The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.8.0 - Page 1114

post #16696 of 16703

I find really hard to decide,since I'm open to whatever brand!in terms of home audio,things are way easier.my example,I went from jbl scs to E30 and now to L830 as front speakers.but as Coil said,it seems that I don't know anything about everything,but I just got and love some speakers,jbl L830, that many dream to have.my sound signature is weird,someone else says and those who pretend to be a GOD here... well,never mind!

I want to change my denon ahc-300...maybe they are not so good,but it's hard to decide! they have dual 11mm driver and now I'm thinking how a single smaller driver can sound better.also,there are dynamic drivers and balanced drivers,and not to mention that there are earphones which use balanced and dynamic drivers in each housing!testing would be nice,but almost impossible without buying!

I've read that there is not much difference between ie8 and ie80,just a bass difference,sub bass more powerful in ie80...maybe they are indeed better.I think I'll go with ie80,but I laso have the choice of shure 425!

If you prefer dark sounding iems, i recommend you Shure se215 special edition.
It has arguably large sound stage for iems, punchy bass, natural vocals, and sweet mids.
This thing can produce good detail too.

I forgot to mention that it looks damn good.

When you show it to casual listener, they'd immediately notice that it's not the typical earphone they'd find in local store

Hi, I have read through the many recent posts on SU 1.3.3 but am finding it difficult to install. I am using the 1.8 firmware on my DX50. I have downloaded the SU 1.3.3 and done a copy and paste into the DX50. I can see the SU 1.3.3 on the DX50. When I do the "hold button when rebooting" routine I don't get the "format" menu that is discussed. Am I therefore correct that I have notsuccesfully added SU 1.3.3? Thanks

Copy & paste alone won`t do anything. You have to go player advanced menu and do update system, then after install delete .img installation file and next do factory reset from advanced menu. After that SU is installed and You can try out that hidden bootup menu.

 

Edit: ...and SU is packed as .7z file, make sure You have unpacked it before copy. For more info on installation check this: http://www.head-fi.org/a/ibasso-dx50-faq#user_update

Hi, thanks, but I am still missing some vital part of this process. I have done as you describe but I still seem to be on firmware v8. I also have v6 firmware on the DX50 - should this be deleted? I deleted a file called album.img, is that the file you were referring to?

Thanks, I will have a browse through this link. :)

1. Delete everything on DX50 internal memory.

2. Unpack Sound Unlocked .7z file. Unpacked it says update.img - copy this to DX50 internal memory. Disconnect DX50 from PC.

3. Go to DX50 settings menu > Advanced > System update.

4. After install has finished and DX50 has rebooted connect to PC again and delete everything on internal memory. Disconnect from PC.

5. Go to DX50 settings menu > advanced > factory reset.

6. Sound Unlocked should be installed now and system info should show up as 1.5.0.

7. Now You can try settings from that hidden bootup menu.

8. Enjoy!
