 Haven't heard that one. 
I guess I should state something important about my audio hobby which would completely change my perspective on things. Even though I'm into 'portable audio' none of my players leave the house or are used in real life outside environments. If it were the case DX90 battery life (without an exchange battery) would not only drive me up the wall, also be completey unacceptable. On the other hand from testing I'd be perfectly fine with X1, X3II, or DX50 (which is better battery...
