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.
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.
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 - 80,000 Hz
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.
Output Power
This is the output wattage of the headphone amplifier. It is measured in mW.
100mW-12mW mW

DAC Specifications

Maximum Output Voltage
This is the maximum voltage that the amplifier or preamplifier is able to output.
Output Impedance
This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker 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).
Crosstalk is defined as the unwanted transfer of signals across communication channels. The higher this number is, in dB, the better crosstalk rejection the DAC is capable of.
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
Digital Inputs
The type of digital inputs the digital-to-analog converter features.
Jitter is a deviation in or displacement of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal.
Line Level Outputs
The type of analog line level outputs the DAC features.

Great Product!

June 25, 2013

I've owned this device for six months and its been very good to me. I purchased it because the head phone jack on my ipod was broken but i was surprised how much better quality it made the music sound. The only drawbacks are that it drains your ipod's battery at a much faster rate than it normally would. Overall I am very satisfied!

Great Product So Far

September 27, 2013

Bought this because my headphone amp on my Ipod Nano stopped working. The Fiio E1 works fine so far. My headphones sound much better (cleaner sound, better bass, and louder volume). The best thing about the Fiio E1, is that it runs off the Ipod's there is one less thing you have to remember to keep charged all the time. There are two things that I don't like about the Fiio E1: [1] the cable is too long(makes it too easy to get snagged on something) and [2] the control button is a little too sensitive for my taste (makes it too easy to skip songs if the control is in your pocket and you happen to brush up against something). Other than the two gripes I listed I think it is a great product and at a great price at Sonic Electronix.
