I Basso HDP R 10 is IBasso DX 100 Japan Version impressions thread - Page 71

post #1051 of 1416

Thanks for the comparisons. I tend to agree about the R10. Actually, I must say I have tried many DAPs in the last year or so, but eventually always went back to R10 since I never found one that really improved its sound quality (of course based on my tastes and my use, mainly with JH13FP). Believe me, I wanted to find one as I don't like too much the size, weight and the large touch screen of R10, without physical buttons. Now I am going to try the DX90 (received last week), although I am still in the burn-in stage, which I expect to be at least as long as it was for R10.

Thank you for the write up!! Looking for a few more before I commit. On a side note, is it possible for guys/ladies to post an update with regards to your r10 battery life along with how long you had them? Thanks !

As far as the battery is concerned I get about 10 hours on a single charge after about one year.

That's a very good performance I must say.

Today from morning till evening I was listening to my R10 at work and I managed to still have charge when I got home :)

The battery, is much better than DX100.

Btw hdp is now at good price (its quite funny, when comparing to HM901! which is worse).

The battery life of R10 is much better than DX100. I had both and sold the DX100 long ago.

Hi, how are you?
Can you already say anything regarding the R10 vs DX90?
I am mostly interested in soundstage, amp and drive power and ability, detail...

Thanks.
Cheers!

I remember that for R10 there was a clear change in sound after about >300 hours of use, so I prefer to wait to complete the burn-in of the DX90 before making detailed comparisons. As for drive power keep in mind I am using them with CIEMs and you would need probably to use full size hard to drive cans to push the amps to their limits. Anyway, I will report my findings.

Thank you for the preview! smily_headphones1.gif
Looking forward for you full comparison!
I am using the R10 with a pair of Mad Dogs, so drive ability kind of matters to me.
How about the user interface? What's your preference?

Cheers!

Just another question...
Anyone had the chance to try the HDP-R10 with a pair of Beyer DT 990 Pro 250 Ohms?
How did you find the match? And does the R10 drive them well?

Cheers!

UI is good on DX90, rather intuitive and fast. However, the battery life is shorter for DX90 than it is in R10 (even after one year).

post #1063 of 1416

Out of curiosity...

If I ever need, or just decide to change to replace the battery on the R10, is there a way to do it myself?

We all know batteries have a useful life and that their performance degrades over time and usage, so I was just wondering... :)

 

Cheers!
