Bhazard posted a review of the new FiiO X5 3rd generation digital audio player over on Head-Fi. FiiO has dropped the click wheel and replaced it with a large LCD screen. This is a plus in my book. The new X5 is a dual mono DAC configuration and supports balanced output. All good things and with a $399 list price you can’t go wrong.
Pros: Sound Quality, Android OS, Wifi, USB DAC
Cons: Older android OS, Slow transfers.
Review of X5 3rd Gen
Eesure posted a review of the EO323 IEM on Head-Fi. He felt that these budget IEMs were a great value and definetly worth more than the $60 being charged. I have the triple driver version which appears to be in the same housing. Love the sound but found that they can become uncomfortable after an hour of so.
Here is Eesure’s summary:
Pros: Smooth extended treble, liquid midrange, strong, if a little slow, bass. Great looks. Great accessories included.
Cons: Cable doesn’t detach. Can get muddy when played LOUD.
