That's cheap compared to other brands.
I too make big eyes when I see 200-300 $ cables :)
I enjoy my 100 $ Onso balanced cable ordered on Amazon Japan.
T’es same for me when I see câbles a the 130/300€ ... bam too expensive for me ^^

Which Headphone? Do you have an amp? Is there any thread on the zx300 on 4pda?
No amp and since one week I’m on Shure Se425 (hear different style of music: rock, reggae, hip-hop, hardtek, edm) very nice earphones

Two things,

First does anyone know of a place I can demo Sony XBA-N3 (mostly for fit and comfort) in the US?

And second I tried my zx300 in the car with the aux. imput and I noticed there isn't a line out setting so I don't have to turn it to maximum volume every time. I'm not missing anything settings am I ? Or maybe it's just better to go Bluetooth?

I haven't found any information about line out and my ZX300 is seen by my radio car but I receive message 'couldn't connect' when I try to pair it (car radio is Volkswagen RNS-510 from 2011)

My 300 arrived.... but, where is the BT setting for the EQ? On my 100 there was an extra setting @BT settings ("sound effect progr.")
The 300 is useless without EQ presets for my LDAC BT headphones! :frowning2:
Any idea?
In addition, the balance setting does not work with BT. Another issue.... :frowning2:

My newest addition to my headphones collection has just showed up in my mail today.
As expected, the NW-ZX300 can drive the Sennheiser HD6XX (aka HD650) over the balanced output at high gain settings just fine, in fact getting over 80 in the volume knob becomes painfully loud.
This gives credence to the theory that EU units have an additional hardware implemented volume cap given that according to some users on this forum, those still have a hard time to drive the HD660S in high gain once unlocked with rockbox. (Obviously the HD650 are supposed to be much harder to drive and my own Japanese unit has no issue whatsoever with those)

P.S. I am using a Japanese unit with the destination changed to E.

from the manual
When there is an active Bluetooth connection, the sound quality settings are invalid
today arrived, today sent back. Sorry. 700 Euro and this device does NOT have a simple sound setting for BT devices! This is a joke @Sony! NO balance setting, NO EQ, NO bass / treble... NOTHING, NADA!
The BT connectivity is a joke! My old 100 is working fine with EQ etc. pp. but the 300 has NO basic functions included for a simple sound setting! 700 Euro and this joke device.... I bought a LDAC headphone and YES, I use and I WILL use this connection with a Sony player, but not in this way!
