Folks, I am planning to sell my F9pros (as I'm completely happy with F9 origs for transparency and FH1 for bass).
So if anybody is interested: PM me (will ship across Europe, preferably Germany).

But nevertheless: have a bit more time left with 'em would also be of interest in order to test the Q5...
Still waiting for the tour item coming

Our review on FiiO F9 is live! Quite a lovely IEM, which comes in an excellent package, at an excellent price! There are many other options out there, like F9Pro, but if your budget is quite limited, and if you want to find a great bang for the buck, we invite you to read more about F9!

I was not checking Head Fi for while but better late than never.

Excellent review as usual George. I really love your comparisons and pairing, they really help.

Hey hey. I just tried Shure SE215 but I was really disappointed with the clarity and how muddy they sounded.

I noticed that the F9 is new and in a similar price range, would it be a considerable improvement? Also, how's isolation?

I've also been looking at the Pinnacle P2 and iBasso IT01.

Shure SE215 is "Pro" earphones. Sound is not musical, but its comfortable for musical repetition.
Pinnacle P2 isn't so good as P1, if you look for MEE, I can recommend P1. But draw attention that they have only 1 driver.
iBasso IT01 - well 1-driver midrange earphones.
Fiio F9 - I recommend the Pro version. Very good and comfortable 3-drivers earphones.

IT-01 vs F9Pro makes a hard decision :)

Both are amazing

Any news about the BTR3? In November someone from the FiiO team said something like "in 6 Months" or so. If that's still true, it shouldn't be too long until an announcement. But learning about a release Date or more technical details about the BTR3 would be awesome, because so far I don't see any sort of competition, there aren't really similar mobile Bluetooth amps.

I hope it'll be really good and have a really good DAC and amp circuitry to drive In-Ears like a Westone UM3 or the better Shure models. Would be sweet. if that thing was a truly nerdy thing that offers an high-end DAC and Amp.

We are testing the engineer sample of BTR3 now, and all the features have been finished but we are working in the RF , anyway, we should release it in June . also there will have another model call BTR5 in the future with BAL output and better DAC/AMP, the BTR3 used the same AKM4376A as BTR1.

Are you guys trying to take all my money? Guess I need to put the BTR5 my wish list! Hopefully the price is competitive with that one that was on Kickstarter. I trust Fiio to get it right, and a balanced output is not easy to find.
