I had talked with Jack and their plans are to lower the hiss to below Rocoo BA levels. I hope they can shoot for at least half the hiss at which point I couldn't bitch about it anymore ;). They were talking about adding a larger screen (1.5 inch) and significantly improving upon the UI so you can go back in each menu instead of back to the very top menu (which is very frustrating). He had also talked about possibly adding a switch to the device which will accommodate for 2 distinct sound signatures (hardware EQ). He had asked if the player should have significantly more power output with half the battery life or not. I recommend he stick to the 55 hour playback times and that the power is quite good as is. I think they should focus more so on portable gear instead monster full size headphones :P.

I havent listen to my BA for a while so I cannot remember the hiss but I know if it was bad I would remember it for ever. But I really hope they get to fixed the menu issue, that would be great!


Increasing the power would be superb, but hopefully with more steps in between. This way we can use all the IEM which do not need much gain. I assume more gain means quick db increase which can be a bad thing for less hungry IEM. Lowering the battery life to even 40 wouldnt be a deal breaker for many! (at least not for me)

Keep in mind the Studio V is significantly more powerful than even the BA (which is quit powerful itself). So in that I'm sure you'll be happy with the Studios power. I agree on having more volume steps or in smaller increments along with more volume steps for better volume control. I'll bring that up to him and see if they can implement that. I am also a low volume listener for the most part and this is essential for me.

cheers

when OP described a hiss issue, was he using very sensitive BA earphones? because I will likely use this with the M100 should I get it.

post #756 of 822

That's gonna be up to you. I'd suggest the 3rd ANV to be on the safe side or just wait a couple months for the updated version to come out.

Hello to all, let it be my first post here and im wanna share some experience.

 

3 days since i've became an owner of Hisound Studio V.

 

Using SanDisk 64gb Class 10 card fully loaded with FLAC without problems. Card is formatted to FAT32 by SDFormatter then Guiformat. 

Player is loading with such card in ~30sec when no new music added and ~2min when you adding some new music its scans the library and adding tracks. In Russia i've bought such card for 70$. Just for the information for those who confused with SD card capacity ussuses.

 

Listening to it with UE Triple Fi 10 stock cable right now.

Installed the BA firmware which helps me to reduce hisses well.

Now still have some hiss but they are not making any problems i think.

I think soon ill try to change the stock cable of my TF to an audiophile cable and also try to use imperdance enchaiser to  solve the problem with hisses totally(not 100% sure it will work but have an idea to try). Will post the result here.

 

About battery charging time. There is a question:

When I've recieved my player it shows that the battery is full, so i decided not to charge it more(like its suggested to charge a new battery to 100% at the 1st time use) and start listening.

After ~15 hours it became showing that it has 50% of battery and i plug the charger on.

Then after 12 hours of charging it showes 100% charge but battery still keep on flashing like charging isnt finished.

Then i stop charging it and start listen again but after 1 hour it already shows 3/4 of the battery.

Does it mean that i need to charge it more thatn 12 hours to get the battery full?

Im a bit confused coz i've saw here that people getting 100% charged battery in 10 hours..

You can keep charging the battery until the red light (I think) at the bottom of the player turns off. Once that is gone the battery if fully charged. I just leave it on until I no longer see the light on the bottom lite.

Mark, I loved your review and share much of the same excitement surrounding this player, it sounds absolutely fantastic.

I have a question for members/V owners.

I am curious how long members can report their Studio V's taking to charge from either dead flat or half full?

I put my unit with one bar on charge at 2pm this afternoon (it's now 9:30pm) which has been charging for 7.5 hours and still happily the red charge light is on. My good friend here says this is normal, but I couldn't stand it any longer and unplugged the unit. I have heard reports it can take up to 10 hours to fully charge and I want others to give me estimates on their charge times please.

But mostly......

Does the unit take a shorter time to charge if it isn't completely flat? For example, if I plug it in with half battery it will recognize this and charge in a shorter time? I think I will just plug in at night before I go to sleep once a week/month when ever it needs too, but I feel worried about such a long time as 10 hours, it's never been the case with other sources even though I understand this DAP has a very thirsty battery.

Guys how many hours are you guys getting from a full charge battery ? 

post #761 of 822

If using PC to charge it normally 8-10 hours. If using adapter(1A) if should charge faster I think.

Mines can take over 10 hours to fully charge. I know when its fully charged by either the lights at the bottom going off or you can look at the battery indicator from the screen. Once it stops moving it is fully charged.

I gather that's from Wall charger Lee? I understand the light will go out.

I will figure out in good time how many hours it takes and note it here, but for me, this was very new concept of charging, usually 3 - 4 hours and my players are done, I understand the V has a big battery but 10+ hours is really getting up there especially from 5v 1A wall charger, I would expect such charge times from USB port.

Personally, I don't mind how long it takes, I just want an estimate on peoples charge times.

For me it takes around 15 hours to charge fully from total drain and this is using the accompanying 1 amp charger........

Yes I use the wall charger. But I just made sure to use a 500 mAH charger in hopes the battery will last longer including longevity and longer battery life. As Spkrs mentioned it can take a very long time from full drain and I don't intend on leaving my PC on all day or night to just charge a DAP lol. So I use my mini surge protector which has usb charge ports on it rated at 500 mAH. So it works perfectly to PC USB specs. I'll generally charge while sleeping. From now on I'll charge it when its on 1 or 2 bars.
