If its under warranty have them do the RMA for you. Most likely just battery but you never know.... Maybe something could be causing the excessive drain besides just the battery itself. Maybe even the charging circuitry could be at fault.

I'm an owner of AK120 and a pair of Shure SE846.

But I feel that they do not produce the sound quality I expect them to.

I feel that the soundstage is not big enough, and the bass seems to lack a bit of power.

Searching around on the internet, I learn that changing the earphone leads and buying an amp may be my methods of upgrade.

Can anyone tell me if they really make a big difference......

If so, which option shall I go for first?

And, any suggestions?

I have both, Ref 1 and Shure Se846... bass is much more present on Ref 1, soundstage wider too.

Hi, which firmware do you use ? I have some issues with the 1.40. My AK120, does not read my files after 30 minutes or 1 hour of use. I have to reboot it. Also, I found it very very slow, the UI is a shame at this price point.
