    That's great news re: USB-C and not needing any OTG compatibility. Sorry if I was mistaken a few posts ago. 
     
    On another note, I did the "mixer_paths" on my 6P this morning and it boosted the headphone volume significantly. It took all of five minutes and while I've probably blown the chance to receive an OTA update when it comes out, I'm loving the headphone output now. Not the best I've ever heard SQ-wise, but I have no complaints for a portable solution now. The phone has much more power. I don't know why they make them so quiet out of the box. Anyone else done this "mod?"

    Yeah, those are like the Belkin one I tested, 1m length not the most practical for connecting DACs though!

    will this adapter work?

    I believe adapter like that should work, I would try the Techmatte one though as that is Benson Leung approved.

    it Sounds great, if it works, then we don't need to use that 6ft cable.

    I worry a little that they will stress the port a bit, would really like a right-angled one, but at the moment beggars can't be choosers I guess. As the year wears on and everyone moves to USB C we should start to see short cables suitable for USB DAC pairing uses.

    Just got a 25cm (9.8 inches) USB-C to mini b cable from a company called Deltaco. Works like a charm, had no problems with connection.
     
    They also have USB-C to micro b in the same length. Could be an option for those of you who are looking for a shorter cable :wink:

    Hi folks. Can confirm that the FiiO K1 works on the 6p!! Massive sound improvement for a small device and doesn't blow a hole in the wallet.
    Paired to my JVC FX850s. I used this OTG adapter

    Anybody used the 6P with a quality bluetooth headset (aptx) yet?

    Well, barring a bad Bluetooth connection from the phone, the phone should have no impact on the Bluetooth headphone sound quality. The DAC and amp is in the headphones not the phone.

    I have since read that the 6P doesnt even have the APTX bluetooth codec so ive removed it from my shortlist. Unfortunate as its such a good phone.

    Just got these Techmatte UBC-C to USB micro adapters http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0151RKYBG
    Tested on my Nexus 6P and Oppo HA-2 and it was no-go.  Tested with both a USB micro male to USB micro male cable that came with HA-2, as well a standard USB micro to USB cable.  Changed the USB option to MIDI but audio was still coming out of the speakers. 
    Not sure if I missed something or the adapters just didn't work.  Any idea? 
    TIA
