I'm not a real audiophile anyways.
I'm more interested in a traditional mp3 player than a hi-fi DAP, but suitable options are slim.
A large part of it is battery life. My ancient iRiver was advertised at 45 hours per (1) AA battery, and that was actually about right. Most modern devices don't even hit half that, except with fixed proprietary rechargeable batteries.
Another part is user interface. Why is it so hard to just copy a decade+ old iPod?
Storage is another issue. 128gb microSD cards are now cheap, but everything only "supports up to 32gb". What does that even mean? Maybe it supports more, but sometimes not. Great.
Not enough of them have Bluetooth.
Finally,I don't have the budget to be a real audiophile. My current smartphone is good enough. If I wanted a separate device, I'd dig up my old Galaxy S3. If I couldn't find it, I'd probably cheap out on a Sansa or Fiio M3 or something.

Have had the Headset since around the end of Jan, recently I am only getting sound through the one ear. Any thoughts on a solution? The normal unplugging and plugging back in just isn't cutting it. PC audio settings are exactly the same.

How fast does the earbuds charge in the case? I'm assuming that the 2 hour charge time is for the case+buds as 2 hours charge time for 50 mAh is quite slow.

Drop support is rubbish!!!
People need to be aware of how useless and incompetent drop support staff are. Over 11 days and still haven't been contacted about the issue I submitted. Last time I got someone it was "Claire" who was not only incompetent, tried to scam me and wasn't very bright (judging from what she said, also she appeared very dishonest) Surely Drop can find decent employees instead of the below average ones they have working there now.... unless there are reasons good employees don't want to work for them.

More vacuum tube show and tell. This lot of Reflektor 6P3S (6L6G) from 1990 was another score from a vendor in Ukraine for an extremely reasonable price. Nice big cheap batches like this are...

The support, Small story, Big problem....600$ down the drain
So I ordered a Massdrop X Focal Elex Headphone. I was so happy that I could finally do it where I live with a poor salary and it took me two months to do so. I'm 22 btw. Any how, I put the wrong address by accident and it has been and hour since I noticed it. I tried to change it, but it said "Internal error". So as many will do, I decided to contact Drop's support. In the first time, they replied within 1 hour which is above my expectation. They said that it will be fixed, and there will be no issues since it was not shipped yet. However, the 2nd day and it gets shipped...the address has not changed in the waybill...everything is still the same. Tried contacting them another time, no reply. 3 Days have passed now....and still no reply about the situation. What's bothering me if that shipment goes to the old address. It will be terminated, for good. I never cared about money, but It took me too much time to collect and actually buy a high-end headphone for the first time...

Kinera releases it's latest all-ba IEM, Kinera Skuld. It's equipped with 5(two custom tuned+3 Knowles)ba driver. It has a impressive super flat frequency response bested only by the Odin in their Lineup. The hand painted shells looks stunningly beautiful.

Is and AMP/DAC needed to get the most out of the HD58x?
I recently bought the HD58x headphones and i was wondering if i needed and AMP/DAC to get the most out of them. I previously used the Razer Kraken v2's and since upgrading to the HD58x i haven't really noticed a difference. I am using them with my Mac Mini M1.
