Hi FiiO,

The X5III still suffers plenty of bugs:
- no sound when playing after a long pause (need to pause/play several times, sometimes move in the track)
- music resuming to the track that was first played 3 hours ago (track number is indicated as -1)
- sound volume changing all a sudden
- battery draining sometimes very fast for no reason
- bluetooth connection not stable

Only for the ones I personally found. When will we have a new firmware update? Have you completely abandonned us?

Thanks

Dear friend,

You could try to do a factory restore first.
If everything goes well, the new firmware will be released this month.
Sorry for bringing inconvenience to you.
Best regards

Hi,

I can confirm the following:
- no sound when playing after a long pause (need to pause/play several times, sometimes move in the track)
  
This seem to happen with an external SD card only. It looks like the firmware is always checking this one after a pause (one can see it in the folder view).
Without any card inside it works perfectly for me.
  
Also can confirm:
- battery draining sometimes very fast for no reason
Sometimes it is really a nightmare even if the player is not playing at all (but not switched off completely).
  
There are also several others:
- Does not react or takes a while after changing the headset to another one on balanced output.
- Display turns on by itself if plugged into USB and charging, starts at around 80%, not possible to turn the display off, it turns on immediately.
- Actual play time is nearly always wrong for tracks with variable bitrate, displayed time runs much more faster and is actually over even if the track still playing.
  
Regards

I absolutely agree with the above bugs and am disappointed in Fiio. It's been more than a year since I bought this device and it's still not completely usable. Fiio Music crushes, pause\play button still behaves strange.

I really hope that next firmware will finally fix the bugs as otherwise it will be the last Fiio device I've bought.

November is over, and it's almost the end of December. Any news when the update will be released?

Thank you for the quick response! No problem to wait, good to know that the device still has support and a new update will come.

I have no interest in the beta - the device runs okay at the moment, and i'll like to keep it that way - but maybe that others will pm you.

Enjoy your holidays / christmas!

Hello,
if the beta version is usable in sense of will not crash player completely or brick it, then I'd like to try it also. There are just too many issues which are really annoying.

FiiO already said in multiple threads on this forum that there's a beta available for testing (send a PM to one of the FiiO CS representatives) and that the final version will come out asap.

Besides that: all the "!!!!" look stupid. Just ask it in a polite way.

Hi guys,

Re-animating this thread because after complete reinstallation through the Windows software provided by FiiO and re-update and re-indexing of songs, I still have issues I did not have before. When I pause the music for a while, the control do not react anymore!!!! How normal is that? I have to light on the screen and press multiple times on play. Even then, the current playing song goes directly to the end and play the next one!!

Sometimes, I even have directly the FiiO Music song.

And now with version 1.2.3, after clearing the database I cannot build it again... It always fails, always. Even when scanning SD cards independently.

I tried a lot of things yesterday. It seems media scanning fails with some CUE files o_O I could not get my library back, cannot use my X5 normally anymore !!!

This morning, I tried the ultimate thing: copying just a few musics directly on the device, without inserting any SD card: scanning crashes!!!! Even using internal memory!!!! This X5, as it is now, is dead. Cannot even ethically resell it, that's incredible!

FiiO team, please hurry up, for I am not orienting potential buyers to your products

Music pauses when display sleeps  when using line out.

No issues when using headphone outputs.
