I can't wait to pair my JH16 with the DX50. Hopefully by the time I get my 16s iBasso will have a stable and feature packed firmware ready. Do you get any hissing with the two pairing?

Scale up to 10, hiss is a 2 even on High Gain. Its only just hardly audible to me. The X3 has more hiss, as does my Studio V and J3. The DX50 is very quiet and has no popping or added noise toggling up through the gain modes in a paused track. Excellent Performance.
That makes no sense, something wrong with your DX50 if that is the case. I have three different friends here who own the JH16 FreakPhazes and just tested out my DX50 with the firmware update, there isn't anything even remotely close to gripe about on the hiss factor and it doesnt change at all when flipping the switches up to mid to high. Also, low gain certainly doesn't have more hiss than the other two gain modes. Contact iBasso and ask them what is going on because that is not supposed to happen. I have no popping at start up, nor shut down. There was a pop and a funny Pachooommm sound on shut off pre-firmware. Post firmware cleared everything, not a peep out of it.
Something isn't right with your player. My JH16 FP are almost dead silent on high gain, hiss is just into the realm of audibility and is actually more silent than my Fiio X3. My player has no pops or odd sounds after I updated the firmware. My advice: reupload the latest firmware.
I just received the Moon-Audio Silver Dragon IEM cable a couple of days ago. It is that much a difference than the stock cable that I am thinking my stock cable was broke or something. I really dont know what happened. Suddenly the soundstage opened up completely and everything was flying around... :) I definitely recommend the moon-audio cable.
