FIIO X3 \ Cowon X9 \ Zune HD - Page 2

post #16 of 22
still can't decide, maybe waiting for the new Fiio X5? Or just buy a portable amp for my IPC?

This is true however I no longer have the dx50 as I sent it back to ibasso. It is still a great piece and once the firmware issues are resolved the only other issue is the slight hiss with sensitive iems.

I have never owned a fiio dap and likely never will. I am not a fan of any of their dap layouts that I have seen.

I loved my cowon S9 and J3 however the D3 Plenue wasn't much to write home about.

After sending the dx50 back I ordered a Hibino hdp-r10.

If you have the money there is no sense in waiting for the next best thing. Only about 605 US after purchased from Amazon Japan and using the tenso forwarding service.

Have been using Fiio X3 for almost 5 months and I absolutely feel great with it. Dark, silent background, easy-listening midrange and attentive treble. Comes up with DAC functions and why have to think twice :D 


Cowon is a good option but just for people who like ... EQ-ing. If not, with the normal ( Flat settings ), it sounds nothing special. Now let's think ... do you want to use EQ for each of your songs? I bet the answer is NO. If Iriver give Cowon products the functions to save presets for individual song, then it's nothing to complain here.
