I had been listening to it for the past 3 days and my impression on it as compared to my Sony X1060.
1) The background is more black.
2) More sublime detail was noticed.
3) The sound is quite balance, it's quite neutral in term of bass and high.
4) The power is not really enough, I need to increase my volume midway as compared to my X1060 at a quarter way.
I think this is the best DAP so far I got. Before that, used to own the Iriver H340, Iaudio I7 and X1060. The sound quality is really close to cd sound and I really love the size and compactness of this player. I usually put in my pocket and the good thing is u no need to take out and pause and can all be press outside due to the location of the button on the side.
It's true that the UI is a bit slack but it's still ok for me. The battery also can last quite long more than 10 hours.
This player if matched with a portable amp should be in heaven already no doubt it's really not a necessarity for earphone user but It's should bring out the additional juice from it.
