Your card is formatted to FAT32?

Yes it is.

When I asked JDS that, I got this: 

 
Thanks for the great feedback!
 
Some C5 users have reported burn in to take about 50-100 hours. We always recommend natural usage; no special procedures are necessary."
 
It sounds good now with a few hours of use.  Hopefully it will slowly get even better.  Soundstage is very different than the BH.  A lot of what seemed to be "down" is now more "up."  This is especially true of bass, which seems to float more, instead of being, seemingly, on the floor.  Left/right separation (which has increased) is still on the sides, but the whole up/down/middle seems much more spacious than the BH.  
 
As for your disk, try using a different disk, and also try doing a firmware reset (pin in hole).  I'm running a 64 with no issues.

I noticed the left/right seperation increase, samples were imaging slightly different to BH. The main thing that jumped out to me was refinement in the mid range, plus a lot more power on tap. It just sounds a touch more professional or mature. I may pick up C5 eventually, depends What I think of FiiO x5 demo in a couple of weeks.

Lots more power!  Left/right seems... farther left/right.  The middle imaging is very interesting, things seem to be floating in the soundstage.  I don't hear a "floor," per se.  Vocals seem more present, trebles don't hiss, there is total silence between tracks, it just seems more grown-up than the BH.  It's taking me some listening time to get used to it, and of course I have to avoid playing it at too high a volume, which is very easy to do.  Currently I'm using it with gain off, bass boost off, sounds very good.  But I'm not a bass head, I don't want lots of thump in my music.  I also changed out my Comply tips (medium Isolation +) to large Isolations.  In blue.  :)  So things are different all around.

I ran about 20hrs. of pink noise from youtube through the C5 yesterday and last night. It may be placebo, but it seemed to open up a bit. Don't want to fool anyone though... gonna try it again tonight.

Exactly. More control, power goes a long way. C5 did a mighty fine job of driving full-size cans as well. 

You could probably cut down a large portion in rig size investing in a cable with right angle jacks.. (may as well go for silver) ;)

post #2018 of 2124

I don't think the right angle jacks would work- looks like they would block the controls.  Oh well.

post #2019 of 2124

how colorfly c3 would sound with a re-400 ?

post #2020 of 2124

Out on a whim I got a Sennherser's CX300 II and I find them just amazing with the C3. More bass than the Sony XBA-2 and I also think I like them more than my Momentums. Go figure,

post #2021 of 2124

Does anybody know if the new 128GB cards will work in the C3?

+1 I'd like to know too! My 64GB is almost full...

Got a new Mundorf silver/gold cable for my C3/C5 from onest11.  Short enough right angle plugs to work without blocking volume control on the C5.  Sounds good so far, can't wait to get it fully broken in.  Makes the devices much more carry-friendly with the shorter cable.  Though with the size of the C5, the C3 looks like the space shuttle on the back of its launching rocket.  The BH was really the same size as the C3, but the sound of the C5 more than makes up for the jump in size.  

post #2024 of 2124
Excellent ! Wasn't aware you went for one of his cables, onest11 does some nice work, looks a lot more user friendly now.
post #2025 of 2124

I am now thoroughly convinced... my C3 will not recognize a 64gb memory card. I am on my third memory card all different brands but all 64gb. I put one album on a Sony 64gb memory card and my C3 read "no file". I immediately put it in my dx50 and it played flawlessly. I then put it in my Studio 3rd anniversary and it also read "no file". I have read that it has to be formatted as a bootible device... what exactly does this entail??
