Very smooth and rich sound, I listen to a very diverse playlist of music from rap to rock, country to electronic dance, classical and everything in between. One thing I've noticed on my iPod touch is a harshness in the upper mids to the highs, if your listening to classical and then an edm song comes on, your ear drums get pummelled with treble so you turn down the vol. or the guitar on a rock song is just to sharp. NOT ON THE FIIO X3! No matter what is playing the X3 is smooth with great vocals and detail even at higher volumes with zero fatigue due to harshness. the X3 sounds good with all genres. The fact that it can be used as a dac, has a coaxial out to connect to a higher end dac and a line out for my fiio e12 AND an SD slot so I don't have to worry about space makes it great! It falls a tiny bit short on clarity but and isn't a "in your face" as other players but still does an amazing job. Thank you headphone bar!!! The service and shipping was extremely fast!
Fiio X3 II, Titanium FINISH
Fiio X3 Gen 2 review, from Headphone Bar: The X3 Gen2 is a big improvement over the original in build quality, UI, speed and it provides better sound quality as well.
The X3 is focused on sound quality, with high power for headphones, a high quality dac, line out and digital coax out, for easy upgradability. You provide the storage and it accepts up to a 128 gb SD card. It is both an excellent sounding music player AND a quality usb/dac, meaning it can also be used with your computer, via usb, then out to headphones, to easily improve the sound quality of all your computer listening.
It is a non touchscreen, button controlled interface, with simple menus, that will prove functional and easy to get used to over the first week or two of use. A 10 band EQ with small increments is included, high and low gain, for headphones or earphones, balance control and 6 cool screen designs to choose from.
With a line out and a coaxial out, in addition to headphone out, the FiiO X3 makes an excellent portable source. More views and some comparisons with the Fiio X1 and X5 in our video.
