While we're a bit upset at Korean manufacturer Daeyang E&C
for swiping our hard-earned DJing name (guess now we'll have to resort to our second string monicker, DJ Tanner); its new MC Square X1 device should calm us down if it works as promised, however, packing an array of relaxation tools to back up its standard DAP functions. Supposedly, the X1 reduces stress and anxiety through "concentration enhancement," which of course necessitates the wearing of goofy-looking strobe light goggles (check 'em out after the break) while you enjoy an array of soothing nature sounds. Unfortunately, while it's tricked out with the chill-out tools, the X1's DAP capabilities are decidedly run-of-the-mill, with only 512MB of internal memory and a miniSD slot to add up to 2GB more, along with an FM radio and a squint-inducing 1.3-inch OLED display. Though we doubt many of you will be buying this one just to use as an MP3 player -- with a $439 price tag, Daeyang's definitely going after a whole other market.
