we'll soon have newer firmware update so maybe that will sound (hopefully) better than the previous versions? :D and if they fix some more bugs with it, that would be  a treat :D

For anyone that preordered recently from Mp4nation, they just upgraded the included earphones for the next batch to the new Brainwavz R3, which retail on their own for 110 bucks.  Its enough of a deal that I feel much better about the quirkiness I know I will have to put up with.  The deal however is too good to pass up now imo.

only thing is, the three times I ordered from mp4nation I ended up waiting 2 months the first time, 1 month the other two orders. But they always offer great deals, so I always end up going  back :rolleyes:

It plays them OK on mine with v1.2 firmware.

You are correct!  That's what makes the combination of BH2 and DX 50 a wonderful experience.  I should also add for a small price compared to what it delivers.  Enjoy........

I can swear I heard the same when upgraded :| especially the noise being a little more. I even posted about it somewhere here....

Please try it again , I am sure you can hear the SQ difference
Fw 1.2.0 for me to mid and low bass body , boomy , less clarity and harsh
Fw 1.1.6 more clarity , better and clear mid , better bass impact and detail , better music separation
I have tried direct hp out , SQ dx 50 with fw 1.2.0 below my Samsung Note 3
With fw 1.1.6 on par only different sound character .
My IMO

We are all the same here , you and every body can detect easy about the SQ different
Specially the clarity and bass impact .

Fwiw advancedmp3players.co.uk are now listing the dx50 for £199.00 delivered.  Not too bad.

The DX50/BH2 Combo Rocks

 

The DX50 has been bugging me for a while in that it sounds really good with great clarity and detail and even some texture, but is lacking in dimension making it feel flat, analytical/digital (in a bad way), and without any emotional quality. Even worse, the sound completely falls apart at lower listening levels with my better headphones. After reading about other's positive experience with the C&C BH2, I decided to try it again and wow, did that little guy ever cure the DX50's issues. However, I found that I had to use the correct HP to be able to take advantage of its strengths.

 

HD595: With my HD595 there was really no difference. Apparently while the HD595 excels at bringing out full detail, texture, and sub bass for optimal low level listening at night, it lacks the ability to use the additional power to transform the sound at higher listening levels.

 

Hidition NT6 Pro: Using my Hidition NT6 Pro, it was a day and night difference. Now I can feel the music with added dynamics - the bass and sub bass pops out as 3D with emotion playing off the sounds around it, the texture really pops across the spectrum, and even the midrange is sweeter and more lush. The BH2 allows the full extension on both sides of the spectrum that both the DX50 and NT6 Pro are capable. This combo also allows full dynamics at lower listening levels, although it really shines at moderate to high listening levels.

 

LCD2: Unfortunately, I have a short in the left side of my stock cable so I was unable to test with the combo, but the BH2 drives the LCD2 well using my C3 so I expect it to work well with the DX50 as well. I will update when I get my new Artemis Cables "Arrow" cable that is coming later this week.

Rudi, do you have a top ten favorite "line out, amp only" pairings with the DX50 in order of preference - maybe SQ rating scaled 1 to 10 for perspective? Do you have the BH2, and if so, where would it fit on the list?

post #4155 of 18427
Can someone who have bought from MP4Nation.net confirm if the warranty will be valid? Are they legit iBasso reseller ?
I have sent email to both parties and waiting for an answer.
(Meanwhile I have cancelled my order with iBasso and ordered with MP4Nation) I just couldn't resist that deal.
