    "I’m pretty sure the normal music and iBud loving people would enjoy the X1 as an MP3 player. It would also be a great first DAP for starting young audiophiles or for those on a small budget."

    "The recent launch of the X1 by FiiO sort of completes the “Holy Trinity” of FiiO digital audio players with the existing but slightly aged mid level X3 and their flagship X5 DAP receiving largely positive praise and selling pretty strongly to date."

    "Overall, testing X1 left me with a very positive impression about this new FiiO DAP. It feels very solid, it performs like a mature product, and it has a great sound quality for its price range."

    "As other FiiO products, X1 is made mostly from metal, only the back cover is plastic made and the menu wheel is rubber coated. It is clearly to me that FiiO studied quite some time the layout of the player and was seriously preoccupied by good ergonomics."

    "The X1 is a very functional device with quite a few good features that has a fun but clean sound along with a sturdy build that doesn’t make consumers feel like they have to baby it lest it breaks."

Good one for a basic Hi Res player

Really good. Especially line out mode is the highlight of the hour.

I am not giving 5 only due to missing bluetooth

Fantastic quality

I'm using the x1 with RHA 750 , the output is mind blowing specially when playing flac it results best. It has better quality then my ipod classic. Thank you HZ

fantastic player

I've been using this player for few months, its been wonderful experience to listening songs with this. Bass is always present even the flat sound. Sound stage imagine also good. I suggested to use good earphones to feel the magic.


yeaah its awesome

A Decent Payer in its Price Band

I was Initially not sure of the quality of playback of this player given its price point. But it turned out to be a very decent playing the .wav files with nice clarity and details. Of course you would have to couple this with a nice headphone to enjoy the music in full. I would suggest this player to people who would want decent to good playback of .wav files.
