What is the weight of Dx220 Max? One thing which iBasso did right with this one is they went with the philosophy of either portable(to be carried in pockets) or not at all. Not to be hanging in between. Its good it does not pretend to be portable.


Are you trying to see if you can use it as a dumbell replacing the gym? Haha

Why no skip button? Otherwise it would have been a quick buy for me. :frowning2:

I am sure MAX will sound great but I wonder if iBasso rushed a bit without smoothing out the edges like no skip button or no proper volume level display.

One thing I can't stand is Dap having no skip button. I struggled almost a year trying to adjust myself to non skip button on R2R2K.
Finally I gave up.

I am so torn about this one, I want to buy one because I know iBasso produces top sounding products but I don’t really want something that I can’t stick in my pocket when I’m moving around the house, I also don’t want two DAPs.
Ugh.

I think the sound quality on this should be good enough to justify as a desktop transportable, for when you want to do more serious listening.

I bet it would easily fit in your pocket for around the house. I'm actually fine with my Hugo2Go in my jeans pocket–as long as I'm at home (and the music doesn't tempt me to attempt dance moves.)

Then your standard sized DAP could be for when you're out and about and need real mobility (or when the bass drops, and you just gotta move if even a little).

I have no doubts that it'd sound really great but carrying it around will be really difficult. I had issues with my Cayin N6ii because it felt really bulky when I carried it in my jeans pocket. DX220 Max is double the weight and dimension of N6ii, cannot be carried in a jeans pocket. 700gms in a pocket, that jeans will not feel good.

And if you move out, add to it your phone and your wallet. That is 1kg of weight in total.

It is possible to put the DX220 Max in the pocket actually. :beyersmile:

Well yes, but there's the possibility that a beautiful girl will approach saying "is that a DX220 Max in your pocket or are you just happy to see me" :ksc75smile:

For a transportable DAP, the DX220 MAX is not that big actually.

Size comparison of DX220 MAX and QLS QA390

Is it the same screen as DX220? It kind of looks bigger, or?

Thank you very much, @ExpatinJapan. Looks like the CPU clock frequeny is tuned the same, and also it is the same screen.

For me will be enough if they can add double tap to wake up the screen. Maybe if enough people will ask for it that will be implemented in new firmware.
