    FiiO BTR3-The World' First Bluetooth Headphone Amplifier, SBC/AAC/aptX/aptX LL/aptX HD/LDAC/HWA (LHDC)

    @FiiO. I tried your suggestion and and unfortunately it didn't help. However I was able to test the device with a Samsung S3 tab and the issue is not present. I guess this means it is something to do with the S8 handset rather than the BTR3. I'll continue to try and find a solution. Thanks!

    Thank you Fiio, i'll give this a try. I'll also see if I can get hold of another Android device to test further. Kind regards!

    Hi guys and @FiiO I'm not sure if anyone can help please. When using my BTR3 connected to my Samsung S8 and using the LDAC codec I've started to notice some distortion. I've had this combo for well over a year now and it has always been perfect until recently. I don't have another Android...

    New: EarStudio HE100 High-Resolution Earphones

    I was really excited to hear about this product. I have an ES100 and it really was a game changer for me. I did not really take Bluetooth as a serious option for music until I used this product. The versatility, portability, power and of course sound quality impressed me so much. Adding to this...

    Hi there, I’m actually using the same setup as you 90% of the time and I have to admit I have never felt the volume to be lacking. I just did a quick check and cranked the BTR3 right up. To my ears this is very uncomfortable and not something I would want to sustain. I also tried plugging...

    Hi there, I haven’t used the BTR1K, but have been using the BTR3 for a few months now and I love it. This product has really changed my perception of what is possible with Bluetooth audio. My personal view is that you shouldn’t get too hung up on the codecs either. I have been using AAC to my...

    Hi guys, I just wanted to share my updated thoughts. Initially I was disappointed with the connectivity issues compared to the ES100 as I mentioned. But after using it daily for a couple of weeks. I have found it to be absolutely fine. Walking around with the product in my pocket i'm...

    I haven't carried out any scientific tests, but for my use case described above or out and about with the device in one pocket and my handset in the other I have certainly found the ES100 to have a more solid connection. I want to be clear though, the BTR3 is far from unusable in this regard...

    Hi guys, This is actually my first post on Head-fi, but I am a long time lurker! I have been especially interested in this and the ES100 thread. I own both devices and they have made me realise that Bluetooth is absolutely a viable option at last! As my name suggests I am about simplicity. I...
