If you are using a desktop system the qudelix and schiit fulla are good options.You should see if the shiite fulla can take the audio and mic input. If it can take an optical audio input that would be great but then it might not receive mic input. I have owned a pair of Astro’s before and I know the transceiver could take an optical audio input and then receive mic input on a different channel. They sounded excellent as well. I haven’t used the Shiit Fulla but if it could act the same way than that would be a great setup. I might consider keeping one for myself as a collection. I do own a Qudelix and sound wise it is sonically good (at 24-bit/96khz the sound quality doesn’t get much better than this with bluetooth over L-DAC. The sound quality and fidelity are basically the same, usb-dac or bluetooth, if not a slight edge to wired). Imaging, soundstaging, instrument separation, detail, it’s all there. It’s a pretty darn good receiver. (The ES9128p chip is a similar brand found in some of Fiio’s music players although Fiio’s sampling rates are higher 32-bit/384khz). The qudelix does have a built in mic to take whatever headset you plug in and make it compatible with calls so it might not work with the PC-38X’s mic. Also, beware of getting the qudelix for the bluetooth abilities (it sounds great but there will always be a delay. If you are using this to watch movies, videos, or for gaming, I would recommend a wired option). If you use it as a usb-dac there won’t be a delay and it will use pass through power instead of the battery. This means you can still use it as a tiny and powerful dac but also take on the go whenever you feel like. You could also try the ddHiFi TC35B. It’s a little metal usb-c adapter that uses an ALC5686 chip (32-bit/384khz). It also takes in-line controls for mic inputs. Some people on drop do say that it stops working after sometime or it cuts out so I am not too sure about the quality but I have been wanting to try it out myself. They made a new aluminum that might be better. The older one was made out of titanium and heavy which might have been causing the issues. The TC35i is a lightning version but the lightning port is software limited to 24-bit/48khz unless you are using Apple music or playing directly from a flac file.

I did end up getting qudelix 5k just for the fuckton of features, if I were to choose a cheap dongle I could do the meizu but aptx adaptive is truly something on latency. I wanted to be the fiio btr5 but there is not official support for mic inline in usb dac mode and thx onyx is just to expensive to justify.

Just bought a Drop + THX 789 what's next?
I'm on a 500-600 budget and really want to upgrade. Right now I'm running an SHP-9500/Steelseries Pro Wireless. I just purchased the THX 789 and I'm looking to purchase a Dac+Headphone combo that would work well with the 789. Any recommendations in the 500-600 range? Thanks

Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!

Drop x Panda buzzing noise
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?

Can someone from customer support please reach out.
I purchased an R5 Saber edition, and the unit lasted about a week before it died on me. Someone named Haley said it would take a few days for her to reach out to someone to see if there are any troubleshooting tips. That was on Sept 18th, and I still have not gotten a response back. I sent another email asking for a refund because this is stressing me out that after spending $400 dollars no one from customer support is responding.

I would love a custom Koss build for sale. PortaPro X headband, KSC75x drivers and black Yaxi earpads.
I know I can make this myself, but I would happily order a pair. Throw in MMCX connectors on the drivers, and who could say no to such an awesome creation?
