Choosing between vamp verza / fiio x3 for iphone 5s

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hello all this is my first post!

 

i own an iphone 5s

i am in a conundrum since the past month on what setup sounds better, is portable and is less than 300usd + headphones under 150$.:normal_smile : (recommendations?)

i listen to all kinds of music and buy most of my music from itunes.I do have a huge collection of audio cd's, most of them will be ripped to FLAC.

one of my friends recommended me head-fi to clear my doubts so here i am!

i dont have access to verza & fiio x3, so no idea which setup sounds better.

 

setup 1: vamp verza (used) + metallo case + iphone 5s (16gb)

              pros- portable, looks nice!, sound? 

              cons- cannot upgrade storage if i go with hi res files Or stick with 256 AAC 

 

 

setup 2: fiio x3 + iphone 5s (16gb)

              pros- storage ,sound?, hi res files

              cons- not as portable

 

 

setup 3: any recommendations? :)

 

 

regards

I have the V-MODA Vamp Verza and it sounds great with my iPhone 5s and iPod Classic.  My songs are all 1411 kbps AIFF on both my 64GB iPhone and 160GB iPod.  I also have hi-res flac files on my iPhone and they sound awesome.  The amp section of the Verza sounds pretty neutral compared with my JDS Labs C5, but the C5 has slightly more bass impact and slightly forward midrange.  If you can get your setup 1: vamp verza (used) + metallo case + iphone 5s (16gb) for less than 300usd + headphones under $150 then I say GO FOR IT
