Right there with you Zach, got the H200s a few days before the X3. I like them better than my VSonic GR07s and they're right on par with my reshelled TF10s. Like you said, I think that the warm sonic quality of the X3 calms the sibilance of the H200 and works well with an already clean midrange and thick bass.

Did you post that because you'll be posting reviews about their synergy with the X3 later?

That's one interesting, albeit expensive IEM...

 I actually post on the right site fellas. Sorry. But the M200 and S2 have excellent synergy with the X3.

This thing seems to be getting cleaned up very quickly - now I'm not so sure I want the DX50 instead.

I have a lot of tracks on my SD and I have the same symptoms. If I wait long enough at the blank screen it does eventually give me a list of all the files. The X3 catalogue is very slow ATM. Hopefully they'll be some optimisations in the next release.

How does it sound compared to your C3/BH combo - is it an obvious upgrade or just a different sound signature?

and cover display ( the new firmware will allow you use any kind of cover files, like names as folder, cover, or song or embedded in the sound track ). 

 

I known the UI looks not so great, but we believe that X3 will become the best mp3 in the detail , for example, X3 only support cover which less than 1M and 1024*1024,

 

but in the future , it may support up to 2048*204

Man this is so refreshing to hear. I also own a Cowon Z2 which is connected to a FiiO E12 and the sheer quality of the X3 absolutely blows the Cowon Z2 away even with the amp. The FiiO E12 does vastly improve the sound of my Cowon Z2 but the FiiO X3 is a beast right out the box. I'm also glad to hear that you guys are continuing to work on the gapless playback. I do alot of mixes and complilations and I tend to tag each song from the album it originated from, so you can imagine my disbelief when I found out that gapless only worked with album view. Firmware 1.23 allowed me to properly use gapless even with file browser view but it seems to be broken again in 1.25 and 1.31. I'm currently listening to a three volume compilation that has over 200 songs per volume and every song is either blended to the next or has zero time inbetween tracks. I love the improvements in fw 1.31 but I resorted to going back to 1.23 until you guys possibly get the chance to iron out the gapless issues. I'm in no way complaining as I totally understand a couple of ways around the issue and the positives greatly outweigh the negatives as far as I'm concerned. Most importantly you guys provided me with a portable player that packs a wallop without the need of carrying around my Z2 and E12, which is almost equivalent to carry around two wd passport drives, on my hip. And most importantly you guys listen to us. I was sold since I first purchased the Kilimanjaro-E11, which then led me to the Mont Blanc-E12 and now I've stumbled onto something even better. The sound quality of the X3 + E12 alongside my SM3's, GR07's and Copper Turbines is simply plush to my ears. Once I put down the IEM's and bust out the big dogs it's warp 9 and better Scotty. :L3000:

I fixed my issue by formatting my 64 GB card to allocation size 32768 rather than 65536 . Now it works fine.
