1) It crashes and freezes a lot. Actual UI is pretty good apart from crashes.

3) It doesnt sound any better than 2012 Ipod classic
4) It needs 4-6 hours to recharge
i also would like horizontal screen like ipod classic, because i cant readsong names in folder view - screen is too narrow.
64Gb card works withount any issue.

Doesn't sound any better than an iPod Classic? No way

1: delete the library database file, import everything again. this might help.

2: is it connected to anything when this occurs?

3: what headphones do you use?

4: yes, and you get around 10 hours of playback for that, i don't really see the problem with this.

Wow what a negative post. frown.gif

Clearly you're an iPod fanatic and probably will never appreciate any other DAPs as they are.

iPod is an iPod because it just does things like any other Apple product. Clearly you are used to it and deviating from that means you're in a new territory, you just have to accept that it isn't an iPod and will never be.

The X3 for a lot of people is the best budget DAP that's out right now. Speaking personally, it hasn't frozen or gone wrong for me once since I've owned it.

EDIT: @TrollDragon, dont mate... the C3 was a truly painful experience for me in terms of interface and user friendliness. The X3 is like an iPod Nano compared to the C3 lol. Pretty sure if someone gave him the C3 he'd ask whether its a calculator.

I wouldn't put it quite that way myself redface.gif Admittedly the X3 firmware has some flaws, most people are lucky enough not to run into them but we will work hard to perfect it for everybody smily_headphones1.gif

One quick question. Can X3 drive Audio Technica ATH-W5000?

 

70% vocal, 30% standard + contemporary jazz

If it's impedance is 300ohms or less the X3 should be able to drive it to adequate volume levels, but sometimes getting the best performance from a set of cans isn't just about power. The ATH's may or may not benefit from an external amplifier when used with the X3.

I have the ATH-AD900X (38 ohms) and the ATH-ESW9 (42 ohms) and it drives them just fine.  In fact most of my listening is done at 26 (out of 60) so I'd assume the ATH-W5000 (40 ohms) would work just fine with the X3.

 

I'm not a head-fi guru, but since the W5000 has a sensitivity of 102 dB/mW versus the 103 dB/mW of the ESW9 it should get to the same loudness.  I'm sure somebody else will pipe in and confirm or deny that.

iPod can't be a DAC, X3 can be a DAC. IMO, this feature is similar to Silencer ulti in Dota 2, silence other DAP in my usage.:p  Laptop soundcard sucks, no worries. Plug in your X3.

 

Luckily I never face any crash issue with my unit, except manufacturing defect.

Is the hold button switched on ? If so, try switch it off.

That looks awesome, thanks a lot, must have missed that post before. The exposed MicroSD slot looks to be the biggest downside with the case, but I'm definitely thinking about ordering one anyway, looks a lot better than the silicon case. Also the buttons are exposed, so that you are getting proper feedback from which buttons you are pressing... which the lack thereof was the biggest downside with using the silicon case, it feels like I'm loosing the feedback when pressing buttons, they are intuitive enough without the case, but with it on, I find myself fumbling somewhat.

Regarding renaming/retagging files to ensure that I don't suffer from any crash/hang (I've had it hang on me one time, thus the reason for considering this procedure), what program would people recommend? I'm thinking about using mp3tagger, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to change, and how I'm supposed to change it. Any guide, post or video you could recommend for me?
post #8084 of 13073
There is a "Hold" switch on the side of the X3. Is it on or off ?

Haha I see past those flaws mate, because I'm mainly interested in the sound quality coming out of any DAP and the X3 has lots of that sweet sounding goodness.

 

Any Apple product with a Cirrus chip is a big fail if you ask me, and thats pretty much most of them.

Yeah its the hold button.

 

Dont worry about it mate, I sat at my office desk scratching my head for few minutes as well. Wondering why I couldn't select the language lol
