I think the EQ is great on the FW 3.0 anyway so I don't use this.


This is the link with the volume mod.

 

Strange about your 3.21 opinion, it really shines with my Grado SR-80i

Thanks all for the love for my theme. However I'm going on a work strike until we finally get playlists, and they fix the artwork scaling;)

 

A big problem I'm having now is the darn x3 keeps "losing" the sd card. I'm listening to music, in the middle of a song it just quits playing and gives me "file not found" for every track on the card. Internal memory works fine. Even if I try to use the browser I'll get a "format unsupported" or something like that. Eject the card, reinsert and all is well for a short time. Had this prob with the past few versions. Running a test on my card to see if it ain't fubar (has to be my 64gb card too (Kingston BTW)), and using my other 32gb (sandisk) to see if it isn't a hardware problem.

Anybody else have a similar prob?

I have EXACTLY the same problem as you. Extremely annoying.

 

So, you're not alone :)

Your X3 must be a strange unit. For me, every firmware, starting with 3.0, has been much closer to the original sound of any file than any firmware before.

Same here, my X3 with 3.21b and SR-80i are having a torrid affair.

 

It's possible that the 2.14b might have had a bit more depth, but it was a troubled relationship.

When using my AKG K550s while traveling, I don't need to boost the bass quite as high.  I didn't use 3.2 as it just had too many other issues. I once tried 2.14b and it was far too quiet.

 

JH16 PRO.

 

BTW, I'm not talking about quantity, but *quality*.

want to try it... care to share the download link??

where is it available... couldn't find

 

You have to copy the fw into the micro SD, not the player's internal memory.

With regard to sound quality I am very pleased with 3.21.

I hear the same thing as FW214b. As do others, if you scroll back through this thread. On the other hand, you and others disagree and prefer 3.2 and onward.

It's a difference in preference and perspective. There's no need to be a jerk about it ("your X3 must be a strange unit").

I think the better the headphones, the more you notice the difference. For me, with my JH16 PRO, its an undoubtful evidence that 2.14b has much more fidelity.

I'm skeptical if I'm going to try Win10 this early. Far too many bugs I'd assume.
