    Nice. Does it rub against the BTR5 inside the case? Where can we find a similar clip? Link? Minimal effect (the FiiO leather case is flexible enough). If there is a concern about the BTR5 glass back, you can always glue the clip's back to the exterior of the leather case :) Got the clip...

    listening to Tidal on my s laptop (FiiO driver installed) via USB audio & windows drivers (set as high quality as possible) and FH7 balance. Sounds FANTASTIC

    Mine is 60cm which is ideal for either clipping to my shirt collar or stashed in my shirt pocket. 45cm would be too short for wearing the IEMs cable behind & over my ears. Great with my FH7 and SE846. Balance cable. Made by ted allen <tedallen0220@gmail.com>

    14 hours on ES100 is probabely for lower codec, lower volume & gain and SE iems. Never achieved even closer to that with LDAC and balance iems (two different ES100s).

    The more I listen to the BTR5 (LDAC 660, UAPP, Tidal HiFi) I appreciate its SQ more and more. Now I think that it slightly surpasses the ES100's SQ especially for clearer highs and better stage(?). As far as the battery goes I managed to get more than 6 hours of play (iem: FH7, volume set to...

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    The more I listen to the BTR5 (LDAC 660, UAPP, Tidal HiFi) I appreciate its SQ more and more. Now I think that it slightly surpasses the ES100's SQ especially for clearer highs and better stage(?). Note: anyway the SQ difference between the two (A/B test) is very small. I can say that either is...

    Initial impression BTR5 vs. ES100. Balance FH7 IEMs, source UAPP Tidal HiFi. LDAC 660 from Samsung S10. Hard to pin-point SQ and stage differnces. BTR5 slightly clearer more emphsised on treble especialy with wonen's vocals. No harsh sibilace. Both BTR5 and ES100 sound great. USB audio...

    BTR5 should arrive today. Plan to compare it with my ES100, Mojo and Dragonfly Red - source: Samsung 10; iems: FH7 balance, SE846 se. Will try share my (non-professional) impression.

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Thanks As far as I understand, for USB Audio (via the chord Mojo), only UAPP audio driver is utilized (not the Samsung driver) with full Bit Perfect quality. Is that correct?

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Got Samsung S10 (Exynos, Android 10), playing UAPP Tidal HiFi via Mojo and Bluetooth ES100. On BT, I listen via LDAC set to 660 or 990 (higher quality), supported by ES100. UAPP is set to Bit Perfect Please help me to better understand, regarding BT streaming utilizing UAPP: 1. On the phone...

    LDAC 990 was operating quite good on my ES100 while connected to the V30+. With my new Samsung phone (S10 Exynos) it stutters a lot. Turning off Location (on the phone) somewhat improves, but still with some stuttering. As far as I remember, with the V30+ , every time, I had to re-set the LDAC...

    Pulled the trigger on a BTR5 + case (aliexpress). Now I am trying to answer myself, whether that was required, having a superb es100 for mobility and mojo at home.

    It would appreciate having an in-depth comparison between the BTR5 and the ES100, especially on audio and BT connectivity. Currently I own the ES100. Options: purchase the BTR5 or wait for the Qudelix 5K (expected, end of Q1?).

    Thanks I am aware about the 5k status. I did ask for your opinion/estimation based on the published/known specifications; before continuing with the BTR5.

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    Just from sound quality/performance perspectives (via BT LDAC and USB DAC), how do you consider the coming 5K against the new FiiO BTR5 and the Radsone ES100? I own an ES100, currently considering the BTR5. Mostly streaming Tidal HiFi, over Samsung S10 (android 10), using FiiO FH7 (balance) and...

    The Qudelix-5K thread

    LDAC 990 on at least 3 latest Samsung phones suffers from cutouts. On my S10 I have to turn off location for stutter free streaming with the ES100. IMO, the reason is the phones inability to handle the required 990 bandwidth. Only my (previous) LGV30 could handle clear 990 streaming.

    Radsone EarStudio ES100

    Tidal had started to stream "360 Reality" sound formats. Does the ES100 support that over BT LDAC? Thanks

    USB Audio Player PRO (UAPP): 24- and 32-bit playback, ubiquitous USB audio support for Android

    Thanks for your response. According to this link by Sony, any Headphones should deliver the 360 experience. On the Tidal app, over my Android phone, playing a 360 title, I (think that I) had captured the surround experience; will recheck it later with better IEMs (SE846). Edit: could not...
