I suggest perhaps you wait a bit? There should be new models coming out shortly.

Can you be more specific?:) Where to look for news? I cant even find their website.

 

Would be awesome, if it would be of same simplicity and premium feel but slightly more pocket friendly (slimmer) with support for high res. Thats my only two minor problems with Studio 3rd. But i would buy it immediately anyway, if i just know how. I checked that polish shop and wrote them email yesterday, but nothing yet. I also wrote to all shops in Czech republic (thats where i live) with headphones but they dont know, that something like player from Hisound exists or dont want to bother ordering one unit. They all sell Fiio, Ibasso and Astel & Kern, Cowons and Sony and some cheap things and thats it. Only shop in whole Europe selling Studio 3rd is that polish one and i thing, that they wont send it out of Poland.

 

I think its misfortune, that Studio players are not available in Europe. Too bad for Hisoundaudio and for possible customers. Fiio and Ibasso players are quite popular here. Simplistic and tasteful look of Studio player would definitely hit the spot in Europe, more than in US and especially in Japan, where it must have blink blink look, colors, wifi, caraoke and king size display (yes, im talking about you, ZX1).

If you read the first few posts you will get the answers.

The main difference I have read (I have never had the original studio) is the reduction of the 'hiss' which I do not hear in the 3rd anv version I have.
post #1310 of 1482

It has to do with gain as well. The V plays louder and drives cans the best. With added gain comes a higher noise floor.

I've had both for some time.

They definitely sound similar than different, as someone described to me once akin to a different firmware only. The normal version sounds fractionally brighter and a little sterile or 'raw' whilst the 3rd Anv is a touch coloured (in a good way), which eases that sterile sound. the 3rd also has a little more musicality to Its signature, better PRaT. Like first mentioned the differences are negligible depending how transparent the headphone/IEM being used. I also felt the 3rd had a little more power on tap (little bit)

The problem for me is my two units standard and 3rd Anv had exactly the same hiss levels, if anything the 3rd was just a little less. This was kind of a deal breaker for me as the entire purchase of my 3rd Anv was exactly that, to lessen hiss.

Other people who have owned both do not hear the same as I did (hiss), so Its a mystery indeed.

I don't think the 3rd has more prat or more power. In fact the V seems stronger simply because it has more gain and can reach full volume into high impedances where I don't think the 3rd can (still plays loud). I agree about the color. The hiss difference is related to gain. The V has a bit more hiss because it has a bit more gain. For instance, the RoCoo Ba has lowest gain and lowest hiss.

With the differences I've heard between two of the same product several times on hand beside me, I believe it's amazing we come to any mutal conclusions here sometimes. (no joke)

I finally find, where to buy anniversary edition. http://www.noisymotel.com/product.asp?ProductID=426

 

price: 389$

shipping to Europe: 30 Australian dollars

+ fees and taxes (not cheap at all)

 

Im not sure, if i want it that bad. Especially when soem new player from Hisound might be on the way. For that price, i would have x5 or dx90 and i wouldnt have to wait and pay for shipping, when it needs repair.

 

Any owner of Studio from EU? Where did you buy your piece? Anyone in EU thinking on selling?

I do agree on the Rocco BA having least hiss though. =)

Very good reliable unit.

In my honest opinion for that money I'd look at DX90 instead (which I have heard on extended home audition) . I believe goodvibes can chime in with some extra guidance having/had both.

i wont buy Ibasso or Fiio. Im totally sold for Hisound player. No way back. I like Rocoo version as well. It hasnt battery life but its cheaper and slimmer and enough of power for my es10. So, i think i will take any of those 3, once i find EU seller of new or used one with decent price.

Haha, I know what that's like friend, the Hisound units are quite intriguing or luring, they feel pretty robust in hand too. I remember wanting a 3rd Anv badly for sometime.

You could always try your luck on getting this Rocco BA shipped.

If not contacing Jack Fu directly via email might get a slightly better deal than Noisy Motel.

Email can be found here.
