FiiO X5 3rd Gen review

 

A well-built hi-res music player that falls just behind its rivals

Good sense of rhythm ; Solid punch ; Huge storage

Confined, occasionally imprecise sound ; Could be more energetic ; Glitching software

A hi-res player that sounds good whether you’re streaming or playing locally

FiiO X5 review

 

Tremendously deep, powerful and agile sound with hi-res music

Size of unit ; No onboard memory ; Some timing issues ; Not keen on standard-def

The X5 is quite a good thing, but there’s too much of it

Why wait for the Pono portable high-resolution music player? The FiiO X5 is here now

 

The Pono player is due in October, but the X5 is cheaper, plays more types of file formats, and sounds sweet says the Audiophiliac.

The X5 Gen 2 by FiiO

 

The 'Applesque' regenerating life cycle of FiiO products continue unabated with the launch of the all new X5 Generation 2 (X5 gen 2) DAP which represents, for now, their flagship DAP in the market.

The FiiO X5ii is a solid evolution and update on the original X5 and brings harmony to the complete range of hardware controlled non touch DAPs in the FiiO range from the X1 to the X5. If this came out at the same time as the DX90 I would have a bit of...

FiiO X5 (2nd Gen) review

 

The flag bearer for FLAC… and beyond

Great battery life ; Amazing sound quality and ease of use ; Build quality up there with the best

UI isn’t the best with small fonts ; Feels laggy at times during operation ; No clock

Superb at playing music, but needs improvement on UI and a revision of the price tag.

Fiio X5 Review: High-Resolution Audio Done Right

 

Sturdy metal casing All-round sound that excels in every way Brings out the best out of any headphones Extensive file format support

The X5 by FiiO

 

Headphone reviews, earphone reviews, IEM reviews, amplifier reviews and portable audio features and latest news. We've got the lot at Headfonics!

At $350 you can say FiiO are no longer working within budget range for audio gear but in context of how the X5 performs against DAP’s twice it’s price it still remains a ‘best value’ king for me. Those thinking about buying a DAP this year will get...
