The highly anticipated FiiO X7 is finally available in India! Headphone Zone welcomes FiiO's very first Android-based Digital Audio Player (DAP). A massive upgrade from any other DAP, the FiiO X7 packs an intricate hardware architecture. This FiiO X7 has no AMP module. From Rockchip's RK3188 SoC for audio processing and the best 384k/32b DAC: the ESS ES9018S DAC backed by the OPA1612 buffer, you can tell that FiiO has left no stone unturned with no compromises being made throughout the audio chain.

The FiiO X7 has a high-impact 3.97” 480x800 multi-touch screen. Being Android, one worries about a laggy UI, but FiiO bypasses that issue with its patent‐pending Pure Music mode, which locks out all Android functions except the built‐in music player—the X7 simply runs as a music player with single‐minded purpose, at lightning speed.

The FiiO X7 has built a music app from the ground up to tackle the problem of SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) through Android to the DAC. The FiiO X7 has a  1GB RAM, and 32 GB internal memory, quad-core Cortex-A9 for smooth music playback under all circumstances. We test ran the X7, and it's truly a work of art to be appreciated.

"With the FiiO X7, the future is portable hi-fi.Impressive detail with expansive soundstage and 8-hour battery life. It presents the intricate sections of the track in a way only more expensive units manage."

"Music is meant to blow your mind, and Fiio is trying its hardest to do just that....and succeeding. Let’s be honest, this is clearly a product designed for a very specific market. Someone who cares deeply about their music, who wants the utmost purity of tone."

  • FiiO’s first Android-based DAP

    The FiiO X7 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and its UI is reminiscent of a smartphone. However, being an audio player, FiiO has done away with unnecessary elements such as the camera app, recorder app, email, etc alongwith internal settings and services. Besides its native app, FiiO also allows you to load external music apps such as Spotify, Tidal and Apple music. 

    DAP Bypasses Android's Downsampling Problem

    Android has a major limitation of downsampling the audio quality. Most high-end smartphones today are capable of 384kHz/32bits because of their DACs but still manage to output only 44.1kHz or 48kHz data when fed with a DSD/DXD file.  Through the FiiO Music App, FiiO has carved a whole new pathway in order to bypass any downsampling.

    Pure Music Mode Switch

    FiiO has designed the X7 to run smoothly and lag-free. With the Pure Music mode switch one can run the X7 as a music player alone, by locking off any multi-tasking or apps that may be running parallel to the playback. 

    480p Multi-Touch Screen

    FiiO's research team ideally wanted to use a 720p screen but due the Chinese market always being bottlenecked by the supply of LCDs, FiiO decided to stick to a 480p screen. It's 3.97'' screen was strategically developed to be of hand-holding size and incidentally falls between the size of an Apple iPhone 5 and the iPhone 6.

    1GB RAM, Quad-Core Cortex-A9 For Smooth Music Playback

    The FiiO X7 employs 1 GB of RAM. While that is considerably smaller than a smartphone's, the product doesn't require the large number of apps, and other services that a phone does. Available memory for install-able apps stand at a modest 700MB.

    Best In-Class Internal Audio Architecture

    After using Texas Instrument's flagship PCM1792A on the X5 2nd gen, there weren't many DACs to choose from that could trump it. Finally, FiiO decided on the best and most expensive 384k/32b DAC out there: the ESS ES9018S. For 2 channel applications, the ES9018's 8 output channels, combine for a 4x multiplier of performance parameters.

    FiiO Music App

    While developing the FiiO Music App, FiiO wanted to cater to the needs of the most serious audiophiles. The sheer volume of an audiophile's audio library was taken into consideration to create an app capable of seamlessly supporting a vast collection of music files across all formats be it DXD, DSD 64/128, PCM @384kHz/64bit, FLAC, ALAC, WAV, or APE.

    Custom Button Mappings

    The FiiO X7 comes with 6 hard buttons for screen-off operation. For maximum personalised control, buttons including the Prev/Next and Volume+/- can be mapped comfortably to the either side of the unit.

    Interchangeable Headphone Amp Module

    FiiO's patent pending dedicated source module + independent headphone amp module design keeps the compact integrated profile of a single portable music player while providing the sonic advantages of utilizing a separate headphone amplifier. The FiiO X7 comes with the IEM amp modules. Soon to be launched are the medium-class, high-power and balanced amp module which can be used interchangeably.

