    It might, I'm not gonna mess around with something that I don't know :)
    Personally, if I can't hear it, it stays at default. I move around a lot so most of them tiny details won't affect much for me.
    I actually want to try balanced for my SE846 but still waiting for Amazon US to have Fiio new short 2.5mm cable (I have the 3.5 one and it's awesome/perfect for ES100 :))
    The second one. Normal mode will restart the unit whenever you connect it so not great for USB DAC.
    "Auto Power Off when Charger Connected" description does say that it turns off when connect to charger but will stay on with USB DAC

    I didn't know FiiO makes short cable, Hows the Quality of the cable? Flexible ? Any chance you could link or tell me the model for MMCX connector ?

    Just ordered it from Aliexpress some days ago. Model is FiiO LC-3.5BS

    EDIT:Look at the S behind B, I think it indicates that it's the Short version

    I am getting clicks and pops on 192k 24 bit files

    I am transmitting them from Qobuz Sublime + on my Fii0 M9 via LDAC

    To ES100 (latest firmware) LDAC recieve mode

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    I kinda ruins playback for these files for me.

    Thanks in advance .

    CORRECTION. I think I have identified that it's the FiiO M9 running Qobuz 192k files that has this playback issue.

    Correct, the S means short.
    The FiiO LC-3.5BS is a very nice cable although the connectors are not suitable for every IEM. They don't fit my AKG N40 as the connector touches the housing, which gives tension on the connectors.
    FiiO has a cheaper, basic, cable the LC-3.5AS. Costs half of the BS and the quality/workmanships shows but it's a decent basic cable. That one fit's my N40's and I don't think it influences sound much. I'm rocking the nicer BS cable on the UE900.

    Hopefully a 2-pin balanced cable is in the works. Would love to use my 64 Audio U8 or Custom Art Ei.XX with the ES100.

    I'm getting clicks and popping while using Spotify WEB Player and Foobar as a USB DAC.

    Faulty Unit?

    So right now in the process of returning faulty unit, I liked EarStudio that much that I ordered new one very soon after first died(battery not charging). Finally I have also balanced cable for iSine 20, first impressions are that balanced mode goes a little deeper and a bit cleaner in the midrange. I have both cables, so maybe I’ll try some ABing.

    Interesting is that new unit came with latest FW and the old one (ordered at beginning of Feb) came with FW 1.3 or something like that.

    As I used new unit already for few hours, I see(personal observation) that Radsone hears what customers wants, buttons on the new unit are slightly higher above surface, therefore much easier to find and click is more clicky, which I find to be more user friendly.

    Funny is that probably Amazon firstly sent me some old unit from back of the shelf, which could cause the battery issues and second unit is from new batch/revision.

    Man. You just pissed in a lot of people's Cheerios. I wouldn't mind some raised buttons. Click buttons is a bones. Not that the ES100 were mushy but have some tactile feedback is a welcome feature.
  10. mhoopes
    I added my own raised dots, though probably more raised than Radsone will ever make them. I wanted to be able to feel them with gloves on. See Post #3160.

    It would be interesting if you could provide a picture of the raised buttons on your new unit. I am wondering if they are raised due to manufacturing variation as opposed to a revised design.

    Damn my Next / Previous buttons are pretty damn FLUSHED when I touch them w/o activating it...
  15. TooPoorForHiFi
    Can you post a Picture of you touching the Next / Previous track without activating it? I'm trying to see if they flush into the case w/o it being activated.
