Hello everyone ^^
As title says, I need some advice as i can't decide which new audio player to buy to replace my old sansa clip+
I have some options, but maybe you can recommend something else. (My maximum budget is around 150 eur.. +-). So i have..

- Cowon M2
- HIDIZS AP60 II
- Xduoo X3
- fiio X1 II
- bassplay p3000

Not sure if some of them are similar to each other or there is clearly a winner..
Whats important to me: obviously the sound quality... The battery, expandable memory with microSD, Ui... (so.. All, basically :p)
Hope you can help me decide ^^

What sound signature you are looking for and what headphones/IEMs you are planning to use?
What music are you listening to?

Currently im using a low end senheiser in-ear headphones.
Also received some sony mdrxb50apb extra bass as a gift, but find that they have too much bass, despite usually liking when the bass is tuned up a bit... (so ill probably look for an upgrade of my headphones too)
I listen to all kind of music, electronic, drum and bass, dubstep, chillstep, alt rock, nu metal, industrial, jazz... All depends of the moment and the mood :)

I'd take a look at the Shanling M0. Tiny but good specs, very nice package and good price.
The Shanling M2S has no touch screen, but should be a step up in SQ.

The Cayin N3 has a very good sound in that price range, on the more neutral side, but good for long term listening. The capacitive touch buttons are a little fidgety, but you can remote control it from the phone with the HiBy App

Take it with a grain of salt - I have only heard the Cayin, the statements about the Shanling DAPs are based on information on the net.

Thank you surfgeorge for replying and your suggestions. I'll definitely check the ones you mentioned, but also would like to know some opinion about the ones i posted at the beginning.
Wouldn't you recommend any of those listed?

I don't know much about the DAPs you listed, so I prefer not to say anything about them. Hope someone else can provide feedback.
