Mine came with FW 2.1 installed.

 

Also thats a clear case, same as I and everyone else gets included with the X3.

Cheers for the clarification James!

 

So far no issues at all, gapless working as it should and so are the file tags. :atsmile:

Nice, I also received mine with FW 2.1, thus no need to upgrade / change it smily_headphones1.gif?

Also I can't seem to load your website, any issues there?

As far as I am aware it's the latest firmware at the moment.

Sweet, then I'll just add some music and then it's probably time to catch a buss, perfect time of arrival today smily_headphones1.gif. I've tried mine thus far with my Logitech UE6000 and it sounds great smily_headphones1.gif.

Yeah I've been using mine with Zero Audio Carbo Tenore and JVC HA-S680, both sound awesome using FLAC audio. With the Carbo Tenore though I EQ the bass to +5 as they sound a bit bright but thats mostly down to the IEM itself.

it is kinda different sound signature from i pod .....more warm ....more separation and bigger sound ... slightly more detailed sound .... i guess ipod have wider sound stage ....more resolution ( or it is a forward sound that gives the illusion of more detail ?? i don't know !! ) .... all in all it is very interesting player with beautiful sound 

beautiful bass - slight laid back mids - soft non fatiguing treble ...........does this player benefits from burning in ? or it will be just brain burning out ?

* those impressions with : Shure SE535

Yeah same here, MP3 didin't sound too good to me either. I posted a couple of pages ago what I thought of an MP3 playing on the X3.

 

This player is definitely made for LOSSLESS formats. Also, high quality M4A/AAC encoded files sound pretty damn good too!

dBpowerAMP compares your rip with a database of rips of the same album and lets you know if you might have a problem rip. Not every album is on there of course but a majority of my 500 + rips have been. It's saved me of finding out later of a flaw when I finally get around to listening to it. Nice reature besides the other things it does.

Agreed. Discovered dBpowerAMP years ago and never looked back.

Now question is, how much it will drain my battery compared to more lossy files. Can i tell how much my battery will stand by the volume? When listening 96/24 flac i had to add another 5-7 points in order to get on same level.
Also i would like to ask one more thing. How i should charge battery in order to prolong its life as much as possible? I read, that you dont have to discharge this type of acumulator completely. Is that true? Also cant i harm it if i will connect it just for a short time without charging it to full?
You can charge it whenever you like. It's all based on full charge cycles. Most batteries are rated at 300 to 400 empty to full charges. So if you charge it at 50% that is a half cycle. Don't let it go to 0 and it's best to charge it at 30% or higher. Once a month let it go down to 10 - 20% and let it do a full charge with it turned off. (I don't know if you can use it while charging) This is about the best you can do to insure long battery life. Oh, if it doesn't shut off when fully charged make sure you remove it. Many people ruin their phones batteries by leaving them on charge at night when they sleep without an auto off on their phone.
