    The company released the grey (which should have been the stock) case immediately just months after the DAP release. My experience with the first (brown) case was terrible. They're slippery and looks and feels even cheaper than its already cheap price. Imagine having the pretty DAP getting dented because of that case. I've seen some other reports echoing my sentiments as well. But for the grey one, it got a lot of praise. You might wanna think twice if you're planning to get that brown case.

    Thanks, I might get the grey case first then Brown as alternative
    i can use the brown inside in bed when listening and the grey outside, i like both.

    The brown is horrible.Too thick and the player will slip out. The grey fits snugly, but also the red stitching on it is done poorly.

    That case was also another evidence that Cayin does not value its customers. Firstly, they obviously never tested the brown case
    before relasing it and after it has been proven being a failure they just silently released the grey. Without any discount whatsoever for people
    who wasted their money already on the brown.

    So far, the Bluetooth performance on the i5 is not very good. For whatever reason, the pause/stop button does NOT WORK with any Bluetooth capable headphone I have used and in several cases the next and or back button doesn't work. Please keep in mind I am using 2.3 Beta, but I had the same issues with 2.2. Anyone's experience any different or the same?
    To answer your question, test them before you buy them.

    after getting angry and pressing all the buttons and basically manhandling it started working. but it get very warm is this normal?
  8. pr0b3r
    That commencing thing fooled me too. I waited for a long time and felt like cheated when all I had to do was press that "commencing" button. And yes, it gets warm. I often drain the battery unintentionally because it was left playing even if I leave it on pause. I just turn if off whenever not in use.

    Can i ask you guys if it is normal for the unit to crash two or three times when it has just started up or been idle for a while? Because this is what is happening to me.

    Just noticed that this may be due to the 2.2 firmware. Do i need to roll back to 2.o firmware before installing the 2.3 beta or not?
  11. JaeYoon
    From what I read much more stable on 2.0 or 2.3 beta.
    If you upgrade to 2.3 beta it's actually 2.0.
    As Cayin cannot downgrade. Andy just rerolled 2.0 into 2.3 beta for stability.
