hi guys

recently got fiio x3

now looking for a headphone for them

there are many members owning x3.. so share your opinions about pairing your gear and which one you like with them

Its winter in Boston, so I love the "earmuff effect" and fantastic sound provided by my Grado 60's.  When I go out for a walk, the X3/Grado combo is VERY beguiling....

I liked it with the AKG K550 - midrange a bit too sweet-sounding for me but won't bother me in the long run as I'd consider the X3+K550 as a protable rig. I was actually planning on going with this pair even before I heard them together (which was at the annual Hi-Fi event over here last November) but weeks prior to that I ran into an ASG-1 on a real bargain (especially when one considers shipping and import taxes here), and grabbed it since it works well enough with my SGS3 (considerably better on the iPad though). Now I'm just aiming for the X1.

 

While I was at it I tried the ASG-1 on the X3 and the treble actually opened up a bit more. Midrange a bit too sweet but not too dark vs my SGS3. Kind of like the iPad, but that one's a bit too "flat."

i got he400 and momentum on-ear to pair with x3

x3 can easily drive moe and satisfy he400

ofcourse x is not neutral.. i like bassy sound.. instrument separation is good that gives more ground to he400 to play with

UERM if in-ear

 

Sennheiser Momentum if over-ear.....the black version is simply outstanding in design........anything bigger defeats the purpose of being portable....but if i have to choose a fullsize headphone, itll be the T5p

 

as for on-ears, I hate wearing them so that's a no-go

Yes, but bi-flange tips and X3 eq helps a lot with the bass. I absolutely love Ie80 and ue900 with my X3 but prefer ie80 more recently. UE900 bass sounds little muddy comparing to ie80 to my ears, even with the pin hole mod.
