Well, a good smartphone wont give enough puch as a dedicated music player would.
I have the Fiio X1, and i am personally very happy with the product. It supplies awesome sound quality, the difference is very evident....Throw in an amplifier, and it will be the perfect audio set if you own very good headphones)

If possible, do increase the budget and buy the Fiio X3II. It is better than X1 in terms of sound quality and output power, though not much

thanks a lot for the help. will pass on the feedback.

This could be your best bet too @ 4000 INR.

XDuoo X2

Quite neutral than Fiio X1 but Fiio X3 V2 will be gr8 if he can spend more. In fact I was going to get it but few Audiophile from different forums told me it would not be upgraqde to my Nationite N2 so backed off.

yes no headphone & no internal memory. you will have to use micro SD cards upto 32 GB.

BTW Taxes & shipping extra as per region. Try to add in the cart & then see final price.

Xcellent music player for the price & better to sansa clip or Fuze series for sure.

thanks a lot for the help and that would mean a good headphone hunt as well. i think fiio too has no internal memory.

does that mean x1 is still better?

The X1 is a good player, I like it, but the wheel is flimsy. I have it paired with Astrotec AM-90. I haven't checked it with other IEM's. Quality is excellent for the price.

Fiio x1 has warmer sound signature while xduoo x2 is quite neutral.

When you are looking at cheap Chinese player none of them are bug free. Most hit area is ui, sometimes unresponsive firmware or buttons, minor hiss when the player is on stand by.

Fiio x1 has good ui, stable firmware & quite responsive buttons compared to x2.
You won't go wrong with x2 & with hifinage giving warranty support you should be rest assured.

If I was in your position then would have taken xduoo x2 & some good iem like havi b3 pro1 to pair with, the best combo audiophiles suggesting on head-fi.

My nationite n2 is buggy too but when I pair it with my samson sr850 its complete musical bliss for me.
My sansa fuze version 2 is not so engaging.

Responsive UI does matter. I had a horrible experience with the Fuze+ . In X1 there is a delay in updating the UI for flac files. songs skip immediately, but the info loads a few ms later, this can be irritating some time.

thanks a lot for the info bro. will surely pass it on. i myself am tempted to buy and even checked. Havi though needs to be imported / bought from some international site. as soon as possible, i will buy one myself. thanks once again bro.
