The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote - Page 113
Gear mentioned in this thread:
The HS6 can also be used with any number of amps. It's basically a hard frame around the X5, around which you can loop elastic bands around amps of any size that roughly fits with the X5--just like ye old silicone armband arrangement--without said elastic bands covering the buttons or screen of the X5.
I see....so the price of the kit will be less to HS6 due to X1 being small (HxWxD) then. angled 3.5mm interconnects are most welcone than bulky straights.....

will be the same as HS6 cause the cost is from the cable but not the plastic frame.
Ok.....I once (initially) quoted to include microSD cards with discounts along with the X1 sales,if you recall, but now will you fulfill our request by including the X1 stacking kit along with the X1s? Just that kit. OR atleast the frame and bands themselves as we already have more enough interconnects (fm FiiO amps and customs) and unused spacers.....
And its easy to get msd cards cheap with higher capacity presently and perhaps everyone already have it handy (phones,daps etc) but the kit is a must to be shipped with the unit....imo,considering the fact its available thru only FiiO...If the kits are readily available by launch of X1s,they can also be included with the price you gonna set...
ONLY if possible and works out for you else we'll wait.
Hey guys , I just received the X1 this afternoon, big thanks to the FiiO team in providing a sample version of the X1 as part of the world tour. After having spent 3 hours with it, here are my first impressions :
The unboxing : it came in a little white padded box similar to the size of a special 2CD album case, the X1 was fitted in the black silicone case, below the player itself you have a little flat box with the user guide and 2 screen protectors (a third one is already applied on the player), on the right side you get a rectangle box with a USB to Micro USB cable. Don't forget that it's just a review sample, the retail version will comes with a couple of accesories such as arm band, stickers, extra case, extra cables etc.
The X1 : small enough to hold comfortably in one hand (size of a deck of cards : credits to twister 6), when switched on there's a welcome screen on a white background, followed by the language selection then got into the idle screen, it was on the grey theme by default with a fully charged battery, when navigating for the first time, I can see improvements comparing to the X5 but the screen is a real scaled down version, I noticed the very low contrast that makes the screen look '' washed out '', things get better when switching to another theme and I got the best contrast with the orange one. The build quality is like a tank with a very premium feel, but there's an issue with the chrome buttons, when looking closer you can notice some '' stains and micro dents'' .....Anyway that's a pre-production unit, I can't expect premium quality control for the moment, I hope that FiiO will review this for the final retail version. The scroll wheel is better than the one on the international X5, but I prefer the one on the japanese edition of the X5 http://www.oyaide.com/fiio/x5.html which seems to be more rugged and less proned to scratches and dents.
The sound : I inserted a 32 GB class 10 micro SD filled with a dozen of Wav and Hi - Res albums from 16/44 to 24/192, when listening to the first track (Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd), I did have to raise the default volume 33 to 60 to get the perfect volume level on my Sony MDR XB30EX which impedance is 16 ohms, at first it sounded very thick with a slightly bassy signature (I was using a bassy iem ), when switched to my Shure SE425 , the sound got more details, clarity and neutrality. The sound signature is pretty similar to my AK100 out of the box but with less details, I think it requires some burn in to shine. I haven't yet audition the X1 with my cans (Sony 7520 and Beyerdynamic T5p) and portable amplifiers (FiiO E17 and ADLX1), you'll get my full review including a video review sooner. Cheers
