Yes but certain sound characteristics works well that plays along with the sound signature of the X3. I noticed phones that are cooler in sound will mesh well with the player as well. CKN70 for example sounds really nice on the player.  Detailed phones using BAs, carbon nanotubes or titanium drivers.. Phones like the HA-S500 with good detail works well even with the big bass. GR07 BE edition is another example.  And the VSD1 is not too colored to the point where it will sound off and those have a solid amount of detail too which adds to how it plays.. Phones with a V signature also works well with the X3 because the full deep mids of the dap will pull some of them mids forward a touch giving some balance to a V signature phone.

 

I suspect the M50 to work pretty well with the X3 for example.. Both Daps will sound nice on all types of sound after all if they made the players to only sound nice for certain phones and not others that would not make for selling too many of them. The DX50 sounds fantastic using neutral phones as well and detail guys will prefer that but they truly shine with phones with fuller forward sound and a bigger bass end. It off sets the players sound characteristics and adds musicality and better synergy. The worst synergy of the X3 is when you have a forward sounding phone with big bass AKA CKS1000...Can get a bit too hot and heavy..Which in this case is not a good thing.

 

To get the best synergy however the X3 absolutely shines on a more neutralish type sound. S2/ GR07/ RE-400.. I got confirmation from several X3 owners on the X3 thread noticing the same effect. Monitor type earphones and headphones absolutely brings the musical qualities of the player out in full force..

Already on the way to me. 

 

The DN-1K should land Monday or Tuesday.

Hopefully the R3 will land soon. But honestly I don't know how long they will stay. Cardas Ear Speaker, AS-2, V6 and M200 (S2 on the go) have me wrapped up as far as earphones go. For the first time in a long time I'm more than satisfied!!

Well, thanks. I guess I'll have to think about it some more. I really like the dx50's look and the premise of a neutral source but going with all those bugs reported all the time and the uncertainty whether ibasso will be able to fix all of them kinda puts me off. I see people reporting issues with 24/192 playback on dx50 and that might be a deal breaker for me coz I'm dying to listen to all my 24/192 music without converting it - especially the 24/192 Metallica vinyl rips. 

I might try to play the patience game and see if I can stop myself from buying a new DAP until the X5 is out. 
And that MA750's packaging looks pretty, I'll be waiting for impressions.

Ya there are way more bugs on the DX50. Mine freezes whenever I turn the player on and start to play music. I am gonna try n reload the new firmware. With the new firmware it seems to fix some issues while introducing others. They sound nice but they have a ways to go before they iron out all the bugs.

 

I have had zero issues with the X3 since I got it. No freeze nothing.

you should've done so from the very start :D

I'm on latest firmware and encountered zero problems whatsoever... just make sure to read the readme file and update according to it...

 

oh, and take out the sd card before doing all that

Ya I have the new firmware on it but ever since I am getting freezes. It seems to have fixed itself as It isn't doing it anymore so I will just use it till a newer firmware comes out.

Yeah, they are pretty sweet, especially in comparison to the Japanese remasters that I have, which are so loud and compressed.

Got my $5 Koss today.

They are what you might expect for $5. They come with very useable clear wide bore tips that are kinda firm. They will be worth keeping to try on other phones. Thin cable that is shiny and more plastic in feel. Close to the 3580 and CLR100 cable in appearance(very budget). Small straight plug and Y. The housing and strains are quite sturdy and nice. The fit is quite easy, very stable, comfy for me. The housings are pretty big and fill your ears and they don't seem to have vent holes so they isolate quite well.

 

They sound quite thick but in an enjoyable way. A nice size stage with the 13mm drivers and some room behind them in the housing and also the wide bore tips. The way that seems like burn-in will improve them. I'll see how they stack up to my CKP200 when they have enough hours on them. Not expecting much more than a good beater for the price.

 

At the $5 total cost the lifetime warranty is not in play since it costs more to replace them then just buying another if you happen to like them and wanted another pair.

 

Still a little fun to slum it in the ultra budget are once in a while and I may still try and mod them if possible. They won't turn out as good as the CLR100 but fun to try. Need to lay off my SA7 Ltd. for a while as well then get fresh ears on these Koss. My R3 also showed up, and while very beefy looking, they didn't survive the trip. May still get another pair if any more early production samples are left. Oh well.

Did you rip them yourself? I've been trying to find some I can purchase with no luck.

 

On a side not if anyone can find me Avenged Sevenfold vinyl rips I will love you forever ;)

No, I lack the quality equipment needed and even with the proper equipment it can be tricky, but I do know where to get stuff like that  :wink_face: . And yeah, Avenged Sevenfold in 24/192 vinyl rips too.

:p
