Although I bet X7 will be out before those come out, but will be great if they keep supporting the X5 by that time to accomodate the bigger capacity

Thanks, this makes sense now.

Considering the money i would invest in additional SD cards, i will probably stick to buying a 240gb ipod 7G...

I found this, so I think I'm going to take the plunge. Even if it's fake, the website offers price back guarantee. Let me be the guinea pig and I'll try it out, I'll post back when I get it with results, and you guys can make fun of me if it turns out fake.

it is a scam. I posted that earlier in this thread.

I didn't mean to cause a fuss, just wanted to confirm my suspicions that it was fake.

This was discussed maybe 3 days ago. Repeating is something that already happens way too much in these threads wink.gif

+1000

 

I also appreciate Mikros 90 very much. For $100 area, imho, I don't think there will be any phones better than Mykros 90 (in term of detail, tonal balance, sound stage)

Listened the the mikros and it was everything I suspected. Mediocre at best.

OhOh the Martian Mafia will have a hit out on you for that one:D

Being a builder of high end stats and a few mediocre ones is no guarantee you will get a dynamic headphone right.

No worries mate ask anytime.

Two cool features I've discovered about the UI with X5.

1) If you hold/press the center button at anytime this brings up the volume selection which then lets you scroll your volume up/down using the click wheel similar to an iPod. (You do not need to use the tactile buttons on the side)
 

2) If you want to fast forward or rewind a track when doing so the music keeps playing until you choose your destination, where as other DAPs make that terrible skipping noise while fast forwarding or rewinding. X5 you just keep listening to music while it does this.

Little things I'm learning along the way. :p

I've been listening to Kryptic Minds testing for micro detail this evening. We're having quite the time in Australia FiiO X5 and myself.

A HUGE endorsement to this recommendation.

Those who do not give the Mikros 90 a try will probably regret it later.

One of the best--if not THE best--set of headphones I have ever heard to date.

The Mikros 90 will blow your mind.

Visit OUR thread sometime!

I have a question for those who have handled both the X3 and X5...

If you intended to use only the Coaxial Out (SPDIF), bypassing both the DAC and the amp, which would you buy, independent of price, and why?

Thanks!

Mike

I would still take the X5 for the extra storage.

Has anyone compared the X5 with the AK 120? I have the AK 120 and wondering about the difference in sound signatures.

I'm planning on getting the X5 but curious about the sound signature.

 

Any input would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!
