When I first got the device 2 months ago, I was really impressed. The build was solid. The glass felt classy. The metal frame felt sturdy. The buttons were tactile. The battery life was wonderful. It even came with a nice charging cable! This is where the good ends.
While the player feels like a premium device, it does not act like one. The player runs fine for the first couple weeks, but then slowly degrades. It now stutters and freezes, leaving me to kill Spotify and relaunch it every once in a while. The actual touchscreen is one of the old ones used in budget phones from a decade ago. It doesn't properly register your finger, and occasionally detects ghost taps. It will open the player in my pocket, sometimes skipping back and forth between songs.
Which brings me to the buttons. While they are satisfying to click, they are extremely sensitive. If something bumps your pocket, or there is anything else in your pocket, or if you bend down, or even move your leg, there is a good chance you will trigger a button. This has caused the player to skip forward, go backwards, max the volume all the way up, turn the volume all the way down, and sometimes pause the song I'm listening to, all while in my pocket. There is an option in the settings to deactivate buttons while the player is off, which I did. This works fine... until the power button gets bumped. Then you're back to square one. It also makes the controls more tedious to use. If you have to deactivate them, why have them?
I would return the device, but a stray pebble broke the glass back while I was trimming a lawn. Launched at my pocket, causing a crack. This crack grew over the next week, and then started falling apart. The battery is now exposed, and I'm going to resort to covering the back with duct tape. The glass back is very thin. While the player feels sturdy, it is actually very delicate.
I really wanted to love this device, but while it feels like a high quality product, it is slow, fragile, and cumbersome to use. It looks good, but fails to function as a basic music player. It sounds great, lasts forever, and looks fantastic, but can't properly play songs without something going awry. I wanted to get more into music with a nice music player, but I'll be sticking with my smartphone for now.
Excellent DAP for the price. Neutral, clear and detailed sound. Two useful output options: single ended 3.5 mm, and 4.4 mm, also serves as DAC and bi-directional bluetooth device using LDAc. To improve screen sensitivity and bluetooth stability, especially when connected through UAT, which requires both devices be really close to each other, and preferably been of the same brand, I tested with Hiby W3 and SMSL SU 9.
Regarding the support provided by Linsoul team, simply 5 stars.
If you have the money, go for the R6 version.
I very much enjoyed dealing with Linsoul Audio. I needed a little support which they gave quickly and completely. Shipping was fast and I'm loving my HiBy R5S. I would do the whole thing all over again. No regrets.
