It comes with a spare screen protector a bright OLED display,a large capacity internal battery chargeable from any usb port,volume memory,power off timer soft case and a silicone cover.
Onto the performance: The Digital to analogue converter improves on most laptop computer DAC's, certain mp3/cd tracks that had some distortion in them do not noticeably now.
Artifacts that sometimes occurred on my laptops sound card headphone out (introduced by my PC suddenly needing to use a lot of Ram or high processor use due to a scheduled defragmentation of disks,an antivirus scan) have disappeared on using the E7.
I really do believe it takes a load off the computer
I tested this using MDR-7506 headphones and found sound remains almost as flat with no bass boost and with bass boost ,even on level 3,it does not sound unnatural.
This unit can drive some very good high impedance headphones without distorting badly at higher volumes.
It may be worth mentioning that it is quite possible to severely damage your hearing using this product (as with any high gain wide bandwidth headphone amplifier used in conjunction with sensitive headphones) so please be very careful how loud you start thinking is your normal listening level,as it's incredibly easy to turn this unit up because of how good it sounds.
As a maximum SPL test on volume No 60 for my E7 to MDR 7506'S I measured peak readings of 112.4dBC inside my headphones with a decibel meter, which I *would not* put on my ears! Just to give you an idea.
I've listened hard and cannot detect any hiss coming from the unit nor any hum with the volume at 60 (Max) on several paused CD tracks.
I expected adding a second pair of headphones of a lower quality at the same time would reduce the audio level and quality through the better pair - it doesn't - this would suggest both headphone sockets are amplified to independently.
It made the poorer headphones (MDR V500) sound acceptable in volume as a pose to this never occurring (though it doesn't make them better headphones)
The E7 sounds as luxurious as it looks. Battery drain is very low.
Analog amplifier function - plugs into a stereo 3.5 mm out (small cable supplied) this goes into an input (marked AUX in manual) underneath unit and does a very good job at boosting signal without adding noise that i can detect.
Using the DAC made the most difference for me.
I've recently ordered the E9 which this docks into as a desktop headphone amplifier - i shall review the E9 and combination of E7 and E9 as soon as i've extensively used both together.
FiiO E7 and E9 Combination Deal by MP3 Amplifier
The E7 has (on the internet) been seen connected to the ipod/pad and be used as an external DAC - you do need to buy a cable/adaptor for this as it isn't included.
*Headfi are probably the best community to get verification of ipad/ipod dac functionality actually being operational or if these pictures i are misrepresentative/leading me
I can't comment on the ipod/pad performance but if it can improve on an i7 laptop DAC i'm sure it can do similar with these.
