As far as what _I_ make of them, well I am an unabashed Sennheiser fanboy, so automatically it's a pleasure to have the 'original'. Soundwise very different. Not much in the bass department but they manage to be really detailed without being harsh...a rare combination I must say! They add some 'sheen' to vintage recordings, but not well suited to modern rock or metal. So Elvis sounds divine but Zeppelin, Sabbath or anything recorded post 1970 benefit from a more weighty headphone. Soundstage cues really pop out at you. Was listening to 'Burning Love' and that cowbell on the right side just jumps out. Very cool.

In those days, headphones and soundstage didn't really happen as far as we were concerned. I can't remember their sound but I had quite a few pairs following me around. I also had another similar one which was like a 'follow up' to it which I liked. I think it had a bit more bass and instead of felt, it had cloth covers.

Also not sure about sensitivity for them. Again, we didn't really take too much notice. Just turned the amp up.

There`s a sale of a cheap sandisk 32Gb class 4 microSd card in a reliable seller in Brazil...class 4 is enough?

All my music collection are 320 kbps mp3.

Sure, it just means slightly slower transfer speed, but it's all relative to the devices speed generally overall.

Just be very careful of fake cards, if you're only saving a few dollars buy from a reputable seller.

 




Love my X1 btw, with T-Peos H-300 they're made for each other. X1 does everything those IEM need to pull them into line. The bass impact for example is pretty awesome, offers mid-range refinement and calms the treble emphasis.

H-300 are an IEM that already is basically overdosed with clarity, using strong sources (which tend to increase these areas) over cook them. So dropping them back a gear with X1 is near perfection in synergy.

FiiO have made me very happy with this product.

Cheers!

I got a replacement unit from my local distributor. The center button definitely had issues. The strange thing is we opened a new unit in order to test the center button and it was worse than mine: Very stiff button and not clicking at all. Then a second new unit was opened and voila! This time the button work flawlessly. I went home with a new X1 with a tested good working condition center button.

 

Excellent customer service from my local dealer.

 

Cheers!

I got a pleasant surprise from the USPS today, my "used" (MINT condition!!) X1 arrived two days early! I immediately charged it up, and in order:

1. Updated the firmware to 1.10(thanks to Joe Bloggs from FiiO for the post here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/739521/fiio-x1-firmware-version-1-10-download-and-discussion-thread).

2. Formatted my Micro Center branded (A-Data according to the manager at MC) 64GB microSDXC card using the X1 itself. 

3. Loaded over 49GB of FLAC based music. 

 

The X1 had zero problems with my tags, thankfully. All music was sorted perfectly, not one track was misplaced. I'll report back with more once I finally put this thing down....could take a few hours...or days :D 

Awesome player, FiiO, great job!!

No stuttering, lag or anything else during playback?

Transfer speed is not a problem.

Only effects transfer speed in the case of MP3 players, card class is more importantly for camera enthusiasts who need a fast read / write speed . Take HD video recording for example.

Play music = OK

I'm happy with mine as well and the X1 sort of makes sense of the current hybrids. All these bright hybrids with extra midbass scare me away but now with the X1 that may be a different story. Tame the midbass, refine the mids, and reign in the treble. The X1 does change my approach a bit to what I would get to pair with it. Still have to wait for my E11K to come on Monday to get the whole picture.

 

My X1 "carbon"...


Must say I like it quite a bit over the all silver. Kept the sides silver.

Nice job on the case!

Yes, I can sure guarantee you, if there's any hint of warmth in X1' signature you're not going to hear it with T-Peos H-300 hybrid.

About bright as it gets just before reaching the sun. :tongue:

hi joe!

 

thank you for replying, i dont know how popular the stickers are. but i'd love some blue stickers in the future (say, sold separately...).

 

the blue from the first post of the thread. it's a really good blue. i like silver, but the blue (colors variation, even if it in forms of stickers) will truly make it the dap of the young
