Fresh lipstick/ perfume on a pig DOES work, no??? ;)


Well I do have a broken one of these I was saving for a project. Pehaps stuffing DAP guts into it might be fun.

^ Dat wheel looks much better with less texture for sure......

... the wheel on the right looks much better esp, with those "X" buttons. A bit too busy with all that texture and buttons going on for the left one. haha

 

Though if the design was like this original concept, the more textured wheel looks pretty good.

.... but Fiio would have to deal with apple possibly. LoL

Other than that, nothing new so far...
Well, I think James has explained on Head-Fi the story behind the design in this thread.

I forgot about that story orz... And I think that poll is not meant to be taken seriously but I found it amusing anyway (I mean, which other DAP in the market has ever inspired such poll?)

To be honest I don't find X5 attractive aesthetically. However I can understand the philosophy underpinning the design. And I applaud Fiio's effort to make their products less 'brick-like.'

I'm with you on these points for sure; that wheel is making it stand out in the competition against buttons and touchscreens for sure (not that they are bad...)

 

Either way, it's to our favour now with the choices we have here. :smile:

Some cases when you DONT want data of any kind on a phone.')

 

I'm sure if FiiO dropped a few hundred grand on them they'd make a dap case design so pretty you wouldnt care if it actually played music at all.
