    Oops, sorry, I meant to say adapters are available, but realize now it looks like alo has the adapters.

    I found them at Lend Me ur ears. One caveat is I ordered last week and still waiting for them to ship. They did say when I ordered the adapters were out of stock, and I elected to wait, I could have cancelled.
    With Chinese New Year, may be waiting a bit more.

    Check out Optoma Nuforce’s HEM2, the cable is removable.
    Also heard pretty good things about Sony’s XBA-N1 (and better about the N3).
    Also Final’s E4000 have enjoyed a positive under-the-radar reception.

    Oh and stop shooting those loud guns will you they will mess up your hearing :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Thanks for pointing that out. I'll edit my post.

    Thanks - I hope the $37 is for a pair, not one, but that's still a bit pricey. I guess for a really high priced cable it would make sense.

    Thinking about replacing my ES100 with a DAP, specifically the HiBy R3. Anyone who has had both devices have any thoughts on sound quality, which they find themselves gravitating towards and why, etc?

    I have not owned both. There is something intriguing about a portable device that small will a sound signature that appeals to the masses, wrote in-house apps well enough to suck in extra loyalty bonus points and the biggest gripe as is, is probably battery life and 12h+ is pretty good especially for it's size. Being a Bluetooth receiver with a well received DAC punches far above it's weight as a pros bulletpoint. I'm sure many of us have a wishlist with at least 5 changes we would like to see in a second gen model. I bet many of us would be happy if the only change they made was upgrading the battery so you could get 3 8h days without having to even think about a charger. I would like to see more competition for Bluetooth DACs not just to see how low the noise floor can go but for the variety in designs

    I have both, and they're each a very different use case. I use my ES100 to stream mostly Apple Music from my phone, my R3 to play my FLAC tracks that I don't want to bother transferring to my phone. I don't EQ on the R3, but I use the MSEB and it sounds great. I probably use the ES100 more, but usually in situations where I don't want a separate piece of equipment. But I love my R3. So I think both can coexist.

    Possibly a stupid question...

    Little experience with BT and zero with BT amps, but this device is very tempting.

    If I use the ES100 with headphones/IEMs that have a mic on the cable, is said mic useable for calls? Or does the ES100's mic "override" it?

    ES100 mic will override it.

    This is not limited to ES100 - never know any BT adapter (*including BT amp) that allows the mic on the original headphone to work - it is technically possible but not easy to implement, thus no one actually implemented it. Put an extra mic on the adapter itself is far easier / cheaper to do.



    Mod'ed this cable from KZ's new balanced 2.5mm SPC cable - shorten it to about 50cm and reterminated it with Etymotic mmcx connector.

    KZ's cable is quite good in quality and I'll recommend it if you are thinking about modding a cable for your ES100
