i only found that the electric bass instrument are fading.
havent try at an amp audio but pretty much the same.
i tried with my shure se535 while my friend try with JH5.
well.... maybe its becoz im not a good listener. >.< lol
I think the change is more prominent on sensitive IEMs than others. It is most prominent on the FT334 and XBA4, but much less so on the W4, H200, ER4S, RE400 for me. I also think it is more of the density of sound that got affected for these sensitive phones than say the FR or EQing of the sound changed. But the "thinner" sound on these IEMs definitely gave me a perception of less bass, and less warmth, and to a certainly extend less musical and many tracks.
The 1.21 firmware also caused my unit to start having SD card mounting issues that I never had before with 1.00. One or both of the cards would suddenly got unmounted during playback. This had happened 3 times in the past 36 hours or so. Restarting the unit fixed this but still an annoyance. Hope at least it does fix this very issue for others who reported having problem with 1.00.
