Enhanced and Capable

Although strikingly similar to the E7 in appearance, do not allow the apparent similarities of the E17 to its counterpart distract from its distinct features. Most noticeably, the E17 features an enhanced interface. The E17 allows users a greater degree of control especially in the adjustment of Gain, Bass, Treble, and Balance all of which can be individually adjusted to create a personalized sound. Moreover, the E17 remains a powerful and portable headphone amplifier as well as USB DAC that is compatible with both the E9 desktop headphone amplifier and dock as well as the L7 dock kit.

Headphone Amplifier Specifications

Amplifier Style
Some headphone amplifiers are designed to be portable and others are meant to be placed on a desk. This will tell you what style of amplifier this item is.
Portable
Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC)
A Digital-to-Analog converter (also known as a DAC) converts a digital audio signal into an analog signal. This is especially helpful for listen to music from digital sources, such as iPods and smart phones.
Built-in
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the amplifier will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 100000 Hz
THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
<0.001%
Input Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifiers receive an input audio signal.
3.5mm Mini-Jack
Input Impedance
This is the input impedance of the headphone amplifier.
16-300 ohms
Output Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifier will output the audio signal.
3.5mm Mini-Jack
Number of Outputs
Some headphone amplifiers have a built-in splitter so multiple pairs of headphones can be connected to it. The number specified here is the number of headphones that can be connected to the amplifier.
2
Output Power
This is the output wattage of the headphone amplifier. It is measured in mW.
>250Mw mW
Output Impedance
This is the output impedance of the headphone amplifier.
16-300 ohms
Power Requirement
This is the required way to give the unit power. Common power sources are 120V AC (Common house plugs), batteries, or a combination of the two. If the headphone amplifier uses batteries, this will list the type of batteries that are required. Please refer to the description to find out how many are required for the unit to be properly powered.

Sounds great

June 13, 2014

I'm using this as a desktop (non-portable) amp with my computer and it works great in this application. It sounds really good. It pairs especially well with my Logitech UE900 for some reason, but it'll make any pair of headphones sound better. It's also not too big and easy to set up because you don't need to download any extra software.

Awesome device!

September 18, 2013

I use my FiiO E17 every single day at work since the integrated audio is absolutely terrible. I did quite a bit of research on portable amps and DACs and finally landed on the E17 and I have not been disappointed at all. The only thing that bothered me was the strange gasoline-like smell of the carrying pouch that was included. Other than that I've had no issues and the sound reproduction on this DAC/amp is absolutely superb for the price!

Fantastic compact headphone amp!!

September 13, 2013

This little guy (the size of most smartphones) is fantastic! It contains many features such as EQ, various output sources, lcd display, etc). I"ve paired it with my Westone 4 earphones and a laptop, tablet and ipod touch and used it while travelling and it vastly improves sound quality! This is a "must" for anyone who wants to optimize their listening experience from portable devices but pairs well wjhen using a quality set of either head/earphone or desktop speakers.

E17 Awesome buy!

July 15, 2013

If you have a hard to power set of headphones, this amplifier has you covered. If you want to hear the fine details in your music collection, the E17 brings them to the front. Clean amplification and supports up to 24-bit 96 HZ via digital input.

Good but worth the price?

May 28, 2013

I love this DAC, since i bought it I've used it everyday paired with the e09k amp, currently using this with some Somic MH63's until i can afford a higher tier headphone but this certainly is keeping me satisfied. After much debate and researching though I feel it might be a little pricey at least when compared with the e09k, which is well over 200 dollars, against other combos in that price tier you'll probably find much better devices. Still that shouldnt turn you away from this. If your only interested in the DAC however, this is the best budget device out there!

Nice Entry-Level Amplifier

May 27, 2013

The looks of the e17 is niiice. I really like the hairline finished of it. Also, the build quality is nice because it is metal. Amplification is great. Price is very affordable. What I don't like about it is the display and the buttons.

Just What I Needed

January 7, 2013

I have only used the analog feature of this device and have been completely satisfied with the quality. The main reason for purchasing a headphone amp was due to my hearing loss in one ear. The ability to adjust the volume balance between right and left channels has been a God-send. This device is well built and easy to use.

Awesome Amp!!

April 20, 2012

If your thinking of a portable headphone amplifier then this is it. This thing sounds amazing and it's very powerful. I've got a few other portable headphone amps to compare it to and this thing outshines them all. Not only does it outshine them in sound but features as well.......this thing has separate bass and treble settings so you can tailor the sound just as you like it. The display is a nice feature which shows battery strength, volume and all your menu adjustments. It really makes a difference on all the headphones I hook to it.......it gives them all a more cleaner, crisp sound that's louder and has the bass response you can start to feel. Especially using my Monster Beats Studios :-) these things sound amazing running off this E17 amplifier. I promise you won't regret this purchase!
