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.
No
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).
20 - 20000 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.
<0.009%
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.
1
Output Power
This is the output wattage of the headphone amplifier. It is measured in mW.
880 mW
Output Impedance

I cant tell the difference

March 4, 2014

The unit looks good and feels robust design in your hands. I am using it with my ATH-M50 head phones and I did notice some level difference with and with out not the volume but sound stage. How ever when I tried with high impedance headphones like my Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250 ohms it did not help at all. The sound was still struggling to come even though it was rated to support upto 300 ohms. So the question is "is it worth $130 for my needs?" Also I notice the volume knob has some rough corregations which I am feeling inconvenient to touch it. I ask all you experts an advise...should I keep or return?

Awesome little headphone amp!!

February 24, 2014

This purchase of the Fiio E12 is for the second one. I purchsed my first one a couple of months ago and I liked it so much that I decided to purchsed this one as a backup. And...so that my wife and friends won't be left out while I'm listing to my music. What a thoughtful guy huh. I think it is a testimonial in itself that I bought two of them. I was blown away by this little audiophile level powerhouse! Beautiful in its workmanship. I couldn't be happier! BTW- I am using it to drive Sennheiser Momentum, AKG K550, Beyerdynamic DT990 32OHM and Denon AH-D600- It is great with all of them!! ENJOY!!

great little amp

October 30, 2013

This amp has a lot of power 850 mv that can put out more than your ears can handle. I ride a motorcycle and like to listen to music. With this amp I can hear every thing. Solid bass, you would want some very good headphones. The best thing about this amp you can charge and listen at same time.great for long rides. When I hook it up to my home stereo I can listen and change amp and phone and listen to music all day and the amp has a full change and ready to go. If your looking for a portable amp this is a good one.

Best sound yet

September 18, 2013

I use this unit now with my iPod and a set of 1964 in ear monitors. I hear things that I never used to when using the FIio. Best kit I've bought in years.

Good improvement on previous model

September 17, 2013

The FiiO e12 is a great little amp. I have a pair of byredynamic DT990 Pro's (Which I also highly recommend) which have absolutely wonderful sound quality, but with that comes a high impedance level. This amp has been plenty powerful enough to drive the headphones without a problem. It will put out signal as crystal clear as you put into it. It has a good, fat, and tight bass EQ setting. gain setting (useful if you have high impedance headphones like me), durable volume knob, metal body, sturdy switches, and a pretty darn good price compared to others amps of its caliber. My only complaint would be that is a bit bigger than the previous model that it's replacing. Other than that though, it's great.

FiiO E12 gives great results with Sennheiser HD600 and HD 449

September 17, 2013

This portable headphone amp has yielded superb results with my Sennheiser headphones and 30G iPod. To put it simply, I never would have suspected the true potential of these headphones had I not listened to them with the E12. The E12 takes them to an entirely different level of sound quality. The unit is also very well constructed and has a very solid feel to it. The playing time with the rechargeable battery is very impressive as well. By the way, a FiiO L1 or L9 cable is mandatory to use with this iPod/FiiO combo to get the best results. Get one. You need it!
