Comparison: FiiO X3 vs. iBasso DX50 - Page 5

DX50 line out is still volume adjustable, but you're still bypassing the internal amp section.

That's why they have those training music players that are specifically made for on the move with portability and ergonomics taken into account. Hence I believe something made for one purpose should not be used for another and its always best and safe to use tailor made (or specific made) item for the corresponding task. Can't imagine carrying x3, ipod or dx50 while training or running. Best to get something cheap and light in weight as chances of getting damaged is higher while training.

post #64 of 100

Received mine today, in short, quite happy with purchase, item looks cool and sounds great, can't complain :)

 

Made a noob mistake, after removing the removable screen protector it comes with (has writings on it indicating the buttons/slots etc) I was placing the spare screen protector it comes with only to realize it lifted the one already on the screen :( I didn't realize there was a screen protector under that removable protectors, now it has bubbles :( I'm hopeless with screen protectors.

ahh that's bad.....try to stick out the stock screen protector and stick in with help of credit/debit card. it shouldn't be a problem....just press and slide along one direction with plastic card..

You can also get a nice upgrade screen protector here:

It applies wet so easier to get it bubble free

I tried...but it seems the edges lost its 'skickiness' and looks crap :( might give someone at the shops the spare one to replace it with, Its quite annoying to look and touch it since its touch screen.

 

The sound quality is pretty impressive with my limited listening so far, lol there is so much parts in tracks that I don't get to hear through other sources such as PC or car.

We're referring to the iBasso DX50 not the Fiio, I wouldn't bother with a screen protector for the Fiio since it has physical buttons.

Yeah you can do that......If I were you I still keep the original spare(very final resort) and buy a cheap but better ones that are used for 4"-5" screens, cutout to the desired size and apply.actually I wld buy ~5" protectors and I cut it to 2 pieces that way I might have a backup on this too.:wink:

 

take a look below, it's for S3 (4.8" screen size) and has more than 3000 customer reviews still holds 4 stars rating! perhaps u get 3 pieces.:bigsmile_face: nothing to lose @ $1.20 w/Free S/H.

Some nice posts with the comparisons, I'm currently in 2 minds about getting either.

 

What would you say could be more suited towards metal music? I saw you mention about the bass on the X3, is it easily rectified by lowering the bass range in the menu?

Would be playing them through the HD25's.

HD25? Get a studio V, very nice combo!

post #71 of 100

Don't quite have the budget for a studio , however nice Hisoundaudio stuff seems!

post #72 of 100

yeesh, cant decide between DX50 or the X3, I'll be listening to them using RE-400, UM Miracle and maybe my Q701, I'm more of a Avenged Sevenfold type of listener

Let us know how the X3 pairs with HA-S680, I'm wondering about the synergy
