Big news, I've found out if I look at my DX50 the wrong way the SQ worsens, but if I stroke it fondly the SQ goes through the roof! Turns out the DX50 is also affected by our minds! let alone batteries and chargers :P

The problem. Emailed ibasso without a response at the moment. Has anybody else experienced this. There advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

I assume that you did a reset by holding the power and volume up button simultaneously?   If not, you can try that.  You can also trying pulling the battery.   It is possible that your device is actually on but in a crashed state.  Recharging wouldn't make a difference if that is the case.

Note : I use single ended for fair comparison

PB 2 is clear as the winner

PB2 has Better pronounce , more balance , and more refine
Better black background
D12 : not as fine like PB 2 , a bit harsh

My IMO

Can you elaborate about the sound stage and separation and imaging/depth between D12 vs PB2?

Since it is halloween season in the US, i paid a witch to cast a spell to make my dx sound better.   Afterwards, i could swear the bass and soundstage was better.   It only cost me 10 bucks.  I call it the 666 mod.

Hi Lin

Yes it is , you can charge your dx 50 use any kind of micro USB 5 Volt 1 MAh do you have.
During you plug in the charger , please hear the same song for every charger.
Like jamato8 already explained clean dc output between one to another charger is different
The battery is heart from our portable charger , it is very important for me

Note : I use seldom 2 MAh , it can charge the battery faster than 1 MAh , but 2.0 MAh can shorten your battery life faster than if you charge with 1 MAh .

My IMO

As long you have already wall charger from your Samsung S3 , this Samsung S3 wall charger is very good too.

My opinion not only Bass region , for me all frequencies are more balance and more black background.

I am sorry about your dx 50

But it shouldn't make a difference when the charger is not connected right?

Pb 2 has more :

Soundstage : is wider and has better depth
Imaging : has better imaging too
Separation : is on par but cleaner you can hear more detail and feel better separation
More black background

My IMO

The little C&C BH amp added from line out does DX50 proud.

I was thinking it would be a downgrade, but this little amp always surprises me months after purchase, why I just can't sell  even though I've listed and taken it down in the past, she just keeps coming back as one of those pieces of gear I rediscover. Offers better refinement and especially soundstage width. For $100 amp, the features and run time it really is to cool for school imo. I was surprised when firing it up this afternoon. The bass punch with LF feature is pretty gnarly if I don't say so myself.

Not so good with ER4S (Tralucent T1 is better for that) My T-Peos H-200 sound great with BH amp.

If you have DX50 and H-200 by all means I can easily recommend adding the little amp. Mainly because H-200/BH have already made crazy synergy recommendations in the main C&C BH thread so feeding the amp a clean signal like DX50 offers you instant win/win. Another IEM that goes well with BH amp is TF10, very good synergy there.

I could not recommend BH amp for ER4S lovers though, they're much better off with T1, for example.

H20, you still have the TF10?

No, I wish I did still, having owned x2 pairs in the past I just know TF10 would pair well with DX50, I have a sure gut feeling about it. Especially if you threw a silver or silver plated cable on TF10 lifting that tonality further towards cool and transparent. (for my tastes) I think they'd make a really good rig for the price. I might get another pair one day, just need to find a decent price, as I wouldn't pay over $140 for them and H-200 is clear upgrade imo.
