Vinith Paramel Audio Enthusiast from Mumbai shares what he thinks about the FiiO X3 2nd Gen High Resolution Music Player.
I previously owned the FiiO X3 1st gen and comparing that 2nd gen is truly premium build with polished metal and good responsive buttons and connectors, only drawback I felt was the scroll wheel which is little bit loose, having said that scroll wheel is a huge improvement to the functionality coming from 1st gen because previously the button layout meant I had to keep pressing buttons to navigate through my big collection of songs which was very cumbersome.
Though I feel FiiO should add a search functionality I know this will put lot of processing power on CPU and RAM, but I really wish FiiO engineers could make it happen!
I use the FiiO X3 2nd gen with the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x and the ATH-IM70, both of which are natural sounding and I feel one of the best companion for 2nd gen, as the soundstage is very airy and vocals and instruments separation is just amazing. I love the setup I have right now and as a music enthusiast it is one of the best listening experience.
Definitely, the FiiO X3 2nd gen is a worthy upgrade, and if anyone wants a dedicated hi-res music player and has the budget of ~15k then the FiiO X3 2nd gen is definitely the best choice hands down.
