Bad timing for this drop - a FIIO X5 3rd gen is almost here.
Which is quite possibly why there is an offer on this player... Getting rid of old stock before the "latest and greatest" hits the streets...
But the deal is still quite goon on X5ii!
X5-3 is surely something to wait for if you're interested, but having owned an X5ii for a long while now, I can say with 100% certainty that it is worth it!
With taxes and shipping it's not a good deal at all. I bought X5 1st gen for $120 from a very reputable dealer months after 2nd gen was released.
couldn't agree more,i have spent a few minutes with the 3rd gen Fiio X5 and much to my surprise i prefer the X5 ii,whose emphasis on mid bass,lower mid region makes it more organic than the more neutral last iteration.i know the one i tried had probably not passed the burn in period(i doubt it though since it was to my knowledge in the ONLY shop in Paris having it right now,and the 2 times i went there i had to wait my turn to have the opportunity to use it)but 1st impressions rarely mislead me
The thing I see most different is the treble as the treble is far more energetic on X5-2 where it is smoother on X5-3. Both are great, but each DAP will appeal to a different audience.
