View Full Version : m3 remote compatible with X5? and where to buy it?
first of all i'm very sorry if this has been asked before!
did anyone of you X5 owners really ever tried to use the m3 remote for the X5? if so did it work? all i know so far is that the remote looks pretty much the same as the X5 remote.
and also does anyone know an online store in europe (best would be in germany) where you can purchase the remote?
thanx in advance!
The X5 uses the same remote as the M3.
I ordered one at
no word on when it will be delivered, it is 'ordered from the supplier.'
I had my small doubts as well, as I have no official information that this will indeed be the remote for x5. Everything I have seen so far, however, points @ that it is.
One of the reasons I ordered it as soon as I saw it is the price is very reasonable for a LCD remote. I suspect the final street price will be much higher when the X5 orders come in. This is what I really HATE about not having manufacturer's suggested prices on this stuff - the retailers will be ripping us off cuz they know we will want them regardless. One of my biggest reasons for not getting iriver H300, was the unavailability of LCD remotes, and the fact that the Swedish retailers who carried the non-LCD remote had the f#ck@n nerve to take almost US$60 + $15 S&H for the non-LCD one (Basically a piece of wire with a couple of plastic buttons. Sells in US for still ridiculously high $19.00, and should be included in the package instead of the stupid earbuds to start with)
thanx for the info Darkroom. i guess "Fjärrkontroll till M3" means remote control?! about 43€ that price is ok!
Yeah, that's the one... Sorry, I am so used to flipping languages on the net, it didn't even occur to me that the site is not in English.
I checked to see if there is information about shipping within EU, didn't find any. Their e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
thanx i'm gonna send them an email.
Cowon America does not list an X5 specific remote on their site (they have both colors of M3 remotes), but they told me in Email they will have it soon. I would expect the same for European distributors.
Ordered it Monday. It will be in my house Thursday.
Now, if only I could get the X5L to go with it already =o)
I have gotten my X5 yesterday from Audiolounge.nl, with the black m3 remote.
The remote works, as is the M3 cradle and little connector thingie from my old M3.
The display is awesome!
^^^^ thanx for the info!
i can't believe this. no german online shop sells the M3 remote. i searched everywhere. netherlands and a swiss online shop and cowonamerica offer it but they don't accept international orders! :(
