About the Product
Xduoo X3II is overall upgrading version based on X3, which has a good reputation in the past generation. It adopts IPS high-definition full-angle display screen with clear picture quality, and matches 7H hardness toughened glass to effectively prevent shaving.
The black X3 (2nd Gen) from Fiio is a portable high resolution audio player and USB-DAC for audio enthusiasts. The unit features an audiophile grade architecture and premium components capable of playing files up to 24-bit/192 kHz in a variety of formats including native DSD, WAV, WMA, ALAC, FLAC, APE, AIFF, and more. The X3-II utilizes a Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC coupled to a finely tuned low-pass filter offering extremely low noise and phase distortion. Additionally, the tantalum capacitors in the analog circuit provide minimal internal resistance for the best uncolored sound. Dual crystal oscillators ensure the lowest jitter and highest precision playback of music at any sample rate, eliminating conversion artifacts.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
xDuoo X3 II 2nd Generation AK4490 Bluetooth Portable HD Lossless Music Player
  • I love the build and sound quality and features of this unit. Really. Also i like the display.
  • The screen quality is decent – certainly nothing special or to write home about, but it serves its purpose fine.
  • The screen is crisp and clear. It has a micro usb port for charging and transferring files.
  • I was pleasantly surprised at the great sound quality. Very clear and not colored at all.
  • The screen completely stoped working after 2 months. I didn't use it too much.
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

xDuoo X3 II 2nd Generation AK4490 Bluetooth Portable HD Lossless Music Player
  • I wanted my music player to be smaller and different shape than my cell phone.
  • It is compact and very well constructed and I believe it will last a long time with proper care.
  • The player is generally good, the sound emphasis on the mid and high frequencies. Compact and very light.
  • You get fantastic sound in such a small player with fantastic battery life.
  • The build quality is great. Pretty small as well so no problems taking it pretty much anywhere.
Fiio X3-II High Resolution Music Player (Black)
  • Small and compact for his pocket w/out dropping out or loosing it either.
  • It is very compact, but the sound quality is excellent.
  • All aluminum case, good size in the hand, screen is easy to read and back-lit.
  • The size of the unit is very nice for dropping in your pocket.
  • Minuses are a less than ideal interface and it is quite heavy for it's small size.

What customers say about "Features"
xDuoo X3 II 2nd Generation AK4490 Bluetooth Portable HD Lossless Music Player
  • Album art looks good, and all the menus are easy to read and interact with.
  • The equalizer is amazing. The battery life is fantastic. I love how my headphones sound.
  • It sounds great--with the right headphones. micro usb cord and basic software make it easy to work with.
  • I love the size, the improved interface, the micro usb port, and the fact that it has, so far, worked flawlessly.
  • It needs a UI update to really compete. It is not slow but outdated and boring. Needs more customization and just a cleaner look.
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.

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.
