    Is there any plans for next firmware update? Last update was like half year ago and bugs are still there. I know about the MCU problems. Nevertheless as a customer I shouldn't be concerned by that stuff, rather than just receive product that is complete and working. My player fail to boot up, crashes while browsing my library and randomly brings volume control screen while scrolling through albums(even though i wasn't touching the volume knob). That's not what i expected when i was buying it couple months back, but i was patient. Now it seems as we were left with unfinished product and nothing will be done with it.

    I think i got the chinesee version Cayin i5, but i got Firmware 2.2 international installed and now it work better, since it got Baidu instead of dropbox and missed google play store buttom when i unboxed the player i was surprised to see this it had me a whole day to find it out
    If it would have worked for the Songs i drag from Pc to Player and album art show up in artist view itwould be good but then it work for some chinese server which i dont use :)
    yes i think Artist list now is better than artist empty square thumpnail

    hello again i like the sound quality of I5 and for its price there is not so much competition.
    I am glad you told about the Freezing issue because i was testing this yesterday.

    And YES i have Freezing issue this is the problem i Have, When i go into EQ and change music EQ while playing a song in Hibymusic then i5 FREEZE for a minute and pop up "Cayin i5 freeze" choose of wait or close player.
    I click wait and after 1-2 minuts it unfreeze, but if i start playing with EQ again it freeze again HAPPEN ALL THE TIME .

    I dont know if i get freeze with other things than going into EQ settings.

    When yours froze will it freeze from staying iddle playing songs for 15 minuts, or only when you was browsing song while playing songs after 5-15 minuts?
    Freeze issue i have now and the conection problem i have 2 minuts delay by USB mode is what made me consider return it.

    I think Player stay idle play song it wont freeze.
    The problem i have with my Cayin i5 when conected to PC on several pc the same (indicate problem is with player not with Pc) conected to pc USB mode 2 minute delay to show up
    and problem i had in MTP mode that music disapeared from MTP not sure why that happened but it work now again in mtp, however some random times it dont conect by mtp and have to try again.

    I realy apreciate someone to help me test the Freezing on Cayin i5 to see if my freezing on cayin i5 is hardware issue
    i realy should return it , but it look so lovely there on my desk. i dont know if its good to keep it

    Also in Eq settings the Default EQ settings has a lower volume than using Custom EQ setting
    not sure if that is normal, thats why i only use Custom EQ settings

    Freezing only happen in custom EQ settings when flipping the EQ buttons up and down
    but not by selecting Default EQ settings between rock,pop,jazz etc...
    sometimes the Eq customize buttons are unresponsive and then it freeze

    Doing more freeze test now

    Defently Cayin i5 Hibymusic have A Bug with Short Intro songs they ARE Not recognized and
    NOT show up in Cayin i5.

    This happened to me drag whole album from pc to player in both MTP and USB mode it show up in windows folder inside cayin i5 once conected
    but once unplugged cayin i5 and scanned the Song dont show up, Is not a IDtag issue it happen with ALL songs around under 1 minute

    This is the songs that dont show up in Hibymusic because is too short minute playlenght
    It do work on Poweramp but not in hibymusic
    Of all my songs is not so many songs that dont work
    but here there are.

    All have in common is the first song on the Album
    and that song is INTRO with under 1 minute length mp3.

    I recomend you try this try album with short intro song first song
    see if it show up on player

    You have to change search settings. When you click music scan there will be selection between scanning all and specific folder. In the upper right corner in the selection screen you can see settings button. There you will have to disable both skip options.

    Sorry to inform you that we don't have any plan to modify the Artist list as you have suggested. We did consider changing the Artist tab to a listed based and get rid of all the icons.

    But as for bluetooth, can you consider some solutions?
    Because since he is working at the moment, this can not be called his normal job......

    The pause is a know issue with Hiby at i5, we have urged Hiby to rectified that but for some unknown reason, Hiby can't solve the problem, This is related to HiBy app only, the i5 Bluetooth connection can pause with other Music App.

    From what I gathered, i5 can connect to the audio system in your car via Bluetooth, but it can't be reconnected if the i5 or the car audio system rebooted? I am not entirely sure, I need to check with our QA staff next week, I barely remember that we have mentioned in early stage of i5 that the Bluetooth chip (which is fairly outdated by today's standard) is not performing satisfactory on the auto-connect function.

    Thank you very much for your kind support, its amazing that you are really considerate even when your i5 experience is not as positive.

    Indeed I have a hard time to get in pace with all the product discussion threads in HeadFi and elsewhere (I am also responsible for the forums in Hong Kong as that's my home town).

    2017 is a very tough year for us. We had FOUR typhoon attack so far and Typhoon Hato has hit us badly. We have another tropical storm Pakhar last Sunday and that also went up to Red alert, and then we have Tropical storm Mawar arriving this coming Sunday, our R&D has get back on track already but the production will take time to ramp up again mainly because we need to wait for the supply chain to refill our components.

    For those who want to find out how bad the situation was, please check the photo on our Facebook.

    Yes, quite right. Reconnection does not occur. You need to go into the bluetooth settings and manually select the desired device.
    Still often enough was that i5 repeatedly requests a password for the connection.

    Can somebody chime in, am I the only one who's volume wheel on I5 works in the opposite direction since upgrading from 1.18 to any of the later firmwares?
