The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.4 - January 24, 2016 - Page 176

Volume through the line out is variable so yes its controlled by the DX50. Maybe a future update could implement a fixed volume option or even a separate volume for when it detects a headphone or LO.

When DX50 is connected with amp (I am using Pico Power), is the volume of line out can still be controlled by DX50? As I think line out will bypass the internal amplifier. Thanks.

 For above I think a lot of people are getting popping noises they are normal.

I usually plug in my earphones only after the pop. It's audible from the device itself as a distinct "tick". Saves my ears and earphones from the pop.

That's actually recommended for your iem's too. The pop is likely due to the sudden presence of DC output to the internal amp.

Couldn't agree more. I have the DX100 and the DX50 with me and I find myself reaching for the DX50 most of the time. Yes, the DX100 has better imaging making it slightly more natural sounding, but I'd say that the DX50 is overall the better DAP, regardless of price. There, I said it. Bring on the flames.

However, this last week I've been primarily using my 4.A CIEM after a month or two not using it, and I forgot how much I enjoy it.

Hearing the 4.A/ A.i is a good match increases my chances at having a good pairing here.

You will be enjoying the 8.A with the DX50 as well :wink_face:

Yep, that's the sound of the amp coming on. And it's absolutely nothing - you should hear the DX100! Plugging in your iems before turning it on is not something you'll do more than once. That big amp goes POP!

I wished that iBasso would solve that issue.

I have had some amazing laugh out loud moments at the quality these IEMs have. Grado has this magical ability to put you right there on the stage or in the studio with the performers smily_headphones1.gif Personally I will not be looking for any other IEMs as I feel 100% happy with the Grado GR10's

Thanks for the input Jon. Will check this out. Cheers

I think they said it is because of the amp section and it can't be solved with firmware updates or something. Users either sold the dap or get a habit to turn it on before plugging in iems/headphones :happy_face1:

It's a tradeoff for the crazy low (> 0.1 ohm) output impedance: No caps in the final output stage means a cleaner sound, lower output impedance, zero headphone protection. It's not like you'll see drivers flying out of your iems, but you will hear it, that's for sure.

I don't think anyone would want to flame you for being honest to speak from heart. :wink_face:

Do you hear any scratching noise when you adjust the volume?

post #2637 of 18426

I wish iBasso would put up info for the DX50's output power, every other manufacturer puts up this info...

This is Head-Fi and I just stated that a $239 DAP is an overall better product than a $830 DAP. I'm pretty sure someone will come along to tell me that I have tin ears, the wrong source files, bad cables, poor synergy and that I should have been using WAV vinyl rips, not FLAC files.

 You have tin ears, the wrong source files, bad cables, poor synergy and you should have been using WAV vinyl rips, not FLAC files.:wink_face:

Seriously though, I agree with you. Overall, the DX50 is a much more useable player. I wished that iBasso would have the DX100 sound in a DX50 package.
