Man, that's awesome. Seems pretty much perfect. Finally some audiophile and wallet friendly DAP. 1 thing I did not like, Digital Music Player statement. I prefer Digital Audio Player (DAP) honestly, but let it be the only thing I did not like about it smily_headphones1.gif

Looks bigger than I thought. (yeah that's what she said blabla)

Still should be more portable than most DAC+Amp combos.

Does X3 comes with any IEM as a package?
post #379 of 17129
Are you asking if they will include the Shures and Westons they usually have at their booths and the X3 booths included? biggrin.gif

Would be nice.

Kidding

I'd be fine with no included earphones to keep costs down. I think most people looking to buy the X3 would already have headphones, IEMs, or earbuds.

+1, even they bundled one with the X3, I probably won't use that anyway

Same here. No need to include any type of earphone.

Haha, I love how some random person says "Do they come with earphones?" And that automatically becomes something considered by FiiO. Oh how the world turns...

Eh? Not all included stuff is bad, i know the hisound novas came with paa1 pro which is decent
post #385 of 17129

We will pay for every last thing that's included.

 

I don't want to pay for a "decent" IEM.

Do you think you can find FruitBrand Earbuds lovers in here? Everybody has their own taste and gear pack. All we need is a DAP as long as this player concerned. Same for Hisound too. Doesn't matter how decent/bad/good they are. What we are interesting is only the DAP. Anything included means the price goes higher for people who will not even put these things in their ears.

+1. Nobody wants to pay for useless accesories. How many people will use these things anyway.

not the earbuds, but the earpods , I actually remember they get a decent review by some members in here.

I do also believe that 95% of potential X3 buyers wouldn't use the standard earbuds, thus a majority probably wouldn't mind if it came without.  On the other hand, the usual earbuds that normally come with popular portable devices ain't worth more than two dollars... so, coming back to the X3, I don't believe it would make a big diference pricewise.
 

post #389 of 17129

Why would anyone buy a high-ish spec DAP and want budget earbuds to come bundled with it? I certainly don't, even if it didn't increase the price... I've accumulated more than enough junk on top of my wardrobe already thanks. ;)

The X3 looks nice and reminds me a bit of the Toshiba GigaBeat F series!

 

Since the X3 is aimed at a more selective audience that carefully chooses what it buys, I hope they don't include any earbuds/IEM's. We can buy those ourselves and that should make the price a bit lower.

If there is a successor to the X3, will it be named X5? FiiO likes to stick to uneven numbers, but it would feel a bit strange with a FiiO X5 considering the classic Cowon X5 DAP...
