Will this work with Android?
Yes and no.
Yes it will work.
No, the power provided by most android phone is not enough to power this DAC, so most of the time you will need a powered OTG cable where you can plug in additional power, or just pass it through a powered usb hub.
I currently use a Fiio E17 and it works all the time but it has it's own battery. I'll try my Fiio E10 and report back. Don't judge. ;) I'm looking for a micro to mini usb otg cable to avoid the octopus I currently have to unleash to enjoy my flacs. I would imagine it also depends on the phones juice.
Edit: Tried the E10 directly to my LG G4 and it works fine. E10 uses 500mA (which seems to be the max according to the Android Open Accessory Protocol)and the ODAC uses 125 mA so I think most phones should be able to drive it without a powered hub.
I also found the micro USB to mini USB cable on Amazon if anyone is interested.
