FiiO has released a new, ultra-portable lossless music player to the US market. The X1 joins FiiO’s digital audio player lineup as a little brother to the X3 and X5. With the release of the X1, FiiO has introduced a new entry point to lossless music player category. A wider audience will be able to experience master studio-grade sound from the X1’s dedicated DAC and amplifier.
As an ambassador to high-resolution DAPs, FiiO designed the X1 to be as easy to use as possible. An attractive 2-inch color screen relays a simple menu system to the user. Navigation is handled with a pressure-sensitive scroll wheel. Users will be bringing their own micro SD card for music storage. The X1 can support micro SD cards up to 128GB in size. Power usage has been optimized by FiiO engineers and is currently rated at 12 hours. Future firmware updates will improve performance even more.
The X1 is currently available in silver. More color options will be available down the line. Stay tuned for updates.
UPDATE: FiiO has informed us that X1 in champagne color will be available by early November 2014. There will another mystery color offered later.
