I find the UI, when not buggy, to function really well. Rather smooth at times, and to be honest, those who are complaining are those who are taking things for granted. Its not as bad as it is said, and it surely functions on par with some other DAPs. I guess all of this would be useless information, since I came from a Colorfly C3, which was jam packed with bugs and the UI was horrendous. tongue.gif

I've used an X3 before, and its UI, I have to admit, was very stable. Sound quality wasn't to match the DX50, however.

I find that when you have your fixed playlist/album, all the physical buttons available on the DX50 is enough to cover your basic needs of pause/play, forward/rewind.

I love amping as much as possible LoL... but find it not the case with DX50 and iem (it is hard to discern any improvement, unless goes full blow DAC and AMP bypass... ), maybe headphones are different....

Thanks!

The glorious thing with headphones, is that you won't be experiencing hiss when not amping. I only amp to tone down the bass thump of the M-100's. I do enjoy the punchy-ness, but not too much.

The problem is he won't be able to stop reading the head-fi, and that will still hurt. But I applaud his self control to battle the addictions.

Hi, can you share any details on this MOD?

 

Sold my AK100 too, but would be good to know what it is and in case you have heard a unit with the mod, any impressions would be welcome.

You'll have to wait a month to find out.

Most likely the resistor bypass to get the output impedance from 22 ohms to less then 1 ohm.  Its talked about, at great length, in the AK100 thread...

I think he might be asking about who does the mod...

The Ibasso DX50 kicks some serious butt on the go... 

 

 

...but the DX100 is still king of my desk.

Nope. It's a new IEM made by the "Wizard" who has now left Heir audio.

I did read about that one, but thought it was more pricey than $65. Hence the confusion.

That too. But really must first understand what the mod is/does.

 

Thanks both.

No, They're not from Heir Audio. Here's a picture of them next to my 8.A's:
