Would the btr3 be able to drive hadphones like 80ohm, or just for esrbuds?
Just wanted to say I received my BTR1 today, bought at Fiio’s store in Ali. I’m glad with the product, at least the tests I ran with my Xiaomi phone, iPad, and earphones and speakers went well. I’m still seriously surprised of how tiny it is.
I’m still trying to decide if I like the sound effect, though. Not a fan of it yet, but it may be due to my audio settings.
More info on BTR3, for those interested:
Looks like: AAC, aptX, aptX HD, aptX LL, HWA, LDAC, and SBC
I guess they mean AAC instead of ACC? HWA is surprising, because except for some Huawei Smartphones nobody on earthy seems to be using this codec...
In any case, I'll never buy a FiiO product again, immediately after its release. I still hate the fact that my early BTR1 doesn't support AAC, even though FiiO sold it, claiming that it had support for AAC, then later revealing it didn't and then releasing a "v2" of the product, which has all the features, which the first version should have had already. I don't want to pay the full price just to be a beta tester...
Since the BTR3 is more complex with all these codecs, I'll wait for many user reports, who test the compatibility with smartphones, audio players etc., and see which codecs are really working.
Yes, that should b AAC, not ACC obviously...I copied and pasted without checking! Oops!
The FiiO BTR3 is now available to pre-order in the UK/EU from Advanced MP3 Players. We should have some available to ship out within the next couple of days.
Just tried to order via paypal and paypal took my details, then returned me to your site with no order completed?
Did the same to me, several times!!
I just bought a uBTR and am looking for a comparison between this and the BTR3. All I’ve seen so far is BTR1 vs BTR3 but not vs. uBTR
Used the card! that worked OK.
Agreed, the es100 has the far superior arrangement. Shame FiiO always needs a few versions to figure things out, like how you would wear a clip.
I understand, now, why Fiio needs both ports in the same side, but I still do not understand why these could not be pointing upwards, rather than being at the bottom?
Couldn't you have a clip that swivels, one that you can twist around, then people who prefer the outputs at the top are happy as well as those who prefer them at the bottom?
I know Fiio often revises its products to much my chagrin - I bough the BTR1 V1, but sold it as no AAC and I'm only likely to be using not with an iPhone in the near future.
The ES100 looks very interesting, but it has its ports on the side so I'd really need a right angle plug. It's also nearly twice as much as the BTR3!!! I've also heard reports that the clip is rather flimsy?
Question: Isn't balanced a bit overkill for wireless / Blutooth audio?
Since the ES100 also can be used as a usb dac/amp - no. It’s not overkill.
I also have my CIEMs with a balanced cable - like most of my regular iems too and its just nice not have to use an adapter and/or different cable to use them as a headset with the es100. It’s offering more options plus it’s driving them with way more power which is always a good idea even when the transmission is wireless. Properly driven headphones sound better no matter what.
