    @TheRH I would advise you to buy it now as you can have your AP80 with a lot of perks at a very interesting price. If you buy it from our online shop after the campaign ends, the retail price will be higher and you would also have to buy the perks (like the case) separately, which will be more expensive. Also since our campaign is working really well now, they go fast.

    @Luhar like i said on one of my previous posts, 3,000 units are currently under production, and since our KS campaign is doing great my boss placed 5,000 units more! But since some units are already being manufactured, I think there is a high chance that we might be ready to ship the first dispatch a month earlier than expected! Which means, in late October instead of November (but please seriously, do not tell my boss or he will kill me lol)

    @TheRH You will be charged at the end of the campaign :), That is how KS works.

    any idea roughly how long shipping will take?

    Ok guys. Thank you very much for the advices and thumbs up for making FAQ.

    I've already gone further with structure and development of first post in this thread. Now it is well orginized (thank you HeadPie) and has all necessary links and main info. I've also moved my review to the 3rd post to keep the 1st one only for FAQ. I would be going over new posts at least once per day to add it to the FAQ index. PM me if you think that I've missed something important. Thank you

    @IryxBRO @ExpatinJapan Thank you guys for the super work you are doing!

    Your feedbacks and ideas for the AP80 are welcome, you will help us improve it constantly! :D Let us know what you think about it and do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions as well! :D I will do my best to answer them all! (it would also take some time because I need to double check with the team)

    Thanks! :D

    Anyone has a link or review showing how this stacks up with the Hiby r3?

    The only person I saw with both players right now is the Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews guys. Here it is @ExpatinJapan

    @ExpatinJapan can you do a comparison between the AP80 and the Hiby R3 later? thanks a lot!
  12. ExpatinJapan
    @xuyiguanyinsi sorry I dont have the Hiby R3.
    Quite a different device with other features and at twice/thrice the price of a Hidizs AP80 or Shanling m0.
    Size being similar though.

    No doubt someone else will be able to do all three soon. A couple of reviewers have the Hiby r3 and m0 and will probably get the AP80 review unit.

    *For most people I recommend to think about features, then price/budget.

    @IryxBRO thanks for the shout out about redesigning the OP together


    @kenloveme yes I will keep emailing any feedback on the AP80 to your colleague (nothing too major folks, no bugs so far- just tweaks).
    I will message them to you also.


    RE: Hidizs AP80 vs Shanling M0. Hopefully early next week unless the maestro @twister6 gets his done first :wink: then it will be well covered anyway.

    Either way the campaign has taken off so a vs/comparison at this piong may be moot.

    Later,...after the weekend

    Something like this could have been useful...
    ...but sounds like the AP80 doesn't broadcast FM over BT.

    Hi.I was a bit of late bird, but a backer
    #1078 now.
    Although I loved portability of music, my troops have grown too big as a result of too much of SQ comparison.
    I hope this new toy brings me back
    the eary days of exiting portability!!

    For what’s its worth I thought the M0 sounded a bit more dynamic than R3 and a better treble response- well stronger. I personally preferred the sound of the M0. I felt the R3 sounded great also and was smoother and a touch warmer and a touch more refined.

    I never tested the balanced out of the R3 either. I feel a lot of the sonic signature is down to the cans iems you are using, and your preferred sound signature. For instance I thought the Sony a45 sounded better with my sound magic ie 80 than the M0, but the M0 sounded better with my ak t8ie mkii.

    Anyways if AP 80 has a similar sound to M0 or better, lots of people are going to love the sound which is close to neutral but with some energy in the bass and treble regions for a more fun- musical- dynamic sound and not analytical with smooth evenly spaced mids and a nice sound stage. And

    Can’t wait to try AP 80! I do love M0 but this will be easier and more convenient to operate ( like R3 ) but still very compact.
