Its just easier to buy another one instead of waiting an age for a freebie IMO. They are cheap enough anyways.

Of course, but if you need other accessories replaced as well. Its not a bad alternative.

They dont really advertise the policy and stamp it on every product smily_headphones1.gif

I've got one coming and I'm wondering how I will protect it. I read on many sites that the leather case is really badly made and people should avoid it at all costs! The only other thing I could find is this:

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/X3-Digital-Player-Silicon-Case-BLACK/dp/B00EYCP5K0

 

EDIT: On second thought, I'm actually thinking of getting the blue one from here:

I just found this:

 

http://tuff-luv.com/faux-leather-case-belt-clip-for-fioo-x3-walkman-screen-protector-black.html

 

Looks interesting...

That looks nice, although they spelt FiiO wrong. No wonder I couldn't find it while doing my search earlier.

 

Still the blue silicone case tickles my fancy more, especially considering its only £2.99 on AMP3 at the moment.

I ordered the tuff love pleather case. Don't know if it'll be any good, but I'll take one for the team :)

Got a 10% off for being a discount whore on social media. And as shipping was free, I ended up paying £13,49 (€16,90).

 

I'll let you guys know if it is any good once it gets here...

I've sent them a message reporting the incorrect spelling. One should not have to scroll through 34gazillion results on Google image search to find a case...

Ah so you went for it then. Let us know what it's like when you get it.

 

Btw, its also available on Amazon UK:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tuff-Luv-Leather-cover-Screen-Protector/dp/B00HHAYWX2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389194957&sr=8-1&keywords=fioo+x3+case

 

As well as eBay for £9.74!! Search Fioo X3 case ;)

 

I'm thinking of going for it too at that price! :D

Haha! They have used the word 'faux' a lot more than 'Fiio'.....

 

That is a pretty neat case though!

I saw it on amazon as well, but on amazon it said £1.99 UK Shipping and the estimate for EU shipping was £4.99, so quite a bit more expensive. The £9.74 on ebay has free shipping to the UK, but £3.99 shipping to EU, so that would make £13,73... So with the discount and the free shipping through their own site I saved a whopping £0,24 :)

Ha yeah they really need to change that!

 

As far as I can tell there are only 3 cases available for the FiiO X3 at the moment.

 

The standard cheapie silicone crap, the official crappy FiiO faux leather case and apparently the amazingly made Tuff-Luv faux leather case. Which I shall be buying shortly off eBay!

 

The 3rd one seems like the one to go for at the moment. Its swag!!

It converts to 50 Singaporean cents... which means I can get a sweet (not a pack of it)! Not bad :gs1000smile:

I spent several weeks with Fiio support going over some of the issues that you are having and several of my X3`s own issues and they finally told me to send it back and i would get a new X3, so i will see if the new X3 is any better as Fiio support told me that the related issues were not normal.  I think many here are living with devices that ARE NOT operating correctly.

 

I've had the X3 for just over 2 weeks now, and using the thing gets more frustrating every day. Not once have I used the device that it did not lock up (buttons unresponsive), freeze up completely (stop playing and become unresponsive) skip halfway through a track, or exhibit some other bad behavior.

 

FiiO support has been quick to respond to my request for help, but the replies I have received make all the same suggestions that get posted here: delete the database - turn off features (like gapless playback) etc. I've done these things and yet the performance of the device does NOT improve one bit. I regret buying this player, and as such, I have purchased an AK100 instead (should arrive today). Although I have read that the Astell & Kern device isn't perfect either, I don't see the abundance of comments about it behaving badly/erratically that I see about the FiiO device.
 

I can't help but wonder if I got a bad piece of hardware, but FiiO seems to be insisting that the problems are all about the firmware, and that the issues can be addressed through the software. I'm not convinced, since the proposed "fixes" haven't helped one bit. This is a DAP for people who like to fiddle, fuss and hack at things - not for someone (like me) who just wants to use the thing and not have to troubleshoot every time I use it.

Ah, yeah... that's kind of what I was implying. They are more familiar with FAUX than Fiio ;)

Well, in any case (no pun intended) it is over $22 in the US which still seems high to me. I think it will drop as time goes on and they do more distribution for X3 cases in North America.

I agree, i just want to enjoy and use the product as advertised, my days of fiddling are over. I just hope my new X3 is better.
