Today, finally receivediBasso Reference DAP DX100 - Page 7

post #91 of 126

My shure 535 isolates amazingly well in airplanes. Also, depending on music jh 16 can even mask airplane jet engine (This is where jh 16 differences really shines.).Bose quietcomfort 15 also does pretty good.   I’ve never really had any trouble listening to quality music in airplanes.  We take turns watching our daughter, sleeping, listening to music, etc.

This will not supply the necessary 12v, for charging , it is used for usb hubs...

You are right but I'll take quality anyday over earbuds. Do a 29 hour flight from Perth to NY  and you will take anything you can get your hands on. confused_face_2.gif

 

I like the idea of one unit and no bricks with bands for flight travel.

I thought these customs give really good isolation? I hear the SA-43 give up to 40dB of isolation. Wouldn't that be literally "killer isolation?"




I don't know about planes, as I recently got my SA-43s, but they do isolate well in a train filled with kids on Christmas Eve...

It's at least partly an issue of perceptions and taste. Personally I would rather be in business class in the air (when i am so fortunate) than on the ground. Vibrations of a 777? That's body music to me.

 

I really do enjoy my Classic+CLAS+Stepdance+ES5 rig on airplanes. Enjoying that quality of music in the sky blows me away. (And it is also limited to the 7-9 hour range.)  If the DX100 can even equal my rig but at <1" thickness, I am all in.

I suspect the XP8000 might work since It has a 9-15V output.

Well I received my unit a few hours ago. So far I am quite happy. Can't speak too soon though, the UI does have a few quirks to it but its still very good. The sound is nice right out of the box. Looking forward to burning it in and loading music on it. I'll be posting a bunch of pictures later.

 

I have to say I am quite pleased with the size of this device as well. I was thinking it would be significantly bigger than this. I would say its about the size of the Sflo2 but double the thickness (which really isn't too bad for the components inside).

 

Another plus is it appears ibasso has included a USB adapter which will allow you to charge from USB (So those of you who want to use external battery packs; it seems like a viable option after all).

Great first Impressions, Lee. As I understand,the USB is just for loading music, not charging.

Well, I am confused as to how the USB to Charger works.  As all USB only supply 5v and this thing require 12v.  So even if you can connect a USB line to the adaptor, it is not giving 12v into the charger input.

I don't know then but why else would they provide this cable? I figure it probably can accept lower voltage but it will take significantly longer to charge due to this.

Well one more question to ask Ibasso.

And it would take about 37 hours.....lol.

Is the same on my Asus Transformer tablet and much longer time needed to charge it ;) It's a good news , because I use the USB from my screen (at my office) to keep in charge my T51, hope I can do the same with the DX100 ...
