    I accidentally turned on PO out mode on my XBA N3 which are 32 ohms and 107 db sensitivity rated, via 3.5mm out with high gain for one second. What are the chances that I could damage my earphones this way?

    I already ****ed a pair of bang & olufsen and fight a tinnitus since then..
    Wrote 1000 emails to hiby to remove that function in the drop down menu...

    My girlfriend also had this accidentally but she uses quite high impedance headphones so the impact was just a few hours ear ringing and no damage.

    So the chance to really **** up your gear and ear is high.. I switched to balanced then.. There is no lo for balanced..

    I have checked in specs of my iems and they have 100mw power handling. So, hiby r3 is rated at 56+56 mw with high gain and that means that my earphones May be damaged?

    If anyone is interested I’m selling my R3. PM me it’s also listed E1A3E9E2-3608-49E4-9F87-9FBF146E9A2E.jpeg

    They would be marked for power handling per earpiece, so that's 56mW. That said I've reminded HiBy to make the warning box that should pop up whenever the LO button / menu item is tapped working again... :sweat_smile:

    Continuing the now sad saga of my dead R3....

    Again a prompt and courteous response from Hiby. Viewed the video and purchase details aaaaaand, want the unit shipped to Hong Kong.

    Not a great outcome for me. In fact, I’m in between deciding whether to ship it and play through or chuck the dead red lump as far east out the side door as I can and leave it as lesson of “should have known better”.

    Bottom line for me is the sense that a not fully refined and functioning device is marketed, and I as the purchaser should not only do without the device, I paid what little extra &$$& I had for, but also I get the privilege of being kicked in the nuts with an overseas shipping tab.

    Not a happy Hiby guy

    Thought of buying R5 but... finally decided NO.

    Unless Hiby fixes their quality control issues and start supporting in USA, no one will buy from here after reading these No Support stories (wait... you need to send it Asia on our expenses to get the product repaired).

    Proud owner of 3.5 mm headphone jack broken R3.

    There's a US distributor (Musicteck), and anyone buying from them or the retailers they distribute to in the US has full local support...

    What about people who bought it directly from Hiby or from Crowdfunding?

    When I raised my ticket, they told me to ship it to China or Hong kong at my expense.

    Wait Joe, Amazon doesn’t qualify as a US supplier? Why should I be tied to any exclusive vendor to expect support?

    Really, the ship to us far away and wait aspect is just the last jab in a sense. I’ve read this thread through, and the 392 pages of discussion don’t focus on the good side of the R3.
    I stated it earlier, I shouldn’t need a degree of any sort or be an audiophilic genius to purchase and enjoy a product. The R3 is not well “polished” for general sale.
  14. Joe Bloggs Contributor
    It does, can you give me your purchase link? service@hiby.com may have made a mistake.
  15. rjerwa
    @Joe Bloggs - cannot pm you for whatever reason. Have you mail address you’re ok to share?
