The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.5.0 - Page 172

post #2566 of 14493

Hooray, re-installed firmware v1.16, now it remembers what track I last played. That was getting so annoying remembering where I left off last everytime I switched it on

post #2567 of 14493

is it really caused by burn in or new  firmware?

Too many to have the burnitiss, something definitely changed else an army of brains got rewired wink.gif

Well, this is Head-Fi after all.

 
That being said, I'm really digging the sound of my DX50 but I'm not sure if it has changed at all in the week I've had it. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm coming from the DX100 and not a warmer source like many other DX50 owners who merely adopted the clarity? I was born in it, molded by it...

I came from an iBasso PB2 so not exactly warm

You got a point there, this is my first audiophile class dap so no reference other than Apple products. Out of the box I found it quite bright on the treble side, other frequency bands were fine. When I got the 1.1.5 firmware I felt the highs have tamed for me. I still feel the they are bright and my ears get irritated after few hours of listening but got more bearable. I watched the DX100 for a long time was initially excited but price and mostly size kept me away from it. I gather by your posts the DX100 seems to be a very good dap.

Shoot them an email and ask, they are quick to respond and very helpful on providing statuses. smily_headphones1.gif

I was wondering whether iBasso will turn this into a USB DAC like Fiio are doing. If they do, this will be an even better DAP than it already is. I might email iBasso about this.

I just tried the iPhone 5S and 5C yesterday and they do sound warm compared to the DX50. Noticeably warmer but no less enjoyable. In fact, I thought the iPhones were performing pretty well compared to the DX50! The iPhones do produce some interference to the sound when the screen is in use, especially when scrolling.

 

The new iPhones are definitely much better sounding than an iPod touch and iPod nano though, which I thought is strange since those were supposed to be music playing devices....

 

If I had one of those iPhones (5S/5C/5) I don't think I would pay to get a DX50 for the little bit of improvement in sound if the iPhone can already drive my IEMs sufficiently.

Let us know how that goes lin. I'm still waiting on mine :( It's been sat in customs the last couple of days.

For trance music which is better Fiio x3 or Dx50 ?

The DX100 is very good, but using IEMs I wouldn't say it easily beats the DX50... On some tracks, the imaging is better, with a larger soundstage from the DX100 but it's not like it's a "night and day" difference or anything like that.

I thought that it was only speculative that Fiio X3 will get a firmware upgrade enabling USB DAC, and ever officially announced/confirmed. That being said, I sure hope iBasso does enable USB DAC too. What's iBasso's support email?
