Unregulated PSUs would put out about 30% higher voltage than specified when lightly loaded and may be a hazard to the X5--although I remember it having overvoltage protection, better safe than sorry smily_headphones1.gif

10 years ago I earned my current custom title by doing something stupid with power supply units wink.gif

 

Hahaha I guess I'll be sticking with Samsung's 5V2A charger then. Better safe than sorry.

about the build in EQ , just talk with our engineer, a solution as below:

 

all the EQ mode can be customed in the new firmware. it means you can change the EQ setting and them save it to what every you need for rock, classic ...

 

 

will it a better solution ?

 

Should also have option to revert to default/stock settings in case u mess up the EQ and want to start fresh.

 

Would also be nice to have one for HipHop. Or does anyone who listens to HipHop with an X5 have EQ settings they are willing to share?

anybody tried upgrading the X5 , plagging SD to microSD adaptos at ach of the micro exist? can  normal SD cards work this way with the X5?

post #6769 of 13267

Max outputs are 8Vpp and 150mA, that's at load, and other components inside probably draws additional.

 

5V2A probably charges quicker than usb 2.0 which is half an amp output.  That all depends on how much current the battery charging circuit allows.

My X5 came with the clear/grey silicone. I thought this was changed to black? Does this mean i got an earlier unit?

This is just measurements, listening sessions may differ.

 

 

this is tested by the funder of the most famous Chinese forum about headphone, same as Jude in Head-fi.

Do they have HM-901 or AK120 or 240 measurements?  If so, link please. :p

@JamesFiiO, I know others have said this already, but it is really impressive the way you and Joe keep this forum consistently informed. Having experienced wide ranging examples from other manufacturers (some good, some not so good) it is wonderful to see what Fiio is doing to firmly establish itself as a company with clear vision for its products, but also an ear to the community. Thank you for being so open with us all, and for making and supporting such great products!

Oh yeah, and another thing.  This was at 32 Ohms.  THD could differ at different loads, so don't hold your breath.  :D 

 

Edit:  Fiio has 16 ohms 460mW with <1% THD, so I'm guessing the 28mW@300 ohms is also <1% THD?

Actually his measured values are better than what Fiio put out. :D  

 

Fiio put out >255 mW@32 ohms  and THD<1%

My RB iPod 5G + E11 lives on......

I wrote to MP4nation asking for news about my really early (March 22)batch 2 pré order. Here is the answer I got :

Anyone else having trouble getting on the Fiio support page? Can't seem to get access to the firmware updates.

post #6780 of 13267

Would be nice if the Next/Previous buttons (bottom left and right) could be used a PAGE DOWN/PAGE UP buttons and use the wheel for fine tuning to the song. I'm gonna get carpal tunnel scrolling the wheel over and over to reach the bottom! ;)
