Looks like there is going to be an upgraded version of the AP80 Pro; the AP80 Pro-X. https://www.hidizs.net/p/ap80-pro-x

It seems like the size has changed a tiny bit from 61x56x13.8 to 61x54.5x13.8. It also uses the upgraded ES9219C DAC, which is the same as Shanling's M3X and will now unfold MQA 8x rather than 4x like on the regular AP80 Pro.

Besides that it appears everything is the same from the regular AP80 Pro, same 2.45" Samsung screen, Bluetooth 4.2 etc...

Hidizs assured also a longer battery duration, if I am not wrong. Which whether true in the third AP80 version (special material ones apart) could testify a optimization work on new circuits and implementation.
I like AP80pro sound and its power and dynamics paired with DH80 amp. My best commuting gear. Looking forward to test the new one

i seemed to get about 12hrs off my ap80 but only about 10hrs off my ap80 pro

ap80 claims 15 hour play with 30 day standby

ap80 pro claims 13 hour play with 50 day standby

ap80 pro x claims 13 hour play with 40 day standby

on their site. which is weird.

also i think my ap80 crashed less then my pro, and had a faster more responsive feel. but i cant remember forsure since i havnt used it in over a year

RIP my ApP80. The battery swelled so much it popped the back cover off.

Had to dispose of it before it became a more serious issue.

This is literally what I'm dealing with right now.

It started swelling way back in early 2021 but I just ignored it. Now the battery life has become very bad. Only now did I contact Hidizs to buy a spare battery replacement, that is if they even have any.

Still useable though, I just have to make it shut down after 5 minutes to conserve battery life.

I dont mind the cable placement as long as it sounds better less metallic. I was not familiar with the Lexar SD Cards, they are very premium price but fast it looks like.

the 1TB micro sd cards used to be 400$ CAD but if found one for 160 so i ordered it. a few days later i found one for 130 so i ordered that one and will return the 160 one after i verify the 130 one is working properly

price is back up to 190 cad now

im writing 500gb data to the 1TB and its hardly even warm
