The portable music product company, FiiO launched the X7 Mark II Hi-Res music player in India. The FiiO X7 Mark II will be priced at MRP Rs. 54,990 and will be available for purchase at the Official FiiO India Store.
The flagship Hi-Res Music Player X7 Mark II made its debut at FiiO’s 2017 Summer Launch Event in Guangzhou, China and now makes its way into the India market.
The X7 was FiiO’s first Android-based smart music player, which made enjoying music very smart. Based on its user-friendly experience, it has brought a lot of happiness to all of us. Just as the saying goes, “in the pursuit of excellence, there is no finish line”. After nearly two years of commission, now it’s time for us to say goodbye to our beloved X7 and greet its newborn successor the X7 Mark II.
The main improvements of the X7 Mark II over the X7 are as follows:
- Upgraded the RAM from 1GB to 2GB
- Upgraded the ROM from 32GB to 64GB
- Utilizes the flagship DAC ES9028PRO
- Upgraded the bundled amp module from single-ended AM1 to both balanced and single-ended AM3A
- Supports fast charging
- Utilizes the deeply customized 5.1 OS
- Supports Wi-Fi on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands
- All-new concealed micro-SD card slots
The FiiO X7 Mark II is among the first of its kinds in Chinese portable music players to adopt 2GB of RAM, allowing it to seriously multi-task and to provide a more fluid experience. The player also comes with 64GB of internal storage and 2 micro-SD card slots, each supporting up to 256GB expansion cards. This means that the X7 Mark II is able to hold up to a whopping 576GB of music, enough for over 19,000 lossless music files, 30MB in size for each. With the X7 Mark II, you truly don’t have to worry about leaving any of your music collection behind, wherever you go.
The X7 Mark II employs the 8-channel ESS ES9028PRO DAC. With an exceptional signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio of 129dB and a remarkable total harmonic distortion plus noise (THD + N) figure of -120dB, this DAC is able to provide more resolving power, better dynamics, and better soundstage for greatly improved sound quality over its predecessor. When combined with the ability to skip Android’s native audio re-sampling (ASRC) along with the ES9028PRO’s unique THD compensation feature and special built-in filters, the X7 Mark II ensures that your music will sound sweet and musical, just like how it is supposed to.
The high-definition 480*800 in-cell touchscreen of the FiiO X7 Mark II is a fantastic feast for your fingers and eyes and also facilitates easy operation of the device. Pre-applied onto every X7 Mark II is a 7H tempered glass screen protector with a 90%+ light transmittance rate. This particular screen protector is hard enough to be resistant to most scratches without compromising on how easily see-through it is. Also included with every X7 Mark II is a leatherette case with a specially-chosen mix of materials. On the outside is leather with smooth outer grains that feel luxurious to the touch and great to handle, while on the inside there is synthetic leather material that helps to protect your investment in this unit.
Despite the X7 Mark II being thinner and lighter than its predecessor, it also packs a bigger, high-voltage fast-charging capable battery – now with a capacity of 3800mAh. And due to support for the popular QC2.0 and MTK PE quick-charging standards, the new X7 charges 2.7x faster than the original model. In merely the time it takes to watch a short movie (1.5 hours), you can fully top off the X7 Mark II’s generous battery.
FiiO has paid special attention to the internal design to ensure that all of your wireless signals, whether it is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc., will not suffer from outside electromagnetic interference. The X7 Mark II is fully capable of supporting the Bluetooth 4.1 and aptX standards. Specifically, full support for Bluetooth 4.1 means the new X7 supports both the classic high-speed and BLE (Bluetooth low-energy) specifications, allowing it to pair with just about any Bluetooth device. Combine this with support for aptX and the X7 Mark II enables you to enjoy true high-resolution music without the hassles of wires.
The X7 Mark II uses a version of Android 5.1 deeply customized and optimized from the core-level up for enhanced audio playback. Compared to stock Android 5.1, the version utilized in the new X7 is much faster and much less prone to freezing and stuttering for a silky-smooth experience.
The X7 is among the first of its kind in smart high-resolution lossless audio players to incorporate automatic detection and search of music lyrics and covers. No more having to manually search and download the correct album covers and lyrics for your tunes – saving you time and hassle.
