It used to work properly.

Tried several.

Anything I can do?

Tried disabling and re-enabling it back. 

 

X1 FW 1.6

Hi, FIXXX

We have added setting to enable / disable use of in-line remotes on earphones since FW1.1. You can find it from'system setting'--'supports in-line headphone control'. But if you can't find it still, please try to update the firmware. The newest firmware for X1 is FW2.0: http://www.dropbox.com/s/ns2hvzrsu8szxtd/X1-FW2.0.zip?dl=0

Noted, downloading and will install! Thank you

 

Update:

Installed 2.0. No change.

Downgraded to 1.5. No change initially, then for a few play/pauses it worked and stopped working.

Went back to 2.0. Still no luck.

 

This leads me to suspect there's a hardware issue with the jack. Too bad, it feels sturdy enough, no wiggling or anything. Every connector i plug in stays solid inside. No water damage, i rarely even took it out of the house.

Shame there's no Fiio dealer here to take a look.

 

Thank you for trying.

How good is Fiio X1 compared to today's smartphones? I've heard several times that they're better than iPods and iPhone 5s but what else? What about other new generation smartphones? I'm planning to buy btw.

if you can find measurements of whatever cellphone you plan to buy, then you can check for a few variables. fiio already provides plenty of measurements for the X1, and you can find a few more here http://headphoniaks.com/blog/fiio-x1-dap-analisis-tecnico-y-review/

 

also alongside other fiio products, there is a second version of X1 discussed in other topics.

The major concern, to me, would be the ability to drive your output device well.  Headphones vary in impedance and sensitivity quite a bit, and that will have a far greater impact on the sound quality than anything else.  I have used mine on line output into a midrange stereo amp, my car system, and headphones ranging from Apple IEMs to A-T and Sony over-ear phones.  It does quite well with all of these.  I suspect, but have not confirmed by testing, that it should perform at least as well as any smartphone in handling a range of output devices, because it has clearly been designed to do so.  Most smartphones are intended for use solely with IEMs, and may have issues when used outside the range of impedance for which they are intended.

Actually I tried to say that I'm planning to buy a Fiio X1 :)

First of all, the Fiio X1 puts out so much more power than most phones. So if your headphones need plenty of power, your phone might not give them enough power to be at their best.

On the Russian forum found out that the phase of X1 through line out is inverted:

Does this affect the sound and if yes, is it possible to fix it?
