    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    In my case, it probably was a batch issue. First one charged very quickly and drained quickly. The second one charged at normal speed. But the battery drained when it was switched off within a few days.

    Got my 3rd replacement Gryphon a few days ago. No battery issue for now. It is from a new batch. (-:

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    I bought the Gryphon for its portability and versatility. iDSD is a marvelous unit but it does not have 4.4 mm out. I think the Signature has such an option. I do not see it as a portable unit. Rather transportable. On paper, Gryphon should take 5 to 6 hours the charge with a suitable charger...

    The support team wants me to return the unit for the second time. It should not be losing charge whilst it is being powered down. :cry::cry:

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    Green Mitter case is very pretty with some vintage look. Such a nice device and IE600 is complementing its glory very well. I hope I could solve the battery issue. Simply the best portable device I had for long time provided it solves its power management issue.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    Looks a bad batch? The first unit had serial xxxxxx0387 and the second xxxxxx0361. However, it looks like I am not going to get any solution or help from either the seller or iFi support. On the previous occasion too, the iFi support; while admitting the battery fault, advised me to get the...

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    iFi support is silent on the battery drain issue! The seller who exchanged the first unit for the bad battery is now sending information not related to the issue. They say that unit charges only 70% when charged it's switched on. The issue is not that. When it is switched on after a while, the...

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    I opened up a ticket with iFi for battery drain when switched off. No response yet! :sob: If there is a battery issue in the replacement unit (1st had a bad battery) I must be very unfortunate.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    Oh no! This is the second unit after the first one having battery issues! But there are other few members who reported battery drain after switching it off. @iFi audio can you clarify this? Do I have to open a ticket again? :cry::cry::cry:

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    I wish I could use it more often but I am a busy Physician. I have so many other battery-operated devices but the rate of idle discharge is a bit rapid, I would say. I also agree iFi has to relook at the power management of this wonderful device. I bought a pair of Sennheiser IE600 to pair with...

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    There is a definitive idle current working inside Gryphon when it goes to a SOFT power off! After keeping the replacement unit for 3 days almost 25% of the charged capacity is gone due to idle drain. Is this normal? I guess there is a way to keep it with HARD power off as the normal way of...

    Thank you! I was having those setting on. I upgraded the firmware and did a factory reset. Now it works with UAPP.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    My Gryphon was exchanged after battery issues. Rechecking again. With android USB, it always shows DXD 384 when hi-res audio is played! Qobuz or Tidal MQA! This is when it is used with UAPP as a USB DAC. Native Tidal APP only shows OFS instead of MQA! The first layer of decoding done by the...

    Exceptional in Every Detail: Say Hello to the IE 600

    But the stock has some foam filters. Don't they have anything to do with tuning the sound signature? Perhaps taming the treble a bit?

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    I was asking that because the brand new unit I got a week back charged within 2 hours fully. The declared time to charge fully is 5 to 6 hours with a high-current charger. Specifications say it takes 1800ma for the full charge. My battery may be at fault as it has zero juice when I opened it. It...

    What is the recommended charging current specification? Fast chargers supply higher currents.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    Is it possible to have shorter charging times for Gryphon if the charger has higher current capacity? Does have some current limiting circuits to limit the speed of charging?

    I have opened up the ticket. I feel I have a significant issue sending it across as we are in an economic meltdown here in Sri Lanka. Facing so many logistic and exchange rate issues.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    @Sebastien Chiu and @iFi audio Can you please help me to clarify this issue? Will I have to send it back to Singapore? Last time my Zen stream had issues that cost me shipping charges back and forth. iFi has quality issues I am worried about it now.

    xDSD Gryphon: birth of a ‘head-fi’ legend

    I got my Gryphon a few days back. Charging times are much less than what is mentioned. less than 2 hours? And I found it drained its battery today after listening for a short while. I suspect I kept it on but would run it on playing music to confirm. Defective battery????:cry: When I first...
