    After a year of heavy usage the clip on my ES100 broke last week and now the play/pause button is not working properly. I'll probably wait for the Accessport Air to arrive and if I still miss the ES100 I'll get another one....

    Sorry to hear that. If was just the clip, there are various crazy glue options lol. But crazy glue won't fix the the play/pause button!

    I just looked at the Accessport Air. What tickles your fancy about it?

    I'm wondering as well. It's only $35 but a very basic receiver with no aptX HD or LDAC, can't use as a DAC, and no balanced output.

    I have a feeling FiiO is gonna announce something this coming week... Maybe a BTR4/5 would Balanced Port.

    So Did both the factory reset and also deleted and reinstalled the App, deleted the BT connection and re established and still hear no difference using the EQ. Whether using as HP amp or preamp to my stereo! WTH? Maybe I got a defective unit! Not sure but very disappointed at this point! May try and send it back for exchange. So wanted to love this unit, but not happy at this point! EQ was the feature that sold me on this little guy! Sucks!!

    That would be great.

    I'd like to be able to attach the ES-100 to my belt but have so far not found any kind of holder that will do this without the device ending up hanging around my knees. Does anybody here have a solution?

    Tbh I don't think that it'll outperform the ES100 but I've already backed the project so I think I'll check it out before getting another ES100. It's also difficult for me to buy the ES100 from Norway due to taxes and expensive shipping (it would probably cost me close to $200). I can get it delivered to my parents in Sweden but it'll take a while before I'd be able to pick it up there.

    Balanced is not important to me as long as the single ended option is well implemented (I don't believe that a balanced output is always better than a single ended one).

    I've got plenty of small DACs that I prefer over the ES100 so this functionality is not important to me.

    I also don't feel like supporting FiiO for several reasons so they're not an option for me.

    I don't know if this answer your question but it's the way I'm thinking :wink:

    Edit; I will probably try to superglue the clip before the other side breaks as well.

    That makes as much sense as anything! It's too bad that you get gouged so much in Norway.

    As far as fixing the clip is concerned, the "phone clip / es100" that I posted a picture of works quite well, and I might just glue the es100 to it instead of using the dual lock. The only downside is that the clip is as big as the es100.

    Edit: mind you, the dual lock does allow me to switch to my retrofitted shanling M0 clip (which doesn't clip very well):

    Advanced didn't incorporate a balanced bc none of their products have balanced cables. I backed project as I'm a fan of Adv and I will probably gift it to my dad and get him on the BT train. I wish it had AptX as their M3 BT cable has it but AAC is still better than SBC

    Yes, I had an old broken blackberry phone case. I just yanked the clip off and then attached some 3M dual lock. See spoiler for images:
