So it's fine when music is playing?

Yes and no. I tested it today, and at low volumes where the music is playing and no longer present, I presume the hissing is still there. When the music is turned up the hissing doesn't increase in volume but I would say it's still there in the background.

It still sounds good, gives the IT01 a good thump, but the pause between tracks in TIDAL is enough to drive me insane when I hear the hissing.

This little gizmo makes my Mee P1 shine. These earphones have always been under-performing with the other gear I have. Never thought this was possible with the lossy bluetooth data transfer.

Iems with a higher sensitivity on the other hand create hiss and other sound artefacts. I hope next generation(s) will be able to find a solution for that problem.

Definitely a thumbs up for the BTR1.

Dear friend,

Because of the particularity of Bluetooth transmission, the background noise of the current Bluetooth DAC/headphones would be relatively larger.

But we would still try our best to reduce this noise in later generation. :left_facing_fist:

Best regards

Dear friend,

Our engineer told us that it is recommended to turn off the Bluetooth of the device you don't use. The tip sound would stop if the disconnection is longer than 3 minutes generally.
We will consider the problem with those tip sound in our later products as well.
Sorry if bringing inconvenience to you.

Best regards

Thanks for the response. Why make a device that doesn't have updatable firmware? I guess there is already a planned succession of this model with another. I will be looking into competitors that are updating/refining their products instead.

Hopefully the next BTR model will work well with sensitive IEM's.

Dear friend,

Because of the particularity of Bluetooth transmission, the background noise of the current Bluetooth DAC/headphones would be relatively larger.

Quite interestingly, I decided to test something I saw in the ES100 thread.

I switched from AptX to SBC (my BTR1 is v.1 so no AAC)... no hiss.

Sound noticeably has less separation, but for my uses (background noise in the office or exercising) this doesn't bother me at all.

Just worth noting - must be something about AptX? Wonder if something can test the same for AAC as well.

Overall quite pleased with it now since I was someone limiting it more casual use where I can use less sensitive over ear headphones!

I just discovered Fiio BTR1 online, I have some KZ iem pairs that I love and an HTC U11 (and soon U12+), the given USB C dongle is good with Dolby mods but I am told Razer Phone USB C adapter is much better, though it costs about 40$ in France VS this Fiio BT adapter which is just 20$ more, so here my questions:
-Is it Aptx HD compatible? it doesn't have a aptx HD logo but the specs are vastly enough for it no?
-Would it beat a USB C to AUX adaptor?
-Will the clip stick well on any clothes like Adidas climacool? (I am asking because I have a Sony SBH50 that is either too heavy or the clip was slipping on adidas tech tshirts)

-Yes, AptX HD.
-¯\_(ツ)_/¯
-The clip is not very strong, but I think more so it depends how, and what orientation you are clipping it on the shirt. The BTR1 is fairly lightweight, btw.

I'm pretty sure that the btr1 supports APTX, but not APTXHD.
