Very happy with this player M3X Shanling.
Super sound Hi Res, I'm fan of this brand!

Alastair Dracup
Shanling M3X

Pros: Good value, great sound, and form factor. Small and light enough to carry about. I like the main Shanling app, and the ability to turn off android. Balanced connection gives options. Cons: Takes a little while to boot. Battery drains strangely quickly from top to 90%, and then lasts pretty well. Standby retention is OK but not great. Android 7.0 is slightly bereft of features and renders itself obsolete on some apps, meaning support is a concern. RAM is slightly under-powered, making some apps not as smooth as I would like. (Amazon Music scrolls in a jittering way) Not amazingly responsive. Would love to have had an FM radio tuner like my Sony NW-A55 - hope they can unlock the tuner in the Qualcom chip somehow.

Best price anywhere i looked can't wait to buy !!!

Excellent mid range DAP

The Shanling M3X has excellent tonality and timbre. Although I have not closely monitored the battery life I would say it’s very close to performing as advertised. That was one of the reasons I picked up this unit. The design is a bit plain and although the buttons have a solid and good tactile feel to them, the edges of the buttons feel a bit sharp. I don’t really mind it as it gives confidence your finger or thumb is squarely aligned on the buttons. The operating performance is on par with a unit in the price category. Not nearly as quick to boot as my M11 or R6 2020 but respectable for the price. Overall I enjoy the M3X and recommend it to those looking in the 350 dollar price point.

Thick but Small DAP that delivers the power

I am super impressed by this little DAP. Its comfortable in the hand to hold and use. The physical buttons are very are very responsive and have a satisfying click when you press them down and the same for the volume knob and button press on that. The Dual Sabre DACs on here are honestly no slouch with all the IEMs and Headphones I use ranging from Moondrop Arias, Koss headphones, ATH-M50x and even an 80 ohm Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. It ran all of them without flinching in the DAC Turbo mode easily in their respective low or hi gain mode. Also using a balanced cable for my IEMs showed that once you make the upgrade if you have really sensitive and more clinical sounding IEMs you will hear the difference but the ability to put a 3.5mm in and just set the DAC Turbo to use both has been great and at this point almost leave it on that mode exclusively. The battery life is great on it with a really solid performance even in the DAC Turbo mode which draws more power. I think the biggest win for me personally is the fact that this is an Android DAP that you can install the Google Play store on which was a godsend for me since I have some local media but also a lot of my music is done streaming through apps like: Spotify, Youtube Music, Amazon Music and maybe will try some others like Tidal and Deezer later but the fact that its a Android backend means no limitations including if you want Youtube or customize it the way you expect. I will say though the Prime mode where it uses the Shanling app for local music has not been great though so i leave mine in Android Mode since I use Pulsar+ for my local media playback since it does a better job organizing and showing my music thats also less buggy with all its features while still having a good UI. I can highly recommend this to anyone looking for a slightly chunkier Android DAP and wants something that is in the all rounder category in my opinion

Shipping FAQ

Which countries do you ship to?

We are generally able to ship to most countries via Express Shipping, and many countries via Standard Shipping. You may clarify this with our team to check whether Standard Shipping is available to your country.

We cannot ship to addresses that are "PO boxes or APO/FPO".

*Note: Generally, we can only do Selected Shipping to India and Russia. We can only do Express Shipping to Africa, Argentina, Hawaii, Kuwait, Mauritius, Montenegro and Sri Lanka, to name a few.
This may be subjected to changes due to unpredictable issues such as Covid, war, and etc.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping is 15-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 270USD, Express Shipping is free*. 

*This applies for most countries. However, large items such as headphones and desktop DAC/AMPs (e.g. HarmonicDyne G200, MUSICIAN MDP-2, and etc.) are excluded.

Shipping fees exclude import taxes or processing fees that may be applicable for your country. Linsoul is not responsible for such fees. Should you refuse to pay the tax/customs fees, shipping fees will still be deducted from the amount paid for the two-way freight charges. The cost of the freight charges may be more than the amount reflected on your order due to tax and other miscellaneous fees.

Some parcels claimed to be “returned to the seller” may be destroyed by the post office or customs officers when buyers refuse to accept their parcels or fail to pay for their taxes. No refund will be processed for such cases.

Standard Shipping via YunExpress is a tax-inclusive option for some countries. However, Linsoul will not be responsible for additional administrative or handling fees charged by your local courier company or customs. Please kindly check this with your local customs.

For certain remote areas, there may be additional charges via Express Shipping. We will contact you if there is a need to make additional payments. 
Please contact us before placing an order, should you have any queries regarding shipping.

  • For Standard Shipping, it takes about 2-4 weeks for items to be delivered after shipping out. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country, its customs and other factors.* The duration for transit is something beyond our control. Linsoul will not be making refunds for such cases. Please consider an upgrade to Express Shipping or keep the waiting time in mind.
  • For Express Shipping, it takes about 3-7 days for items to be delivered after shipping out.
