    Sounds like a good excuse to get a new phone. The Pixel 3a and 3a XL are both great low priced options. I have the 3a and love it, and I've had nothing but flagship phones in the past.

    I take no responsibility for your phone, you accept all risk, but if you are desperate to try recovery mode and this file to apply a different firmware, here are secret keys. ITS NOT MY FAULT IF YOU HURT YOUR PHONE OR DATA

    I would personally ditch that metal one and get one of the non-conductive rubber/silicone/plastic ones.

    I honestly thought the stem was plastic when I bought it. I'm just gonna try to cut the stem I think

    ok i was able to cut off the stem but it still doing it, i think the rubber grommet is the one thats triggering it?

    The answer is quite simple, really, nothing except for standard Bluetooth from iOS devices. In short it works as it should, but the only thing I really need my ES100 for is Spotify

    I'm very busy these days, but want to write down some words regarding HE100 (not a review in any way, but some -I hope- useful words for those interested).

    First of all, this is a very very comfortable IEM to use on the go. Cable is fixed, but I think none will find any problem with it sound-wise. There's a vent to help retain moisture and sweat.
    Sound is pretty balanced but requires a good seal (nothing difficult due to very friendly shape). Bass is very good. Is clearly there and goes quite low, but there's some roll-off in the bottom end (and a bit in the upper one, but I mention it later). Continuing with bass, it is clear, quick, defined and has good texture. Mids are clean, defined and have good timbre (and are not recessed nor too ahead). Highs are a bit rolled off, but on the other hand are clear, have air and spark and I love the timbre of cymbals specially (but timbre is very good in general).
    Build quality and finishes are very good too. Nothing to regret. Mic and controls work very well (better mic than most of my other cables with mic).

    Negative points:
    - Cable has a LOT of microphonics. Especially the upper part, the one that has no cloth covering (and especially if you wear them cable-down). A simple gripper solves this.
    - Typical high mids boost to gain clarity (don't like it at all, but there're no sibilances). I prefer smooth sound at the cost of 5-10% of detail anyday.
    - Very good for classical, soft jazz and acoustic music in general, but I like to EQ lows a bit up (only sub-bass and a pinch of mid-bass) and high mids a bit down when listening to metal, hard rock...

    Summing up, I honestly think that HE100 is a very good option and deserves the price asked. If you like soft music genres, it sounds quite better than some more expensive gear (and it can be an all terrain with some punctual equalization).
    I remember myself on the very first listen (without any burn-in) thinking: Sound is very good. Pretty transparent and very detailed for a sub-100 DD, but in general I like a bit more warmth and the peak in high mids bothered me a bit at first (no sibilance at all). Layering and resolution are good at this price range and soundstage is decent/good depending on track used. 3D is good too, but I find it better in both ends and too much centered in most of the mids (voice, guitar...).

    I'd recommend HE100 any time to any friend that uses to listen classic/jazz... And this is something serious for me cause I like good but authoritative bass and much prefer a bit warmish sound.

    Feel free to ask any question.

    the es100 is in the unique position of being one of the few viable bluetooth/wired solutions available. not to mention, the es100 came out of nowhere so expectations are rising. i just receivd the he100's and i am addicted.

    some of us prefer strictly wired but there are way too many easy solutions for that. for some of us, the es100 is a 2 fer 1 solution. best of both worlds on wired and wireless and the DAC and app are amazing. yes mk2 is $100. i was fortunate enough to get my es100 on sale. i am fixing to buy another at the $100 price with no hesitation. the es100 can also be used as a DAC. battery life and micro USB are the two weakest links and the battery life is sufficent around 8-10h but as with many mobile devices more is better.

    liberate yourself. free your mind. you don't have to go on a cleaning rampage to enjoy this. i am in the position of using my old LG V20 as a DAP with and w/o the ES100. my edc is a note9 so the shackles are broke free. notice how many enjoy this little bugger? even the 'philes with money? notice how unassuming it is also without branding everywhere? or using premium materials which also has tradeoffs like upping the price? i can only imagine there has been at least a handful of funerals from being washed and dried. best $100 you spent.

    So I've been messing around my Android's Dev options and I found that you can manually set the bt audio sample rate. So I was messing with 96k. While I'm able to set it to 96k, Everytime I start up the es100 it would go back down to 44.1k and have to go back to the settings and put it back to 96. Now this is not some discussion about 44.1 vs 96k, I'm just curious if it's the es100 that's putting it back down to 44.1. since I askednon my.phones discord and they suggested that it's what evers connected to the bt that's putting it back down.

    Not sure what is your question. These developer options reset everytime you reboot, turn off Bluetooth in your device... I set them just after connect ES100 always to 24bit, 96kHz and 990/990 kbps and pretty happy :gs1000smile:
  15. bbnn
    Oh ok so Everytime I turn off the es100, it would reset the sample rate back to 44.1k, and I would have to set it back to 96k when I turn the es100 back on? I'm wondering if this is not al behaviour, I was under the impression that the dev options would only reset upon reboot of the phone.
