    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    Hi, I just wanted to ask current X5 owners whether the player is stable if just playing music with the fiio music app (with latest firmware and music app version)? I have a chance to buy one sealed at a decent price so wanted to ask before going for it. My use case will be listening to my...

    TOPPING NX1 Portable Headphone Amplifier Impressions Thread

    Indeed, it ended up being a good buy, especially with that battery life. Forgot to turn it off three nights (turning it off on the morning after waking up) and its still running without me having to charge since - my E12 nor the E17 wouldn't get past the first night!

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    Hi guys, I have a question about the shuffle feature: does it make sure that every track is played (before a track is played twice), or does it just play any random song? I liked how the shuffle feature on ipods and rockboxed players make some sort of shuffle playlist when you set to shuffle so...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Never personally tried them, but the Woo Audio WA6 and MAD Ear+ gets a lot of love from the Grado afficionados

    Grado Fan Club!

    Would the RS2 be less aggressive than the RS1? For metal I found the RS1 to be the best I've heard, but for Japanese pop it felt too bright with the L-cush, and too forward with the S-cush. Thinking of upgrading, but the RS1 is out of my budget!  D:

    What are the most comfortable headphones regardless of price and sound quality?

    Senn HD650 and Shure 1840 for me, with the HD598, Beyer DT880 and maybe the HifiMan HE-560 as runner ups

    Need help choosing first decent headphone

    I tried both with JPop; personally for female vocals alone, I think the HD598 has the edge due to its smooth treble, spacious soundstage yet mid-centric sound that emphasizes the vocals. I find the DT880's brightness and wide soundstage to be an odd combination for JPop (yea the genre does have...

    Need help choosing first decent headphone

    I second KG Jag's advice. I've had a chance to audition both the HD598 and DT880, and they both have the soundstage...very comfortable as well. Female vocals sounded nice on the DT880 (unlike its little brother DT770), but it felt like the bass and treble were boosted relative to the mids. Not...

    bassy headphones for jpop and jrock under 100

    What about the UE4000? The sound signature is quite warm to me - nice well extended bass, and recessed treble so poor recordings don't sound too harsh (i.e. certain Fripside songs). The mids don't feel recessed at all, which makes them a contender for this genre of music methinks. Weaknesses...

    The FiiO X1 Discussion and Help and Support Thread |192K/24B|100mW | LO | inline remote

    Glad to hear that James! So I'm assuming that means the battery life gets a slight extension then? How is everyone's experience with the battery life? (its a priority for me, and from what I've read its already a solid device in terms of SQ) Seems like I'm on the road to owning another FiiO...

    Just wondering how do these headphones sound with a tube amp?

    Fiio X1 VS Colorfly C3?

    Oh man, so the "shuffle" is more like a random play than a true shuffle huh. A bit of a deal breaker for what I want to use this DAP as...but still, looking forward to your comparisons!

    Yes that would be great! Thanks

    Colorfly C3 Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I organized my clip's library so its one folder per genre so I should be all set for that. But for the lack of auto resume, I guess pausing the track would be a reasonable workaround if it's just for 1-2 hours? Also I noticed on your profile that you have a rockboxed clip; is the...
