    What is a good budget DAP around $100? I just want a dedicated DAP that sounds better than my current phone. I have shortlisted 4 DAPs - Fiio M3 Pro, Fiio M7, Shanling Q1, Hiby R2, and LG V20. Are there any other DAPs I should consider?

    I heard there are little, if any, sound differences between various DAPs at this price. Is that true? If that is the case, Fiio M7 seems to be the best option as it has the best battery life. I will be only using it to drive my easy-to-drive IEMs and Koss KPH30i.

    I'm pleased with my Q1. It's warm, relatively spacious, punchy, small and the battery goes forever.

    @Bill-P would you mind sharing your thoughts with the NW-A105? I'd be really interested in your insight as you've used both the ZX300 and the TOTLs. I wish I could have edited the previous post to properly tag but for some reason it does not let me.
    You've mentioned it a while back and I've been curious how they'd compare.
