World wide distribution is in a couple of weeks. Fiio said: next month.

Maybe Headsound.de can give you a precise date as they're the German importer

MP4 Nation mates. When will it happen?

post #3034 of 11910

Alright, I decided I want to cancel my pre order for X3. Does anyone know how to cancel a pre order from mp4nation?

SQ wise, Colorfly C3 seems to exceed the X3 in performance slightly. Also, C3 is significantly cheaper. I understand that the X3 has more driving power + better UI, but the cost is too much. C3 + C&C BH amplifier combo is a killer combination that works well for my needs.

serious, you believe everything you read don't you. Anyway, I hope you will be happy with your decision.

I cancelled my order as well. All you need to do is submit a ticket with their customer support. They will confirm that you in fact want to cancel your order and then they will refund you your money. There is a 5 day hold via PayPal, but that wasn't an issue for me.

How do you know this if you don't have the X3 ?

There were other issues too. A lot of people were complaining about bugs. Also, I didn't like that the X3 was heating up. Even my quad core tablet does not heat up. The 10 hour battery life is on the low end for me unfortunately. In addition, I didn't like hearing that the X3 is on the warm side of things. Enough that a member had to mod it to make it sound more like the C3? 

 

All in all, there were too many issues being thrown day in and day out with the player that made me decide not to get it. $200 for a buggy piece of hardware? No thanks. I'd rather get a $90 buggy hardware and save me some money lol.

A member who owns the X3 has stated this in terms of warmness vs clarity differences. I'd prefer clarity over warmness.

I'm trying to hold out from ordering but I want a dap with good clarity and a line out about this size. And the only players about this size, line out and higher end Sq is the x3 and dx50.

Also for 190 and m5 it looks pretty good.

Fiio X3 Dimensions: 55 X 109 X 16 (mm) (Taken from google)
Colorfly C3 Dimensions: 
80x50x10mm

 

Clarity: Colorfly supposedly wins this category by a small margin (if you mod the X3, if you don't mod it, then the C3 wins by a larger margin)

Size: Colorfly wins

Price: Colorfly wins

Line out: X3 wins

UI: X3 wins

Usability: Who wins this one?

post #3043 of 11910
I'd just use it with an amp. I just need a good dap with a line out. And not a ipod or fuze.
post #3044 of 11910

c3 seems to have ****ty shielding against smartphones so I stay with X3 on that one.

 

time will tell.

Im with you, I think im going to skip the Fiio x3 and get the c3 with a jds lab c5 amp. Im also tired of hearing that they will be out soon and yet no one has them except from ebay.
