    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It boosts the sound on your headphones and give you richer basses. It's a good amplifier. You can use it with earphones and headphones, I tried with Shure and it improves a little bit the overall sound from iPod.
    Cons:
    Don't expect an amazing sound out of it. It boosts the sound but makes it a little bit dirty and you will loose a little bit of...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Great product. I was looking into giving my old Altec Lansing speakers some juice because they're pretty old and lacked some punch. So I did some quick research on amps and found FiiO. I was skeptical about how such a small thing can provide any improvem...
    Cons:
    Nothing. The FiiO does what it is supposed to do.
