    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    I'm not sure where you are, but in the US I have been able to get some parts from AudioTechnica USA. I haven't ordered anything from them in the last 3 years, but I assume this opportunity still exists. Otherwise watch eBay for a broken set (but not broken in the part you need).

    iBasso DX150. Dual dacs and interchangeable AMPs. **NEW Firmware that supports AMP9! ** New FIRMWARE 1.05 Dec 30.

    Wow, I'm behind on the news. Thanks for the initial impressions! Here's to hoping for a worthy successor to the DX100 and now DX80.

    IMO the DX80 works well on all recent/current firmwares.

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 and ATH-ESW9A Thread

    Still using my ESW-9 (and ESW9LTD) on a regular basis. Recabling the ESW-9 really brought it up a notch...not technically the best headphone I own, but I really enjoy the non-fatiguing sound and I'm always coming back to it.

    I had this problem as well. This is a behavior seen in an early batch of DX80's. Work with iBasso to get the battery replaced and you should be good to go again.

    The current stock firmware works well and sounds fantastic IMO.

    To my ears, the 1.52 was also very good but 1.60 holds an edge on clarity and sounds more dynamic than the prior firmware. It is also nicely balanced, with the (solid) bottom end, full midrange and slightly recessed upper frequencies each in their own space. Go ahead and try the firmwares you...

    Agreed. I've used Lurker's prior firmwares and they were great, but currently I'm on stock 1.6.0 and it sounds fantastic. Definitely the best among all the prior stock firmware.

    They are both great units. While I slightly prefer the DX80, IMO if you can get one cheaper than the other that would be a primary factor.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    Once available, I wonder if the Ibasso site will allow you to select either amp as your stock DX200 purchase configuration? One vote here for that option.

      If anyone ever had any doubt that iBasso is dedicated to customer service...   While I am certain they have no official policy to this effect, when my DX80 was lost in transit from U.S. to China, iBasso went out of their way to remedy the issue and reduce the sting of losing the unit.  This...

    I dont believe there's any insurance with First Class mail. Right now i'm particularly frustrated over this as the DX80 fit the bill as a portable, nice sounding, and functional player. I'm going to wait two more weeks and then consider what to do to replace it.

    Fellow DX80 owners...I sent my DX80 from U.S. to Ibasso-China for repairs via U.S. First Class Mail. After 6 weeks it is still a no show at their offices. I fear my unit is lost...has anyone had shipping take longer to get to Ibasso?

    iBasso DX80 Bug Thread - Post Any Firmware Bugs/Issues Here

    I would get your battery replaced.  I am starting to get a significant amount of battery discharge even when the player is off.  Ultimately I expect ibasso will work with you to get the issue remedied.

    DX200=Affordable High End Audio. Dual ES9028Pro dacs. AMP1, AMP3, AMP5, AMP7 & AMP8 ***Firmware support now up for AMP9***

    From my experience, the DX90 and DX80 sound good with a 650, but they are not driving that headphone to its fullest potential.  The DX100 is a little better, but also short of what I've heard a 650 sound like through a good amp.  I can't speak for the DX200 as I don't have one.

    Flashlight-Fi (LED & Conventional)

    That's a great light, mine's an XP-G and I love it.   I just received a XP-L HI Domeless D25c Ti and it's also a great light.  I'm experimenting with 16340 rechargeables which really kick up the output.  I'm curious to see what the runtimes will be with that battery....

    Flashlight-Fi (LED & Conventional)

      Illuminationgear gets custom versions of Eagtac lights all the time.  That was one of them.     I'm still loving that light, though I've considered replacing it with a D25LC2 tactical or a DX30LC2.  However those possible replacements don't have a reversible clip to use the light as a...

      I have had this same issue in my slot 2.  After very few engage/disengage usage cycles, it seems to me that the "spring" has failed.  I only use slot 2 for FW upgrades and now I make sure to never insert the card 100% or it may stay in permanently.  I plan on getting this fixed if I ever send...

      Just contact service@ibasso.com and let them know you need a battery.  Instructions should follow.

    While imperfect FW is a PITA for all of us, I can say from my experience that I have yet to see a company diligently "stick to it" to the level that ibasso has. They have also interacted with the users and considered many suggestions. I own the DX100, 90 and 80. Was there some pain getting them...

    Congrats, I agree the DX100 is a winner.  Still my favorite sounding DAP.
