The reason for my surprise was that every picture I saw depicted the sillicone case as charcoal. Now, this could all be about the lighting on those pictures but I wanted to ask anyone that came in contact with it to confirm that I am not going nuts.

 

To be honest, the "charcoal" silicone case was a downside for me as I would've preferred it black... :cool:

Mine was charcoal.  Received two weeks ago from MP4Nation.

I'm seeing more people mention some harshness in the sound of the X5 - I had the same experience during the tour (though not with every album), so I'm wondering if anybody can pinpoint the part of the frequency where this is occurring...(perhaps somebody has some devices or software for measurement purposes handy) Has anybody had the same experience with unquestionably warm iems/headphones?

Note: this will delete all files inside

copy the x5.fw to the root of your SD card in TF 1 slot

 

Shutdown X5 then turn on while simultaneously pressing the upper left key

Hi mine was very black and more like a rubber than silicone

I can confirm that an SSD can be seen / self powered via OTG on FW2.0...

 

However, I am not able to put any music on it until I get home, so - right this minute, I'm not sure where it actually comes up (as is not on the 'about X5' tab) to view albums / play...

 

Now, short of having a 'mega-stack', I have to decide if I want the E12, or the SSD alongside the X5 (both the SSD enclosure and the E12 are practically identically sized) on any given journey...

Also me - using the X5 (and also the X3) often with Sonys MDR 7520 or the Z1000, which are both more on the warm side (but really sensitiv in DAC/Amp things...). Out of the headphone-out I´m not able to listen more than a few minutes; this is not what I want.

 

At the line-out, with f.e. a RSA Shadow it sounds much better and relaxter without losing texture or transparency.

Folks,

 

Maybe it is only my perception, but we seem to be getting a lot of repeat questions for easy tasks (format cards, upgrade firmware, install USB drivers) that are easily answered if you take the time to read the User Guide.

 

I work in tech support & this is the biggest pet peeve out there; people don't take the time to learn the products they purchase.

 

The X5 User Guide, along with the X5 2.0 firmware & USB driver can be downloaded from here:

 

http://fiio.com.cn/support/download.aspx

 

Learn what your X5 is capable of & how to use it, it will probably save you a lot of frustration in the long run.

Likewise, purchased from the same place, however - I can see how, quite easily, depending on light levels, that this case could look 'charcoal', so - if it is that important regarding the colour, expect darker rather than lighter (unless you have extreme levels of sun where you are, so - not likely in the UK! - whereas it will look a bit lighter).

Just had a quick look at the enhancement request for replaygain only 26 votes! 

Out of all the units sold is this really only a problem for a handful of people,  I have a microscopic library compared to many on here and it bugs me you guys must know something I don't (I do know where the volume control is though :) )

@Joe Bloggs,

 

Just wondering if the option to manually enable/disable the EQ functionality for higher sample rate files can be added. That way we can try to implement it at our own risk to see if we can find a combination that works for us.

 

Thanks.
