    Since the Qudelix hasn't even started their crowdfunding campaign yet, it'll be a *while* before it's actually available, so I wouldn't regret picking up the ES100. : )

    I have no idea. I was listening one day and I knew the battery was getting low, and I was thinking to myself, "when is this low battery warning going to alert me" and it didn't till 1%.

    Plus make allowances for maturation of firmware after release, shouldn't assume it will be polished and have 100% functionality on launch (nor is continued development a given, though can hope with the connection to es100 that practice carries over to the new company).

    Personally, I don't care if it's micro USB or USB-C. My Fiio Q1MK2 uses USB micro, and it sounds and works great with both my smartphone and my comp. As long as all the bits are getting through, there's no crackles, pops or hiss...I'm all good!

    I hope an ES120 or even ES200 is well on its way. I like my ES100, but I am carrying BTR5 more and more these days.

    Hello I'm curious, will the EarStudio ES100 work if you pair it to a DAP w/ bluetooth, for example an xDuoo X3ii or a FiiO M5? Will it's DAC be used instead of the DAP's?
  7. kukkurovaca
    Yes, and yes.

    @radsone any idea when MK2 will become available on Amazon UK?

    Can you elaborate? I'm interested in the BTR5 due to the on-unit display and also the higher power output for my Tin HiFi P1s

    Hi ClieOS,

    What made me sell my BTR3 in favour of ES100 was the volume setting.
    When I was altering the volume of the BTR3 while music playback, there was a degrade in dynamics and pure quality of the sound itself as opposed to ES100 volume control which didn't seem to impact SQ.

    Can you tell whether the issue is eliminated in the newer BTR5?
  13. ClieOS Contributor
    There is an high / low gain setting on BTR5, and it certainly has more power than ES100. Can't say I notice any of such issue on BTR5.

    The ES100 has saved yet another IEM that was earmarked for the exit. My Tin T3s (with tape mod) got me into ChiFi and back then I was only connecting directly to my Samsung Note 4. I found the playback to have a slow escalation, towards being fatiguing.

    While I still have to tweak the EQ settings, I was able to walk around with the T3s this morning, without feeling the fatigue that normally sets in.

    One of the advantages of the es100, is the eq, I could set it and will work even with LDAC. And trough any source I pair with.
    Do you know if in the future the btr5 will have Eq working with ldac? Cause that's a major deal breaker for me...... and I was looking forward for the bigger output vs the es100
