ah yes, i've also used the plastic version. it's the same process. the black cylindrical part doesn't need to be cut out as it just screws into the right angle part. you now need a strong plastic adhesive to make sure everything stays put.

So wait, is it plastic or metal? :confused:

 

Also, if it is plastic, you should be able to file it down right?

the ones that i got are plastic. no need to file them. do you have the neutrik plug with you? it's easier to see it once you have the part.

I think Karloil is confusing these with another connector... The Neutrik right-angle 3.5mm are most definitely metal, I've soldered heaps of those.

I had a mini to mini cable with silver Neutrik jacks so I know how they are built, but I have no experience with the black one.

i'm quite sure with the neutrik plugs - at least with the ones that i have. the silver ones are made of metal, then the black ones are plastic, soldered a lot of them too.

There must be a plastic variant that I'm not aware of then :smile:

 

Doesn't matter if the barrel is plastic or metal if were throwing it out anyway though. Alright back to the DX50 - Who here thinks it's awesome?

It seems like it is metal from the website, but it's probably best to stay on topic. 

 

Back to the DX50 like Soren says :)

The fact that I have that very plug on my iem cable and the black paint is slowly wearing off so you can see the brass underneath also indicates that it is not plastic. 

 

So, anybody need a DX100? I'm too much in love with the DX50 for the 100 to get any use these days.

:tongue_smile: hahaha we can agree to disagree that the black one is both plastic and metal. i'm tapping my used and new plugs right now and its pretty plastic to me. the threads on the right angle are plastic. so they may be selling plastic on this part of the globe versus to where you are which they sell metal. :confused_face:

 

anyway, back to topic....all hail the dx50! :beerchug:

My samsung battery came and just did some ab ab comparisons. . Yes the samsung battery sound better. Bass is tighter n extend further. Soundstage is wider. I check both battery voltage both same same. Althought from dx50 battery level the samsung is lower but it sound so much effortless compare to original pisen batrery from ibasso

yes! another believer. I think we should all listen to what nakedtoes says, after all he did join headfi in 2004 yet has only 274 posts, which means he only speaks the truth! :P

This hobby becomes dangerous isn't it? Stealing and all :rolleyes:

 

J/K, of course go for it especially if you can hear the differences between batteries :happy_face1:
