Many thanks.

I do not know if this applies for both models.

What driver do you use in Windows, Microsoft or Fiio?

Does it prompt you to be in charge mode or not, and if so what do you select there?

@Can someone else confirm if this somehow also should work for FiiO BTR5 2021?
Dear friend,

Yes, the BTR5 2021 can connect to two devices(one via Bluetooth and the other via USB) at the same time. And you could switch the input priority via the FiiO Control app: https://forum.fiio.com/note/showNoteContent.do?id=202109101657246451149

Best regards

It is working :)

I have one question, I have Office 365 on both computer and phone, and if I am in a MS Teams call on computer, and receive for example an e-mail this gives an notification on my phone, and due to the phone being Bluetooth connected to the Fiio, the sound in the MS Teams call is muted for several seconds, is there any way to shorten the mute period?

I just got one of these. The iFi Go Blu was also on my potentials list but at nearly twice the price and no specific feature upgrade the BTR5 2021 won out over it. iOS app support was also a factor in Fiio’s favor.

This is a great little box. So far I’m running it single ended into a set of Hifiman Deva Pros and it’s working perfectly. Setup on the device was very simple and the fine tuning in the app is a nice addition. I like being able to customize resistance and sensitivity for specific phones. It sounds very good so far too. I don’t hear any hiss and it’s signature must be very flat because the tonality of the Deva Pro is the same wired as it is over the BTR5 2021.

Hello,
I was interested in knowing when the new version of this bluetooth dac/amp will come out, maybe btr6 or btr5k (I don't know), with a better microphone maybe and with more power and battery, do you already have it in the plans?, thanks.
If you guys don't even plan on it... I guess I'd rush to buy this 2021 version.

BTR6 is impossible, FiiO never uses even numbers for its models :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

To be honest i don't like this design very much, it takes the form of the M17, suitable for an object of that size but not for such a small one. I think the design of the BTR5 is far more beautiful

Resistance and sensitivity are there for you to fill and get an idea for the power output, it's not for customizing the sound of the phones... Have fun.

To be clear, do those settings affect how the BTR5 interacts electronically with headphones in any way, or do they affect the power delivery at all? If not I don't see their purpose.
