Question DAC Player broken or just the IEM wire? Need help finding out


Apr 14, 2015
I guess to start this post is that I have a few DAC players. One is a Hidizs AP80 Pro and the other is a Hiby R3 Pro Saber. Both players have a 3.5mm port and a 2.5mm balanced port. Recently on my Hidizs player, the left IEM starts to have issues and was wondering if it was the cable. I went to check on my newer Hiby R3 Pro Saber and no audio was coming through at all now in either the left or right IEM. When i disconnected the IEMs, the device was still detecting something in the 2.5mm balanced port and won't detect any other IEM's in the 3.5mm port.

Has this happened to anyone else before? Is the balanced cable bad or did I just up both my DAC players?

Also I should mention that the IEM's connected to a 3.5mm cable work fine in my phone and tablet, so it has to be the 2.5mm cord or the DAC Players
