The Lowdown on The FiiO X7: Android Based Smart Portable Music Player

by Shanika Jhunjhunwala October 16, 2015 6 Comments

FiiO has made a name for itself producing high end audio players. It places great importance on users’ needs and ceaselessly pursues perfection in product design and manufacturing, to give users  with the best audio products at the best prices. 

FiiO's present range of players, the X1, X3 and X5 might be delivering on the audio front, but, the users of these products will certainly agree that the products were far from being stylish or easy to use. They ran on an early generation iPod- like click/scroll wheel.

So when FiiO announced a new addition to the family, the X7, it not only grabbed everyone's eyes but also made the wait for the product irresistible. The new X7 is different from all others. Not only does the chunky smartphone-sized high resolution digital audio player feature a multitouch screen and quad-core processor, but it runs on Android KitKat. You can now not only install apps and software modifications when it comes to music, but also do what you do with your Android device such as browsing and etc.

The X7 might probably be the best Android music player in the world.  It supports 384 KHz / 32 Bit DSD 128 supporting various lossless format, 4.0 Inch Full Touchscreen, ESS9018 HiFi DAC, interchangeable amplifier module design and measures at 130 x 64 x 16.6 mm.

The X7 is capable of handling WAV files up to a resolution of 64-bit/384 kHz, as well as all the usual uncompressed and compressed formats supported by modern media players, including AIFF, FLAC, WMA, MP3, AAC and OGG, with native DSD64/128 and 352.8 K DXD completing the audio support profile.

We at Headphone Zone are eagerly waiting for the new X7 to be launched. What do you guys think about it?

I got the opportunity to try out this excellent piece of craftsmanship by Fiio the X7. A superb hardware, quality & finish. THe sound is just par excellence with a large soundstage and very airy and bit towards the warmish effect. However, the user Interface with the touch screen is just awesome. Though The UI needs to be streamlined and remove some glitches and tweaked here & there its is one one the best DAP available in the market.
Let me correct you here “will be available” by December end and I have already booked one for myself. Well cant wait to lay my hands on this beauty the X7.

Thanks Raghav & your Team for making us test, touch & feel this device during the Headphone Connect Meet in Delhi. It was w wonderful Experience. Cheers

For a product so niche & top of line of DAPs Fiio should have had 2 slots for the SD Card. 128Gb & some onboard memory is too low for large high resolution file collection. However, the specs of this new device looks promising.
So looking forward to the launch.Cheers
