I always use otterbox/ UAG cases with phones and though very bulky, they have saved the phones hundreds of time from all types of drops/ falls/ missed catches etc.etc.
But can't seem to find anything for Xiaomi phones. I'm sure the case in the box won't last a week after my normal activities resume. Do I have any alternative?
eBay and amazon.de are my only options, ordered a bulky looking case from AliExpress, but that will probably never reach.

A purple bl03 is still available @ hifinage, if anyone here buys but genuinely doesn't like it ( after appropriate tip rolling +/- cable swap) I will happily pay 2.5k to that member.
You guys have helped me in so many ways over the years with gadgets (and helped saving a lot of money), this much I can do for a member.
But please be honest with your opinion about the IEM.
Wow!! Nova has so many features!! Absolutely insane, installed it on the Note lite also. This is the Android I love!!
Haha explore it. It's the ultimate launcher. One can customise almost everything. Icon size rows dock vs slide up down and many more.... Enjoy!!

Just when I thought, I'm done with headphones, that crazy ****er Zeos Pantera uploaded a video on Sivga Phoenix and didn't forget to send me an email with the buying link.
I'm trying to play with this awesome launcher to get over the craving.
NO MORE HEADPHONES, ONLY CHI-FI IEM

That guy barely talks bad about anything ... I can't take him seriously anymore.. specially when he was praised the swans m50w. He's good but still...
When it comes to IEMs I prefer to go with : bad guy good audio reviews. :)

and for speakers/monitors/dacs then : Audiosciencereview guy is right up there killing it.

True, he likes pretty much everything unless it's garbage ( Bose NC700, M50X etc.)
But he's not ignorant, knows a lot about audio engineering. We have become friends now.
DMS ( he works for a very high end headphone company) is another YouTuber friend.
These two thought I went mad after I gave away most of my headphones and trying to help build me another collection.
I like bad guy good audio review too, he has a very impressive collection of music.

PS Audio's 6k dac failed some tests. Speaker business is 80% marketting bs.

What's 6k DAC?
A new DAC launched by conman (that ps audio guy) priced at USD 6000.
You'd think a dac worth 6000 USD can't have flaws but time and again overpriced "audiophile" gear failed some basic tests

Wow!! That's really bad. His name is Paul. I bought their sprout, which is working perfectly fine with Focal Twin6.
What impressed me most that I was struggling with PSA's banana connectors and commented on Paul's channel. Within 48 hours two guys came to our house and set up the speakers perfectly!! They didn't charge anything.

That's sweet. I'm just saying his 6000 USD products failed some tests. At that price the product should have no flaws.

Reading through this thread I really got enticed to order them from Hifinage but stopped myself and read some reviews. I am someone who likes laid back sound for lengthy fatigue free listening and made a big mistake buying the CCA C16 earlier which cost around 5k. I use them rarely when I am in the mood to listen only for a small time and not feel like using my HD650. Since I listen to either Rock or old Hindi Music, I just love my HD650 and their tonality which allows me to listen for hours. Same was true for my Head Direct RE1s back jn the day and I just wished I would have taken very good care of them or that they came with removable cables.

Absolutely!! But didn't Paul fix those shortcomings?
They are usually hyperactive with fixing flaws, that's what made them hifi darlings ( unlike Woo Audio)

No clue about it. The fact that a 6000USD dac has flaws is totally unexpected and unacceptable lol! Hehe

I managed to soft brick the phone...Mi flash tool saved the phone. Anyway tried the Pixel experience ROM, it's good, but MiUi can be set up easily like that. No more custom ROM stupidity. Nothing much has changed. Relocked the bootloader, all good now.

For the audiophiles:

It's a misconception that single dynamic driver can't retrieve details..all Etys are single DD, they ( ER4P/S) blow away 95% of multi BA driver IEMs.
