This company's qulity control is terrible. I recived it on DEC 11. Charging indicator LED didn't light on from the beginning. When i pushed power cable to chassis very tightly, LED was light on. But connection of power port breaked soon. charging was disable. Thus i opened chassis and tried pushing power cable. Unforuntnately, connection to the battery was broken! What can i do? I understand that which is bought cheap is the dearest.

I have a different problem with mine. I cannot find the warranty info they provided. Did you contact the manufacturer? If so, do you still have that info?
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.
Expect another update from us on 11/22 or sooner if something comes up.

Dude..... But it's cool at least I learned what to check for if mine does it when it gets here.

what cans you run with this i'm gonna try my 240 mk II set and my bluedio T3 +
how does this fare with M50x headphones?
How many volume steps does the Amp have? The FiiO x1, has a full 100 volume steps, allowing for super-fine-grained control of quiet and loud. Whereas my Android Phone is thoroughly inadequate with only 10 volume steps, as even 1 can be too loud with 16ohm IEMs.
Bulk shipment received! Our warehouse team confirmed that the group's order arrived earlier and now they're working hard to break everything down into the individual packages for shipment to each of you. We will monitor their progress closely and update the group once all packages are sent out.
Expect another update from us on 11/7 or sooner if something comes up.

We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!
Expect another update from us on 10/31 or sooner if something comes up.

For the next drop, in testing with several headphones now. I would say if your headphones are over 50 ohm I would get something with more power. My Sennheiser 518 are the highest impedence headphones these gave any impact with. Even an 80ohm set is pushing on these giving you and noticible benefit. Then again for a portable amplifier, I am not sure how many headphones are meant to be used with this, most portable headphones are 32ohm or less, which this will most definitely give you a noticible boost for.

Is this one has any issues when using it while charging ?
Giggs
You get more buzz/humm? This is typical for even more expensive amps. You get the sound of the charging mixed in. (using a battery while charging will also shorten the life of the battery, this goes for most batteries and is why most cell phones batteries dont seem to last as long as one expects)
I'm interested in hearing about anyone's experience with this amp and the he-350s.
would these do my Beyedynamic DT990's justice?
SoReckless
Prolly not
I have 1 of these and it works great and is super compact for a public transportation commute. I just bought another for a backup
Mine arrived last week in Greece. It's the first time I buy an amp, as I'm new to the audiophile game. My first impression was how tiny (and light) this little device is! Using it with my iPhone 5 and my RHA 750I earbuds, didn't really put a smile in my face as I was hopping. It pumps the volume up, but the sound isn't improved in any way and as a downside I lose the function of the three buttons on the earbud cable. I then tried it with my portable low cost record player, with the same earbuds and the sound got better. I mostly listen rock'n'roll,rockabilly and swing music, all recordings from the 20's to late 60's (with the quality anyone would expect considering the technology of those days) and this little device made the sound a bit more vivid,with better separation of the organs (I can hear the piano) and fuller sound. Not something dramatic,but it did! I'm quite happy with this purchase (but only because the price was great) and I can't wait for August to get my hands on the hifiman he-350 (hooray!) I bought, to test it with some serious cans! If I like it,I'll probably buy a more expensive one to make my music sound awsome....
And yes, I blame you massdrop and the audiophile community here for what is happening to me right now!!! :D

Unfortunately,I haven't received my headphones yet, so I can't tell. I'll post as soon as I'll get them in case the drop isn't finished and I can help. (I'm not a sound expert though, don't count on a super duper review, ok?) ;)
Finally the HE-350 arrived and I had the chance to test them together. The amp can surely drive them,the volume gets twice as loud as when powered by my iPhone and the first EQ setting gives the base a boost, but I think it also narrows the soundstage and makes the sound muddy. Of course it might all be in my head as I'm just getting in this game, but I think I'll save up again to buy something better to compliment my fantastic phones ;)
Listening music directly from my Oneplus X smart phone sounds significantly louder and way more enjoyable than listening thru the SAP-7. Even with the volume of the SAP-7 set to the max, and with or without EQ engaged, everything seamed to shrink (soundstage and power) to some degree. Wasted my lunch's $$ on a piece of audio which it will be forgotten at a blink of an eye haha.
babybum
Fell the same bra
I have no clue when the SAP-7 is fully charged. Red LED (charging light stays on even when it is full or what next???)
so i received the portable amp, but you guys still managed to fuck up the order, i ordered a goddamn purple amp, i get a black one, SERIOUSLY!!!, honestly would it be so bad if you verified the fucking product first.
I just got mine yesterday. I'm disappointed with the product, tested it on my AKG K702 which requires heavy amping to really bring it out. Barely noticeable difference with the SAP-7 plugged in. I would only recommend it for smaller impedance headphones or ear buds.
miuk
I agree I see a slight improvement with sound dept Not much amplification going on. I'm just happy I got it finally!
Supposed to arrive tomorrow. Waiting is.
I just got a shipping notification, from DHL so who knows how that's gonna play out...

well said, and i completely agree
I would absolutely have preferred "in-store credit" if anyone from mass drop is listening, which apparently they aren't...
Man, way to let customer service slide.

Has anyone paired this with their Colorfly C3? If so, what are your opinions?

What time does this end? Hopefully after 9:00 P.M. Easter time.
How do I use this with a DAC?
anyone have a decent review of this, other than the one from 2 years ago?
