    [FiiO UTWS5] True Wireless Bluetooth Earhooks as Usual,Coupled with Independent AK4332 DAC

    Well your still only going to be using SBC/AAC, ok it may have improvements but its really about the new BT 5.2 and aptX Adaptive IMO so does your phone have BT 5.2 and if so is that with the upgrade to you? I am skipping it as it does not have the older aptX-HD codec to fall back to for phones...

    [FiiO UTWS5] True Wireless Bluetooth Earhooks as Usual,Coupled with Independent AK4332 DAC

    I tried to find it by that PS5 name but that cannot be the proper name as it is a no go. I have tried for a long time to find one by using "aptX adaptive" as keyword in searches on Ali and elsewhere as I have had at least one set of aptX Adaptive buds (QC3040) for about one year now. EDIT...

    No I think it is out of stock and to try and buy from there using a translator is not to easy and TBH not something I would, do for a site I had not heard of till now.

    What is that aptX-Adaptive BT called and where did you get it? NVM did some page reading and got your link.

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    There is one seller selling them for £59 then a few more £ off via a discount voucher (claims to be in stock and 4 sold, 1 more since in the time it took me to post this) but he has no feedback and his store only opened in late Oct 2021 so a bit risky, I will not link to them for obv reasons.

    If I bought a UTWS5 it would need be for my FH3's which are currently on my FiiO Neckband as my new FH7 would be wasted on Bluetooth IMO. I ordered my BTA30 PRO from a seller on AliExpress and had in 9 days.

    If you are replying to me I am on about the above comment about the FiiO UTWS5's (but for some reason did not see the post after it or I would have quoted it) do not have LDAC or the standalone aptX-HD codec to fall back to so I would be stuck on aptX like with a few of my current SoundPeats...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Man I have albums I downloaded that are 128-192k, remember connections were slower and HDD's were smaller back early 2000's and I was lucky as I had 512k Cable since 2001 not 56k Dial Up and a 60GB HDD where as even 20-30GB was just becoming common on new mid range machines. I have tried to...

    You would be using wired for that as TWS are still not quite there and LDAC is not the holy grail some even say aptX-HD is as good/better sounding. I gave up with the artificial sounding settings on my SoundBlaster ZxR (The older Live 5.1 Series card were better sounding IMO) and just play...

    Ideally if you have good devices and good files you should not need any shaping but we get addicted to it so turning it off sounds lacking till you adjust to it. Obv in real life due to some limitations and variables you will need to EQ somewhat. I must admit a lot of the cheaper buds sound...

    [FiiO BTA30Pro] Create a Comprehensive Home Bluetooth System! FiiO's High Fidelity Bluetooth Transceiver BTA30 Pro Is Officially Released!

    IMO a good start would be Double Press the button to Power Off instead of holding it for X seconds (which makes it enter BT Pairing Mode before it powers off). Also in USB mode let it control media playback like Play/Pause/Skip Tracks and then the headphones should be able to do the same. Why...

    [FiiO BTA30Pro] Create a Comprehensive Home Bluetooth System! FiiO's High Fidelity Bluetooth Transceiver BTA30 Pro Is Officially Released!

    I just received my FH7's (I already have FH3 on my FiiO LC-BT2 Neckband) and on my phone at 24/192 they sound great, same on my Headphone Out on my Creative SoundBlaster ZxR at 24/192k they sound great and in both cases no EQ or any artificial shaping of the sound as I disabled it all...

    I may have a slight issue but too soon to tell and I would indeed like some things changed or added and no doubt others also, thanks for feedback and changelog.

    [FiiO BTA30Pro] Create a Comprehensive Home Bluetooth System! FiiO's High Fidelity Bluetooth Transceiver BTA30 Pro Is Officially Released!

    Yes the PRO does more (inc higher bitrate) via the USB port than the non PRO and I am sure it is in the info the FiiO REP posted or when he was asked the question. https://www.fiio.com/bta30pro_comparisons < Main differences. P.S AFAIK the Creative SoundBlaster X3/4 does control the Windows...

    The are not linked AFAIK (I will test later once earphones are connected), in that moving the BTA30 PRO's Volume dial/knob does not move the Windows Volume slider. So if you are connected via USB yes you can adjust the volume via leaving the BTA30 PRO's Dial/Knob up full and using Windows...
