    Reply to review by 'Richiyaado' on item 'HiBy R3 Pro'

    Good review! I presume it's for the Pro, and not the Pro Saber version.

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I've had an occasional issue with the regular R3 pro. A couple of times, I've had to update the db twice before the newly-added music will appear.

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    Instead of Tidal, I use Qobuz, but the HiBy R3 Pro works for either. Make sure your WiFi is turned on, then hold down the fourth icon from the left on the top menu (either the Tidal or Qobuz icon) until a little gray dialogue box appears where you choose one or the other. Select Tidal and you...

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I think what I might do is carefully letter 'Saber' on the side of my regular HiBy R3 Pro, and because my memory is so bad, I won't know which version I have!

    The great thing about my iPod Classic (what I purchased the R3 Pro to replace) was that Apple stopped making them, so I used it for years without having to obsess over not having the latest model... Now, though, I have to obsess again!

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    Well, the whole point of me buying the HiBy R3 Pro was to replace my much-used, but increasingly fiddly iPod Classic without spending a bundle. So I bought one and, maybe the day after I received it via Amazon, I saw the announcement of the 'Saber' version... Sheesh! So maybe in 5-6 years, I'll...

    I found the address for WWOZ... the independent, listener-supported station here in New Orleans (and Guardians of the Groove), and successfully added it to the radio.txt list on my HiBy R3 Pro. Here it is, if anyone else might like to add it: WWOZ, http://wwoz-sc.streamguys.com/wwoz-hi.mp3 Be...

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I'm no audiophile, either (my ears are too old). I purchased the R3 Pro to replace my 7th gen iPod Classic because I got tired of fooling with it, updating it, etc. With the array of headphones I have (Koss Porta Pros <---> Meze 99 Noir), I'd say the bass is better when listening to my own music...

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    Okay, after fiddling around, I discovered what the problem was. Somehow, the time and date settings for the Hiby were lost, and after setting the proper date and time again in system settings, Qobuz worked again.

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    Until today, my Hiby R3 Pro was working well with everything… I subscribe to Qobuz, and today when I tried to listen to a playlist, I got an error message that reads: HTTP error code:400 Bad request I have tried logging in and out of both my WiFi and my Qobuz account, but nothing seems to...

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I guess this would be the Hiby R3 Pro Pro then, leaving me stuck with just the plain ol' pro.

    Am I entered to win the headphones now? Or do I have to run over to YouTube to enter?

    FiiO Music Survey Questionnaire

    I'm on IOS and don't use the music app, but I did get a Fiio BTR5 recently, and use the Fiio Control app for that... it seems to work very well. I don't really know what difference the various filters make so, as a Leonard Cohen fan, I picked slow.

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I don't think the R3 Pro supports Spotify... only Qobuz and Tidal (plus some internet radio). I've never subscribed to any of the streaming services beyond the trial periods, but do sometimes listen to free Spotify on my phone... mainly Spotify Stations. I like it, but could do without them...

    Hiby R3 Pro Portable Bluetooth DAP

    I'm reallly just trying out streaming since I got the Hiby... past the trial periods for Tidal and Qobuz, I don't know yet whether I'll continue to subscribe to either. There are dropouts from time to time, and there is no way to reduce the file size (except subscribing to the cheaper version of...
