The beta firmware version FW3.0.13_beta for the X7(Android 5.1) is now available!

Kindly note that this is a beta version and might not be stable enough compared to the stable versions. So please think carefully before upgrading with this firmware.

If you have already upgraded the X7's firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, you can download the OTA firmware package, transfer it to the X7 or micro SD card, and upgrade manually through the Technical support app on the X7.
Download link:
FW3.0.13beta OTA firmware upgrade package
(Backup download link from Dropbox: click here)
>>How to upgrade   (see method 2: Manual update via update zip file)

If you have not yet upgraded the firwmare to the FW3.0beta or a later version, please download the X7 firmware upgrade tool package and use the upgrade tool to upgrade the firmware.
Download link:
X7 Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW3.0.13beta
(Backup download link from Dropbox: click here)
(The upgrade tool needs to be run on a comupter with Windows system, and please kindly READ this upgrade instruction before the upgrade)

You can post in this thread if you have any issues with this version. But if you encounter serious problems, you may consider flashing back to a stable release.
Download link for stable firmware FW2.0:  
X7 Firmware Upgrade Tool with FW2.0 (>>backup download link)


The following improvements and changes have been made to the FW3.013beta compared to the FW3.0.12beta

1. Added new option for Resume mode: remembering song position;
2. Added ViPER EFFECT plug-in (in FiiO Music->Settings);
3. Improved the speed of skipping through folders;
4. Fixed issue where in Random play mode, FiiO music would continue to play the songs repeatedly after shuffling all the songs in the list;
5. Fixed issue where when playing the Favorites/playlists, the order of the list will change after re-entering the Now Playing menu;
6. Fixed issue where under Pure Music mode, the countdown number of the off timer for FiiO Music would not go down to zero;
7. Fixed issue where the duplicate song names in a CUE sheet would not be removed;
8. Fixed issue where some track names were displayed incorrectly.

The ViPER EFFECT plug-in is developed by ViPER's Audio and embedded to FiiO Music. Some of its basic functions can be used for free while the upgraded functions need to be paid before using. And please kindly note that currently its settings can only take effect when the player is connected to the Internet through WiFi. For more information of it, you may visit the ViPER's Audio website: http://vipersaudio.com/blog/

I'm very satisfied with AM3 balanced output. it is best sound for me. but some problem....

hising noise is increased at beta firmware. specially increasd AM3 balanced output.
AM1 and AM3 un-balanced output is good , but AM3 balanced output's hising noise is very high during connected relay... Please sound check with AM3 balanced output also

I agree with you. I'm not waiting for plug-ins. I want a good DAP.

Yeah all these added features before fixing core function is wrong.  If I want to change the sound I'll change my headphones or IEM's.

I hope Fiio will realize that we as users are not waiting for Viper. But in a X7 with a great sound and a bug-free UI.

In addition, I must say that the sound quality is fortunately at the level of version 3.0.11. But can still be a lot better.

There is a problem with the order of tracks in an album. One time correct and suddenly not. I have no idea how to get this right. I've tried everything.

I agree that the sound in this version is superior to version 3.0.11. However, third-party applications sound much worse than before. It seems that they once again began to play through Android.

The sound is definitely better. slightly warmer. but with the loss of some dynamics. this is not necessary. warm and dynamic sound can go together

Deezer still does not work properly after 13 firmware updates. Counter stays at zero, music plays till end of the song. Only then the counter starts counting down but no sound can be heard till the counter is counted down. Only then a new song starts. Its ridiculous. I also was forced to update as stable 2.0 firmware simple did not work properly anymore due to all google play errors. Its a shame having spend a shitload of money on a device, bought all modules and only having had 2 months of pleasure from it.

Having an open mind I've bought most of the viper addons and on balanced out the sound is far superior without Viper into Audeze LCD-XC. Where it comes into its own is with phones lacking base or needing an equalzer or if your taste is banging dance music (i had to ask the children ). If you like classical music and want a bit of valve amp tone/warmth the valve amp is nice. The one downside is, if you are out if wifi range making any changes is not possible, unfortunately for me 98% of the time (and the wifi is a bit noisy still). So I'll probably not use it much but it has its place if you're a tinkerer. But you can switch it off and forget it is there.

FW 13 has a better sound than 11 or 12 clearer I think. Still a few Chinese characters popping up mosly in obscure classical music  (but they do even on an ipod and a sony).  I can not comment on streeming apps ........ poor wifi coverage ...... ah to live in a city....

But please Fiio can you get the scanning issue sorted. You are getting there............well done

I agree with you. However, it is important to me good sound Tidal application. On 3.0.13, it sounds very bad.

Hi, peterb.

So compared to the previous Dropbox download link, to save file directly this time will be faster or not?
As we said before, we are planning to bulid another file server for better and stable service.
If this download link for FW3.0.13beta can not work or the download speed is slower, pls let us know, and we can provide another downlink from Dropbox for you.

Hi, Yongchul.

Firstly thanks for your feedback.
So, the hissing noise you mentioned is increased from FW3.0beta or just at this beta firmware FW3.0.13beta?

Hi, Martin.

When running the previous firmware, such as FW3.0.12beta, the tracks in this album can be sorted by track number correctly?
How about other albums at this FW3.0.13beta? The same issue also happen on them?

If possible, please provide more details, then we can analyse this issue further.
