I'm afraid price/performance ratio doesn't work that way/simple.

If you do this with headphones as well, i'm sure your wallet will be happy.

But it doesnt work that way either with headphones,  for example the hd650 is not one third as good as the hd800.  Doesny neccesarily mean that hd 800 is an overpriced u  worthy for its price product

Look I might just stick with iphone 4 > cks99 and be done.  I MIGHT spend up to $200 if I'm not happy with just iphone.  I don't have my phones yet but there in the mail.  I admit the idea of an all in one amp/dac/player is cool, but I don't want to spend $400 for it...but if the x5 is MUCH better then I couldn't resist.  

 

Edit: I'm in audio nirvana with my xonar stx and 49990 op amps and WS99...so I'm basing what I would spend off of that.

Fiio targets it's products so the price/performance ratio is a good one for the consumer.  Anyone looking to pay too much money has a plethora of other devices available from other manufacturers who will be happy to give you less for more.

THIS.

what we do is provide one more option to customers, and we believe that our products can satisfy someone in this world. so far we are so lucky because there are so many people love music and have the same taste as our.

 

for sound quality, it is hard to be quantized. and that is the reason why there are so many audio brands and not like the world of PC, smartphone which you can judge the performance by some specification and the Soc, Ram, Rom and displayer,

Subbed.

Well, since X5/X3 = 1.666, I think you might be a little disappointed.

Infallible logic there.

What?

I got my cks99 in today, and ran it through my iphone. They sound plenty loud and amazing. The only thing possibly lacking is bass. I would love to be able to boost the bass. Maybe an x3 or x5 would solve. Short test though and need to try better quality audio to know.

The sound quality won't be double because math.

Yeah. It's kind of like the Sound Levels of decibels. 40 dbz from an increase of 20 dbz, doesn't necessarily mean it's 2x louder.

I understand that if you pay twice as much for something it doesn't have to be twice as good.
But how does an increase of 100% in dB not make it twice as loud?
