I was looking at the Xduoo X3. It looks like a nice player, except that it is crippled with just 8 hours of battery life! They promote the player as being able to hold a huge amount of music(two 128 GB cards full of mp3 files, at 320kbps mp3 around 1700 hours!) yet with just 8 hours of battery life, one could only play 0.5% of that before needing to recharge the player! With two card slots I would expect the player to have even longer battery life, perhaps around 90 hours like the Cowon M2 has. If only this had long battery life I would probably buy one. Will XDUOO ever make a player with long(50+ hours) battery life? I don't need such huge power output or to be able to power 300 ohm headphones. I would probably use it with earphones between 16 and 32 ohms. I like the two card slots, aluminum case, and affordable price(although under $100 would be even better).
