@JamesFiiO Any idea when your newer batch of M15s will be released to Amazon in the US? There are only rip off folks on Amazon now wanting $1500 for the M15. Can't feed corruption.

The M15 case finally arrived. I bought it from Hifigo and it took about 3 weeks for shipping. This isn't a Dignis by the way, it's FiiO branded (although not found in their official outlets yet).

It's a thin, flexible leather unlike the thick Dignis cases, and covers the M15 fully from top to bottom. It looks neat at first sight, with a good colour combination of black with gold grills. But the finishing is a bit crude at the corners, you can see some of the inner layers peeking out.

Another curiosity is how they chose to protect the volume pot, with a magnetised lid. So everytime you want to adjust the volume you have to pop off the lid. I don't really like that, but at least the volume pot isn't exposed. The leather doesn't get in the way of the headphone and charging ports, but you'll have to remove the case to change SD cards.

For what it's worth, I can finally bring the M15 out and about, and I have something to grip on without accidentally pressing some buttons. So handling becomes much better. The heat issue is reduced because of the heat-dissipating grills at the back. It's not totally cool, but I no longer feel like holding onto a piece of hot coal.

So far it's the only case available, we have to wait for DDHiFi to come out with their version. Until we have more competiton, this will do. It gets a 3.5/5 from me.
You bought it in Indonesia ?

hmm not sure if we are talking about the same issue. Just open aYT video in browser on M15 and see if video and audio stay sync.

It’s not critical but could be an annoyance...
Just finishing checking videos ,no sound sync issues(checked with bluetooth earbuds)

Nice! Thanks for making the effort to check!

Anyone feel that the screen has too much blue tint? M11 was very blue and bright at lowest setting and I was constantly trying different screen overlay apps. Any impresssions?

It's probably fine in daylight. M11 was like a flashlight in bed :dizzy_face:

I got to check this out though. No hiss with your A18t and all the impressions sounding good.

By the way, I can confirm, the sound opens up and balances out with burn in. The treble is not as muffled and the bass is tighter at the 50 hour mark. Used the same tracks as those I did for initial testing. I'll probably let it go on for 2 weeks before taking the M15 off the burner. Sweet.
Yes, theres a change at about 48hrs. But the biggest change is at about 96hrs. Its now analytical, with more (and better) treble response, but still musical/fun. Bass response not as pronounced as initially, since it gets more controlled and tighter. The benefits are quite positive and sound signature becomes a bit different. Not so warm, more detail focused. Basically it's worth the waiting.

I suspect it has something to do with both the coronavirus and travel restrictions.
It had to be in China... &%$&/%#
