Does Fiio x3 sounds good with earphones such as vsonic gr06?

Thanks

I think you should order the X3 off Amazon, compare them both, then return the one you don't like smily_headphones1.gif

--I have not heard either, but would bet on the X3.

I contacted FiiO about this issue and they told me thay the impedance of HD-650 is too high, and it is hard to drive for the X5/X3. Now I'm seriously considering the option of the Yamaha PRO 500 the impedance of which is much lower (23 ohms) and should be much easier to drive by X3. Any thoughts on this? :confused_face_2:

The Yamaha PRO 500 are very efficient and easy to drive. I would not consider them the same sonic class of headphones as the HD650, though.

Thanks a lot for your helpful input cel4145:wink:

 

Ι do not doubt that the HD650's are great headphones, but from what I can see it will obviously be a waste if I get them only to use with the X3. On the other hand, The PRO 500's are almost equally expensive without having the same capabilities, but at least they will be driven sufficiently by the X3 and I will obviously get the most out of them.

 

Any opinion on that would be welcome. :smile:

I just purchased an X3 and would like to know your opinions on Sony MDR-ZX700 that I'd mostly use indoors. Thank you.

The X3 is well-suited to work with a very wide variety of headphones. It has an amp powerful enough to drive all but the most difficult to drive headphones, and the Sony MDR-ZX700 are not difficult to drive.

Thanks for your reply. Sony Z700 is on sale for only $60 right now, but many said it has design faults and it just can't last. I'm also interested in 7506. I will appreciate if anyone share your experience with 7506 + X3.

Any headphone you buy for under $100 will work fine with the X3. It's not until you get up to much more expensive, very difficult to drive headphones that you might wish you had a more powerful amp.

Yamaha PRO-500's cost well over $100 but taking into consideration their exceptionally low impedance -only 23 ohm's- I expect them to be driven sufficiently by the X3. :)

All of sudden, my X3 can't be powered on anymore. I guess it just died.
