The question is this true?
This is what he wrote:
the X3 got a warm presentation already and doesn't pair as well with cans/IEMs that are warm-ish already.
For the other two here are my thoughts:
They sound almost identical.
I ended up selling my DX50 because the C3 sounded the same for about $125 less. Granted the DX50 has some extra features that you might like i.e. adjustable gain, true LO, larger touch screen, better amp circuit... if you're just in the market for a standalone DAP, then you can't go wrong with the C3. However, if the extra money isn't an issue, AND you need the extra power, then the DX50 is still an excellent sounding DAP that will take care of all of your portable
Well , i haven't tried any cowon or color fly.
Only had ipod classic , sandisk clip+ and dx50.
But since i got the dx50 iam not using the others.
But as far as money is a concern, i think a rockboxed clip + cant be beaten to drive sensitive iems and headphones, it is awesome with my m100s.
I actually think that a dap as the clip + specially at this price tag, quality and portability is a must have, beside any other dap you own or prefer let it be dx50, x3 or whatever.
