Hisoundaudio Studio V 3rd Anniversary Edition Review - Page 11

post #151 of 1369

I'm curious myself. I don't know what to expect though....

I don't know man, my Studio's always been stable.  I've never had any major issues with it. 

 

I'm definitely interested in the new firmware, but will wait for others to try it out and report back...well maybe not?tongue.gif

Ni issues with firmware here. Works as a fairly simple straightforward UI.

For us who are pedantic it still does need some work ;). I'm curious are you able to go back in the menu to select other tracks opposed to being taken back to the root menu? This for me is the biggest issue with the UI and if they fixed that I'd be pretty happy.

Whoa, that would be great. :^)  I don't know, well yes I do, no I can't but I used to train and break horses, get thrown in the dirt and stomped on. Now put that up against taking 3 seconds to get to the music I want and it gets put in perspective. I see nothing wrong with your desire though and I am sure they can get to the root of it. 

 

So how do you do a firmware update on the 3rd Anv?

NIce phones. Bet they really come to life with the 3rd Anv. 

Fully agree. I thought the 901 a bit better on a quick audition but it's a different animal all together. I find the ANV 3 a very slightest bit warm. I don't find the top hot at all as some have mentioned though it wont hide that character on a transducer. I also find the bass VG, it does have a subtle roll in the sub bass. Hard to notice. All that said, it just plays music and brings a performance home.bigsmile_face.gif Have you tried BTN Sound on and off? There's always debate on it. I use off and I think Lee still leaves it on.

I leave it on. I don't notice much difference.

Try to focus on the vocals jamato. You can induce the change even when the music is playing. You won't have as much bite to the vocals with btn off. With it on you get a more intimate sound overall. More clarity I feel. With it off you get a bigger sound stage, vocals appear more distant. Not as much energy IMO.

I feel more fine detail and openness with it off. More presence on.

I feel it sounds duller with it off with less detail overall. Not a big amount but enough for me to appreciate it. I feel the sound staging is more focused with better placement. Depending on the tracks though I feel things can get lost at times when btn if off :P. But for some tracks I'l prefer it off as well. Normally tracks that are too forward I'll do this.

Omg its very strange but true!!!
post #162 of 1369
I'm using rocoo btw. Not studio v.
post #163 of 1369
Hard to imagine how on earth how studio v is better sounding than rocoo cuz it alr sounds so so good. Gosh.
post #164 of 1369
Vocals became forward and lively, better separation and imaging. Really had to listen out for it on my ad900x but once you hear it you'll appreciate it and soon get used to it. Overall more fun sounding!

It is a bit softer but I think you can hear further in. Definitely trade offs and good either way.
