Thanks to Oneplus removing the headphone jack on their next phone I have decided to get an ES100 which I will clip on around my shirt collar/ top button. What is the general consensus on cable length to the headphones in these situations? I was thinking about 40cm but not sure if that might be a bit long or not.

I got the ES 100 at my collar, and cable length is 48 cm. Which is optimal imo, it's just enough to have the cable/IEMS around my neck when they aren't in use..

Cool sounds like I just need to experiment with what I find comfortable then. Going to get a Forza Audioworks cable made to go with my ES100 and my K10s hopefully it will be a good combination.

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't want to change the firmware mid-review for the sake of consistency (and fear of bricking it in the process haha). I updated to 1.4.2 just now. Time for some testing ^_^

Great review!

So to you the single AK4376A DAC outdoes the dual AK43765A DAC setup?? Interesting.

Yes please let us know about your retest results, including a power consumption comparison too!!

Thanks. But I never said the AK4376A is better. I did say that AKM claims it's better in their marketing spiel on their website. It's hard to imagine any current DAC being able to make the ES100 sound better than it does already!

Ok. What I meant was, even with the BETR3 having a single (and newer) DAC vs. dual, you still felt it sounded better than the ES100? Interesting.

I'm still confused here, so sorry if I'm missing something obvious! Are you talking about the BTR3 comparison in my review? If so then I didn't say the BTR3 sounds better, just that it sounds a little more lean and transparent. So not necessarily better depending on your preferences but just different. :wink:

I use it primarily as a Bluetooth adapter to stream Spotify from my Android phone.

Lol! That has been me a few times!

75% of the time as BT adaptor. But it's a really good usb dac, so 25% of the time it's connected to my laptop (with the added bonus being a phone mic at the same time).

It's all good.

Let's try this a different way lol.....................yes, I am referring to the BTR3 vs. ES100 section of your review. So ok, if you HAD to choose between the two based on sound quality, meaning which one sounded better to you, which one would you choose?? And why?

I can not comment for crabdog but I can comment for me :) Based on sound quality, build and connection stability I would go with BTR3, based on the features, balanced output and updates I would go with ES100. I own both for now and will give FiiO a month or 2 to see if they will provide dedicated app or more features...
