Finally got it out by using an eye lash remover (wife's emergency toolkit)!!!

I just got a fiio x1, first 'real' dap, is it recommended to burn in in any way? I recall the dx50 had a 'thing' inside the box to do a burn in without headphones.

Just received the X1 a few hours ago (first Fiio DAP).  Gotta say, very happy with the sound.  So far with two headphones it's kickin' @ss.  No iems, or line out yet, but soon.  Gapless playback is flawless and love the album art display (files are all ALAC with embedded art).

 

Cheers!!!

Nah, no burn in needed to enjoy them;)

I'm noticing when I click the enter button or center button I can't feel the click when pressing on the left upper corner but the click is way more noticeable when pressing on the right lower corner, is this normal?

Definitely not Miley Cyrus though, that will actually ruin your sound system.

I've managed to find a 24bit 96000 Hz FLAC copy of the Sogno album and it is very good for testing sound quality of equipment and EQ settings, but I am finding very difficult to change the Equalizer to get the right effect,

 

I know the left side of the EQ is bass and the right side is treble but not sure how the different levels affect individual instrument sounds.

 

The main trouble at the moment is that treble sounds are very harsh, for instance Celine's voice in the 2nd song on the album is very harsh. There is a tsk type sound that almost cuts my ears it is that sharp.  I want to get rid of that and the echo that goes with it without weakening treble type sounds such as a violin.

 

Also the bass drowns out the space like a hum almost rather than being discrete.

 

I am not good at describing how things sound so I hope this makes sense.

 

Edit: Lowering the volume seems to help. Not sure how that works. :)

The EQ doesn't work on files that are above 48kHz sampling rate.

Must be normal, mine do the same, but I think we are supposed to press dead center on that kind of button and you can feel it big time.

I need some help on what could be the best EQ to use with the X1 and the Grado SR225 ? I did try many conbination but still looking for an all purpose EQ for Vocal and classic music.

Thank you