    Supports WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0+Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)

    Supports 802.11 b/g/n for wireless connection to your music resources. 2.4GHz Bluetooth V4.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), for wireless listening via Bluetooth boomboxes and headphones

    390 Minutes to Machine, Colour and Anodise

    The FiiO X7 uses 6061 aluminium and advanced CNC processing in their pursuit of perfection. Each unit individually goes through 160 minutes of CNC machining, 80 minutes of colour anodizing, 100 minutes of buttons machining, and another 50 minutes of headphone amp module machining. Finally, the entire unit is inspected and packaged. Phew!

    Well Sized & Shaped Ergonomic Body Design

    The X7's edges are beveled with a mirror finish on both the front and back, with the back further comprising a stepped shape for best hand-hold ability. The FiiO X7 is a well sized and shaped product both in terms of width and depth.

    9 Hours of Battery Life

    The X7 packs a lot of power! Its 3500mAh capacity Li-poly battery allows for a phenomenal 9 hours of play time.

    FiiO's Assurance of Quality

    FiiO has a stringest quality assurance department that monitors each stage of development and products. Several prototyping is taken place in pre-production batches and all involved departments are self-monitored. Every part of the process adheres to national enterprise quality standards.

Fiio x7

Overall the fiio X7 quality is premium .....but the only issue is with the battery life if you are using it with high power amp(AM5) it drains out quickly.

Not worth of spending so much money on this DAP

Build:
1) It's build quality is superb but I feel it's too thick as compare to Samsung S7 Edge which also boosts 3500 mha battery and 192/24 bit DAC.
2) Touch screen and UI experience is too down as compared to today's cheap smartphones. Feel like using 2008 android music player.

Sound Quality with 192/24 bits tracks:
Setup -1 : Fiio X7 + AM5 + Azude Sine Headphones
Setup - 2 : Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge + Fiio A3 + Azude Sine Headphones
Setup-2 always performed much better compare to Setup-1.
Sound quality, depth, body, clarity is much better with Setup-2.
Battery Life :
Setup-2 gave more than 15 hours of continuous playback and Setup-1 gave around 6 hours.

Awesome!

Apart from the other details written below, the only one thing I would like to re-emphasize is the "sound quality".

The sound quality is AMAZING!

I have tested it with my SE846's - just one word - "Phenomenal!!!"

Fiio X7 with SHURE SE846 make an absolutely smashing combination

Having used the Fiio X1 and the Fiio x5 2nd gen which are both fabulous Daps, the X7 was a natural upgrade for me. The X7 is the best portable device I have ever listened to. Brings your music to life. You have to be careful to feed it with good recordings as it will expose any flaws with badly mastered tracks. The X7 currently come with only the IEM module AM1. Pair it with a good in-ear for best results. I use it with my RHA t20i and my Shure SE846, both of which I bought from Headphonezone. The RHA is a fun sounding earphone and a good match for the X7. However the Shure SE846 are something else. These are clearly the best sounding earphones currently available in India. The combination of X7 and the Shure SE846 is so good that I ended up ordering two pairs for the house. The SE846 and the RHA T20i both come with special tuning filters which actually work. I am however enjoying the balanced filters in both but will look at experimenting with different filters in the future. The X7 is a modular DAP with replaceable amp modules. The modules although launched globally are yet to hit indian stores. The new amp module AM2 shares its DNA with Fiios amplifier E12A which opens up the sound out of the IEM's. The current module AM1 is not for headphones though and I would not use is unamped with one. Even the Audio Technica Ath m70x sounds quite Dull out of the X7. Even the X5ii sounds better with the headphones as it has a more powerful in built amp. Add the E12A and the story is different though. The amplifier module AM2 or the AM5 (high powered module) should solve the problem of driving high impedance headphones. For my use as a portable dap for use with IEMs, the X7 are the best option for now. In case the upgrade bug bites me in future, I shall get the AM2 or the proposed AM3. Till then the X7 and the SE 846 shall be my travel companion.

Good build, clear sound and simple Interface - great package

Amazing design and build quality is impeccable. The package was beautifully packed and felt premium. Sound quality with the V-Moda headphones was excellent too. Mid range was crisp, bass was taut and treble was not overt.

The only bummer in this player is that it just refused to talk to my Denon on Bluetooth, though I remember asking one of the Headphone Zone folks this question specifically. This was sad and try as I could, just could get it to communicate with the Denon. Hope it will connect to my other Bluetooth speakers. Definitely worth a buy if you are an Audiophile.
