Hi,
Anyone got a problem with the 2.5mm connection? After using it for a year, the connection is loose and I can only hear from the left channel. It's sad because the sound from the 2.5mm balanced is far better than from 3.5. Where can can I get this serviced if I bought it here? I contacted Aune directly but there was no response..
Selling my Aune M1s here if anyone is interested in getting one.

It sounds amazing, especially through balanced output. Interface is clunky, firmware is very raw, does not see anything except FAT32. Still, it worth every dime i spent on it.

Is the stock cable a balanced 3.5? TRRS I believe they are called 4 ringed? or a standard stereo 3 ringed for mic?
I think it is possible to get balanced cable for HD6XX (I ordered the phones). I got cable (custom made, 2.5) for HE-350 and it works perfect. I will get balanced for HD6XX when they will arrive too. I also have X3 and installed RockBox on it - it is double start now and highly recomended.
I got this just the other day (independently, not via Massdrop). Some first impressions without audiophile catch phrases.
Coming from a Fiio X1, this OS is clunky. Can only browse by folder. That is not how I sort my music. I keep one master file, with subfiles for each album. The X1 could sort in numerous ways, but grouping by artist has always been my go to. Having (6) Mare Cognitum folders (one for each album) makes browsing tedious. Add the fact that it is button click versus a scroll wheel and you are hitting that button often. At least it has a "page down button" to make it a bit faster, but not as fast as grouping by artist.
Other minor things like not remembering your browsing location if you back up or go into the track are a nuisance, but would be less so if browsing weren't so tedious. Also, not even a basic cover art display?
I'm really they fix that with firmware (I'm on the newest 1.06) because this thing sounds amazing. I "splurged" on some KZ ZS5 quad driver buds and a 2.5mm balanced cable for them. The KZ's with the stock cable really made me smile with the X1, especially for the 35 smackers they cost. When paired with the balanced out on the Aune, I didn't want to stop listening.
While the Fiio sounded great to me, this sounded more greater (intentional). The sound was fuller, more full of life. Bass had punch, not boom. Being a metal fan, that's right up my alley.
I'd recommend this based on the sound. If you are nuts about your OS, you will more than likely feel this device is lacking.

Which generation fiio x1 do/did you have?

1st I believe. I still have it. It willbemy desktop unit since I have the line out dock for it.
God bless whoever put music on this before taking pics of it. Next time I'm around I'll buy said person a beer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ch6BMsGwkpY
A good DAP, although $200 is a little higher(10%-25%) than its original price in China. It is pretty competitive on the price range. It has balanced output which is pretty rare for a $200 DAP. The operating system is simple and kind of like sony zx100. The sound is at about $400 with the balanced output in my mind. There are still some flaws though. Since it uses portable device chip ESS9018k2m, the details of the sound is worse than DAPs with desktop chip like ESS9018s. This disadvantage is more obvious when you use the line out to connect an amp. So if you are looking for a small, easy to use DAP with a good battery life to drive IEMs(both single end and balanced) only, it is a good option and pretty competitive. And if you want to use an amp, it is not that competitive. Also this DAP doesn't have functions like coax out, optical out and bluetooth. So considering all these factors, I think M1S is a good DAP really focusing on the portable use with IEM.

how does aune m1s compare to cayin n3 ?
ikudo
I didn't try Cayin N3 before. From reviews I think M1s will have advantage for the sound. But N3 has full functions like a flagship DAP. It supports two way bluetooth input and output(supports Aptx), two way USB input and output, USB OTG, SPDIF output with DOP, and line out. M1s only supports line out. So I think it depends on how you are going to use the DAP.
Sounds like some buyers have received their purchase. How long does it take to ship?

About six week from the date the drop ended, but I'm in Canada. Seems like the American's got it a week earlier.
This is probably a silly question, but I'm a newbie when it comes to Tune and DAPs (and a lot of other music technology!). Can you download podcasts to this device or its it strictly for music? I currently have an Apple iPod shuffle, but find it too small and hard to navigate through music and podcasts.
northerngentleman
Not on this one, but there are DAPs that use the Android OS and you can download apps from the Google Play store.
DanLe
Thanks very much for the quick reply. I was tempted to go for the drop, so good thing I asked and even better you had the answer! Thanks, again.
Got mine, barely started testing...
I can't get it to recognize my playlists. Anyone come across this issue?
Mrjosh1138
Make sure your micro SD card is formatted to FAT 32 or exFAT.   It didn't read my TF formatted in NFTS.
Mrjosh1138
I didn't get it to recognize my playlists either, maybe it just isn't possible?
Anyone know how this compares to the Sony NW-A35?

