Worth a try?

How are they supposed to be tagged? What info should be there? Names? Tags? Folders?

Just make sure the basics are there such as artist, title, album etc.

You can also insert album art, try keeping to around 500x500.

Keep it simple and consistent across different albums/folders of music.

One thing I done for the X3 was to tidy up the actual filenames of my music because this is what the X3 actually displays when playing a song, eg. 1 - abcde

Is there any way to just get firmware update notifications without having to keep up on this high traffic thread?

Any benefit of having a consistent folder structure and fixing that with mp3 tagger at the same time? If so, how? Artist then another folder with Album?

 Yes, most people structure their songs that way: \Artist\Album\Songs. It makes it easier to browse and find an specific song you want.

 

 Fixing the tags help for displaying info on the screen (be it of a DAP or of your computer) or searching by the categories the X3 allows, such as Genre, Artists, Albums, etc.

My folders are arranged as follows:

One folder per full flac album
One folder for various flac singles
One folder for various mp3 singles

This setup works well for me.

I dont think you can create/arrange folders from within mp3tag though, just something you have to do in windows.

I'll ensure that I have my folders in order smily_headphones1.gif

But it seems can (I haven't tried it just yet) according to this quote and video:

We're looking at March for an X3 update.

If all your files can be read by mp3tag you can use this handy method of naming and sorting your files so that Browse Files on the X3 can work effectively as Genre->Artist->Album sorting:

Sorry that was not my intention. the question its more like: will the x3 could drive those high ohm headphones (Q701 i think its 62 ohm and dt990 its 250 ohm) or stay with the low 32 ohm line of headphones.

 

Im not clear about the specs of fiio its said 16mV @300ohm does that mean i would be hable to drive a 250 ohm, its that right?

for me .... i don't like using a full can with a portable player alone even the x3 

 

Q701 I read a review that said it needed high gain setting on x3. I was thinking to use them at the pc and the x3 as a dac.

Q701 I read a review that said it needed high gain setting on x3. I was thinking to use them at the pc and the x3 as a dac.

I use my X3 as PC USB DAC with Q701, HD650, Momentum and T50rp(modded of course), all fine with plenty of power left for me on low gain.

The X3 driving my bass mod Q701 is the most acceptable that I've heard these phones.

YMMV

 

P.S. It's not "16mV @300ohm" it's mW, (30mW @300Ω where I've read it, that's 3000mV( or 3Volts if you prefer) plenty for what you want)

using x3 as a DAC is a different story ... it will drive Q701 very  good

I listen to my DT880/250 at 1/3 volume level on high, and 1/2 volume level on low gain. So the X3 has plenty of power to drive those.

Thanks for the link. I am organised into Artist>album>track, but might change that for Genre>artist>album>track. I'll see how it all goes.
I am making sure they work as expected in another player so hopefully as the firmware increments it will play nicely on the x3. All my files play, so Its not that bad in truth. I am very happy sonically.

Looks like the main site has an RSS feed for news. I think all new firmware is announced as news.
