Great sound - good value for money -plenty of features.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: FiiO E17 Portable Headphone Amplifier and USB DAC (Electronics)
It gave my headphones new life. Music really sounds so much better- sounds you never heard before in your favourite tracks you will be able to hear now. My advice is - get a pair of decent heaphones too - AKG, Philips Fidelio L2 (tested - sounds brilliant)
Quality of build - great -metal case looks and feels well expensive.My advice: use rubber feet (provided) otherwise it will slide off your desk/table etc.. One thing that was failing after few months was power button -seemed to be jammed causing unit to switch off after few seconds of work.I released screws from back plate and it is ok again - must be a design problem causing tension inside case pushing internals too hard against casing. !
*[update] Problem now resolved. Otherwise great product. Value for money !
*[update] The problem seems to be physically expanding battery - I will have to look around for replacement - which is not great.
*[update] I contacted FiiO regarding battery and they sent me replacement ($10). I had to put the battery in myself- a bit of soldering skills were necessary.
