4. Obviously there was quite a bit of recent discussion on mp3 distortion. With all of the complaints, I thought the issue would have been bad...like Michael Jackson bad. Turns out it's not even Chris Brown bad! I have mostly FLAC files in my X3 with a few mp3 files. Any noticeable decrease in quality compared to FLAC seems to be mostly from the fact that it's a lower quality file. Then again, I haven't done testing with classical music or anything like that. What I'm saying is that it may bother some people, but it's not going to bother everyone.
8. I'm including this because I know it's going give a few of you a good chuckle. The first time I listened to it, I stuck the earphone jack in the line out. lol I'm so used to the Cowon J3 so I was thinking it goes in the same spot. I already saw a few pictures from reviews so I knew there was a separate line out and headphone out. For some reason, I just completely forgot about that. It gave me a good jump when the audio blasted into my ears at high volume. It's like the duh moment you get when you hit your head against a ceiling. Here's a good life lesson, folks: make sure you're sticking it in the right hole. Otherwise, someone might get annoyed.
Best lines I read from reviews :D
