Beats me.  Ibasso wasnt much help.  If it matters, i do not listen to a lot of rock, hiphop, pop that might mask the hiss.  All my files are flac.  I am on 1.2os. I was thinking of trying a 75ohm resister 3.5mm but not sure what that would do to the sound of the 4.ai.

What's with the tags? 

Wasn't like this before the update.

Did you factory reset and rescan the sd card after the update?

Yep.

Using an amp takes care of that due to the higher impedance through the amp. Once I use my iem with an amp the hiss is gone.

I was under the impression that the DX50 would be a one-stop shop for IEM users...I was wrong.

I use the HE600 and the JH13 with excellent results.

The hiss must come from DX50's internal amp then?

Has anyone tried the DX50 with the Vsonic GR07 BE?

Even if the amp hisses slightly with the iems, as soon as I crank the volume I find the music covering the hiss so it just sounds worst than it really is. It also depends on the pair, one pair I don't have the issue while the other is a bit apparent.

I have been listening dx50 for 5-6 hours and I love the pairing of sm64 and dx50. I have zero hiss. I guess it is because of high ohm value of sm64 like 98 ohms.

Go to the "Reviews" section of the DX50 product page on Head-fi and look for the guy using an UERM.

Where are all of these OI statements coming from? According to iBasso, the DX50's OI is <.5 ohms

From my review (Click to show)

Vsonic Gr07 - Spacious, slightly warm sound. The treble can be a little harsh at times, but can be EQ'd. The gr07 makes for a nice budget combo with the dx50. There is no noticeable hiss with the gr07s thankfully.

I don't have the BE but the mkii is great with the dx50. If the BE doesn't have any treble or sibilance issues than it would probably be an even better combo with the dx50 considering that the dx50 is fairly neutral or perhaps slightly bright to some.
