Yes! Yes it is! That's what's it called! I just called it a Poker set box because I didn't know what it was exactly..

They are great and based on the very popular TWFK drivers. After my experience with the B2s (I thought that they were good at the time), I promised to never listen to another TWFK, but I listened to this at the NM and I was really impressed. I asked Billy about it and he told me that it was a TWFK and I was quite shocked.
Imagine a less harsh and more bassy B2/DBA-02 with the same detail and separation and you have the AX7s. They are the best built TWFK driver IEMs, having a metal housing and have a nice copper/silver cable.
It also has a pair of treble filters if you like a more "traditional" TWFK sound. 

Okay, it might not have been you, or I might have misread. My apologies.

Anyways, onto the AX7, I also heard from Billy it was running the infamous TWFK. With your description of its sound, that indeed, sounds like it would sound like a dreamy Knowles' drivers IEM - not too harsh, but just right. Luckily, I've heard the DBA, so I kinda understand what you're getting at. smily_headphones1.gif

Also, I'm reading off the NM website, and it says the AX7 is running a pure silver wire?

If that's the case, that's even better!

You should try it sometime. 

I heard it and bought it straight away! A bargain at $189 really.

I shall!

Let's hope you don't regret it any time soon. wink.gif

EDIT: Fear not, we won't derail the thread anymore.

Albums artwork are not being transferred into the player.  These are CD ripped to my media player. They are wave files being moved into the player.

 

Can anybody assist?

 

Thanks

 

Don't think we can embed album art onto .WAV files themselves and the DX50 only support artwork that is embedded into the files.

Maybe in future firmware they can add support to read .GIF or .JPG inside the file folder for file types that don't support embedded images like the .WAV
 
Or you can convert the files into FLAC which support embedded artwork.

Heard they need to relaunch under a new name so I suspect some trademark infringement issues....

 

That's my understanding as well....Let's hope Trevor comes back stronger than ever and hopefully with some IEM cables that were supposedly in the works. To keep it on topic, that would be a fantastic cable to use with the DX50!

 

Keep the dream alive:

You don't remember the 70's do you? :p Corduroy pants = not stealth. Anybody could hear you coming.

Hmm could it be that the battery indicator is acting a bit weird?
My DX50 had been running for 13 hours straight (burn-in blablabla) and last time I checked, the indicator showed me that it is still 50% charged.
Ten minutes later and my unit shuts off because it ran out of battery.
No, it wasn't just a random crash. When I tried to turn it back on again, the indicator showed that the battery is 100% empty.
Charging it right now.

Did anyone else observed this "bug"?

it may have to do with calibration of the battery.

It's so unpredictable, last night it looks like I had 50% charge then all of a sudden constant restart. I moved my spare battery back in and it was good to go. A percentage indicator would be quite welcome, as long as it is indicating the right level.

In my case I can't even keep it on long enough to see the 100% empty, now that I think of it I have never seen it showing any other statuses (like the iPod with the battery indicator turning red).

That's why it's called DX50. LOL.

Is there a direct comparison between DX50 and AK100 somewhere?

 

Thing is, that I listened them both for a very short amount of time (my DX50 went to my friends hands for a while) and when paired with my Heir Audio 8.A my observations are:

 

- DX50 has smoother highs than AK100

- DX50 is more natural sounding

- DX50 has treble a bit rolled of (compared to the one from AK100 that is)

 

FW was 1.1.6.

 

To be honest there were moments when AK100 was a bit sharp (hard to believe, as 8.A is very smooth sopunding CIEM), while nothing like that has happened with DX50. But as I wrote above, my listening was very brief, that's why I'd appreciate if someone could dirtect me to DX50 and AK100 comparison.
