More Genius From The Guys and Gals at Fiio! Summary The amazing Fiio L11 Dock to Line Out and USB Converter can help you to help yourself to help you get the best sound from your Apple device by eliminating the weak point of your device the sound chip! Features Allows you to plug a Headphone amp or amp/DAC to your Apple device without having the signal going through the device's sound chip Allows you to plug an AUX line out into your car's AUX line in if it has one Allows you to plug in a generic Micro USB to USB charger Fits into the Apple 30 pin Details This little plug of joy allows you not only to bypass the devices sound chip by allowing you to plug directly into the Apple 30 pin dock connector to get the sound straight from the device into your Portable Headphone Amp or DAC via the 3.5mm jack output on the converter without it going through the devices sound chip. This allows you to get the best possible sound signal from your Apple device into your Amp/DAC. But wait there is more that this genius little plug does.... It will also allow you to charge your device from the micro USB on the opposite side from the 3.5mm output jack so no need for the specific 30 pin Apple cable. The Fiio L11 will allow you the flexibility to plug a mini USB charger into your Apple device while at the same time taking the sound directly from the Apple 30 pin plug into your external device be it a Headphome amp/DAC or even your car's audio system. Please note; The Fiio L11 Dock to Line Out and USB Converter does not come connection with cables!

A small, black device about the width of the dock connector it attaches to, it fits snugly - no danger of it falling out of my Classic. The Line Out works exactly as it should - ie a fixed volume level, fairly high, to feed into an AUX or Line In - you can plug headphones in, but the volume will be loud and you need to have headphones with a volume control really. This is not a limitation of the device - it's how Line Out is supposed to work. So if you've got the fairly common problem of one side of the headphones not working, this is not a complete replacement - but then it doesn't aim to be.
The Mini USB for charging is a bonus, and works fine - a quick test didn't show any crossover hiss to the line out to my admittedly not that sensitive ears. It will even act as a Sync Cable if connected to the computer! If there's one quibble - and this is extremely minor - it's that they could have put Micro USB (as used in almost every phone out there these days) rather than the slightly less common Mini USB. Even so, Mini USB cables are easy to find so it's hardly a deal breaker.
Overall, looks to be a decent little bit of kit for a decent price - and my 8-9 year old iPod suddenly has a new lease of life because of it!
If you want to use it with headphones, it's worth noting you need a pair with Volume control, and DEFINITELY NOT a built in Microphone and Volume control, like most of them on Amazon, it just won't work then unless you want your music on FULL VOLUME all the time (You'll get a migraine in seconds).
I went to about 7 cell phone shops, asking if my iPod classic 80 GB Damaged Headphone jack could be replaced.
All replied negatively and advised me to buy a new iPod.
I was reluctant to do this, because I like fixing old stuff instead of throwing them away and finally stumbled upon the "Fiio L11 Multi-Functional iPod Dock to Line Out & USB Converter"
I ordered in it on Amazon.com , unpacked it, plugged it into my old iPod and I could listen to my MP3's in Stereo sound Again !
Headphone jack problem fixed.
Thank you Fiio
This product had me thinking tho, I would like to see a fiio product for the ipod that has microphones and a line-in jack in it.
This would convert my dinosaur iPod into a field-recording device.
But for right now, I'm satisfied.
Most others will either give a message on the ipod saying not Apple and will not charge or start charging for a while and then give this error, or will only charge when the ipod is switched fully off, or wil not charge and give audio out at the same time.
This product solves all of this, no problems found using G3 `s.
Even Belkins and Griffins models have issues with Apple ipod G3 too.
If you've got an idevice with a 30 pin connector then get this. Even without an amp it makes a difference to the sound. You can't adjust the volume on our device once this is plugged in as it bypasses the sound chip. However to boost the volume it's well worth the few quid it costs.
It's very light but when attached doesn't matter as it's on my ipod. I haven't tried charging through it yet as I've got an ipod classic so the battery lasts for days.
Overall it does what I wanted for a good price and means I don't blast my ears when I use my ipod after being in the car with the volume all the way up.
