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

    Right click on the icon / shortcut / app and pick "Run as Administrator" from the context menu. Yes, it makes no (normal) sense. But security in Win10 is not as straight forward as you would expect it to be. BTW, you really should run you daily business on a more restricted user account...just...

    Wow, I have not heard the name Nakamichi in some thirty odd years. It used to be a very solid company making tape decks, pre-amps and power amps. I also think the only company that got two drivers to properly work in a headphone is 1More. Cheers.

    I don't get the MQA hype at all, but maybe only my ears don't get it. I don't care about another bit or not as long as my music sounds good and I can enjoy it. Nothing else matters, really. BTW, freedom of speech does not apply here at all. Freedom of speech protects you from being harassed /...

    Low end. Cheap. Generic. Otherwise bang for buck cable thread!

    @Dsnuts OK, but $149 is not "low end", "cheap", "generic", "Otherwise bang for the buck" or am I missing something? I am just sayin'... Cheers

    You could go through this thread: TWS - are we there yet Just my 2 cents... I tested quite a few and for the most part the microphone performance is rubbish. You might look into things like the FiiO UTWS1 or BTR5 or Shanling UP4 (love mine) and attach your favourite IEM / headphone. Beats the...

    KEF Porsche Design SPACE ONE Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Headphones on Newegg Shell Shocker. Down from $380 (really?) to $99. I know nothing about these HP, but if the price difference they claim is for real, then I would call it a good deal. Link...

    Quite frankly, I couldn't care less. If there are reviews here on head-fi, I would give it more credit though... I got my unit prior to it ever got to Drop. Some people do not like ZReviews on YouTube, but so far his impressions have worked well for me. I bought my unit through Amazon, which...

    Regarding ES100: I had one of those for about a week or so. Maybe I had a faulty unit - then again, all BT Rx start crackling a little bit if the BT signal gets weak or gets lost. Really smart devices just go mute. My ES100 however did neither. Thankfully I was wearing headphones and not IEM...

    The iBasso DX50 Thread - Latest firmware: 1.9.5 - June 30, 2016

    I think he asked for a TX. The btune is a RX. MPOW makes both types. Even a version you can switch from RX to TX. BT 4.2. They work well enough.... Cheers.

    You could also entertain the idea to use any headphone you (she) like(s) and get a MPOW bluetooth adapter. I am using these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075JBLGLB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and for $14 a pop they are brilliant. Cheers.

    Rockbox Xduoo X3

    Oh goodie, I purchased mine in fall 2016 and I have no idea what capacity the internal battery has. See below. I never installed RB on them either. User gerund is interested in one of the two I own and I really have no interest to screw him just in case those are Gen 1 v3 type. I highly doubt it...

    Rockbox Xduoo X3

    The X3 gen 1 and the X3 gen 2 have a very different button layout and different screen. Below is the X3 gen 2 I was unaware of that X3+ -- no clue how this unit relates to the other two.

    I should hate you for causing my wallet to turn into a sink hole...I bought them. Like them. I have a large head and they are very comfy indeed. Good sound. Open and closed. As if I had a need for another set. I will no longer read your posts. Yeah, right.... Cheers

    Philips Fidelio L2

    Your question suggests you don't own this HP.   If that is the case, how did you reach the conclusion that the ear pads are not durable?   Rubbish.   Cheers.

    @ AkashS04: Yeah, you are in the wrong forum.   Also, PowerAmp is an Android music play app - not sure how this squares with your iPod....   Cheers.

    Using it on a 200 gig Sandisk without any trouble at all.   The trick is to have the card formatted in FAT32. Rockbox cannot read reliably any other format.   Cheers

    I got mine from Massdrop as well - the same drop you got yours I reckon, The time frame fits.   I am using it every workday for 8-10 hours and have no issues at all.   It's working just as good as on day one.   Cheers

    Creative Sound blaster E5 - Headphone amp + USB DAC with OTG + Toslink + aptX + recording + more.

    I just searched "250" and got two pages of results. Plenty of answers with "drives my DT880 and DT1770 250 ohm really good". I also searched for "300". And sure enough some Sennheiser users don't have an issue with that either.   So there you go....   Cheers.
