X7 FAQ v0.2

A. Power and Charging
1. How big is the X7 battery capacity?  How long can it run on a charge?
The X7 is fitted with a 3500mAh Li-polymer battery, and can normally run about 10h on a charge.
Runtime tests conducted in lab conditions using the standard IEM amp module, simulating real-world operation of the player.

2. How to charge the X7?
The X7 utilizes a micro USB port for convenient charging methods:
① Using USB power adapter (DC5V; recommended rating 2A or above)
② Via USB data cable to a computer; charging time will be long because of limited current of computer data connection
③ Using portable USB power banks (DC5V; recommended rating 2A or above)

3. How long does a full charge take?
Using a DC5V 2A adapter as recommended, the X7 charges from empty to full in about 4 hours.

4. Can the X7 be used while charging?
The X7 has a high-quality power management circuit to ensure reliable operation under all conditions.
① The X7 may be used while charging without affecting sound quality or safety.
② The X7’s chassis temperature may rise somewhat if used while charging; this is normal.
③ Using the X7 while charging it would extend the time required to fully charge the X7;  we still recommend that you charge the X7 while it is idle, to shorten charging time.

5. Does the X7 display accurate battery readings?
The X7 has a built-in coulomb meter for accurate battery readouts in %.


B. Format Support
The X7 supports the widest range of audio formats in the X series to date:
Lossless:
DSD: DSD64, DSD128 (.iso & .dsf & .dff);
APE(Fast): 384 kHz/24 bit;
APE(Normal): 384 kHz/24 bit;
APE (High): 384 kHz/24 bit;
AIFF: 384 kHz/24bit;
FLAC: 384 kHz/24 bit;
WAV: 384 kHz/32 bit;
WMA Lossless: 96 kHz/24 bit;
Apple Lossless: 384 kHz/24 bit;
Lossy:
MP2, MP3, AAC, ALAC, WMA, OGG etc.


C. Music Transfer
1. What operating systems does the X7 support?
The X7 supports Windows XP/7/8/10 and Mac OS X.

2. What USB ports may the X7 be connected to?
USB2.0 and 3.0 ports are supported.

3. What are the transfer rates of the X7?
Transfer rate depends on the data format and the micro SD card used.  Using a Sandisk Class 10 SD card, the following results were obtained using the ATTO Disk Benchmark:
Internal memory: writes 13MB/s, reads 39MB/s (approx.)
Micro SD card: writes 7.5MB/s, reads 38.5MB/s (approx.)


D. Bluetooth Connections
The X7 supports pairing with Bluetooth earphones or boomboxes, bringing you convenient wireless music enjoyment:
a) Pull down the settings menu from the right and click the Bluetooth button turn on Bluetooth;
b) Hold down your finger on the Bluetooth button to bring up the dialog to scan for and pair with nearby Bluetooth devices;
c) If using X7's built-in player app, you may choose between Bluetooth and onboard headphone output even while connected to Bluetooth;  for other Android music apps, Bluetooth audio output is selected by default.


E. Playing Music1. Can the X7 use third party music apps?
The X7 comes with the industry-leading built-in music app, but out of respect of each user’s usage habits, the X7 supports third party Android music apps recommended by FiiO.
To preserve system stability under the open Android architecture, FiiO maintains a list of apps recommended for use with the X7.  In Android mode, we recommend that you click on the " FiiO Marketplace" icon to select and install 3rd party apps for which we have rigorously tested compatibility with the X7.

2. Is the X7’s built-in music player easy to use?
FiiO always strives to provide the best user interface and user experience to its users. The X7’s new built-in music player supports multiple gesture commands, and the shortcuts menu can be brought up by a floating button, bringing you unparalleled control over your music.

3. How to use the X7’s Pure Music mode?
The X7 supports switching between Android and Pure Music modes, bringing you the best of Android-based and “Pure” music players:
a)Pull down the settings menu on the right and push the Android / Pure Music button to switch to the desired mode
b)Restart the X7 to enter the chosen mode.
Pure Music mode locks the X7 into the built-in music player for minimal distractions and zero system resource competition by other Android apps.  Android Mode allows switching to other apps for maximum flexibility.


