    Unfortunately, users cannot access the developer options on the SR15. I did read online that your earphones do have a companion app that you can change the volume on the headphones themselves for devices that do not have volume control. You should be able to connect to both the SR15 and the smartphone app via Bluetooth, play back via the SR15 and control the volume from the app on your smartphone.

    @domho7 Sorry to hear about the issues you are having. When you connect to the SR15, does the "External USB" icon light up in the quick settings when you swipe down from the top? If so, when you press the External USB icon, do you see "USB Audio" appear below the icon?

    It does light up but no USB audio appears. I don't have this problem with chord dac thou. Strange.

    Once the External USB icon lights up, you need to press it to enable USB Audio out.

    yeah, im a little concerned with the heating, but im aware of it. lots of people commented here that it gets warm within the first few days.
    since its right now -18*C in my city, that warming will be very welcome lol. also since its so cold now i doubt it may even warm up that much.

    Yep bit of a cold snap right now it’s -8.8*C right now here and is supposed to be -18*C tomorrow. And then of course with the wind chill factor added in, oh the beauty of living up north.

    @JeremyLaurenson not yet, but I did bring this topic up again at our US team meeting yesterday and so did our head of US support. We both stressed that we needed answers ASAP. We requested detailed information on how playlists are now supposed to work under firmware since 1.10 and detailed instructions on how to correctly create external playlists. Hoping to have more information to share this week. I apologize this is still outstanding.

    Hi Jason yes I did press it but it just won't connect.
    I was at my local shop Av One the sales rep was trying out an Arcam irdac we both tried more than several mins there but to no avail. I tested with Audiolab mdac and denafrips Ares all can't connect.
    But strangely with chord dac it can connect easily.

    Hi Jason, could you please inform your developers that there is an issue with the back icon? I have to click on it many times before it reacts. Apparently, I am not the only facing this issue. I assume it is a software issue
    Thanks

    Hi,
    I am pretty thrilled what you think of that combo! From my point of view, I hope you will be pleased with it :wink:

    Gotta' agree. I've had mine a couple of days and sound improved with a few hours of charging and loading music. Initially, I thought it sounded thin and contemplated returning it. It now sounds fuller, more rounded and natural. Who'd a' thunk?

    I got senn 600 and I like the 660 better especially balanced. The 600 really don’t shine without a strong amp, the 660 are easier to drive and more transparent sounding to me.

    I’m sure with the SR15 they will sound tits!

    I was just posting in another thread about a dap opening up after 80 hours and sounding better.

    Wether physical or mental I believe in the burn in. Burn baby burn! And the SR15 I’ve heard after 200 hours sounds so good the listener is reduced to a drooling blubbering blob :) It literally blows their mind.
