    I use the DDHifi DJ44C 4.4 to 3.5mm adaptor with all my IEMs terminate in 4.4mm. Quite pricey but well built and compact

    Not the best, M9 really seems to like a more powerful source than most IEM. My Moondrop Variations sounds better when paired with the UTWS5 or my phone but M9 pulls ahead when I use the W2-131 balance out.

    I finally got the replacement cable in hand, pretty much took a whole month to replace a DOA cable. If I didn't spend my own money to get another cable myself, I would be having a useless paperweight for a month now. Ordering from China didn't have to be like that, I had a DOA DAC replaced...

    I ordered a Variation out of curiosity, I hope it doesn't disappoint coming from the M9 and quite some time with the Z1R too.

    It's blue for the W2-131 vs the older one that is black Tested power draw from L7audiolab was W2 = 734 mW S2 = 638 mW W2-131 = 680 mW

    I love the W2-131 pairing with the M9 on 4.4mm connection. M9 is one of the few IEMs I tried that improves with better amps, worth a try. Battery drain isn't too horrible with the W2-131 on my Xperia 1 III.

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (The new W2-131 Version is Available, Related Info on Post #1)

    I have noticed a small amount of EMI interference when the dongle is directly on the phone, but with a longer cable and having the dongle in a different pocket all together have stopped any noticeable interference. Refer to "power inverse square law" in terms of reducing interference that isn't...

    @FiiO The current fw on my UTWS5 will seemingly randomly reconnect to my phone while it's in the case, will a new firmware fix it or do I need to return it? The case is fully closed and charged. My UTWS3 never had this problem either

    Genuine questions for anyone using the Battery Saver option. The UTWS5 seems to power on and reconnect to my phone even being in the case and charging It seems to happen when the hooks are charged to 80% and finish charging

    Pre ordered the UTWS5 to upgrade my UTWS3 I am using right now. Hope to find a noticeable upgrade with the already good UTWS3 + UERR pairing

    I'm kind of done with headphones.

    I am kinda happy with what I got, my HD800S and IEMs are used a lot still, but the latest and greatest no longer get me that excited. Mostly thanks to the price tags recently!

    I am surprised at how good the Xperia 1 III onboard speakers are! Not sure what is the rotation or battery issue is, it's miles ahead my S10e in terms of responsiveness. Even when running in split screen mode compared to S10e on a single app UK firmware here

    I wonder if there is anywhere to try out Moondrop IEMs in the UK? I haven't heard any EST hybrids that I like yet but the Variation might fit the bill

    Vote the new FiiO LOGO patterns you like!

    Voted 5 out of the available ones, but still lacks personality. 1 to 4 just looks like nth generic gaming inspired font, please don't.

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

    I hope the new WF-1000XM4 (horrible name) will bundle with the Xperia 1 III. As long as it's not some super boomy tuning, I am excited about having a TWS with LDAC support!

    I can confirm the Tanchjim T-APB tips have turned my M9 from nearly unuseable to utterly amazing for me. Zero pressure build up even with the deepest fit. Sounds amazing on my D90/A90 stack, really don't expect an IEM being that demanding from the source.
