<$300 MP3 player

Any suggestions? The battery died on my old iriver after I replaced the battery once myself. SQ is a top priority. I have a Fiio E11 to play with if needed.

if you doesn't mind for second hand market, you can get the dx50 for $250-300 (new is about $350).
and X3 maybe around $180-200 (new is about $250).

Will go audition DX50 1st and also keep bullets for a purchase next month.
Thanks everyone... Itching to try sony too...
Grew up with sony, but DX50 has so much rave till I am starting to turn my head to take notice...

maybe to tahan 1st, I will dig out my iphone4 and pair with my E11. On the road for 1 whole week and need to preserve iphone 5 for work etc...

In life you get what you pay for.

Don't get me wrong the dx50 is decent

But

I prefer the sound quality, UI and build of the zx1

Also, get something you know u will stick with for a long time. Don't buy smth to just tide you over toll you get something better in the future.

Just one time whack, just cry one time only then shiok shiok after

compare the daps available in SG for demo... then you decide.


I personally like AK sound signature... and clip zip... and HM901 with IEM card + Vintage mode.

Legit point but seems to me edwinz wants something to tide over right now...

Worse come to worse, use Clip Zip first with E11, then go whack ZX1 straight?
