It appears to be the other way round: when it shows "Open", it is is presenting that option to you when it is actually currently "Closed", and vice versa. So it does get quieter when the EQ is activated.

 

Hope that makes sense!

Can you guys confirm something:

If you switch the Custom EQ so that the bottom left shows Close and then Open - it changes the volume from quiet to loud.
Which is the louder one? For me it gets louder when it shows OPEN.

Am I correct in saying that Open = EQ ON (with all frequencies set to zero) and Close = EQ OFF

Thanks
The eq off or closed should be louder.

I'm using JH16 and 8.A - the 8.A tend to need more volume than the JH16 anyway.

However, assuming we're talking about the JH16 - I have always had the player around the upper 130 \ lower 140 setting in the office.

Although there are variances in the different tracks, they are generally the same ones I have been listening to for months - give or take the odd new album.

 

Wow - I would have found that painful at 190 plus.....not so sure now...might have to see how the player sounds now at that volume.

The EQ has always been set to Closed (off)  - it does get louder if I switch it to Open(On)

 

@Rozeqcloud - Love his new album. I play it most days and I appreciate the brilliance of it more with each listen. There are so many layers to each of the tracks, I seem to discover something new with each listen.

I found on first few listens that it appeared disjointed and random - That I think is its brilliance, because as you listen to it more, you discover that it is anything but random and that each song is carefully crafted and the whole album fits together as one. For example, its taken a while for what I thought was just a cacophony of sounds at the beginning of "Holy Drinker", to click and understand that it is not just random sounds, but that it all flows and fits together.

Each time I get to the closing bars of "The Raven", I find myself thinking...."Is that it? Has it really been an hour!!! "

 

I guess I'll let iBasso know and keep an ear on it and see if the volume keeps going down over the next few weeks.


Yes all Stevens work is brilliant .i cant wait to hear his surround mixes ,which always win awards

Yes - I think this is what has confused me....why they cant use ON\OFF ?

So if you want to use it with NO EQ settings  - make sure you see OPEN – which means all EQ is OFF
 
Funnily enough I think the volume maybe OK now I understand the EQ options confused_face(1).gif

I just got a Sandisk microSD 64GB card and I'm having trouble inserting it into the slot.  It won't "catch", it ejects itself.  I have uploaded a video of me attempting to insert it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16252691/IMG_0168.MOV , am I doing it correctly?  Thanks for any help :)

Did you insert it upside down? You are suppose to put it in upside down on Chinese players. Then use your nail to push it inside the hole and it should click.

OK, will try, I did put it in upside down but was afraid I wouldn't be able to get it out again because it went all the way in and had to use tweezers to get it out.

I just push the SD micro card in flush and it clicks into place (upside down). I push with my finger and it comes out. I don't use a finger nail or tweezers, no need to.

I used my nails to push it in and push it back in again when I wanted to get it out. Too much of an issue for me using my fingers to push it in. Didn't seem to work that way when I had a unit.

On = On

 

Off = Off. Done


Open means off. Close means on except all bands eq ±0???

Yes means no.
No means yes.
Open means off
Close means on
