What customers say about "Key Specs"
xDuoo X2 High Resolution Music Player Lossless Music Player ( Silver)
  • The file structure is simple and understandable.
  • There is a plastic film on the screen to protect against scratches but I couldn't feel it.
  • I am really surprised with the sound quality of this Music player. Operating is easy, with just the options you need to play Music.
  • Attention, on screen is protectional tape! You can found some sratches on it - just take it down, screen is perfectly clean.
  • Screen impossible to see in the sun.
Fiio X3-II High Resolution Music Player (Black)
  • I also don't like the way it displays my files.
  • I love the way it shows me my screen art - as I've taken the time to tag and put in screen art for nearly all of my collection .
  • The font size is very small and hard to read. I ended up picking the theme with the best contrast so I could read the menus. Still, with less than good eyesight I can barely read the display.
  • The UI could be a bit more convenient and the display is not as great.
  • The display is fine indoors, but a little hard to read outdoors.
  • The screen isn't bright enough. And its small, so its almost impossible for me to read in daylight, forget while driving

What customers say about "Features"
xDuoo X2 High Resolution Music Player Lossless Music Player ( Silver)
  • Solid feel, made of aluminum, and surprisingly compact.
  • Good depth in music reproduction.
  • Really very impressed with this. Solidly made from aluminium, fairly intuitive to use.
  • Good sound quality (FLAC).
  • It should be noted that your music should first of all be downloaded to a micro SD card, purchased separately, as the player does not have internal memory for this purpose.
  • Software need still some upgrades but is not too bad.
Fiio X3-II High Resolution Music Player (Black)
  • You can have as much memory cards as you want, which makes your storage space virtually infinite.
  • You can use this as a beautiful sounding Hi res audio player with natural slightly warm neutral sound as well as a DAC to listen to your music on you computer with much better quality.
  • However, in addition to purchasing the MP3 player you have to purchase a memory card and a device to format the memory card.
  • User interface is horrible. Selecting genre, artist or album is very complicated.
  • Making internal playlists is borderline impossible, and importing playlists is very complicated.
  • Excellent player, a little tricky getting the software figured out, but when you do it is well worth it.

  • It has great battery life and will last pretty much a full day of heavy listening.

Fiio X3-II High Resolution Music Player (Black)
  • Battery life seems really good.
  • Battery life is acceptable.
  • Battery life is fine, more than four hours of continuous use.
  • I think that at this price point along with the size of this unit that the battery oughta' last longer.
  • With mediocre battery life. I'd say 6-8 hours that degrades to 6 hours after wearing it in for a few months.
