The FiiO E17 portable headphone amplifier with USB audio decoder (DAC) is designed for dual-functionality. The E17 both replaces PC on-board sound cards as the primary audio decoder, which can lead to an increase in audio quality, as well as provide high quality sound amplification and drive high-powered high-end headphones. The E17 support different inputs including optical and coaxial. The E17 is a step up from the older FiiO E7, providing a wider support for various input devices as well as overall more functionality and control.

- The dream of audiophiles and fans of quality sound!Review by Mikhail
- Best DAC+Amp for the price, nice extrasReview by Daniyar
The DAC itself improves the sound of my Mac greatly, The included pouch and rubber band allows me to power my Sennheiser HD555 headphones on the move (using iPod Video). Both combinations sound superb.
On free headphones: These are great for $28 (their price here) and even better when one gets them free.
