    Advice on portable player

    Hey all I'm coming from using hd428s for a while now and just bought the denon d600 the other day. I love the way they sound but I had to tweak the EQ settings a bit. I've been doing a lot of reading on being able to power headphones to their max potential and it brings me to this series of...

    X1 Custom Firmwares

    Hey guys!   Just made an account to share this with you.   I wanted to make custom themes for the Fiio X1 but couldn't find much about it. I had a good look at the FirmwareTools package that Fiio uploaded earlier and saw that the tool is capable to unpack and repack the X1's firmware! I made...

    I can't make up my mind

    DAP setup best matched with M50

    Hey everybody, I am just getting into becoming an audiophile and learning to appreciate high quality sound. But the decision on what equipment I should start off with is giving me grief. Starting off, I am thinking of getting the ATH-M50. They are pretty reasonably priced and I've heard really...

    Looking for a DAP w/ a line out at least equal in SQ if not better than the E07K or an Ipod Classic 7th Gen ?

    Hey all!    I've got a modest set up currently. E07K>E09K>HD600. And yet, for a couple reasons, a portable dap would probably be better than messing around with my work laptop. When I moved to this set up, I got rid of my Ipod Classic, expecting a smoother transition than I've had. ...

    If I were to buy a Fiio X1, X3 or X5 Would these 2 ear-in babies. do the Digitial Audio Player fully justice? Or Would I need a better ear-in for an DAP like that?

    Looking for earbuds that don't get too loud

    I am trying to find a good pair of in ear phones that will not get too loud.  I am a disabled person and I cannot put in or take out my earbuds myself, and I'm kind of paranoid about sudden jumps in volume, like when you watch a really quiet YouTube video, and then the next one is recorded much...

    X5, X1, or DX90 for my 1964 ears v6's

    Hey there Head-Fi,     I've recently made the plunge and purchased my V6's from 1964 Ears. I'm now in the market for a new DAP and I've narrowed it down to the 3 listed in the title. Obviously I know that the sound quality of the X5 and the DX90 is superior to the X1, but is it worth it? This...

    Sony NWZ-A15 vs FiiO X1

    I was ready to go for X1 until I read about Sony A-Series and now I'm a bit confused...    What I really like about the Sony A15 is the convenient slim design as well as the significantly longer battery runtime (up to 30 hours of Hi-Res playback). On the other hand it doesn't have a DAC...

    FiiO X1 Ultraportable Hi-Res DAP

    Poised for launch internationally in September 2014, the X1 will be FiiO's most compact DAP yet and is priced to move (target MSRP under 100USD) but does not skimp on features, with 192kHz/24bit playback just like its big brothers and preserves the successful UI of the current flagship X5...
