very neat feature is that it uses a mobile phone battery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just a box with a pretty light ..... 20 Jun 2013
By Ragsy
Verified Purchase
Firstly most of reviews on here are about using this product with headphone's which are fine and what it is designed for, one day I may get some and use as intended ;).

My mission was to improve the volume output from my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 which although a fine product severely lacks the ability to drive my Portable Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i. The problem is not due to volume capping on the player it's more to do with an impedance mismatch between the player and the speaker. In my job I drive a fork truck around a noisy warehouse and good sound is needed to keep me happy during my shift and keep me sane.

My portable sound set up :-

Samsung Galaxy S 8GB Wi-Fi MP3 Player with 4.2 inch Display - White
Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i for iPod and iPhone

I first tried the E05 which works quite well and overcomes the impedance mismatch between the devices but was not giving enough volume to my liking although was fine at home with the player and speaker combo.

I received the E11 yesterday 19/6/2013 and eagerly charged it up ready to test out .... it came in nice tobacco sized tin with all accessories included and instructions.

I took the E11 to work and all I can say is WOW ! , in my noisy warehouse the volume is amazingly good compared to the E05 (50% Louder) and much more important was the sound quality this device delivers. I found that compared to the E05 the clarity of the bass was much richer and deeper sounding and there is enough treble to keep anyone happy.
