THE best DAC-AMP solution for budget audiophile

 

I have the Fiio E7 since 2 years and he's alsways at my side when I open my computer to play music trough Amarra Symphony software. This little Dac-Amp never deceive me and the first time I try it it wasn't a placebo effect that make me step off of my...

Good warm sound with Wolfson WM8740 soundsignature, Good stand portable amp, variable bass boost, long battery life, sturdy construction, 2 line out

Soundstage and Instruments separation could be better, after years of use can begin to have hardware problem, no firmware updates

"best things comes in small packages"; Couldn't be more right!

 

Oh the wonders this little box can do! The compact yet powerful Fiio E7 is everything you could ask from a 99$ DAC/amp. After installing the drivers, you're good to go. It gives your music a great dynamic range. Using it on my Ultrasone Pro 900, with...

Great amp/dac combo, Easy/no installation, Robust, Excellent price/quality

Thickness makes it a bit unappealing for portable use

Solves the problems of poor PC audio

 

I'm in the UK. I bought this as a boxed ex-demo unit with warranty from a FiiO retailer for £39.99 which is US $64.65 or €47.40 I bought this because my PC's integrated audio is frustratingly bad and other solutions and workarounds were not ideal: My...

Good sound. Easy and simple to use. No noise. Easily drives very low impedance earphones.

Limited to 16-bit 32/44.1/48 KHz streams.

Substantially changed the way I listened to music

 

When looking for a dac/amp, everyone recommended the Fiio E7. It's a small, compact combo, and is extremely good. So far, I have found it to be stellar. When using my ATH M50's, the sounds truly change. Coming from a computer without a sound card (only...

Deep, rich music. Truly changes the way I experience sound

USB cord is slightly bulky, manual and controls are poorly written/have bad interface

Good for the money and beginners

 

I bought this little device a long time ago and have never done a review on it. Surprising. Sound quality is quite good, it wont beat dedicated desktop setups, but in reality its a very small difference between them. E7 vs My 2012 Macbook Air is easily...

Cheap, good overall quality, durability

E7 with AKG K550

 

Wanted an improvement over my onboard laptop mess. No interference, hiss (from 32ohm), very quick connection, good volume. Bass reproduction on EQ Bass1 is spot on with my AKG K550. Stereo seperation seems spot on and the general tone is much more...

Cheap, good volume, no hiss(32ohm), nice eq & really good upgrade from Laptop

Could do with a better gain when plugged into MP3, no quick lock

First dedicated headphone amp; VERY impressed

 

The FiiO E7 is a wonderful device. It is a combo USB DAC and portable headphone amplifier unit. It has a 1-inch OLED display and a simple but good menu system. The screen is bright and vibrant, and looks very nice. It has a high-end Wolfson DAC chip,...

Awesome build quality, stylish, small, loud, great battery life, OLED display, dual headphone outputs

Poor EQ

Fiio E7 Review

 

Well, after almost a month with my E7, I figured It was time to give it a good review. This was my first DAC/AMP (paired with the E9) so I don't have much to compare it to, except an auditioned schiit asgard. Build Quality and Appearance (8/10)-...

Great Pricepoint, reasonable DAC/AMP

Sounds a little closed in, only 16/48

Main feature of Fiio E7 - it's multi-purpose usage possibilities. USB DAC and portable headphone amp in one compact and small body. Specially I'd like to mention following: Design. It's really nice and stylish Long operation on one charge Perfect sound...

Fiio E7

 

I'm happy with this for my purposes. I use a LOD as well, which may account for some SQ improvements. When I listen to music from my Desktops HD Audio out (Gigabyte UD3R) it is more silent with better clarity coming through this (E7) than my Pioneer...

Silent, Step up in SQ over my Pioneer VSX-918V
