    nice, what headphones are u using?

    I experienced a similar over sharpness and sibilance driving my XBA-N3 on the Hiby R6 Pro, especially compared to when driving those with my NW-ZX300 which I typically used on the go.

    As above, I don't use headphones, just IEM's and now just use the Shure SE846's. (One pair wired, other pair wireless with the BTR3)

    As good as the m11 is at the price, I can't see spending my money with any other company at this point. I would like to see a Sony with streaming again as I'm a long time Sony fan and that brings nostalgia into it.

    I'm old enough to remember carrying Sony cassette walkmans and then drooling over their top end discmans and mini disc players.

    But this m11 is just fantastic for the price. And I have bought some of those more expensive daps and while nice, it just isn't worth the extra bucks for a side grade or no grade.

    Ibasso stuff sounds nice, but is kind of clunky. Cayin can be hit or miss with me. AK makes really nice gear but vastly overpriced imo. I like Sonys high end models but not streaming, and I had 2 defective wm1a (bad screens) very rare for Sony.

    But fiio, x3!!! Was great, x5iii was a bit too warm for me but really nice, and m11 has taken things to 11. People rave about thx aaa so the m11 pro is very intriguing, I've thought about buying that little monoprice amp to check it out. But honestly I can't really want for sound with m11. It's got nice power, a nice big 3d ish stage, and impactful detailed bass, glorious mids, and nicely extended treble that sounds natural and correct. And great positioning of instruments and vocals in the stage, with lots of space between them.

    Very similar to the wm1a with my iems that is 1200 dollars. So once I see how the thxaaa affects the sound, I might have to bite on that, providing they don't mess with the sound sig too much and it's under 1000, which with fiio it probably will be less.

    ... a better headphones!
    Sorry, buy another hardware...the M11 has BT power more than enough (incl. volume limit set to 120)! (pre-gain ON, limiter ON, replaygain 89dB - without these options you can buy another part of ears!)
    In addition I can set the volume at my headphones, too. Maybe, your amp of your headphones is bad....buy another hardware.... sorry, that's the point!

    Your beats can LDAC? Really? You are a funny guy! You are talking nonsense! buy another hardware! STOP to buy beats headphones! We are talking here about descent hardware not funny joking kid headphones!
    I think just SBC and normal AAC can the beats! NEVER LDAC!
    In addition. You are using the worst BT codec and we are talking about BT volume +120 and NOT about your hardware?

    So, I've been enjoying the M11 during the day and it sounds wonderful out of the box. Have only been testing FiiO Music with default settings. Balanced. High gain. Also a little Spotify.

    I've been wondering because I was a little worried but now I'm not.

    First off, the WiFi is completely alright. I've downloaded about 10gb of music via Spotify and has been really fast. As fast as my cellphone (flagship Xiaomi / 5gh). Since I'm using both SD slots for my personal HQ library I've selected the internal storage to store Spotify offline files. So, for those complaining, can it be due to you guys downloading straight to SD / slow cards?

    My second concern was the heating / player getting hot. So far I haven't felt the player getting hot? This afternoon I've been playing flacs for two hours. I think my phone is even warmer now as I type (it's not, it's cold). I'm playing this (Balanced output, High gain, FiiO Music) and it's still pretty cold. 24bits / 192kHz / 4840kbps. DAP sitting over a wooden table / this afternoon sitting on my belly. I'm on the latest firmware.

    did u read the rest of my post ?

    then what are some headphones?

    I tried switching to SBC for my beats and it sounded the same even at 120 volume
    I have the Shure 846's and at 120 volume + LDAC,APTX,SBC and....
    it STILL sounded LOW just like the beats, i was told

    RMCE-BT2 is better, and i will be getting those soon. IF it still plays the same..then it must BE my M11

    Yeah it could be a faulty bt chip on your unit.
  12. abitdeef
    Points on your choice of Artist :) Is that HD version from HD tracks?
  13. abitdeef
    I tried bluetooth on my sonys with my phone galaxy 10e, my m11, and my m6 and they all played equally as loud, although surprisingly the m11 sounded the clearest, must have a better bt transmitter. They all sounded good though, was using ldac.

    No volume problems for me.

    Yes it is! RUSH rules! :)

    Your shure 846 CANNOT LDAC, JUST SBC! It's the same worst BT codec! Just the RMCE-BT2 supports the better codecs.
    The problem is not to find @mobile device M11, just in the amp of your BT headset! This is the reason, why you cannot hear a difference between low gain and high gain (via control @M11 device) while listening via BT AND this is the reason of BETTER battery life if you just using BT instead the internal M11 app!

    Pls. Inform you about the different BT codecs, about internal M11 amp and external BT amp (in your headset for example) otherwise you will use / handle your hardware wrong in every case.
