    Nice cables!

    I just received the Earstudio today and have been listening all afternoon (after getting most recent firmware installed). Great little device. I don't have what anyone would consider to be an 'audiophile' collection of equipment, but it sounds fantastic on what I have tried.

    For IEM's I have some Shure SE215's, and a pair of ATH M50's for full sized. It drives both really well and has a nice balanced sound. I have been feeding both over LDAC with both FLAC and Spotify....just sounds stellar.

    My only other current listening interface is a RME Babyface Pro ....which really is a great piece of gear...and has a wonderful DSP based EQ that you can apply to the HP outs.
    There are differences between the two, but honestly, I think the Earstudio holds its own...which is really an amazing thing to accomplish considering the price difference between the two.

    Anyways...not really adding anything to the thread...just chiming in to say I really like what I am hearing so far. :)

    I have limited knowledge....so why are you doing this?
  5. Pro-Jules
    there is a help guide at the bottom of that eq settings page

    I am doing some big eq boosts 6db on bass and I dont want to overload the internal electronics. It sounds fine on the stock settings. But doing this gives me the best chance at "headroom".

    I am still expirementing and comparing with or without is a bit tricky due to level changes.

    Does anybody have any specific settings when using the ES100 in the car with the auxiliary input?
    I am using it to stream hi-res audio (LDAC through Android) instead of the regular Bluetooth in my car (2015 Jaguar with 825 Watt Meridian system).
    P.S.- I did put a ground loop isolator in to reduce interference, but that is from the car. Not the ES100.

    My car accepts FLAC files in the SD card slot so I rarely use Bluetooth for music and even more rarely my aux input jack. I occasiioccas use my USB thumb drive to play songs I only have (or are only available as MP3) as a MP3 file.

    If you have your ES100 EQ'd I would set the tone/EQ settings of the car radio to default or flat.

    I left the car set at its regular (default) eq setting.

    Treble +5
    Bass +1

    Then (while parked!) I used the iPhone app to add further eq via the ES100 on songs I really know the sound of to 'finesse' the sound.

    there are a handful of songs I use as sonic benchmarks from Lou Reed, Green Day, Miles Davis, Shawn Colvin and AD/DC.

    I just slide the eq faders around untill I love the sound.

    Then save the eq into one of the 4 blank presets (press and hold it) and name it "Car".

    The quality from the ES100 is amazing to start with so it's good fun taking it even further.

    If you have updated to the latest firmware would use the "wide Q" setting.

    The weird thing about the Meridian system in my car is that it doesn't play FLAC. You would think a higher end system would do better than just MP3.

    Yes, I am kinda addicted on building new cable for the ES100.

    Does the ES100 often go on sale?

    I realize usb dac mode of es100 is afterthought but I have use for it. I can’t get it to work with UAPP though. UAPP recognizes the dac and initializes it. EarStudio app shows USB as input. But no sound. I’ve tried two different OTG cables. Tried forcing 16 bit, bit perfect, 16/44.1 tracks only, etc. Realize es100 across usb is 16/48 max. Weird thing is that if UAPP is not allowed to use dac and I start up TIDAL app then TIDAL works fine. Also UAPP will also occasionally work with some switching back and forth with TIDAL app but I can not consistently reproduce. Essential PH-1, Android Pie. Does anyone have success with UAPP, OTG cable and ES100? Thought I would ask here before pinging UAPP developer. Thanks!

    I got mine off amazon for $80 around the holidays.

    При подключении ES100 к компьютеру через Bluetooth требуется пин-код. Где его взять? Все стандартные типы 0000 1234 9999 1111 не подходят. ((
