    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    I find the charging for the X3 takes a bit of learning. 1) Use a high powered charger, like one from an IPad, which has a big battery, and charges at a faster rate. 2) Even after charging in this manner for hours, the highest my battery indicator will go is 55%. 3) Even after the light goes...

    Bose headphones have been spying on customers, lawsuit claims

    Saw this, too. Wondering if the Sennheiser CapTune can do the same thing.

    New Sennheiser PXC 480

    I just received the recently released Sennheiser PXC 480s.   Although many purists don't care for noise canceling, I find this to be a useful feature even though I don't travel much. Even filtering out ambient noises at home, including wind, traffic, or a TV in another room, is something I...

    FiiO X3 firmware 3.21 download and discussion thread

    Man, I would be happy to get ANY album art. Does anyone know why EAC finds the right album art but doesn't attach it to the FLAC file???

    I have the same problem too. I THINK it's because I'm using EAC with an external FLAC converter.

    First, the OEM says there's no change in the sound signature for the 3.2 version, but it looks like everyone CAN hear a difference.   That's one of the weird pathologies about people who use this board: YOU LISTEN TOO HARD. So you start squinting aurally at your music, trying to "pick" things...

    Anyone have an issue with Windows asking for a scan to "correct" X3 files when it's first plugged in for charge or file transfer?

        Try this- download a fresh copy of 3.0 - reinstall - see if that fixes your issue.

    Ripping FLAC using EAC?

      Actually, you don't have to use Foobar. Open EAC, go to "Compression Options," check box that says "Use External Compression Option"  and choose the FLAC encoder from the browser link. This site has some tips on use.   http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=EAC_and_FLAC

    Finally got some couch time with my new player. Too perfect a summer weekend to spend indoors- and I ripped a few CDs to FLAC with EAC, and loaded them onto the player. I deliberately loaded tracks I had heard over a million times, including the Beatles, which are drilled into my head, my being...

    OK. Charged, and up and running. Couple of tips. Forget formatting the SD card internally. Install the card, plug the X3 in, right click on the card when your desktop finds it, and format from there. Over and out.   With the firmware update, download, unzip, and drag the file right on to the...

        Just ordered mine minutes ago. Good price with free shipping and no tax. Hoping the experience lives up to the accolades, which seem to be universal. Ripped my first FLAC track yesterday. Much work to be done!!

    What Happens if Cell Phones Take Over

    It's true what you say about cameras and "prosumer" equipment, on a few levels, anyway. But these differences get narrower and cheaper every day. Cell phone cameras are improving with each roll out of a new range of product, and are offering sophisticated controls that mimic dedicated equipment...

    What Happens if Cell Phones Take Over

    My daughter and I were at a Radio Shack today for a phone upgrade to an Apple 5s.  If you haven't heard, Radio Shack is probably going into bankruptcy some time next year. Their bonds are rated junk, and "Negative Outlook" which is a shame, but the ultimate fate of any retailer who offers...

    Review by 'MP3guy' on item 'AKG K490 NC'

    I got these phones as a gift, and I am quite happy with the sound quality and comfort. The noise cancelling is also quite good, and can completely eliminate certain frequencies of extraneous noise. Fun playing with the on/off switch to appreciate the difference! I listen to a wide variety of...
