Are you one of the people who always wished that you could get more sound out of your headphone set? Normally, headphones are loud and clear enough, but some sound freaks just cannot get enough of it. Here is where the Fiio E17 Alpen USB DAC Headphone Amplifier scores with its superior performance.
The Fiio E17 headphone amplifier comes with a dot matrix OLED screen and has a nice brushed metal finish. It has one single 3.5mm two-channel output, SPDIF and AUX inputs, as also mini USB and proprietary dock for computer and other hardware connectivity.
As regards the audio control factor, this device comes with basic bass, treble, gain controls and balance, which let you manipulate the sound as per your preference. The best part of this product is its powerful 1,500 mAh battery, which the company says will last for about 15 hours on a single charge.
Downside of the Fiio E17 Alpen
Actually, there is not much you cannot like about the Fiio E17 Alpen. It is near perfect, offering you great sound quality and pleasure hearing for long hours. The only downside, as of now, seems to be its price, which is fixed at $150. This seems a little too steep; in spite of the wonderful conveniences it has to offer its users.
Maybe the company could have offered an introductory discount or something, right, guys?
In any case, the Fiio E17 Alpen headphone amplifier is expected to enter the market sometime soon; during the next week or so.
