Right now the only thing I want to see with this new dap is for it to be bug free.
I returned my X3 because it was buggy. I don't really have any interest in the X1 or the X5 if it's just more of the same.
B looks so much sweeter and sleeker to eyes, a budget version of x3 would be effing amazing! :) bbye sansa's :) We'll be keeping an eye on this. I mean I'll be grabbing this immediately once its out! 1st quarter of 2014? or 2nd quarter would be great! :)
I wouldn't either - I have enough spare microSD+SD adapters and SD cards lying around. Either way I'm gonna use these like tiny MiniDiscs hidden in a pocket in my bag instead of blowing more money on these things...for now at least.
Add to that how the people who broke the clip on their Clips still have enough of it left to get in the way on most pants pockets.
Not necessarily, my brother had both iPod Minis of both shapes and the narrower one actually felt better in an armband when I jogged with them. Narrower width made it feel like it wasn't even in the armband, whereas the wider one can be felt whenever my arm moved, as the edges were no longer flush with my arm (then again maybe a better fitting armband could have fixed that). All other situations though I felt the A-shape was easier to hold with my hands and I'd prefer the X1 in that form factor.
the big difference is X1 supports high resolution music format and almost all lossless format. of course, we are not going to compare with Sansa or iPod. lol
