    I did saved some tracks from there even if it's not my primary music genre :o2smile: actually I think it would be nice when more people here would have a playlist link with fav songs somewhere in the profile. People who value good sound quality might also have a good taste in music :D

    I have a volume imbalance between the buds on the Bomaker SiFi for a 2nd time.. the left bud is louder than the right one I had it already yesterday and a reset has helped. But now I have already reset 3x without a change.. And I had it with every TWS I ever had at some point. With Realtek...

    I've have said that "SBC" Headphones would work better on custom roms which do have SBC Dual Channel / SBC HD since it doubles the bandwidth. So SBC HD gets comparable to aptX and also beats AAC. the MPOWs have aptX so nothing to gain or lose with the Smartphone Firmware in this case

    I bought these https://mobilephonegift.com/product/mpg-bqc35-anc-tws-earbuds-active-noise-cancelling/ on 11.11 (no special deal, just the frustration that there was no exiting TWS on Ali ^^) Didn't got an shipping email yet... New chipset which is not Qualcomm or realtek and claims aptX support...

    The only possible difference are the encoders. So apple has the best AAC encoder, but Android's solution might be 2nd place still. And "possibly" better encoders comparing very old and new Android devices. Apart from that, as long the reception is good, there is no other variable which could...

    speaking of conspiracy theory, there might be more truth there than most people think. OPUS is the best lossy audio codec out there. 100% royalty free. there was simply no reason for the Bluetooth SIG to not enforce it with bluetooth 5.0 spec but it would make AAC, aptX, aptX HD ... useless...

    yeah i would not advice to buy the KZ T1 just try the B530. even with AAC they are good. and could be improved further with the right phone / software and SBC HD | Dual Channel "should" be in android 10, but i have not tried it myself yet. on custom roms its already working on android 8 & 9...

    I have used the following TWS: QCY T2C, Tiso i4/i5, KZ T1, MPOW T5 and Tranya B530. KZ T1 had the best fit, and possibly because of the ear tips since I have used the small T1 ear tips on the MPOW T5 which improved the fit a lot. The stock T5 tips made them stick out to much. The KZ T1 ear tips...

    just received my TRANYA B530. out of the box compared with MPOW T5 (from memory, will test it side by side today) using SBC "HD" (noticeable better than AAC) - more balanced, nothing feels recessed like on T5 a bit - plays (deep) bass without overpowering like T - overall volume is right. Used...

    99% sure its only the case. couldn't test side by side since my sister lost the i4 and i bought the i5 directly after it. but my sister and me both agreed they sounded the same. But I wouldn't buy them again. SQ is just good enough for FM Radio xD

    thanks. they are even on amazon germany :D sadly no aptX . i guess i have to make my hands "dirty" to force SBC "HD" on LineageOS (right now, SBC HD disappears when there is AAC or better). https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software-hacking/improve-bluetooth-audio-quality-t3832615

    I just "sold" my Mpow T5 to my sister (her Tiso i5 "lost" max volume. on another pair of i5 from my mother, the left bud lost some volume too. Tiso send new left bud which "fixed" the issue) The point is, I need new headphones which are at least as good as the MPOW T5. And the TRN T200 looked...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    sorry for late reply. I've bought the MPOW M5/T5 on amazon for 50€ right after. MPOW M5/T5 vs KZ T1 -MPOW is better in everything except the fit. M5 is really no problem for 1-2h, but after many hours like with most headphones, it starts to hurt. The KZ T1 are still more comfortable after many...

    this is normal battery life for the old bluetooth tech. for longer battery life you have to wait until we get the new bluetooth 5.0 qualcomm chips. they are up to 65% more efficient. i also wait for this ...

    in this case, its not the same. the zip contains the missing aptx libs. https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-3/themes/mod-aptx-codec-t3521228 take a look here which SoCs had aptx working after adding the missing libs SD615 SD410 Exynos 4412 Nvidia Tegra K1 ...

    but the kirin 960 had no aptx, LDAC, or AAC codec support before oreo. the codecs are pure software. your hardware does not have to "support" it. its more of a false configuration on the OEM side like for example like the camera2 api which is disabled on many xiaomi dives although its supported...

    well, the Honor 9 from my sister (kirin 960) does have all the codecs. even with stock OS. but its running pure android (project Treble ) and its does have all the codecs also build in. and btw, when you have the A2 lite, you have a possibility to flash a better custom ROM on your device...

    yeah since android 8, you have AAC, aptx, aptx HD, LDAC bluetooth codecs included in every phone. google has made a deal that its licence free now on android. only the "receiver" device has to pay licence fee for the codecs. and who knows, maybe the TRN BT20 has AAC. we have to wait for the...

    no aptx. i asked many aliexpress sellers. its a realtek chip, not a qualcomm one. so no aptx for sure. aac dont know. but maybe if you have some know how of android modding, you could get SBC bitrate mode working SBC specifications allow higher bitrate than currently used by...

    yes its true, the best chip can sound bad if implemented badly. the nice thing about the QCC5100 series is the much improved battery life(we are talking about up to 65% more efficient). so instead the ~5h we get from the typical bluetooth headset, we could get ~10h battery life also aptx HD is...