F. WiFi
The X7 supports connection to WIFI hotspots for online streaming of unlimited music content:
a) Pull down the settings menu from the right and click the WIFI button to turn on WiFi;
b) Hold down your finger on the WIFI button to bring up the dialog to scan for and connect to available WIFI hotspots;
c) Stream music files directly over the network or use FiiO’s whitelisted streaming music apps to stream unlimited music;


G. Firmware Updates
Firmware upgrades may enhance functionality of the player but improper operation while upgrading may render the player unusable!  Please read the following instructions carefully before updating the firmware:
*Ensure that the X7 is adequately (preferably fully) charged before attempting to upgrade.
*Switch X7 from Pure Music mode to Android Mode and restart X7 (if not already in Android Mode) so that Android functions may be accessed: pull down settings menu from the right and click Mode button to change from Pure Music to Android and reboot.

Firmware update methods:
1. Over-the-air automatic firmware updates
a.        
Turn on the X7’s WiFi and connect to a hotspot connected to the internet.
b.
If any over-the-air firmware update is available, the X7 will detect it automatically and the following dialog will appear:

c.        

Click “Yes” and the update will be downloaded and installed automatically (note: please connect to a high speed connection to save download time.  The download may be paused or cancelled at any time;  it can resume from the last position.)

2.  Manual update via update zip file
       a.  Copy the update file "X7 update.zip" provided by FiiO into the root directory of a micro SD card in the X7 (or root directory of the X7's internal storage).  In the case of putting into the micro SD card, it is recommended that the card be of 32GB or under, and formatted in FAT32.
        b.  With the SD card in the X7, turn on the X7 in Android mode and select "Technical support"->Firmware update->external_sd (or internal_sd if you put the file in internal storage) and select X7 update.zip.  The following dialog appears:
4.png

         c.  After clicking "OK", wait patiently and do not operate the X7.  The X7 will automatically restart and enter firmware update mode.

5.png
   
d.  After the firmware upgrade is complete, the X7 will restart again in normal android mode for use.
3.
1) Place the X7 update.zip provided by FiiO into the root directory of the micro SD card.
2) With the card inserted, turn off the X7 (if not already off), then turn on the X7 with the volume –button to enter recovery mode.
3) Using the "volume +/-" buttons, move cursor to “apply update from external storage”, use power button to select, and choose the X7 update.zip file.
4) Press the power button again to select the file for updating the X7.  After the update is complete, choose “reboot system now” to restart the X7 in Android mode.


4. Notes and precautions:
a. If attempting upgrade using SD card, the SD card should be formatted in FAT32;  if upgrade fails, try using a card of 32GB capacity or under, format it using the X7 (back up data on the card first), copy X7 update.zip inside again and attempt upgrade again.
b. If attempting upgrade using internal memory, there needs to be adequate free space (preferably over 1GB); copy X7 update.zip to the internal storage and select "internal_sd" for the upgrade.
c.Do not push the X7's buttons while the upgrade is in progress.


H. Technical Support and After-sales Service
Clicking on Support” from the Android homescreen gives you access to the following resources:
    a) Firmware update (requires X7 update.zip copied onto the X7’s internal storage / SD card)
    b) X7 The Quick start guide and this FAQ
    c) Access to FiiO’s homepage, FiiO’s official forum and FiiO’s head-fi forum for acquiring more info on the X7
    d) “Contact us” lists various methods by which you may contact FiiO’s technical support and after-sales service for privileged “one-on-one” answers to your queries.

Are Sennheiser Momentum Wireless headphones compatible with the X7?
The X7 won't find them, despite following the bluetooth connection instructions!

Hi

I have tested 2 different sets of Fiio X7 with distorted sound when using bluetooth to a few different bluetooth headsets

Is this a hardware or software issue?

Hi,
Does X7 support hi-speed Micro SD cards like Samsung pro+ or Sandisk Extreme with high data rate around 90 mbps read and 90 mbps write?

If not what are recommended micro sd cards?

Thanks and Regards,
Amol

Hi, in theory, X7 can work with this card although we have not yet got it to test. It is suggested to use Sandisk or Kingston sd card, which have been tested to be compatible well with x7.
