Just read up a bit on the HM-901. Yup, I'd be surprised if the X5 can beat it. But if it comes even close, look out!
I totally agree.
They make it look like a child's toy.
However, I'm guessing they have been put there in order to differentiate its appearance from the iPod Classic, so as to avoid potential law suits.
Like Sauntere, I can overlook the criminally-naff styling if this DAP performs as well as we're all hoping it will.
Front part could look better probably but I don't mind honestly, since its purpose is playing music. As long as it sounds amazing and easy to use and all the features work, I am all fine. Build quality seems awesome though. I can imagine this device last reaaaaaaly long.
From the centre to the raised outer ring reminds of Classic Steam Locomotive's nose......w/o X . And now we all steaming for the launch, as it was confirmed, that it's the final version but change in color scheme. by the fiio sponsor!
Hmm one interesting thing though.......our mates relay first hand info from chinese sites but only then our FiiO Heroes hop onto the thread to add more comments officially by the time most of us read. LOL.... understood they are busy meeting the deadline next door.
* +1 that's where the silicon skins and leather case come into business. BUSINESS AS USUAL .
** Yeah but Apple will always/mostly lov to sue with design infringements,patents......as they already knew they can't with SQ etc...Ssh...might sue us as well.
