Hope this finds favor and thanks guys for a great thread read.

Thanks for the review! We've been a bit busy at headquarters for the last few days so we've been a bit quiet online but we're still keeping an eye out for everything smily_headphones1.gif

Perhaps from this movie? บอดี้การ์ดหน้าเหลี่ยม (The Bodyguard)

Does anyone know where I might be able to get an RFI snap-on filter? I had a small one around that I've been using, but it's just a tiny bit big. (And it does seem to help a small amount; I still get occasional bursts of noise, but it seems to cut out the low-level constant noise -- unless it's just placebo, but it doesn't seem like it.)

 

I've been considering getting some RF blocking paint and painting it; anyone have any experience with doing this?

The case is already metallic, so paint may not do anything, By snap-on filter do you mean a Ferrite bead that snaps over the cable? I think that I might have a simple answer to the EMI problem, just got to test it out some more and will post it in a couple of days

That is indeed what I'm referring to.

 

I'm definitely curious to hear about your solution...?

Shameless Head-Fi meet plug here.


Anyone within driving distance of Austin, TX interested in checking out the e18 is welcome to spend some time listening to mine at the meet.  Link to the thread in my sig.

 

There is a cover charge because Maxvla has secured a really sweet room for us at a conference center, so there'll be lots of room for everyone.  Also, there are several vendors that have agreed to send gear in their absence in addition to all the gear that the Head-Fi crowd will be bringing,

My phone is asking if I'd like to upgrade to Android 4.3. Currently Galaxy S3 with 4.1.2

I take it the e18 will stop working if I apply the update? Right?

If it is anything like the 4.3 release we had in the UK, don't do it! Look at the Samsung UK facebook page to see how much love Samsung has garnered for itself in the UK with the 4.3 software update for the S3:

Thanks! Wow, sounds like major failure on Samsung's part. I wonder if this update is a revised version of the failed one at the end of Nov..

What about anyone with a working 4.3? Does the e18 work? It doesn't have to be on an S3. I'll still need to know for when Samsung fixes their glitches and have a proper update.

I just updated to 4.3 on my Note2 and I haven't experienced any problems yet.

Ok, so in this case there is no Support for iphone or iOS users yet ?
I was waiting for this to come out for my iPhone but not sure if it is going to work.
