In emergency situation, assume without PC. Does anyone ever succeed in using XD-05 with iPad pro in USB C or iPhone 7/8?

I bought the XD-05, thru Massdrop, a few months ago and really like it, but it appears to be having an issue with it's built in power supply and need to get the unit replaced under warranty, so who exactly handles the warranty, who exactly to contact. I believe the unit was shipped was shipped from Asia.

Am i the only one that struggles to get a connection going with my phone? Im not sure if its the device itself or the USB cable (OTG to USB-C)... but i have to restart the XD-05 a few times or remove and reconnect the type C cable from the phone for the display to change from '44.1 khz' to 'DSD 256' (when i press play at this point the display changes to '48 khz' and works). Is there a trick to get the device to detect immediately? Thanks!

Does anybody have suggestions (based on firsthand experience) of an op-amp to roll in here besides the Burson? I have the V5i in mine now, and the soundstage is better than the TI, and the highs are more airy, and it handles sibilants better. But the bass is weak on the Burson compared to the stock TI and it tends to break up at lower volumes. I'd like the best of both worlds in one chip.

This or NX4 DSD from Topping ? For power @ 600ohms without distortion.

Would this be a good match, for running my Sony MDR 1A on a Huawei Mate 10 Pro smartphone? The volume is very very low on the Huawei and the sound misses some finesse.

I haven't heard the Monoprice THX unit, but it has received unanimous praise. I have no doubt that it would sound significantly cleaner and more detailed than the FiiO (which, in my experience is better sounding than other ~$100 DAC/amps I've heard)... although a bit weak on power from its single-ended out. In than regard, the Monoprice is significantly better... and it also has an optical-in, LED, and configurable settings (incl. EQ).

Still waiting on your reply. In your opinion, what its the best closed-back headphone for 'portable' use? (The Sivga SV006 even comes with a semi-hard travel case.)

How powerful is this thing compared to the Topping NX4?

Would this be complete overkill for the Meze 99s I just picked up for my desk at work? 90% of my listening is just Spotify at my desk, at moderate volume (I've already got permanent tinnitus, no need to blast myself every day). They're already pretty great for that right off the computer. Am I likely to get a significant/ noticeable difference?

It's not about the amp, this thing is a great DAC first, so you will definitely get greater playback fidelity. If you grab an upgrade headamp later, the XD-05 wil sound even better feeding its line-out to the upgrade amp with your headphones plugged into that amp.

Unnecessary for the Meze 99, as the Meze are very sensitive and run well straight off my phone. My XD-05 has the stock op-amp replaced with the Burson V5i. This is a very bad pairing with the Meze 99. The midbass is really overdone and muddied (referring to the pairing, not the sound of the Burson/XDuoo alone) , and it exacerbates the one big flaw of the 99's - the midbass. I don't know how it would match up with the stock op-amp. I can say that my XD-05 can drive Sennheiser HD6xx and Hifiman HE4xx effortlessly and sounds wonderful with these cans.

I do a hefty amount of traveling + video editing on the go. One of my issues, especially on airplanes, is working and getting a high enough volume to hear what is going on clearly. I like to use IEMs when I edit, even though over ears seem like no brainers, but right now my laptop can't push any quality IEMs I use. Would this thing work well for airplane and work on the road? Does the charge hold long enough? Is it a pain to deal with? Thanks my favorite community

I'm considering between this and the NX4. Which would you recommend for desk use? I'm leaning towards the xd 05

I love my NX4. It is VERY powerful. The xduoo has more mW at 32 ohms though so it could possibly push headphones even more. I'm saving for the xduoo right now.
