    Of course range will vary by device, however in our testing we found that 10 meters line-of-sight was a conservative estimate. The issues with the AK players are well known, but the fact that you are experiencing difficulty with your Samsung is a little bizarre. I will have to do more research.

    I would be happy to discuss this with your further over PM or email to see if we can come up with a solution.

    Never mind, this guy bad mouths every product he discusses both here and on reddit. Not worth it :p

    There seem to have been quite a few people with problems with the BTS.

    I am only having issues with DSD or occasionally with 24/192 files via my AK120mkII. Lower res stuff seems to function fine without any challenges at reasonable distances.

    BTS expensive?

    Break the price down

    Blue tooth dongle, with the approx same level of tech 50 - 70$
    Two pin, 4 strand braided cable 35 - 50$.


    Price seems reasonable to me

    Kris, not the point :p Use enough bluetooth devices and you'll realize bluetooth has extreme limitations with audio, bandwidth and connectivity. It has improved over time, but it's still a technology of convenience, much like the mp3.  You're not going to solve all its problems in a $100 device.  I expected poor performance when I got mine, due to it using bluetooth.  What I got exceeded my expectations dramatically. I can completely walk away from my iPhone 6 and have no issues.  The problem isn't with the device, it's with people expecting more than the technology can offer.

    I hear you. I'd keep away from Bluetooth for those reasons. I don't have a need for the undeniable convenience. SQ all the way for me. :)
    It did sound as if Dreyka is having issues that could be considered unacceptable though.

    He asked about low latency aptx before buying it.  He knew it didn't have it.  It's one of those features that companies brag about if they have it and it's definitely not mentioned in the product description.  Considering what you get, I don't consider $100 anywhere near expensive.  As far as range goes, I see that more as a host device problem, as I have no issue with mine.  The rubber charging port cover is bad, so I'll give him that.  There's nothing I can do to keep it closed, short of taping it shut.

    Make sure the plastic/hinge is placed right. I ran into the same issue, as I didn't allow for the hinge to slide into its appropriate place before attempting to shut the cap.

    Are you using acrylic of silicone?  My ER4s silicone molds are very tight deep fits requires spitting on them and stretching my ear funny to push them in.  get that 60 feet underwater feeling from them.  Pulling them out also is a bit of a tug of war, always worried I am damaging my ears doing it.  Can't stand hearing every single brush of the earphone wire against a shirt or movement of the jaw and even breathing a bit. I think perhaps a less deep acrylic with a slightly less tight fit would probably be ok assuming you don't hear jaw movements and cord microphonics. In any case I would probably order mine next time I ever make it to Santa Barbara so I can stop in and try them out.

    Consider this for helping to abate the noise transmited by wire/cable movement.   (The piina/ear will help to absorb those vibrations)

    Guess I am the lucky few to actually got my hands on the PR. I reckon people feels 3 drivers in an IEM is too little.

    I am using acrylic (the K10 is not available in silicone btw). my experience with them is nothing like what you've described. There's no spitting, stretching, tugging or worrying about damaging my ear. That sounds crazy man, no wonder you're paranoid. Everyone's ears are different... maybe I have more earwax for natural lubrication or something, but I'd be surprised if others on this forum have to spit on theirs! Can anyone else comment on this? Do any of you guys have to spit on your acrylics? I don't wanna steer this guy wrong.

    haha, actually i use those.  they work great and have considerably cut down on the cable noise and also the discomfort of the heavy Y block that always just felt wrong.  I use the ER4s over the ear with westone pliable cable.  Still the biggest problem for me is the in ear comfort and the relative efficiency.  Just got a DX90 so perhaps less problem with efficiency now but still the comfort is the killer.
     
    I'd love to stop in at Noble next time I am in the area and set myself up right proper.

    I think the need to lubricate the plugs is due to them being silicone and deep insertion.  It seems they were intentionally designed that way.  I have seen musicians flick their little westones in and out easily one handed so I figure that must be the acrylic difference.  That is something I would be comfortable with.  Something that 'mostly' seals out the noise and provides a snug fit without requiring expanding foam which hurts my ears.  I don't need 100% isolation, just good comfort, ease of in/out, and great sound.  Price is not a concern as well assuming those 3 qualities are all 4 stars. I think the right thing for me though would be to actually go in and really take a look at the different models and how they fit the customs and what are the different materials, etc.  I imagine the process for proper customization is a bit more careful with the Noble folk.
