Oh, yes you can recognize immediately their DAPs.
They all have a big ridiculous volume knob.

Lots of room in there though, with all the money you emptied out of them to buy it.

There is no professional DAP on the market... what a shame

I have professional IEMs :bigsmile_face: but i must buy stupid audiophile DAPs :blink:

 

Professional standard IEMs cable are too gummy for me (it adheres on some clothes) so i've buy an audiophile cable (BTG) that not have this problem, this is the good side of the audiophile world :beerchug:

 

Please is someone able to say them (FIIO) that Apple (and AK) put their connectors on the top of their DAP because of they have a docking station (to listen them mainly with loudspeakers, headphone jack is secondary).

And it's amazingly stupid to put them on the top if it is no docking station.

You keep saying this over and over, we get the point
post #1028 of 7658

Yes, i know

The use of IEM outdoor is not adapted... it is better use enormous headphones.

I'm not an audiophile.

I can't think as them.

Habitually ALWAYS buy professional stuff... but there is no professional DAP on the market.

Strictly speaking, there is none because pros probably wouldn't need a "pro" equipment purely for playback, since the market assumes they'll be needing playback when they get back in the studio where their interface/DACs and CDPs or other sources are. But technically speaking, there are pro gear that can be used as DAPs:

 

 

 
This becomes less portable when you use a more useful battery pack with it. It has a microphone set-up best suited for recording one or two sound sources, like an interview, and has battery life for such, but for some reason somebody thought they need DSD for properly recording two voices. The other disadvantage was that, being "pro," it worked with pro formats - DSD and WAV, no uncompressed smaller files like FLAC, much less compressed audio. Interface harks back to my slightly larger Creative 30gb HDD player.

Professionals uses mainly ipods... in their private life.

Recorders UIs are horrible.

Exactly why no one saw the need for a "pro" DAP. If that Korg had a more usable battery life I could totally live with its UI - it's very simple, true, but as long as you can live with its bare-bones design, you can just consider yourself lucky as you read through all sorts of posts ranging from "album art not shown" and "tracks not showing up after SD scan/only visible in browse mode" all the way to "crashed and bricked" on some DAPs' threads.

Well I personally wouldn't be doing that unless I'm actually using it as a field recorder. Under direct sunlight half the time means "outdoors" (ie not "sitting by the window") and over here "outdoors" can mean "goodbye (device)" as some homeless kid whose idiot family who can't cut it in the economy but made too many children runs past you and grabs it so he can buy bread. I think the only places where I fiddle with my device (including taking calls) "outdoors" are inside our campus or inside open space/garden-type malls and even then I avoid putting my phone screens on max brightness to minimize battery consumption.

:popcorn:... Modern phones like the moto G have a so big autonomy that you can never care about settings.

i charge mine one time per week.

In normal use, the DAP is in your hand or in your pocket...

 

If someone want to access to your hands or your pants without your permission he must do that :

 

No?

How will be the sound ?

the quality of its sound will be inferior to the X3 and the X5 ! and what about the sound signature to touch a large public ?
