Descripción del producto
The FiiO E9 desktop headphone amplifier offers truly stunning audio performance and versatility. The E9's sleek and modern form factor, while minimalist in apperance, belies the engineering marvel within. The E9 has exceptionally low noise and distortion, providing enough power to drive the most demanding headphones up to 600 Ohms with excellent dynamics and clarity. The FiiO E9 also serves as a dock for the FiiO E7 USB DAC and portable amp. When combined, the E9 and E7 becomes a seamless high fidelity audio interface for any computer, allowing noisy internal sound cards in computers and laptops to be bypassed. With both a fixed and a volume controled line level output, the E9 functions well as a pre-amp for driving power amps or active monitors.

So that's my sound preferences. I had hooked the Beyers to the HT receiver and they sounded good but I had to really crank the receiver's volume to get decent full sound. Now they sound as good or better than the Polks and Klipsch. The sound is rich and full and frankly, incredible.
One minor nitpick. There is a hi-lo gain switch on the back. Mine is obviously set on hi. I like hearing the sounds between the notes and this does it for me. Bach is as powerful and breaktaking as it should be, and in a bad live performance I can hear details that rival a high powered home theater.
I have to say this is the first time I've had a headphone experience that didn't leave me wishing i could just crank the speakers instead.
This being my first headphone amp I have nothing to compare it to but for the money it's a no brainer (I paid extra for fast shipping too).Like everyone else said, the appearance is great.
I bought a set of Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro-80 headphones, and to be sure I would get loud enough volume I also bought the FiiO E9. As it turned out, I really did not need the amplifier. The headphones are plenty loud enough with my destop PC (using an X-Fi Titanium Fatality Pro soundcard) and with the headphones port on my Samsung T24A350 combination HDTV/Monitor. Nevertheless I do use the FiiO E9. With the help of a Sescom Ipod A/B switch, I have the FiiO E9 connected to both my soundcard and my HDTV/Monitor (using male-to-male 3.5mm cables).
The Beyerdynamic DT 770s give me the best sound I have heard during my twenty-three years as a headphones' user, and the FiiO E9 does not at all distort that sound. What the FiiO E9 does do is reduce the amount of power used by my PC and HDTV/Monitor. Without the FiiO E9, I have the mixer on my PC and the volume control on my HDTV/Monitor set to 50%. With the FiiO E9's knob set to about 50%, I can lower the volumes on my PC and HDTV/Monitor to about 25%.
So what? Good question. Well, it might lengthen the lifespan of my PC and my HDTV/Monitor, particularly the power supply unit on my PC. But maybe not. If this FiiO E9 were to break down, I would probably just do without it, and just connect my headphones to the A/B switch. Still, the FiiO E9 gave me what I wanted: extra volume.
Having a pre_out is very nice for my situation where I am going into my powered speakers, this gives me the ability to set the volume on those (volume knob is on back of speaker) and then utilize the e9 to control volume for my headphones of speakers depending on what is being used at the time. This is extremely convenient and also a works very well for its intended purpose. The headphone (at least the 1/4") jack does mute sound to the pre_out line so I don't have to worry about turning them on/off individually.
I find that the inputs/outputs could have been a little better as far as diversity is concerned. I appreciate the 1/8"/3.5mm input as it's coming from my computers soundcard (Creative Sound Blaster Z SBX PCIE Gaming Sound Card with Beamforming Microphone SB1500) however; I can see how some may want RCA inputs (the FiiO E9K High Output Desktop Headphone Amplifier and Dock for E17 (Not E7 Compatible) has these now I believe) or another alternative input. Another fix they have in the new version (E9K) is removing the 3.5mm headphone jack altogether; the 3.5mm headphone out alters the impedance to account for IEMs which generally use the 3.5mm. However, someone using an IEM really has no need for the E9 at all so it makes it confusing. If you have any quality of headphone, use the 1.4" out, even if you need to get a 1/8"/3.5mm to 1.4" adapter.
I'm not sure if it was on here or another site, but a review said that there was no on/off switch which was either false or they fixed the issue. The volume knob is the on/off switch, turning all the way counterclockwise will "click" and power off the amp.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced headphone amp, or like me a way to control volume from your desktop, this is a perfect choice. The price is right for a high quality amp if you know ahead of time about the shortfalls.
