@myusernameislove, I'm having the same problem with the m0, and therefore eyeing the m2x. I stream from phone to the DAP via bluetooth, and then output via USB to a mojo. This works perfectly, and is amazing. However, the battery life is very poor, around 2.5-3 hours. I'm hoping the m2x can last longer when doing this.

Hi, battery capacity is 4 times larger then in M0, yet the battery life is quite similar. If I will use M2X primarily as BT (LdAC) receiver with USB transport (to Mojo), and keep the screen off, will I get longer battery life with M2X than with M0? In M0 some users reported 3 hours only battery life in this mode, but that is SOC that relies on small battery. In M2X we got dac + amps + big battery, and if I intend not to use those amps and dac and only send signal out via USB transport, there SHOULD be significantly better battery life than with M0, is it correct assumption? 8 hours maybe?
Are we once again confusing the useless red battery indicator with battery life? The two are quite different things.

Battery life is exhausted when the player shuts down, many hours after the indicator turns red.

I have not heard ES100, but I imagine M2X sounds better, since ES100 is comparable to BTR3, and M2X should be above BTR3 sound-wise
can you compare SQ with shanling own M0?
i like how M0 sound, hopefully M2X has that musical shanling sound signature.

The M0 and M2X sound very similar from my brief comparisons so far, but the M2X is a step up in terms of quality. I have not done very detailed comparisons yet though, just with one set of IEMs (Custom Art FIBAE Black). So far I would say that you won't be disappointed by the M2X if you like the M0.

Besdides both being good DAPs for their price ranges, M0 and M2X are different actually :)

M0 was quite smooth, a bit too thick and a bit too laid back, M2X is more engaging, much better midrange, more dynamic and clear. Much better treble presentation. M2X is pretty much a killer budget DAP, where M0 was a good ultra-portable :)

If you consider $219 'budget', can I please have your budget? I sure hope M2X is mid-range, otherwise I will end up being very poor at this rate.

"Welcome to Head-fi! Sorry about your wallet."

It might be a bit of a running joke, but when I first came here my budget was more in the range of "sensible", now it has gone past "bonkers" and is leaning heavily towards "are you insane?!". :D
So yeah, the term "budget" is rather subject to interpretation around here. One thing is for sure though, the M2X sits comfortably in the "value for money" category.

I'm always amused by the folks claiming that $800 IEMs are a remarkably cheap price point. My household income is in the top quintile for the USA, but if I drop $800 on headphones, my wife will shoot me.

Yes, it is a very strange hobby we live in. I can only buy the sort of gear I buy because my wife and I rarely spend on anything. No holidays because of work, no nights out because of work, honeymoon in a luxury hotel... because of work (my wife had a conference there). :sweat_smile:

M2X sits well in the "budget" area, midrange is already X5-3 / M5S / Cayin N5ii / FiiO M9 / Opus #1S.

Having a good price / performance ratio was always an advantage of Shanling, so I wouldn't worry about that, for the features it has and sound, M2X should probably move the market towards making stuff more affordable with better options, but as far as things are right now, I think calling it budget is fair, it isn't entry-level, nor necessarily an ultra-portable :)

Pardon me, but I think those are two different issues :)

Disappointed that no case or screen savers in the box. Im concerned that the brightness was up 100% and it looked dull in review video.I feel keeping the DAP on highest brightness setting would use up battery pretty fast. Im still partial to the M6 based on its screen quality.

i don't think brightness was 100%, also keep in mind the reviewer used bright lighting setup projected into the DAP for the review purpose...if M2X brightness anything like M0 or any previews shanling DAPs then i think its fine.

it was at 100%, I showed that in video

sure I do. I mentioned that too. M2x screen isn't the best in any aspect (including brightness), but at the same time it's definitely isn't the worst one :)
