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

    There is one seller selling them for £59 then a few more £ off via a discount voucher (claims to be in stock and 4 sold, 1 more since in the time it took me to post this) but he has no feedback and his store only opened in late Oct 2021 so a bit risky, I will not link to them for obv reasons.

    If I bought a UTWS5 it would need be for my FH3's which are currently on my FiiO Neckband as my new FH7 would be wasted on Bluetooth IMO. I ordered my BTA30 PRO from a seller on AliExpress and had in 9 days.

    If you are replying to me I am on about the above comment about the FiiO UTWS5's (but for some reason did not see the post after it or I would have quoted it) do not have LDAC or the standalone aptX-HD codec to fall back to so I would be stuck on aptX like with a few of my current SoundPeats...

    Man I have albums I downloaded that are 128-192k, remember connections were slower and HDD's were smaller back early 2000's and I was lucky as I had 512k Cable since 2001 not 56k Dial Up and a 60GB HDD where as even 20-30GB was just becoming common on new mid range machines. I have tried to...

    You would be using wired for that as TWS are still not quite there and LDAC is not the holy grail some even say aptX-HD is as good/better sounding. I gave up with the artificial sounding settings on my SoundBlaster ZxR (The older Live 5.1 Series card were better sounding IMO) and just play...

    Ideally if you have good devices and good files you should not need any shaping but we get addicted to it so turning it off sounds lacking till you adjust to it. Obv in real life due to some limitations and variables you will need to EQ somewhat. I must admit a lot of the cheaper buds sound...

    [FiiO BTA30Pro] Create a Comprehensive Home Bluetooth System! FiiO's High Fidelity Bluetooth Transceiver BTA30 Pro Is Officially Released!

    IMO a good start would be Double Press the button to Power Off instead of holding it for X seconds (which makes it enter BT Pairing Mode before it powers off). Also in USB mode let it control media playback like Play/Pause/Skip Tracks and then the headphones should be able to do the same. Why...

    I just received my FH7's (I already have FH3 on my FiiO LC-BT2 Neckband) and on my phone at 24/192 they sound great, same on my Headphone Out on my Creative SoundBlaster ZxR at 24/192k they sound great and in both cases no EQ or any artificial shaping of the sound as I disabled it all...

    I may have a slight issue but too soon to tell and I would indeed like some things changed or added and no doubt others also, thanks for feedback and changelog.

    Yes the PRO does more (inc higher bitrate) via the USB port than the non PRO and I am sure it is in the info the FiiO REP posted or when he was asked the question. https://www.fiio.com/bta30pro_comparisons < Main differences. P.S AFAIK the Creative SoundBlaster X3/4 does control the Windows...

    The are not linked AFAIK (I will test later once earphones are connected), in that moving the BTA30 PRO's Volume dial/knob does not move the Windows Volume slider. So if you are connected via USB yes you can adjust the volume via leaving the BTA30 PRO's Dial/Knob up full and using Windows...

    I corrected my error, that button Switches Codecs not Inputs sorry. I am going to plug in my Avantree DG60 (buggy POS but the 2nd Revision they sent me) later, it was the only one to do aptX-HD at the time. I cannot remember 100% if it lets you Play/Pause/Skip tracks as it is USB so seen as a...

    I thought it was maybe the cold as it came all the way from China and I opened it up as soon as I got it today and it felt cold to the touch (it was factory sealed). Got it off by leaving a piece of kitchen towel soaked in some Isopropyl Alcohol (99%) on the top for 2mins then using a pencil...

    [FiiO BTA30Pro] Create a Comprehensive Home Bluetooth System! FiiO's High Fidelity Bluetooth Transceiver BTA30 Pro Is Officially Released!

    BTA 30 PRO arrived, set up was easy to PC via USB and to Phone to get set up in the Fiio Connect App (no Firmware updates yet). Via USB it is seen as a hardware sound device (like a soundcard) so not sure why I cannot properly Play/Pause/Skip tracks via my Fiio LC-BT2's, when you press pause it...

    ^^ They already have paid for it so could use it as the cost per device is small after the big upfront payment for most Codecs, again the REP stated a while back it was due to lack of space but next gen will have more.

    Seem to remember there was not enough space on the chip to have all the codecs so they left it out for the TX but it does support it for RX. For me as a Windows (which does support it now)/Android user I have no real love/need for AAC but I think it should be there. I caved in and ordered the...

    If it is just about sound quality and not good Passive NC then have you tried SpinFits?

    I have them all and have bruised ears with the standard and softer standard (black and white), there is no way to tell how they will sound until they are on your buds and in your ears and that could vary with different buds and different ears.

    This late in the day why did you not update it to BT 5.2 and add aptX Adaptive?

    Battery life Depending on which codec is active, the EAH-AZ60s run for between 7.5 hours (AAC and ANC off) or 4.5 hours (LDAC and ANC on). The charging case extends playback to a maximum of 25 hours when AAC is used and noise cancellation is disabled. Thanks to the fast charging option, 15...

    I posted it earlier and I was not offered a FW update for H1 Premiums and I doubt it will fix the one side being muddy and lower volume (KickStarter funded unusable after 7-10 days from new).
