FiiO X1-II Media Player


FiiO X1 II - '2nd Gen.' High-Res Player!

The newly updated - and extremely affordable - high resolution digital media player FiiO X1-II has arrived at  

This 'second generation' X1-II player / DAP from FiiO now includes awesome wireless Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a tidy touch scroll wheel, improved DAC and headphone amp circuitry plus a cool new look with streamlined navigation and design improvements.  


We're not sure exactly how FiiO does it, but they have effectively managed to squeeze almost all of the excellent performance of their very highly regarded FiiO X5-II Media Player into a significantly smaller package at a fabulously low price of $89.99. Holy smokes! 

Regardless of how FiiO actually works their audio black magic, we think the X1-II is the best DAP currently available for the buck.  There's no internal storage capacity, but almost any size micro SD card will work up to 256G. The X1-II has an improved second-gen amp circuitry that can not only drive most headphones quite well, but the device also provides a dedicated analog line output (accessible in 'settings') that is ideal for connecting out to other audio devices like a more powerful external headphone amp, if desired. The FiiO X1 II player will accept virtually any high-resolution music file or sample rate; check list below for details.

Also, most headphones with an Apple 3-button or single-button smartphone controls on the cord are still compatible with the FiiO X1-II player and the pause/play and track forward/back remote control features remain active. Unfortunately, the volume level does not work through the 3-button controller. As a minor drawback, the affordable FiiO X1-II can not act as a stand-alone USB DAC like its big brother FiiO X5 model. We guess you can't get it all for $100 bucks!

There's a dedicated USB feature which works for connecting the X1-II player in the car via a USB cord for charging purposes. For car audio applications, the FiiO X1-II player can connect into your vehicle speakers via an analog mini-to-mini cable. Of course, you can also send out the X1-II signal out to your compatible radio via wireless 4.0 Bluetooth if you prefer. The FiiO unit will also sync via USB with any PC / computer for straight-forward music file loading onto your SD cards or for any potential future FiiO firmware updates. 

We could probably go on about how well the new FiiO X1-II player actually performs, its broad feature set and just how good it sounds, but at this surprisingly nice price, its pretty easy to just pick one up and give it a try for yourself. 

FiiO X1-II Player and Your iTunes Library

The FiiO X1-II Media Player can indeed play all the music files stored on your iTunes library.  Here's how to do it - It's super easy!

Once a micro SD card is installed in the player device, connect the FiiO player to your computer via USB. The FiiO player will be recognized as a USB External Hard Drive. 

Then all you need to do is find your source folder for all your iTunes music (which is usually found in Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music on a PC) and simply drag or copy the desired folders over to the FiiO X1-II device.  All artist and track information will then be recognized and displayed by the FiiO unit as your iTunes music plays perfectly. BAM!
