I was surprised that it came with 2 free cases inside the box. That is very generous by FiiO and the cases do not feel cheap either. A leather or flexible plastic to choose between.
I am not an audiophile in anyway, but I feel I accidentally became one. It is quite nice being able to use it as a DAC for my work laptop. It did take a little while to find the right driver to get it working but after that it was easy. Did an audio comparison vs my phone (normal headphones and mp3), phone (EX1 and flac) and the X3iii with the EX1 playing flac. The difference is amazing.
Currently trying to find a way to get it to appear on my VW Scirocco's touch screen like my iPod used to do. No luck yet (Still yet to try the MDI to Micro-USB), but currently popping out the microSD into the SD adaptor my car has is doing the job for now.
I do not agree with other reviews saying the software is "clunky", I have found it to be very reasonable after updating the firmware, any bugs I had out of the box were easily resolved with a firmware update.
It is a shame FiiO does not have any software to manage music and playlists, I have been used to iTunes for 14 years but I am enjoying the step away from that terrible software. It is easy enough to manage the storage on the X3iii.
-Schlechte Akkuleistung (nach wenigen Stunden Musik muss schon wieder geladen werden, obwohl Display aus, Laden dauert lange)
-Verwendung nicht möglich während Ladevorgang
-Umständliche Menüführung; Ein Beispiel: Öffnet man "Now Playing" kommt man zur "All Songs"-Liste drückt man den Back-Button kommt man zur "Category-Liste". (gratis Apps wie BlackPlayer sind da meilenweit voraus)
-Langsam (Hochfahren des Gerätes dauert gefühlt zu lange, Eingabeverzögerungen z.B. bei Änderung von Lautstärke, wenn gerade ein Song gespielt wird)
-Störendes Knacken ist zum hören während jedem Songwechsel
-Zu hoher Preis für das Gebotene
-Schlechte Displayauflösung (ist mir persönlich egal)
-Micro-USB statt USB Typ C
-Überhaupt kein integrierter Speicher (SD-Karte ist unbedingt nötig um Songs abzuspielen)
-Der Begrüßungstext "Welcome - Born for Music and Happy" regt zum Schmunzeln an. Klingt als ob etwas Chinesisches möglichst 1:1 übersetzt hat werden müssen
-Tonqualität ist gut (darf man aber voraussetzen um den Preis)
-Potentiell viel Speicherplatz dank SD-Kartenslot
The user interface is truly awful and ruins the player for me personally. I'll give you some examples. If, like me you have a large and full SD card full of different music it is an absolute chore to scroll through the library. If browsing by artist for example other players let you quick browse alphabetically so you can quickly scroll to the artist you want. Not this one. You have to scroll through every artist individually using the scroll wheel, it doesn't shortcut to all artists starting with A, then B etc if you know what I mean.
Secondly you can't create a playlist on the fly like you can with pretty much every other player on the planet. If for example you have an album playing and you want to add some songs to your now playing list from the library you can't. If you want to add a song to an existing playlist you have to start the song and then add it while it is playing. You can't just add it straight out of the library. It is simply awful and tedious to use (for me anyway).
I got this as a birthday present for my girlfriend and whilst she was initially happy, she became quickly disenchanted with it due to its useability. A real shame as the hardware seems very good.
I wouldn't buy this brand again.
The sound quality is top notch and the line out feature is very useful for linking it to my car stereo. The bluetooth function is also a great addition although I have noticed that occasionally some songs won't play, the unit says they are playing but I get no output.
The user interface does need some work, it is fairly clunky and if you are using a large capacity SD card with lots of songs on it, there is a fair delay when selecting some menus. I have a 256gb card with about 14000 songs and I get about a 5 second lag when selecting artists, genres etc. Strangely, this lag is not present when using the 'browse files' feature, but this only lets you play songs in alphabetical order.
Another problem I noticed is that the unit wont remember where you left off if you switch the unit off, only if it is woken from sleep.
Fiio don't have any software to edit playlists, so if you are a fan of creating your own playlists it can be a bit faffy but not terrible. I currently use Media Monkey and then I need to bulk edit the path of each song using notepad. So, not awful but not great.
Extra goodies (case, screen protector)
Never having to use iTunes ever again!
Genre function only gives a list of songs, not albums in that genre
Won't remember the song if powered off
No dedicated software
Creating playlists is a hassle
In conclusion a great little player with some flaws, Fiio need to be more proactive with firmware updates to sort out the problems, then this could be a much nicer piece of kit.
