FiiO X5 preview world tour--tour members, claim your souvenir for the X5 tour! p.123 - Page 22

I know is soon, but please, if you can, more comparison in your description (x3...)
Thanks

So far, it seems like the X5 is full of win. I cannot wait to get my mitts on this - my inner-hype voice is very enthusiastic right now.

Great impressions so far!!

post #319 of 1895
it is sad that dsd decoding is not working currently. indeed x5 is better than my x3 , in term of ui, sound signature.

I second the idea for using the scroll wheel to forward, please try and make it easy to accurately forward rather than a jumpy type forward that skips larges chunks of the song at a time.

Now the impressions started to come, I can sub to this thread.

 

Edit: Lee, I would really love to see SE5way pairing. How do they get along together?

No, and sadly I don't think I will have the chance.

Spacious, detailed, slightly warm but on the neutral side to my ears. Just love the contrast and texture of the sound. Separation is good. Vocals really stand out for me. Very natural, easy on the ears yet not rolled off or overly smooth. Very well done Fiio.

I think you put it in much better words what my experience is so far.

Couldn't agree more.

HYNIX H8BCS0UN0MCR-46M around 4G+2G is seen in the picture here - 

but the storage is probably for system data only not for media files.

 

The new X5 model looks very promising. Again like with X3 model I see no firmware from Fiio to help with restoring if player gets bricked one day. It is a pity.

A serious question, very important basic feature for me:

 

Does X5 support true gapless playback in folder view playing mode? If someone can test and tell me the answer, I would be so happy.

+1 That's what I am wondering as well.  Gapless is the big issue for me.

+2, but since the X3 has supported true gapless playback in all modes for some time now, I just assumed the X5 does as well.

How about the intuitiveness of the controls?  Is it easy to control the X5 while not looking at the buttons?  Are the control buttons in logical, intuitive places, or are the controls counter-intuitive like the X3? 

post #329 of 1895

Fiio is sending X5 in this period also to headphone reviewers as Innerfidelity, Headfonia or others?

Very intuitive, if you are an ex iPod Classic user, you'll pick it up pretty quickly. The bottom right and left buttons are for navigating songs forward and backward and fast forward/fast rewind. The center button is for selection and play pause plus volume display. The top right button is for screen backward action (one click get you one menu level backward, press and hold get you back to the main menu). The top left button is for shortcuts and main menu. It will take you literally few minutes to get the hang of it.

 

So if you have the X5 in your pocket, the bottom right and left buttons plus center buttons are the only ones you need to worry about.
