I've lived with the FiiO E7 for a month now, and can say it's been a good purchase. I pair it with my iPod Classic_6th Gen (and occasionally CowonD2), FiiO L3 Line Out Cable and either my Grado SR60i's or Bose TriPort On-Ear for travelling. At last I can play music at a decent level without being frustrated at being unable to wring more volume from the iPod beyond it's dreary, limitting, maximum. The amp is functional and surprisingly compact. Easy to use, with a very simple interface. I don't use the bass boost function as I'm not a fan of artificially manufacturing bass response and my headphones produce sufficient to satisfy me. Two headphone outputs allowed the wife and I to listen to music on a flight, although I did unplug myself quite quickly when she wanted Texas instead of Opeth. I have sticky back velcro'd it, back-to-back, with the iPod, which enables both to be carried in the provided soft pouch and as they maintain contact much more user friendly than having them seperate (the E7 is just a bit smaller, width and height, than the iPod, if about 50% thicker). A full charge is claimed to last 80 hours, but as I have a habit of keeping things charged, I cannot comment, except to say I used it for a few days on a trip and it was only around half discharged (maybe 20-30 hours use). Does it make the music sound better ? Not sure other than what I perceive to be an improvement may be the headphones being driven properly (maybe more to my liking). I have limitted the volume to 40 (out of a possible 0-60 range) as any louder and the Bose's sound like they might suffer something nasty. 40 is way loud enough for my 32Ohm impedance headphones (and I listen to music pretty loud). There is absolutely no background noise from the E7 with my combo's. I have used it occasionally with the iPod as an Aux source into speakers and again, it works well. So, in summary, the main intent of driving my headphones from my iPod more appropriately is satisfied by some margin.

I was unaware of this product until a review in a current edition of a hi-fi magazine aroused my interest.

Hi-fi enthusiasts have for a long time known of the impact and the significant sound improvements outboard DAC's can have in hi-fi systems. It is also known that the inside environment of a computer is not conducive to top quality music reproduction, even if the audio file is uncompressed. DAC's inside computers are built down to a price, not up to a quality, and for the most part and for the majority of users, this isn't an issue as their music files are compressed and they are content with the sound.

However, even with compressed audio files, higher quality sound reproduction is possible by bypassing the inbuilt DAC of the pc and using an outboard (external) DAC whose electronics, usually of better quality, are not affected anywhere near as much by stray interference from the computers own internal electronics. And this is the raison d'etre of this device.

Out of the box, connection and set up is reasonably straightforward, although you do need to be a little computer savvy to set up your pc to recognise the device and use it in place of the usual headphone output or inbuilt speakers. It is not an automatic plug and play device. Even I got caught out as having completed all the settings and getting test tones through my headphones, there was no sound output when I fired up Windows media player. I checked and double checked the settings, and still no joy. A reboot solved the problem and it worked.

The device is unusual in that it has a dual function: as a DAC for connection via USB, and as a portable headphone amplifier to be used with a music player, be it via 3.5mm jack or Apple type connector.

This is a great portable amp and DAC for the price. However the amp is not as powerful as the E11 and the DAC, for me, was wasted as my laptop has a good onboard audio chipset. I did try it on a friends laptop and was a huge improvement, I could not fault it.

The build quality in my opinion is better than the E11 and more aesthetically pleasing. The metal finish is really nice and its almost a shame to hide it away under the silicon casing, but then again that feels rather nice too!!! It has a nice face with OLED screen and it has a longer battery life than the E11 (then again its not as loud or can drive powerful headphones to their potential). You can get better batteries for the E11 if that's a major off putting factor.

If your after the DAC / improvement for laptop sound, then E7 is great as it doubles as a amp. If it's just a portable amp, go the for E11, but you will have to accept it's not as good looking as the E7. People ask for the amp comparison, I'd say the E7 is about 2/3 of the E11.

I've done a review of the E11 if you care to check that too.

Having read various reports on this unit from Amazonians and various websites, most of which gave this unit either 5 Stars or 10/10, I decided to take the plunge and buy one. First impression on arrival was the way the item was packaged. Compared to other items manufactured in China, it looks like a fairly high end product and gives the impression that this isn't made by a fly by night manufacturer. The unit itself has a solid feel and looks like a quality product with a high gloss front. From previous reviews it seems that buyers would have liked to have had a screen protector film supplied to shield the screen. Well FiiO clearly listened as there are 2 screen protectors now included. Also included in the box were a Silicone jacket for the amp, a soft pouch, a USB charge lead, 2 Rubber Rings to enable you to piggy back your iPod or other MP3 player to it and a 3.5mm interconnect lead along with some stick on rubber feet.

After charging it up I hooked it up to a standard iPod Classic. I set the treble setting on the FiiO E7 to + 18 and left the Bass at 0. I thought I'd try some Bose MIE2i in ear headphones, which I purchased in 2012 and gave them a 1 star review because the sound quality when connected to the iPod was utterly naff and made everything I listened to sound like it was recorded through a sack.
So I stuck them in my lug holes, selected Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, turned the iPod volume down to zero, set the FiiO E7 volume to 30 and pressed play. To say it brought the Bose phones to life was a complete understatement. The opening heartbeat on Breathe made my brain thud and I could hear stuff within the recording I hadn't previously heard. For balance I then tried a variety of other genres. Classical (Motzart's 40th & Vivaldi's 4 Seasons).
