Secondly and more annoyingly is that fact that you aren't supposed to use headphones with it. That's basically why I got it so the phone can sit charging on my desk whilst I listen to it with my headphones. The line out is ok with my headphones but there is no way to control the volume.
Of course because of the way the dock holds the phone there is no way I can plug my headphones into the phones jack.
Any suggestions to this? I don't want to have to buy a headphone amp! What headphones can anyone recommend that would work with this dock?
The analog audio out is line level. I think the pogo pins transmit spdif digital to the dock. The dock then sends this to toslink if you have one installed, or sends it out as analog line level after a DAC conversion inside the dock.
So it is designed to send audio to a separate amp. You'll need a headphone amp to control headphones. I can recommend the Fiio E17 - excellent sound quality.
