# HiFi True Wireless, FiiO FW5# What kind of TWS earphones can be called HiFi true wireless ones?

:musical_note:96kHz/24bit Snapdragon Sound + 96K/24bit, up to 900Kbps LHDC transmission

:musical_note:Flagship TWS chip Qualcomm QCC5141 + independent AKM DAC/Amp AK4332: It completely breaks through the performance limits of a traditional integrated chip with both Bluetooth and DAC functions. The results are as low as 0.0014% distortion, up to 108dB SNR and 104dB dynamic range, fully reaching the basic requirements of HiFi audio performance.

:musical_note:1 Dynamic Driver 2 Balanced Armature HiFi acoustic structure: US Knowles balanced armatures and FiiO-developed dynamic driver combined to succeed in an uncompromising acoustic solution.

:musical_note:After three years of self-developing experience in TWS software and hardware for the UTWS1/3/5 models, user-friendly using experience and reliable quality are well ensured.

:musical_note:Rare four physical side buttons with ultimate convenience: rejecting unintended touches from the moment you snatch them up.

FiiO FW5, the integrator of HiFi TWS.

Physical buttons! :metal:

Also interesting that the shell looks more like the FD5 than the FH5, even though this is also a hybrid config.

Many users love the FD5's look as well. Besides, the shell is reticulate so it could hide the microphone better. :L3000:

FiiO 2022 new product schedule(From JamesFiiO)
....
(10) True Wireless and all-in-one desktop digital audio streamer and DAC/Amp preview

This chapter is the last one for FiiO's 2022 new product introductions. We hope you can understand that changes may happen to the new plan. The available time may be changed, and there may be other new products that are not included in it. This is only a general reference.
In such a tough period, we expanded the scale of development and production, hired more engineers and technicians, sales and customer service supporters, etc. In a sense, it is also a kind of confidence in the future and a return to society. We tried our best to contribute to the recovery of society from the pandemic and economic attacks. All of these stem from the stable business philosophy of FiiO's management team and all members. Just like FiiO's new products, it may not be the best one, but it must be the most trustworthy one in terms of function, sound quality, build quality, etc.
1, TWS true wireless, see the picture below, expected to be released in July
It supports Snapdragon Sound with 96kHz/24bit transmission and LHDC with up to 900KbPS bit rate, using Qualcomm flagship TWS chip QCC5141 + AKM independent DAC/Amp AK4332. It completely breaks through the performance bottleneck of the DAC chip integrated into the Bluetooth chip. The lowest distortion is as low as 0.0014%, the signal-to-noise ratio is as high as 108dB, and the dynamic range is 104dB, which fully reaches the basic audio performance requirements of HiFi devices. Moreover, it comes with an uncompromising acoustic structure of one self-developed dynamic driver and two Knowles balanced armatures. After three years of iterations from the UTWS1/3/5, we have accumulated experience in TWS software and hardware self-engineering, achieving comfortable operating and listening experience and reliable quality. The rare four physical side buttons help to reject unintended touches. Get ready right away once you have it.
As we know, true wireless is a big market, but it is a market that is not commonly accessible to HiFi devices. The most important reason is that it is difficult to make products that are obviously different from TWS products developed by major consumer electronics or mobile phone manufacturers, and let audiophiles truly experience the differences. From the hot sales of our UTWS1 and UTWS5, we can see that what audiophiles need is TWS HiFi devices. The success of our UTWS series, especially the UTWS5, shows that FiiO can make TWS products with excellent sound quality that consumers agree with.
If you like the convenience of TWS and expect better sound quality, you can keep an eye on it.

will it do LDAC, will this be a sub $250 unit?
In the previous post it says it will do Snapdragon Sound and LHDC so seems they went that route instead of LDAC. If the A&K single driver 4332 powered TWS is $300 and Noble's triple hybrid is $349, I am pretty sure this will not be under $250. probably a little wishful thinking there. Things are not getting cheaper with things in the world being what they are right now.

Since the technology reason, LDAC Bluetooth codec could not be supported in FW5 currently. But we will make effort to check whether it could be updated in the future.
