Can someone make the sound quality comparison between Fiio X3 vs Colorfly C3 + BH amplifier?

 

Which has better sound stage (wider & 3D imaging), separation (clear), detail+rich  and  bass (extended deep )?

Usually. It was worse off with my iPod 5 and 5.5, I just didn't care because I still can go over one whole day at work before I charge it.

I can get over 20 hours with my 5.5. Not bad considering from the factory they were rated around 14 or 15. smile.gif

Mine was around twelve to fourteen on iTunes, around ten hours on Rockbox. I wasn't listening in the office from the time I went in til I left, btw - but basically if I went in today with a full battery, I'd recharge it tomorrow while at work or even after. It actually loses about 2% battery for every three hours switched off; iTunes loses only 1% for around six hours switched off.

 

In any case, for me at least the X3 wouldn't be doing any worse than this that I'd notice biggrin.gif

Okay, there is a gap between tracks when using the file browser. But how big is it? Comparable to other DAPs in this price section?

one question need help, 

 

We are testing AIFF format, it can play now, but the question is , we can use foobar change sound track to 24bit AIFF format, but iTune can only change to 16Bit. so I guess most people are using the 16bit AIFF music.

 

sorry, AIFF is not popular in China

I think it will be useful if the X3 will support AIFF 24bit, because Apple may in the future add 24bit Support Click to iTunes, and FiiO X3 will already support this format!

I need to ask something, when you say "Tag your music, people!" you mean that an album propely tagged in iTunes 11.0.4 (iTunes Music -> Artist -> Album -> Tracks) with your directory that looks like this...

 

 

... It won't be showing as propely sorted/tagged on X3? :0

FiiO X3 as for me just mp3 player with good SQ. Most will use it for flac/mp3/ape.

I have a feeling that people will want 24 bit, I know I want it (though I don't really know why :D ) having it will be good IMO... and it certainly won't hurt anything...

I think it depends on what your target market is. If it's the niche market of head-fi style audiophiles, you could certainly appeal to a small percentage of them with even more robust file format support beyond what you have already. Although I suspect you have enough file support to capture that market already even if 24bit AIFF is not added.

If your goal is to eventually tap into the mainstream market of consumers who buy iPods and Sony Walkmans, I would think that your first major firmware revision release after any bug updates would (1) focus a lot on any possible UI usability improvements, and then (2) implement more popular features such as a 10 band graphical EQ (or some PEQ settings) or replaygain implementation. The mainstream market has changed a lot in the last five years because of smart phones which have media players with very robust feature implementation, increasing expectations from consumers.

just want to make sure that there are 24bit AIFF exited and of course we will try out best to support as many format as we can. and X3 maybe the DAP which support the most music format ( excepted DAP which based on Android phone and them can installed an APP )
