Before all, i just want to say that all the content this post is highly subjective and full of mistakes.
During many years the only quality DAPs available everywhere were Apple ones.
Then Apple decides that the whole world is becoming tactile, and they stopped the technical evolution of their ipod classic.
Some earbuds and IEMs users were a little bit disappointed.
Then some little companies decided to build quality DAPs for them (and be in accordance with the emergence of a new technology called Balanced-armature speakers)
This revolution needs his emblematic DAP ! (and we don't need a tactile screen instead of car steering wheel)
The result :
Apple Ipod Classic is big and has a mechanical hard drive in 2014.
Ibasso players are big are known to have a risk of ear damages.
Fiio players are big and not as ergonomic as expected and their UI is slow.
There is no good choice... but we have the choice
