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.

Low gain has more hiss than mid or high gain with JH16 FP. Hiss is very audible. I'd say it's halfway from black to unlistenable hiss. Acceptable but sort of disappointed. Popping at startup.

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 wonder if I'm experiencing this issue because mine is a JH3A unit... with twice as much cables and wiring and what not making it more sensitive...

What silver cables do you guys recommend? :)

Toxic Cables Silver Widows....There is a bit of a wait after ordering, but they are terrific.

+1 for silver widows. They are extraordinary cables.

I use http://stefanaudioart.com/headphone%20cable%20E%20Series%20JH%2016%20Pro, fantastic cables, plus you have a thirty day money back guarantee, no other cable manufacturer offers that. My JH16's with SAA cable.

Nice looking cables! :D

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.
