I forgot to mention I’m using the feature that only charges the battery up to 90% in order to prolong the overall life of the battery. Maybe that’s why I’m only getting 8 to 9 hours of playback.

Is anyone going lose using this feature? If so, how much battery life are you getting?

Nope I use that feature and got way more than 8 hours on balanced. Atm I don't have a balanced set up atm but I will and will try it. That sounds way too low though. In get about 22 hours or so on single out, with flac. Hey Jon do you have the screen on a lot? That will drain battery fast. I shut mine down when I'm listening and have it set for 60 seconds auto off.

What are you doing during idle time on your player? If I turn the DAP off when not using it. Then in when I’m using it, i’m getting what feels like a lot more play time. I should probably start using the auto-off function. After four hours I only get one bar down of actual play time on full charge - as an example.

I never turn mine off and still get amazing battery life for a high end dap. The sleep function is really good. I haven't turned mine off since I received it.

Mines lost power twice. Today it went down a little rapidly ... but I did go walking outside in the -10C weather, so that might have had something to do with it.

Yep that will affect a battery for sure.

Oh balanced at last :) mee cable set is quite excellent btw, cable is thick 8 braid and soft. Sounds so good :) And my friend kms108 yes my balanced indicator is exactly like yours with the ced looking paler than the balan. I can live with it for this sound.

Ha ha I got my re 800 today ( I was so excited) and my mee cable kit ( looks ok ) and guess what?? One of the fing re800 buds was completely dead! So my first hi fi man purchase and my last :frowning2: And they were the perfect size. So back they go and I'm trying the oriveti new primus or whatever so I can at least see if I can tolerate the fit and enjoy balanced.

If not then SE I will happily stay, and see if klipsch gets into balanced or suck up and try the new senn ie800.

Maybe hifiman should have spent more on quality control instead of a 24 k paint job and a mini suitcase.
Is that the Mee Audio cable with adapters? Have you had a chance to use it yet? Any opinions? I'm about to decide whether to get the Musashino 4.4mm - 3.5mm adapter or wether that kit will serve more purpose.

Actually I just played dumb to the exchange rate and bought the Musashino adapter - I hope it will come in handy

About to cop the Zx300 but was wondering if the OEM leather case scratches the corners over time? Or are the corners soft enough not to scratch?

I'd probably want to take it out here and there to admire its full glory.

I have the OEM case, it's a really snug fit (and the quality feels great). I wouldn't worry about any damage to the silver model but the black one has a fairly sensitive coating. There's a soft lining on the inside of the case that extends to the parts that hold on to the housing of the zx300. The case doesn't really strike me as the type to be taken on and off frequently. Here's some pics...

lol yep it's the mee adaptor set, and it's really nice quality, cable is really thick and still supple. I'm sure the musashimo will be really nice, I just got 40 bucks off this one and free 2 day shipping. Time will tell but it seems really nice.
