    Shanling UP4 & UP2 - Bluetooth 5.0 DAC/AMP with ES9218P, balanced output, supporting LDAC, HWA LHDC, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC.

    Has anyone figured out how to update the Shanling UP4 to v1.2.3 to use with the mobile App? I tried following the instructions, but my UP4 doesn't seem to behave the way the instructions are saying.

    Shanling UP4 & UP2 - Bluetooth 5.0 DAC/AMP with ES9218P, balanced output, supporting LDAC, HWA LHDC, aptX HD, aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC.

    Will you be releasing IOS app for the UP4? Also, I saw the Android app Equalizer only has 5 bands (63, 250, 1k, 4k, 16kHz). Could you expand it to have more bands, or even parametric eq? Thanks!

    I'm using mostly IEM's for the UP4, and it get's a bit too loud. An option to disable/enable the voice in the APP would be a great idea. Also. the pop. God. I was enjoying the UP4 so much and then they happened, and it just ruined all the joy. Couldn't listen for the rest of the day because my...

    I have UP4. Oh my goodness, it almost broke my ears and my iem. It makes a huge pop noise sometimes. Happens usually when i power on the device with the earphones plugged in 2.5mm and first click play. Also, the voice that says “power on” “your device is connected” etc. it is too loud. Just...

    ThieAudio Voyager 14

    The fit is really comfortable. Hence, with all tips I've tried, the isolation has been great. The shell is still half solid resin so that also helps.

    ThieAudio Voyager 14

    $1000 is a real steal for it! Just the components alone would have been worth it. But it sounds great too so worth it in all sense!

    Tansio Mirai Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the description! U12t definitely seems a little more balanced of a tuning. But good to hear that the zodiac can keep up with the u12t. Does it technicalities (imagin, details, resolution, etc) match the u12t with the custom cable? Was also thinking about the u12t for its technical...

    Toranku's Thoughts and Reviews (and target EQ filters!)

    Would you say S8Z’s resolution is up to TOTL standards? thought the S8F was a little bloated too, so this might be a good one to take a look at
