Comparison: FiiO X3 vs. iBasso DX50 - Page 6

post #76 of 82
Does the eq change anything in the sound in the new fw? I'm thinking of replacing My X3 for a dx50 due to lack of eq options among other things. Also i've heard the soundstage is supposed to be bigger on the dx50. Do you guys think that a dx50 + sennheiser momentum (over ear) is a good pairing? Also i do need quite a lot of bass, can the dx50 handle this if u crank up the eq? Afterall, momentums are quite bass heavy themselves

I can't decide which one to get, I'll be pairing them with a set of Westone W3's.

I also have a fiio e17, will I notice a difference combining them with either player?

Hi there. Guys i am new here and need your help big time.

I currently use 1. Ath M50 , 2, ATHANC7B, 3. Sony MDR NC100D.

My sources are
1. Audigy 2 based dell xps
2. Iphone 5,4S
3. Sansa clip +
Plus fiio E11

The problem i am in is that i love the sound of that iphone 5. Its bright sparkly greater soundstage airy and has tight bass with all the cans i own though a bit digital. I like it more then the 4S or equal which is used with the fiio E11

The sanda clip + sound dull dark muddy lifeless and simply pathetic. Now i might have a dodgy copy or some dosdgy ears as most people like the sansa and rate it better to the ipods/ iphone.

Sound wise i would give sansa 3/10
Iphone 7/10

Now i am in the market for some new iem and a DAP
X3 or the dx50 or the hm700 or the ipod classic ( as i know how it sounds and have no idea about the others)
I am scared from my experience with the sansa. Though i liked the sony walkmans and there older cd players i really liked that SQ

I am confused as i cant try any
Need your help in finalising 1.

I am also interested in getting the vsonic 1000 or the shure 425 or the x10 or the hifiman 400 iems Which bundle with the hm700 player.

Please help i am stuck.
I read the forum for the dev thread of both the dx50 and x3. But i need to know which will be better and surpass the iphone 5. And which would sound like the sansa so that i dnt go near that.

If you didn't put the Rockbox software on the Clip+, then you haven't really heard the Clip+ yet.  Do that first before you spend any money. 

 

Rockbox is now available for the DX50 as well.  The DX50 with Rockbox installed would be a noticeable step up from the Clip+ with Rockbox.

I have the clip rbd. And i like the basic setup more. Rb sounded digital and weird.
I played with the settings and even used others setting but no luck.

Thinking which to buy between x3 and dx50. Will be pairing it with sm3. Are these 2 a notable upgrade from fuze+?

I had the clip+ and mine may be defective but i give it a 2/10. My iphone is far better 6/10
I use low volumes so its good there

The daps are definitely an big upgrade.
Try getting the dx90 or the x5 to future proof yourself a bit. In terms of the amp section.
Get one soon. And enjoy the music as it is supposed to.
Cheers
