    Ordered because the speakers I use for my portable setup are too low for Podcasts, while being fine for regular Music. So, I noticed this company Fiio that has a range of affordable headphone amps. Packaging was very nice and professional. This thing is SMALL. Included in the package are 2 different lengths of 3.5mm connectors, one is 90 Degrees angle and about 4" long, while the other is a normal 3.5 to 3.5 connector that's about 3' Long, and a Regular USB to Micro USB Charging Cable. I guess for you to decide what you need (and of course there's tons of lengths that you can buy). I use the smaller one and keep this Amp really close to my Mp3 Player (Sansa Fuze BTW) and I've seen people actually rubber-band the Amp and Player together for more portability! Amp is really tiny and light. Has power/mode switch on one side and a Vol +/- on the other. Also included are 3.5mm Input/Output ports on opposite ends of the unit and a Mini USB port for charging. First thing to do when you get this is charge it. Plugging it into any USB port a red charging light will light up, and rather than changing colors the light will simply shut off when charged. This is rated for 10 Hours of playing time. To use you connect using one of the connectors to the Mp3 player, and then plug your speakers or headphones into the output jack. Then just turn the unit on and adjust the EQ and Volume mode. This brings me to the main and to me the only drawback of this unit. There are 4 EQ modes, and to change these you have to click the Power switch a certain way and watch a small LED on the backside of the unit (where it would normally sit on when in use) to change between several colors. I do find for my uses the EQ2 mode, shown by the blue light, to be what I need. This is the only reason why I give 4 stars vs 5. So far, I am getting good battery life out of this unit. I work a 8-Hour shift and start the unit shortly after I begin and it lasts fine till I shut it off during the last few minutes of my shift. This really helps low volume podcasts, but if you're listening to music via any kind of decent or better speakers you don't need this. But it will do wonders via lower powered speakers or headphones.

    Liked the small form factor for pairing with my wife's small mp3 player, they can both fit in a small arm-strap. There is a noticable boost in sound volume, but still not sure if it will be enough to drown out the exercise bike. Unfortunately, the unit would not charge after being on a USB connection for over 24 hours, the light continuously blinks red, which indicates the battery is shot. B&H was great about sending a replacement - to their credit. It should be here any time now. As she has no intention of using this with a smart phone etc., for the price this seems a decent short-term solution for general-purpose analog boost. Although I knew going in the battery was only rechargable - not replacable - I didn't expect it to be DOA. It seems clear that this unit won't last long - and once it's dead, it's dead. If you can get one with a good battery - it certainly beats the lesser models that take AA's. However, by the time the battery **should** be dead, I'll likely be looking at different products. If you can afford the mightier E07k - buy it. Then when you have a digital source you'd like to augment with a 24-bit sound card and amp - you're set.

      Comments about Fiio E6 Stereo Headphone Amplifier:

      I have needed a headphone amplifier for years as my hearing has become impaired as I have grown old. My 12-year-old portable amp finally died, and I searched online for an inexpensive replacement. The E6 attracted my attention because of its low price, and it seemed to offer the features of small size and rechargeable battery that I was looking for. It arrived by mail much sooner than I had anticipated. It is a beautiful gem of a product and performs as well as I had hoped. My only problem was reading the tiny print in the owner's manual -- my eyesight is old, too. I am very pleased with the prompt delivery and with the stunning, clever design of the E6. I use it mainly to boost the audio from my new tablet computer.

        Comments about Fiio E6 Stereo Headphone Amplifier:

        I listen to talk radio and wanted an amplifier to help with distant stations. Not only does this headphone amplifier increase volume but also cleans up the audio as well.

        It's a slick little unit about the side of a compact flash card and a long-lasting chargeable battery and adjustable gain.

        But don't try attaching it to a walkman-style radio; it will create radio interference.

        This amp performs as advertised. It really helped my dual driver iem sound amazing. Unfortunately, the amp stopped turning on a month and a half later. Apparently, this is a known issue. I have reached out to the manufacturer and they are very unresponsive, good thing I used my amex which offers extended coverage for these type of issues.Good luck.

        This H/P amp came highly reviewed. It didn't preform as I thought I would. Not very clean,EQ is useless. It might work for $-$ dollar headsets but not for good H/Ps. I wanted to use them with my MP3 player, but I was very disappointed. I should have known you get what you pay for.

                      Used b/t the RCA audio output of a Sony Bravia 46" and an inexpensive pair of Sony headphones. Great amplification, and the EQ works but wasn't ideal for this particular setup.

                        I use this amp with my SanDisk MP3 player. It's great because it is so small.

                        I just tried it out with my laptop and while I'm satisfied with the boost it provides over just using headphones directly, there's still a lot of bass that could be delivered. I was also disappointed that the EQ settings couldn't be adjusted separately. They're preset. Overall though, they do deliver on the promise of improved audio and in such a portable package. I docked it a star because of the lack of bass but overall quite satisfied.

                            I bought this to power a set of ATH-M50 headphones with an iPhone 4s. The fit and finish of this little amp is very nice, even if it is plastic. The overall sound quality is what you'd expect; a noticeable bump in power but still needs a nice DAC to complete the package. If you need more power, or just want to boost the bass, then this gadget is perfect. It has a couple of built in eq settings that noticeably enhance the kick.

                            My first use, not impressed. Volume boost, but bass or sound qualityf not noticeable in my bang and olufsen ear phones.
