Dang.... i'm itching to get home so i dont miss the delivery truck! still stuck at work... hahaha
Just tell your company you are sick of waiting for the DX50 and need to take a sick leave.
It would just sound weird as there is no amplification at all. Also, I've read that it damages headphones.
Mine arrived this morning. I ordered through mp4nation early last week so pretty nice turn around. I'm assuming it's a batch 4. Upgraded to 1.2 There is a playlist option but haven't figured out how to use it yet. Still need to get all the way through the thread.
So far with about 6 hours of playtime on it, I'm still mixed on the audio quality, although it does seem to be improving / growing on me. I'm driving primarily a set of UM Miracles running 16/44 flacs. Quality wise right now it is above my HTC one-x phone with PowerAmp playing the same flacs, but below my d10 cobra (which has a *lot* of hours on it) being fed by optical from winamp. Definitely giving up on detail and spaciousness from best to worst in the three above. I'm definitely experiencing some randomness in the ui on 1.2. Like choosing genres sending me to now playing. On the from factory 1.1.6 version I experienced several cases where the song would play with no audio output and I had to reset the player to get audio on the same track. Haven't seen that on 1.2. I saw the volume bug that others have reported but on turning down. It turned all the way down to zero and then wouldn't change without a reset.
it seems my 4.ai are just too sensitive for the dx50 and hisses on every gain level. Has anyone come up with an idea to combat the hiss of sensitive IEMs other than trying another IEM or using an amp?
Would one of those Etymotic ER4P to ER4S adaptors help? I though about it, but grabbed a pair of H-200 for portable use instead.
