    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 use a portable xm radio in my car, but the volume is limited. I have an old "Boostaroo", but it is very limited in boost and eats batteries. thi Fiio E6 charges via USB and lasts for a week of commuting. I have paired it with other audio devices where portable speakers do not produce enough volume and I have had very pleasing results. it is clearly designed to boost, bt the boost has a very well equalized sound with rich lows and fully separated mids and highs. I cannot believe that a product at this low price point is so versatile and well built. This will certainly spawn consumers to upgrade to other Fiio products. I strongly recommend it for the purposes described above as well as for audiophile/prosumer grade headphones on portable audio devices.

        Comments about Fiio E6 Stereo Headphone Amplifier:

        I like to listen to podcasts while I work out, but the music that is playing in the gym makes it hard to hear the interviews. My iPhone doesn't go to 11, so I wanted a small preamp to crank up the volume. The E6 fits the bill perfectly. It is small, and lightweight, and it does exactly what it needs to do. Spoken word is clearer, and music sounds richer. Working out has become a lot more fun since I got this nifty little preamp!

          Using as a pre amp to garage stereo aux input and it boosts the volumn to about the same level as listening from the cd player.

          For the price, it is worth the much better sound.

            The amp works as stated. I have it between the stereo output of the flat panel and the input to wireless headphones to boost the signal at low volume levels. I have set it up and haven't touched it since installation. Can't think of a thing on the downside.

                  Love this little guy. I wear my hearing aids all day except when I exercise, when the moisture would be damaging to them. I was having trouble listening to my music and podcasts during my workouts, and tried out this amplifier. It works just as I hoped it would, and I don't even notice it on my waitband because it's so small and light. Very happy with this purchase.

                    My old media player died just after I replaced my headphones with a nice pair of over-the-ear headphones. I figured I had this extra Windows phone laying around that I could use as a media player -instead of buying a new media player to replace my broken one.
                    Only problem was an impedance mismatch didn't allow my phone to produce nearly enough volume with my nice new headphones. So, I thought I would try this little amplifier - figuring it's worth a shot.
                    I was very impressed with how well this amplifier works and sounds. Not only did it increase the volume to more than enough to satisfy me, it did so without adding any distortion. My headphones never sounded better. I couldn't be happier.

                      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.

                        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.

                            I use the amp when the sound in my headphones is low. The great thing about this product that it charges thru the USB. Worth the money.

                              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.
