    Don’t feel bad, @Marco Angel and I were talking with @JamesFiiO about this a while ago, and this is the first I’ve heard about the release. Glad to see thinner ear hooks and a chin slider. Ordered one this evening. Thanks!

    I have a set of FiiO .78 2-pin cables like that. Didn’t like them too much due to stiffness and micro phonics. Other than that the sound and fit was good.

    Yeah I've also got one at normal length and hate it due to the reasons you mention. Hopefully they've developed it to be better in the short version, if not there's plenty of better alternatives (especially for normal length) for less money these days.

    For those that have made custom cables, what length did you end up settling with?

    I didn't make it myself but the length I went for was 40cm which was just enough to clip it onto my shirt collar and still be able to move my head about freely.

    56598E20-9A93-4F71-8038-A5E6000030EA.jpeg I also purchased that FiiO short cable and have been using it for a day or two. It is 45 cm in length and is long enough to allow freedom of movement when I have the ES-100 attached to my collar, but not too long where it is a nuisance. Microphonics are not an issue at all. For the money it’s not bad. I would prefer to have a shorter version of the cable offered with the FA7- shown in the pic below since it tangles a lot less.

    I also have the Fiio BT cable- black cable shown in the pic. I love that cable since it is compact, easy to use, but obviously does not connec to the ES-100, but it sure is convenient.

    That looks nice... 2 pin gets no love. -_-

    New issue (for me) listening via USB to a MacOS Mojave client machine while also connected over BT to my phone - GPM devolves into a burst of crackles, then stops playing - my ES hasn't lived the most sheltered life, and has given me hiccups before, but nothing like this.
    Without a reboot I can't seem to get any audio out of it on BT or USB.

    Troubleshooting help would be great, I am on latest firmware (flashed this morning after my first crash).

    Edit: after reboot I've made it through a few songs on BT without incident, playing the same album. Going to swap USB cables and see if that is related.

    Edit2: different USB cable, same result - approx 1 minute in ES crashes and ceases to function

    noice :)

    BTW, do you think it's possible to remove the outside part near the MMCX terminal? To make it more flexible?

    It would take some careful cutting with a very steady hand. Not worth that risk- for me.
    Actually- that earshield would be of help long term - so the cable doesn’t harden from sweat, oils...etc.

    I see your point. It does look good with ES100

    And I can't get over how much worse same content sounds via Bluetooth. It feels like a watered down coke that you'd get from a dispenser vs a genuine bottled product (I'm from Europe so no high fructose BS for us here).

    As long as you are using AptX or above there really shouldn't be a significant (meaning easily audible) difference over an advanced BT codec vs USB (at least when using a receiver such as the ES100.) You might want to verify that you a not using SBC.

    Yeah, but how? I'm not doing anything special, it is connected to my iPhone via BT and that's it, there's not much I can configure there, is it? Unless I'm missing the obvious.
