So I best the venerable @ClieOS on this one - if I'm not mistaken the E3 came before the E1 😁.
I think I might have an E3 first as well. Now that I recalled, E1 was a much later product. E5 should be the one followed E3. I am very sure however that I was the first person in the forum to got my hand on an E5. Good old days.

@ClieOS truly the good old days. Was an avid reader of your blog Inearmatters. I'm very grateful to you for rekindling my interest in earbuds especially the Blox E2c which was a great match with the Fiio E5 and its bass boost. At the time i bought almost every new Fiio gears since they so affordable. Now you've got me spending again with your great Portable Bluetooth Dac/Amp thread - leading me to getting the BTR3k, BTR5 and now the BTR7 😁.

@FiiO on firmware v1.71 the battery meter will go missing after the device is on for a while.
only way to resolve this is to restart the device
Dear friend,

Does the issue happen everytime? We will report to the engineer for check as well. Thanks for the kind feedback.

Best regards

@FiiO Dear friend, long time Fiio fan here (since the E3 amp at around 2009 - who remembers that!).
Just want to ask if you no longer have a distributor in Mauritius (an island in the Indian Ocean)? There is a store named One.O.One Multimedia which was your official stockist since 2017. Unfortunately they don't have any new Fiio gear on sale. I had to import the BTR7 and its was quite a hassle and costly for the shipping. Fortunately my unit did arrive safely and i'm really enjoying it (i do have a soft spot for the BTR5 over the BTR7 though but thats another story). Would be really sad if we could no longer procure Fiio gear locally.
Dear friend,

I checked with my colleague and found that the seller in Mauritius hasn't booked the BTR7 from us yet. :sweat_smile: And if you have found any other local seller which may be interested in selling this products, please feel free to contact us. Thanks in advanced!

Best regards

Yup the issues happen every time, but other than the battery meter missing, there seems to be no other issue at the moment.

Might i suggest to ask the engineer to add like a battery % on the device itself? :)
would be helpful to see the % on the device, rather than on the phone itself

Poland : mp3store.pl ?
Dear friend,

The seller is one of our agent in Poland. We will arrange the BTR7 to the Poland distributor soon. So you could get one from the local seller some time later.

Best regards

Btr7 can drive two earphones at the same time?
I tried btr5 which drives only one pair of phones at a time.
Well... at least for single-ended jacks, anybody can use a small 2-way splitter adaptor to plug in 2 pairs. Obviously the power would be reduced since it would be driving both pairs at the same time.

Something like this:

Amazon.com: Headphone Splitter Adapter,CableCreation

I don't know that such a thing exists for balanced headphone connections though. Probably not.

A quick impression on the BTR7:

Finally, after owning my first pair of IEMs and loving them (the Shuoer S12), I had put my Audeze Sines on the back burner. The Shuoer S12 had all the things I loved about the Sine, but were much easier to drive. I got the BTR7 to see how well they compete against my current dongle DAC champ, the Qudelix 5K. I had the Audeze Sine nearby, so this is what I chose to test the FiiO with before the Sines went back in the box. This BTR7 has a nice bit of grunt in it 😊. With the maximum volume being 60, I can get a very pleasing thump going at 40 to 44 depending on genre. I was listening to some old Busta Rhymes today (2nd & 3rd albums) and this unit sounds very, very promising. I may have to pull the Sine back up to co-lead duty if this keeps up. The Qudelix, although having the superior software UI of the two, made the Sines sound anemic. It felt as if the Sine was the outer limit of what the 5K had the ability to push. With the BTR7, there was none of that. I fully expected I was going to have this dongle DAC a few clicks from maximum to even get this headset to register; I’m glad to see that I was wrong. It was only a couple of hours, but I listen to this way longer than I had planned, or had time to. I’m going to let this burn-in for several hours, then take another listen with the Denon 9200s and the Shuoer S12 to get a better idea of what the sound quality is truly like.

Now, if you FiiO guys could only make portables that have more than 10hrs battery-life. I’d be very happy.
