    Portable DAP with good battery life

    I'm looking to upgrade my Hiby R3 to something more fully-featured with a larger user interface. The main issue I have with portable DAPs is that most seem to have poor standby battery and/or poor standby batter life.

    New: EarStudio HE100 High-Resolution Earphones

    I love my ES100, so much that I bought a second one (one for work, one for home). Definitely excited to try the earphones. I expect they'll be every bit as good as the ES100.

    FiiO event-Take an M5 with you on holiday!

    I haven't purchased yet because the Watch Strap is key for me. The Aliexpress store says only the first 200 buyers get a watch strap. Will all buyers be getting a watch strap? Are spare watch straps available for purchase anywhere else? Thanks!

    Long time lurker on these forums, but after seeing this list I couldn't help but want to chime in. This is a great list of recommendations (particularly for the inclusion of Comsat Angels who are too often overlooked), and I have a few additional suggestions: Jeopardy - The Sound (see in...
