Fiio X3 or Ibasso DX50 (What suits to me?) - Page 2

post #16 of 24

 the short way with your tight budget ... what will give you the most change in sound quality is changing headphone you are using ....get some quality (portable -easy to drive ) headphone or in-ear .....and get sansa clip + or zip with rest of money ....it is a nice player and you can rockbox it 

for example ... sansa clip+ & sony xba30 or westone um2

Ok good advise

 

It will takes $50 for the sansa clip (including shipping). Then I will expend $250 in good headphones and amp. 

 

What recommend? (Mostly to use in my silent room)

if you used it with one of the in ears that i mentioned you won't need amp ....there will be no gain from it ....if you want amp for a bigger headphone ....may fiio E11 suites your need ...or fiio e7k .....for a headphone ... there are alot of options : audio technica ath-m50 - ath a700x  ....in case of closed and quite room i guess you want an open design sennheiser hd518 (very good price /performance ratio ) or the higher end hd558

 

also you can concider fiio x3+hd518 but i think it will be too warm !!

The perfect music player for you is the iPhone4. Given you're on iTunes, whichever one you end up getting, you'll end up in the threads because you can't find your music in it. Plus both of those use SDcards, which adds to them being extremely inconvenient for those who like Apple devices. I assume by now, based on the DX50 and X3 threads, that photogs who have Mac Pros just hook up the camera via USB instead of removing the SD cards, or they use a WiFi card to send the photos to an iPad, since Apple people here on Head-Fi seem to find using SD cards as oppressive as walking from Egypt to Canaan :tongue: (when others, myself included, prefer spending on SD cards instead of a spending more money on the 64gb model and still get stuck with just that, since I used to have MiniDisc players)

 

If you really want to improve the sound with a $300 total, I suggest just getting a good in-ear monitor. Maybe get a DAC-Amp later on when you upgrade to a later model that can stream USB audio.

Sorry dude, I'm not an Apple lover, if it's what you want to say, It was a gift

 

I'm just a music lover with low budget at the moment

In that case I'll assume you can work with music files without iTunes, then I'll withdraw the suggestion to stick with the iPhone, and either of those will be a viable alternative.

James/Joe about the silicon cover any chance to add Holes above the TF card readers, getting tired to take off the cover to pop microSD cards in and out and to rip the corners around the screen?

Thanks