I don't have this problem. I just bought mine half a month ago. Maybe they improved it. I think you can send a email to the company.
Secushel
Wow.  Thanks for the quick reply.  It isn't a loud click, but more a mild little "bump" right before the next song kicks in.  Not horrible, but not something that I am not used to.   I'll send the company an email to see whether this is just a problem for me or to see if they have suggestions. 
so this or the cayin n3??
mastershake
aune m1s is better than my hidizs ap100. ap100 better than my shanling m2s. shanling m2s plays in the similar league with n3. so m1s is better :)
i tested m1s and they have nice energetic sound. treble is little elevated.
I'm sure that this is a great audio player, as are the other ones that Massdrop has, but looking at the dimensions it would not be what I call portable. It's significantly bigger and heavier than my cell phone. Which is big enough that it really doesn't easily fit in my pocket. I'd like to see more DAPs that are good for exercising, or just walking around with. Sure I could get an iPOD and I got the Fiio M3 when it dropped. But the iPOD hasn't been updated in years, I loathe iTunes and the PC interface and the M3 has a terrible screen and a clunky player navigation system. Oh and did I mention the plastic screen got scratched to hell and back within about 2 days. Please Massdrop, could you drop a DAP that's actually, y'know PORTABLE?!

Best of luck in your DAP search!
micahjrose
Thanks! Mind you I really shouldn't be complaining - 20 years ago I was carrying a Walkman around in my pocket. A lot larger than anything these days. Admittedly I carry so much in my pockets that I have a problem looking a bit like a chipmunk ...
Is there a manufacturer warranty?
This is the drop I was waiting for ! too bad I am currently broke !!
It could be my old eyes, but what is the storage capacity of this device?
bob.corrigan
Looks like there is a Micro-SD card slot on the top that supports up to a 128 GB(256GB with a firmware update, apparently) card, and no internal storage.
SkitTheCrit
Thanks - that would be an excellent fact to note in the description :)
Cheers!
Got my shipping details! Woohoo!
Same here no update on shipment. Already contacted help center. But very slow on response and waiting for reply.
Massdrop, we're 11 days overdue for shipping or drop updates. What's going on? I'm going to start looking into a chargeback if there's no drop updates by the two week mark.
Do we need to contact police for fraudulent sales?
Contacted massdrop help, no definite answer, just assurance - "www" email. I wish they would give some idea what is going on:(
@massdrop what is the status of this drop?
Massdrop, any data on the device shipping ?
anyone know if this has FM radio google is not helping?
amisty
It does not
Hi, I understand that it works very well with IEMs but what about fullsize headphones like the AKG K7XX? I have a pair of these coming my way in a couple of months and would love to hear any experience with that combination. Thanks. BR Per (Denmark)

"Power" isn't just about the nominal impedance... you need to take into account five things when determining if a device has "enough" power for any given headphone: 1) Nominal impedance of the headphone 2) Sensitivity of the headphone 3) Impedance curve of the headphone (a 150 ohm headphone can spike to 400+ at certain frequencies) 4) Source output at nominal impedance and max curve value 5) Your listening habits
Low imp, low sensitivity will be damn hard to drive from a portable source due to current needs High imp, low sensitivity will be damn hard to drive from a portable source due to voltage needs
IEM's typically require very little power compared to full size headphones, just because it ran your 150 ohm iem's doesn't mean it will drive the K7xx. Some mobile chips drop off very swiftly after 32 ohms and the K7xx is middle of the pack on efficiency.
ElectronicVices
150ohm and 89 sensitivity IEMs (RHA CL1). It should be totally fine. The K7xx has 62ohm and 105 sensitivity. I stand by my original statement. The K7xx should be fine on the Aune M1s.

Nice link. No AP100 mentioned! :'(

I should have added it I think the hifiman HM-650 is over kill when you on a budget. The cayin N3 and Shanling offer more for the price. eg bluetooth and touchscreen.
Anyone know if it supports AIFF?? Thanks
Seimi1
Yes. I have just bought this DAP and I am using it with my AIFF files without any problem.
Is there any left / right volume control function on this DAP?

The term you're looking for is Balance I believe.
moonpussy
You're right. I mean balance adjustment.
sounds like this is better than XDuoo X10? whats the word with the community? its a choice between the 2!

M1s is much better
Anyone know if the USB port does digital out. I'm wondering whether I could put this into a Chord Mojo.
replicnt6
It doesnt
Let me understand, does this player have 2 headphone connectors ?

And how it is in comparison to FIIO players ?
Nick1986
FiiO players have better OS. This kicks the crap out of them on sound quality. It isn't close. If you are a EQ tweaker you won't want this, though.
