Fiio X1 review: High Resolution Audio in your pocket


The Fiio X1 is a pocketable High Resolution Audio music player that offers quality audio listening at an impressively affordable price. Does it really deliver what it's meant to achieve? We find out in this review!

FiiO X1 high-resolution music player review
