This looks like an interesting amp. Does anyone have impressions when paired with JH16 (non-freq)? Currently looking to upgrade from my odac/o2amp, any comparisons against my current amp/dac would be appreciated as well.
 Hi Class D, The BBP (http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/backbeat-pro) actually do support AptX (not sure why the website doesn't say). It has the logo on the box, and the AptX splash screen appears when I connect it to my SP3 via the Azio dongle. The fact that I noticed a volume difference when the Harmony driver was installed vs uninstalled leads me to believe that the CSR drivers are being shared with the SP3 BT hardware. The extra BT icon that controls devices...
I just wanted to input some information pertaining to the Azio USB dongle. When I first got my BackBeat Pro headphones I connected to my Surface Pro 3 BT (4.0) and I didn't notice a difference between the audio quality when I use either my SP3 or Azio dongle BT connection. I then went and uninstalled the Azio Harmony driver. I tried listening to my BBPs today and noticed that the volume was oddly low compared to the audio coming out of my phone (HTC One M7 - AptX). I...
I got my BackBeat Pros today and my initial review is that I'm keeping them.   BBP > Pendulumic s1+     The S1+ is boring, the BBP is fun. Multipoint is pretty awesome, though I seem to be getting some odd skips between my SP3 and my HTC One (m7) from time to time. They're probably both fighting for stream control randomly. I tested out the BBP with my SP3 BT 4.0 vs the Azio AptX + Phone AptX and I couldn't tell a difference. Therefore, I chucked the terrible CSR...
I plan on attending as well.
 SP3 doesn't have AptX, but I just got my Azio dongle. I tried AptX with the Pendulumic S1+ via the Azio dongle, but there is still no wow factor there. The bass is lacking, mids and highs are clear though. I ended up ordering the BackBeat Pros over the weekend since they came back in stock for a little bit. I was looking at the MK2, but I didn't want to deal with having to send them back overseas if there's an issue. At this point if the BB Pros don't wow me, then I'll...
I was really interested in this amp/dac combo until I read about the hiss issues. I do consider that unacceptable when it comes to ciems/iems. Hopefully there is an update to fix this issue!
Thank you so much for this replay, this issue has been driving me nuts lately.
 Not sure where I heard about the different music player, been reading too many reviews lately lol. I'm looking for a BT headset that I can use to listen to music and movies/tv. I'm moving and won't be able to bring my home theater system with me so I need something to hold me over. I be using my Surface Pro 3 as my primary system so BT seems the most appealing since wires will get annoying after awhile. Any suggestions? My top choice right now is the Backbeat Pro, though...
 What is your setup? I currently have my 16s with a odac+oamp and a copper cable (can't remember who I got it from) and theres some sibilance that has been getting to me when I listen to certain songs. I'm not sure if its the amp/dac combo or what..
