    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    I don‘t know about you, but my AP80 heats up a LOT when charged at even 2a. I would be willing to bet that over time, slower charging would increase total battery cycle life by at least ~60%. As for the comments about phones, I have an Axon 7 with good audio quality, but it still doesn’t beat...

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    The battery circuitry reduces current flow. The source provides the current flow. The charger providing 2400mah would charge the 800mah battery in 20 minutes if not for the resistor. The resistor is linear, as higher and lower power chargers still cause a difference in the rate of charge...

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    Batteries are not a load when it isn't charging. Earlier I believe you were suggesting that you can't charge an 800mah battery off a 800mah source because it wouldn't charge. The circuitry of the device can't possibly drain that much because the AP80 does Not have a battery life of one hour...

    I've been using the semkarch CNT 1 for many weeks now, and it's quite good. (cable absolute horse manure) Certainly improvement over the DT6. However I ordered a Pair of Blon bl 03 for a friend as I heard they were similar to the CNT 1. Immediately after listening to them for only about 5 songs...

    To answer the guy before who was asking about AP80 vs m0, the perception I have gotten from everyone who has compared them both has said that the AP80 has a noticeable or even much higher sound quality than the m0.

    I've been using the DT6 for maybe 6 months, and love them, but love them even more now that I realised that they severely benefit from EQ. After listening to a sine sweep 20-20,000, I put +1db on 2khz, -5db on 4khz +1db on 8khz It sounds far far closer to flat now. after doing it I don't even...

    Hi, I'm looking at the CNT as a general upgrade from the DT6 and perhaps a good iem to use at the gym. How much sound do they naturally block out? I'm also considering the TRN BT20S or TRN BT3S, or Fiio RC-BT cables to add onto the CNT, particularly the first because it has ANC. I'm always...

    Hi, thanks for the heads up. Would you recommend the fiio cable? The TRN BT20S cable looks like a good option too.

    I had the V80 for a long time, and the cca c10 was a clear upgrade from it in every way, soundstage, bass, treble especially, the V80 completely lacked detail and were hot trash. The DT6 was again a clear upgrade from the cca c10. in my opinion of course. Im very happy with my AP80 and DT6 with...

    I'm a big fan of the AP80, and everyone who ive seen who has it and any of the others on your list says the sq of the AP80 is better. MSEB allows you to customise the sound a ton, great feature. they also finally released the FW to fix the hissing problem with dsd files it use to have. Ive had...

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    My second AP80 that I'm gifting to a friend arrived. Its a slightly nicer device to operate, and the volume wheel is SOLID compared to my kickstarter generation silver one. (which is ok mind you) Really I dont think i ever listen to DSD either, but since I have one brand new, and one antique...

    Don't get the V80. DT6>C10>V80 There is a big big step between each of these.

    I have had the C10 for a couple months and liked it, much better than the TRN V80, but recently got the DT6 and wow, the highs remind me of my Somic V4 which I have a lot of good memories of. Except, the DT6 is just better in every way. An absolute must buy if you listen to classical music in...
