What customers say about "Key Specs"
Shanling M0 Hi-Res Bluetooth Touch Screen Portable Music Player (Purple)
  • In general I am happy with this device, would recommend to buy, overall quality is like Apple, box and device looks very expensive.
  • This is a really good sounding hi-res player, especially considering it’s size.
  • The size of the device is perfect to carry around, its about the size of an apple watch but a little bit thicker. The UI to me is great for the size.
  • The names are too long to read on the small display. I need to work on importing existing ones to get around that.
  • The only drawbacks are the comparatively huge bezels for the screen. The display font could have been made smaller so that song names can actually be read.
Fiio X1 High Resolution Lossless Music Player (Silver)
  • All the album art displays on the screen when music is playing, maybe not important, but cool.
  • The display is a little too bright for me at night even on the lowest setting, minor complaint.
  • This display format cannot be changed.
  • No album artwork with the display.
  • I haven't spent much time with this thing yet, but my first impression is not a good one due to the upside down display.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Shanling M0 Hi-Res Bluetooth Touch Screen Portable Music Player (Purple)
  • Nice little audio player, great Bluetooth functionally, and I've enjoyed using it until the past couple weeks.
  • Impressed by size, it is amazing. And very light device.
  • Everything a music lover could want in a pocket size. Positive price to value ratio.
  • The small size makes the user interface more complicated.
  • My only problem is the size compared to my motor skills. I find it hard to navigate.
Fiio X1 High Resolution Lossless Music Player (Silver)
  • Very good sound quality considering its size and price.
  • Sound quality is great. Size of the unit is perfect. Very intuitive.
  • i like the weight of the player and the buttons function just fine,,the scroll wheel is very good as well.
  • Light weight is a plus. I use a 64 gb card in it and still haven't filled it up. And you can delete songs from the gadget, which is very helpful. Plus, it’s very lightweight.
  • Lightness in weight and the materials used (specifically in the wheel) make the product feel cheap.

What customers say about "Features"
Shanling M0 Hi-Res Bluetooth Touch Screen Portable Music Player (Purple)
  • The memory is exactly what I want in all my portable electronics- expandable! You can fit a 512GB card in there if you can find and afford one.
  • The UI is clean, quick, and easy to navigate consider the screen size.
  • The best I like is direct USB digital output. It can function as a portable player on the run and a digital source for desktop DAC. Love it!
  • Bluetooth works great too and the LDAC functionality is perfect.
  • My biggest complaint, that you can't go back or skip songs with the controls on Bluetooth headphones.
Fiio X1 High Resolution Lossless Music Player (Silver)
  • Handles multiple formats, including FLAC. That is a huge advantage over the iPod.
  • Very good unit. I like the fact that it has a micro sd slot so you can add/remove songs as you like or have multiple sd cards and have your own little play lists at your disposal.
  • This device has exceeded all of my expectations. Build quality is fantastic.
  • I do wish the sd card slot had a little cover or something, but other than that, I can’t complain.
  • Perhaps a cover over the SD card slot would have been an improvement.
