And the result is : High end expensive DAP looking like crapy supermarket 10$ player

 

 

sorry I forget the color...

Bring on the black X1 with the brass ring! Enough of this teenage girl color scheme tomfoolery! :dt880smile:

 

Seriously though, picking a color palette inspired by a product of another maker that didn't sell as well as they'd hoped is probably not the most pertinent move, imho.

It will probably sell like hot cakes though since the more infantile designs (of course just by my standards) seem to be quite the hype nowadays and it's reasonably priced...

The ui looks surprisingly good(hopefully runs equally as quickly), and if you can add black to the colors that will be available this will be a day one purchase!

I prefer the black one with brass ring
the UI is good. I like the design (I don't like glossy icon, example: like default themes of OS Windows Vista - 7)
I can't wait FiiO X1. X1 will be my 1st dedicated DAP :D
I hope it's sounds good as FiiO E10

Ugh, this is what you get for getting nitpicky over the design. Complete departure from the low-key, sort of steam-punkish look to a bland, brightly colored look that seems to want to take on the i-crowd. Except unlike the sleek i-devices, the X1 has a fairly chunky physical design. Ironically, black is the colour that would make it seem slimmer and it's the colour that isn't being offered.

The UI looks pretty good, I will say... If only the colour weren't so garish.

Nope, nope. Really dropped the ball on this one IMO.

X3 has cases, X5 has cases, I'm sure someone will make a case for the X1, which in that case, the color isn't nearly as important.

Case would make it even bulkier..

Hi,

Sometime you must take a look at the screen to see what you do.

...don't want to see ugly thing.

Then do not but the product, nobody is forcing you.

I know for me, the vast majority of the time I will not be looking at it. It'll either be in a pocket, or sitting on a desk or table while I look at a monitor or read. Its purpose is to play music, and if it does that, it can be the ugliest thing in the world. The aesthetics of an object I look at 5% of the time should not be a big consideration. I would remind myself that everyone has different tastes, and just say oh well. It is not a big deal.

Yes, you are right

But the X1 is not in production, you can't buy it.

Sorry, i'm not clear, not only the look i was talking about overall build quality.

Aluminium is more durable and sturdy than plastic... that's why the Iphone 5C is only 30% of the sales of apple, 70% prefer the aluminium finish of the 5S.

You seem to have missed my point.  I was talking about the aesthetics.  I never brought up aluminum vs plastic.
