My set arrived today and sound great.
I've been trying to get apt-X to work with my MacBook Air but I've had no luck, the codec shows as SBC. I know apt-X works on the MB Air as my HBS730 shows as using the codec aptX.
I emailed the aftersales email on the Bluedio website hoping for support but thought I would ask here if anyone has managed to get apt-X working with a laptop or computer with the Bluedio r+?
The sound quality is still great but I'm one of those tech geeks that like to get the best features working just because they can!
I've also got the USB-SPI tool on order so I can hopefully get apt-X working with my HTC One, although I can't see the firmware download on the Bluedio website, so that might be my first stumbling block. Again maybe one of you guys might be able to give me a link to the files?
Look forward to hearing from you guys, and hope that you're all enjoying the Bluedios r+ as much as I am.
Just to let everyone know, this is the response I got back from Bluedio;
Thanks very much for your coming letter as well as your support of our products.
I am sorry the aptx function has been closed by the engineer. It may could not been adjusted and released out unless
you have a USB-SPI tool. And pitifully this tool is only sold in China.
And yet, honestly speaking, i am not a tech guy, know little about the adjustings. The engineer also suggests better not adjust
by yourselves in case of any unknown damages to the headphones.
If you have any further idea, please let me know.
So I'm cancelling my order for the USB-SPI tool as I think it sounds like too much trouble.
Never mind, I still like the headphones and will still recommend them to my friends!
there's prolly some hack you can do to enable it.
Same with the EQ adjustments that we discussed earlier.
USB-SPI cable cany1?
No Bluedio product has aptX, despite their claims that they do. False advertising.
I can give instructions on how to purchase those usb-spi tools if someone wants to try it. I no longer have my R+ to do so:
Find one here, and copy the link into a Taobao forwarding service such as mistertao.com. They will purchase it for you, and ship it to you.
The Question is are the hardware capable of aptx.
having it disabled doesn't mean it it cannot be re-enabled right?
Don't know about that, and it doesn't seemed possible. I based that opinon on the fact, that a lot of KNOWLEDGEABLE people have TRIED to enabled it, and NOBODY has succeeded. In addition, the info coming straight from Bluedio is not encouraging. Leads me to believe it was intended false advertisement, or they back out of paying the license fees. If you notice, they make it REALLY hard for people trying to get this done. Then if a buyer has the time, know how, and does all the instruction, the word from Bluedio is "it is not a good idea".. I mean, come on, we don't have to be rocket scientists to see where they are coming from. Now, the proof of my opinion, is the point that not ONE buyer has got aptx to work on Bluedio headsets, not one!!
