    Interesting. Any significant changes to the audio circuitry?

    Thank you for your interest! For the mk2, only the exterior is improved.

    What my ES100 is missing is the ability to turn off the hardware buttons while I work out. But this other stuff seems nice, too.

    Is it still completely made out of plastic?

    oh. GREAT!

    I think we need more pics.

    I'm curious about the buttons finish....are they a little more outside the body and clicky too??

    For the LED, that was needed....in day light i was struggling to see it.

    Anti scratch body is a very good idea plus.

    its nice that you listen to your fans!

    Long life to EARSTUDIO!!

    This looks like a fantastic update. ES100 was already amazing, just needed a few tweaks to take it to the next level. This looks like just the ticket!!

    I have the previous version - love it. Several reviews have reported that equalizer will be updated to parametric type - any word on when that will be available?? I'd buy the MK2 if the parametric eq was a feature.

    Would be nice if there was a small hookable area - lost my ES100s because the clip came off my belt

    Metal would not be good for reception, glass would be heavier.

    Yes. But others (Fiio for example) have implemented these materials well. Though I must admit the new ES100 looks definitely sturdier than the old one and the choice of (still) plastic makes sense, I was hoping for higher quality materials and haptics. It still looks a bit „cheap“ to me. But, well, it’s „only“ design and I still love it as a device.

    For some parts of my signal chain, I really want build quality. But for what the ES100 does, minimal mass is where it’s at. And sure, it would be cool if that featherweight build was accomplished with carbon fiber and titanium. But that stuff is really expensive.

    It’s not a conspicuous consumption device. It’s a device that makes smart compromises in order to make good sound portable—at a good price. I have zero temptation to pay more to get the same audio performance with swankier materials.
     
  15. Hanesu
    So for which part of your audio chain would you want build quality then?

    If you ask me, that question basically is the same for all „portable audio“ devices. No matter whether it’s dongles, daps, portable amps or IEMs. If you really think about it, from a logical standpoint something like the SP1000 or metal built IEMs really do not make much sense. They could also be built from lighter materials while still sounding (almost) the same. Though, nice haptics represent an (maybe emotional) part of our hobby, don’t they? I used the ES100 for two years now and still really it, though I might switch the BTR5 soon. Just because it fascinates me a lot more. And I feel its size and weight is still really ok at around the same price as the ES100.
