  • Changed the time to press the Power button for 2 seconds to turn off the device.
  • Fixed the issue where the device would fail to enter playing state when connected to computers/adapters through HFP, and thus led to unsuccessful audio output after entering standby mode.
  • Fixed the issue where voices could not be heard under phone calls when there was another call.
  • Fixed the issue where the EQ was invalid after certain operations under the USB DAC mode.
  • Other miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements.
