    "The problem for me with 9038S is that you just can´t wear it easily in your pocket connected to the phone."

    Someone made this allready in the E1DA Discord and thats a super short connection and the velcro tape backpack of the 9038s inspired by my Hiby R3

    Thats a insanly big amount of Usb C cables! cool link

    Thank you so muchh for your time and effort. Really appreciate this. I also always concern in bass department, I like well textured, fast decay with fullness bass, have a perfect body of kicks, and gone and right timing, not too dry but not too wet and over rumbles. Im more picky about low end than highs. So you say the r5 is win on soundstage depth while e1da is overall tighter and more neutral towards analytical so perceive a tighter definition. I guess i prefer the e1da more as I dont have many cold sounding IEM and how about layering, like the space and air betweet instruments? I prefer dap/dac character that can extend that.

    Thank you so much

    Hi guys, I searched this thread for dragonfly comparisons. Can anyone confirm that the E1DA outperforms the dragonfly series?

    Guys with the 9038s on iOS, do you sometimes get max volume blasts while using it? This would be unacceptable to me. Is this a firmware issue that could be fixed?

    This one is great, I guess you don't have a link for it, right :D

    I have direct comparsion to DX150 with AMP6 and E1DA 9038S outperform Ibasso imo. E1da has better deffinition of instruments and is smoother, but sadly lacks some warmth that I like in sound.

    Sometimes I hear internal life of my phone. Also can be too loud for some iems. Haven't any kind of issues more.

    Overall very nice.

    I thought some phones won't work with a single C to C cable and they need a C to micro & micro back to C adapter(s) to work correctly?
    Also, I remember reading that some phones have issues with power and you need a powerbank/battery.
    Some of the details are confusing and scanning through discord trying to piece the info together is challenging.
    But I like the cable you linked.

    For 9038S Gen2, most of the phone work since the it has soft start. You can ask in the discord regarding what phone you're using, I'm sure someone will reply.

    Yeah it's the only short right cable type-c to type-c I've seen. Kudos to who have share it in discord. I can't remember who. He/she even share a pic where he/she use with a phone.

    You mean Powerdac v2?
    I guess you can watch how the powerbar gets lower per minute or faster :wink:

    Still 9038s has so much output power and really best mobile combo for me.. yeah until 9038d for many more.

    I'm tired of draining my phones battery so ordered one of these, hopefully the 9038S will work with it:

  15. G_T_J
    No, I'm not interested in the Powerdac. 9038d all the way for a solution as portable as possible.
    Since the D variant is not available yet, I'm wondering how fast the 9038s drains R3's battery.
    I'm asking as I used to have the R3.
