My blue replacement pair have been problem free.
I'm experiencing exactly this issue, which is a shame because these sound so good. Black, right connection is flaking out with slight movements.
Is the only solution at this point to just return them and try for a newer batch?
I ordered a new set from fiio on Amazon and sent the other set back for a refund. You could try gently squeezing the outer mmcx connecter, at your own risk, to tighten the joint but it will make it slightly oval. Its worked for me in the past but do you want to mess around with it and risk having to buy a cable out of your own pocket?
The coloured one's look nicer anyway.
I fancy blue too but I think I'll wait until at least Easter. Hopefully, by then there will be plenty of the fault-free batches available & maybe a special holiday promotion in the UK?
There's an "Open Box" FH1 at Advancedmp3players.co.uk for £35. I hope it's not the set I sent back last week because one channel stopped working after one hours use!
Success and blunder two sides of a coin and the coin is FH1 .
I take it this isn't an isolated failure? lol.
Is it safe to say the other colors are part of a newer batch? Is it only black that has faulty connectors?
I have black. Connectors are fine.
I think it's easy to focus on the connection problem but you really need to listen a working set of these to appreciate how good they are for the money ( If you like bass biased headphones)
I absolutely love my second set of these and take my hat off to fiio for what they have achieved.
Consider what the 2 different cables would cost plus the case and tips and then think what you are paying for the earphones. Now I have a fully working set I couldn't rate them any higher if I'd paid £200 for them.
I'd penciled in a set of shure 535'S if the replacements let me down but they didn't so I put what I'd saved towards some B&W PX over ears.
These things are great! Another winner by Fiio. I seriously think these are better than my IE800 going by memory...
Will try them later to make sure!
I get where you are coming from, but even if I got a working set, I would be thinking every time I picked them up, would this be the time they stopped working.
Why didn't/doesn't FiiO introduce an "SE" version with non-removable 2.5 cable with a 3.5 adaptor?
I just use mine and enjoy them. The cables are replaceable anyway. If you had moulded ones they'd likely be going in the bin if a cable became faulty. I think you can get new fiio cables for £10 from their Ali Express store that are shorter with no remote. The earpieces seem rock solid so i have no worries there.
Im waiting to see what the Bluetooth cables are like that are coming out from fiio, they look interesting. If not I quite like the look of the Westone bluetooth cable to try on them. Lots of options.
Who's saying it was the cable at fault? I could have tried the cable from my F9's, but couldn't be bothered to find the fault. I just returned them and now see Advancedmp3players.co.uk have an "Open box" pair going for £35. Couldn't be my old pair, could it?
Buy them again to find out
