Cons: Highs can be a bit harsh, light on bass (can be a pro), not the lightest iem

Disclaimer   1. I was part of the Fiio EX1 world tour. I had the chance to evaluate the unit for 10 days thanks to Fiio. 2. I have no affiliation with Fiio in any way. 3. The following words are my personal opinion, I wasn’t forced to give a favorable review or leaded in any way.   Big thanks to Fiio for allowing me to evaluate the earphones.       About me   I'm an avid music lover. I'm all about listening music on the go, I have tried several Apple product but never own one. To carry a brick has never been an option for me. Used many Creative players for years.

Real pocketable hi-fi value wonder audio player

Posted

Pros: Great sound, extremely portable, user interface is best Fiio yet, incredible value.

Cons: None at this price range.

Disclaimer   1. I’m reviewing the player as part of the X1 Preview tour. 2. I have no affiliation with FiiO in any way. 3. I wasn't given external incentive to write a positive review, financial or otherwise. I had the player for ten (10) straight days and then the player was sent to the next previewer, for which, I had to pay for shipping.   Thanks to everybody at FiiO for the opportunity to try and review the player.       About me   I'm an avid music lover.
