Wireless is a thing now. Who knew? LDAC, Sony MUC-M2BT, and Campfire Andromeda IEM

    Shure have a new RMCE-BT2 Cable-Dongle thing - See LINK.

    TL;DR - MMCX, in-line mic+remote, 10+Hrs battery, 'dedicated headphone amp' fwiw, aptx HD, NO LDAC, Bluetooth 5.0, not a neckbud but rather a pendant style (which I prefer). USD 150.

    Seems really interesting - I'm considering grabbing one for my Andros for out and about and short trips. I'm freelancing atm and on the phone a fuckton more than I used to be, while also working in cafes and such.

    I think it's a solid alternative BT solution - anyone else considering getting one?

    @bixby mentioned this in his writeup of day 1 at RMAF (see his blog: https://digitalaudiodirections.blogspot.com/ ). Seemed impressed by it in combination with SE 215.

    Edit: oops, no, the one mentioned on the blog is wired - see below.

    Thanks @Biodegraded, I'd seen that, but I believe @bixby was talking about the non-Bluetooth cable - i.e this one. While the wired amp/dac cable does seem great, I'm keen on the wireless BT adaptor :)

    I got some mmcx>3.5mm chifidapters for Clear to try a fancy 8-core 4.4mm cable I bought for my new ZX300. Figured wtf and plugged the MUC into Clear for a listen. It's surprisingly not bad sounding. Plenty of volume, though macrodynamics and bass heft are somewhat reduced.

    I wonder what kind of output stage the MUC has? I should try it with my FD-01's.

    Most music I listen to has fairly high levels. I only needed around 1/2 volume with Clear. Past 2/3 is very loud and starts to break up. I was trying for the "beep" you get when you've gone past the last available setting, but my ears couldn't take it. I think it was more the MUC distorting than the Clears
