Portable, Stylish, Slim Design
iAUDIO X5, with its super-compact slim design is not only convenient to carry, but also stylish with a high-quality aluminum external finish on most of the unit.
Portable HDD type MP3 Player with a Super Huge Storage Capacity
15,000 songs (4 minutes each, 128 kbps) in a nearly unparalleled choice of formats, from MP3 and WMA to linear (uncompressed, CD-quality) WAV files, Egg Vorbis files (which sound a bit better than MP3 for files of comparable size), as well as FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec, compressed but designed for 1:1 encode/decode). The X5 can recognize up to 4,000 folders and 20,000 individual files, and its super power-saving circuit provides up to 14 hours continuous playback on a full charge.
Built-in Lithium Battery for Maximum Play Time
A super power saving circuit is used to provide a long playback time. A continuous playback of up to 14 hours is possible after a full charge. (based on the company's test environment)
Strong Music Format Support
It supports MP3, OGG, WMA, WAV files, as well as FLAC (a lossless compressed codec). The first player in Korea to support this format, and only the second in the world!
It's possible to convert various video files to MPEG4 up to 15 FPS using JetAudio. The transcoded video file can be played back on iAUDIO X5.
Convenient Text and Image Viewer
You can view both text and image files on iAUDIO X5. You can view text files while listening to music.
OTG (USB Host) Feature
You can import photos taken from a digital camera to iAUDIO, and view them from iAUDIO using the USB Host feature of iAUDIO X5. (*Certain digital cameras are not supported.)
High-Quality Voice Recording
With the built-in, high-fidelity microphone, iAUDIO can record voice at the level of dedicated voice recorders. You can record important meetings or lectures using this feature.
Direct Encoding (Line-in)
iAUDIO provides direct encoding by which you can record output from an external audio device at a 1:1 ratio. This means that you can connect the recording terminal and the output terminal of an external audio device with a bi-directional stereo cable for recording. Using this feature, you can receive the direct input from audio devices such as a walkman, MD (mini disk), old LP phonograph, or TV, and record them with iAUDIO.
