Pros: Great for flat sound lovers, durable, multi-functional

Cons: Might sound boring to some, lacks driving power

Conclusion

All I can say is the X5 are for listeners who are purists to their music taste. They will demand everything is flat, so they can hear the characteristics of a mastering, but for average users, this might not be a great choice, and psychologically will make you feel that you have just wasted your money on something that dull. So, better be damm sure that flat music is what you are after, or not regrets might influence you.
 
At the meantime, I will stick to my Clip+ until the next big thing comes along.

"Might sound boring to some" Thats me hehehe, i like my Treble not to be Flat :< just sparkling, extended and fun, bright if possible :P 
Linking to your own personal blog instead of posting a full review on head-fi (which afforded you the opportunity to try the X5 in the first place)? I don't know if that is what Fiio had in mind......
What about equalizing?
@AManAnd88Keys I personally dont like to do EQ of any sorts, to know what are the acutal sounds of the hardware, not my PC, not my portable.
