This is not my personal DAP, as part of the X5 Preview tour, I only had the chance to evaluate the unit for 10 days to form my opinion.
As a preview model, there may be material differences compared to the commercial version - especially in the firmware.
The following review is based on my personal needs and tastes using equipment that I personally...” --Barra
“It's exactly what it says it is. I've tried some great looking, incredibly expensive DAPs - Honestly, in my opinion, a lot of them just add colouration, or EQ, or look pretty. Some of them do perform well, but fall short in many areas.
If you just want your music files to be reproduced exactly as they were mastered, with a line-out to pipe your music into any amplification you might...” --White Lotus
I love having something no one else has, that’s how I live my life making my own path. At least that’s how I feel when someone gawks at my J3. Every third person on earth has an IPOD, nothing to talk about, no fun, typical, average, yawn. Now the J3 is a special player in every aspect. When you pick up this shiny black glossy unit you expect a lead weight. ...” --ZIPUR
“What i really love about this player is its wide sound stage and sq. Every time i listen to it with my headphones or iem's, it blows me away. I spent hours of listening to it everyday.
It can drive many iems or headphones because of its built in amp. it has lots of power.
The battery can last 8-10 hours of continuous playback.
The build quality is solid and it...” --arjane
First of all I just want to put a caveat on the User Interface notion. At the end of the day, we are striving for sound and we all do crazy things to get the best, gripes about it are meaningless and in reality just spoils any review and we have all been spoiled by the iPod's UI, but an iPod sounds like a lump of clay, so with that done.
This is mind blowing, I have no idea why...” --Vespertine
When I first received my iBasso DX100, I think I lost a week or so really getting everything to work perfectly, even though I had solid advice from other headfiers (see the FAQ on the player), and even if I went straight to 1.2.7 firmware.
The main things that will take time is that you need to clean all your tags (I thought they were clean, but apparently not DX100 clean). Then...” --Mimouille
Sansa Clip+ player.
USB interconnect cable to charge via PC and to transfer data.
CD installer for Rhapsody.
It supports a lot of formats, even lossless formats.
Very simple interface, easy to understand.
Very good music playback. Definitely better than players around and even above it's price...” --koolkat

After reviewing many of HSA’s earbuds and IEMs lately, my thoughts turned toward buying a new DAP. My iPod Touch G4 (32 GB) had been getting pretty full, and I’d...” --Brooko
“FiiO X3 – Review
Posted on October 15, 2013by HeadMania
I have stressed for some time now on what phone I would get that has decent sound. At first I got the Galaxy S1 that had a Wolfson Dac and combined with Voodoo Sound I got decent playback.
Recently I got a Galaxy S4 knowing it has a Wolfson Dac too but I didn’t notice the...” --dan.gheorghe
I was given this as a Christmas present. It took ages until I got a peep out of it. Windows XP Service Pack 3 seems to act like rat poison on this. Utterly refuses to acknowledge the presence as an external drive.
Sure you can trawl Google and get any amount of fixes (generally involving holding down button combinations or worse), but they didn't work for me at all.
Download a new...” --David
