    Yes, it is a Xiaomi MI5 PRO, I love it.
    The R3 came with the 1.06 version and the problem was already present, so I updated it to 1.09 but without any luck.
    Thanks for your help, I will contact Hiby for a possible solution, maybe a hard reset will do the trick but don't know how to do it.

    Just press the power button and hold it more than 15 seconds to do a hard reset. Wish that will help you.

    Thx for that.

    If I remember correctly didn’t you get the NightHawks a while back & were burning them in to get ready for the R3 [or maybe that was someone else down there or up here or someone somewhere else?]
    So what :) are you listening to the R3 with?
    That’s an interesting observation from your listening session different than what I had expected, maybe after you burn it in for a few weeks or so & have 100+ HRs on it might help or change your assessment, will like to hear back on it after a while & see if you still have this conviction.

    Anyhow that’s interesting & thx for your initial impressions look forward to an update in a bit!

    Hey Cap

    Thx for that, sounds interesting & I guess it’s that Hint of Horse that really gives it that Kick you need deep into the night!

    Clean tee behind the bar, I like that!

    Out of curiosity, does your phone use an SoC from Qualcomm?

    I got the Focal Listen. It sounds smoth through them but not enough oomph. That’s why maybe a headphone amp might be useful.

    And the Brainwavz B400 I’ve got running as balanced, don’t sound good at all, almost a little overdriven.... and I’ve heard the B400s through a Mojo and they sound gold when using a better DAC.

    I would love a Mojo but can’t afford one. I’m going to do more research on the idsd nano black label.

    Hey that’s right, I knew it was one of the ones I had & now you mention it I remember our conversation recommending them,.

    Ok, well from what I’ve heard the iDSD Nano Black is supposed to be pretty good so might be a good choice for the $, can you demo it anywhere?

    If not I think if you read enough reviews, maybe shoot off an em to iFi customer support with you question/concern about the matchup or even on headfi likely a page on it, so you should be able to satisfy your interest within those areas if not 1st hand, but likely will be a good fit.

    Good Luck...

    Do the B400 hiss on R3 balanced? I demoed Andromedas at a store and those hiss on balanced :/

    I second this sentiment. I thought of flipping my AK jr. originally but it seems I might keep it because of its warm crystal tonality.

    Still early impressions but the R3 sounds ok re:SQ. Portability is where it really shines, along with user experience. If only if I could load up my album covers...

    @reeza - curious on reading your comparison with the hidiz regarding sound.

    I didn’t notice a hiss, but it just wasn’t right, like a the clarity was lost, it was a little distorted maybe?

    Too be honest, I really don’t like AP200, for a lot of reasons, and the sounds one of them... I think the R3 has a smoth warm sound, but the AP200 seems (to my ears) be a little more dynamic... I’m almost thinking it’s the R3s amp stage that needs a little more omph.
