Just my take.
Cons. 1. Doesn't drive adequately many of my CANS (i have about 10) . 2. Decoder is buggy with FLACs and many atimes it gets confused when choosing next or prev track you get irritating garbled loud fax sound. 3. Interface truly sux. If they are going to put touch they should enable it on the screen not some silly tiny fixed icons. 4. Too chuncky. 5. Inadequate AMP. But good enough for low impedance CANS though.
Plus: Good sound for its price. Silent no hissing.
Conclusion: I do have many other higher costing players and I wouldn't personally use this. Just bought it to see whats it all about. I highly recommend saving up more $ for a better player for an everyday to use unit.
thanks for the review. I'm about to buy this music player, but I think I should save money to wait for another drop though.
Let me see if I understand this correctly...You are saying a value/budget conscious product isn't nowhere as nice when compared with a much higher higher costing ones, it does not drive high impedance headphones that probably need dedicated amps to sound their best to begin with, and electronics size of iPhone are considered huge by your personal standards.
So effectively you are saying a $30k Honda is horrible and should not be bought because it isn't nowhere as nice as a $300k Ferrari. And that we all should just save up to buy a Ferrari? No ****! Way to objectively review apples to apples there, buddy /Sarcasm.
It is awesome you you have money to burn where you can just buy things for shits and giggles, but not everyone is like that?
No your logic is flawed from the get go. So let me rephrase it for your own liking standards. This player is excellent for the sound and cost you can buy it for.
If you can live with its flaws and nuisances then NOBODY is STOPPING you. Actually NOBODY is stopping you from getting it anyway! I've tested it against the very budget cheapies too fyi. I certainly am not putting against the standards of the pro class. You'd be an idiot as your understanding to do that.
It will sufficiently drive any IEMS, and CANS such as a Philips SHP 9500 and the likes (to a restricted safe volume.). Just a comparison between a Sandisk SANSA lying around, the Sandisk wins by a quite a margin on volume.
What I am suggesting is... On the budget category..... I would save a little more.. (example.. double the costs of a X770C) if it means easier to use, better amp, if flac is important to you.
As I said if you are willing to put up with the flaws of this X770C and have a well suited iem or CANs to match it and this is all you can afford.... it is best bang for the $.
I appreciate the detailed reply and clarification. Understandable and I generally agree I your conclusion :)
I actually did buy the player on the last drop with full knowledge of its drawbacks :) Thus far it is been awesome for it is and its intended purpose since I don't always want/need my other "higher costing players" (which to me does not automatically mean pro class).
But I also stand by my comment. My logic was only as flawed as the original narrative of comment it was in reply to :) There were no objective baselines for the subjective impressions except may be inferences that higher grade equipment is better (however, personally $200 is no longer a budget category and comes with additional set of expectations).
I am probably should have asked you to elaborate first instead of getting snarky but I probably read too many Head-Hi comments where everything gets compared to standards of latest and greatest widgets and sucks if it is not LOL As always everything is relative.
I would recommend saving up and getting a different player. While the sound quality is great, the build quality is quite poor. I barely got 5 hours of listening time out of mine before it packed in.
