    I'm a user of the FiiO X5iii. Could someone please explain what the difference is between that device and this M11?

    Thanks mucho.

    M11 doesn't have as warm of a sound signature, but has 3GB of RAM as opposed to the x5iii's 1GB. The overall experience of the M11 is smoother and has more detail in the sound.

    I had the x5iii for about a week and, while I loved the sound signature, I had to return it and wait for a quicker device because I use Tidal. The M11 delivers.

    I understand about the X5III not being fast enough with Tidal, but playing music from its SD cards and using various music player apps was fast.

    I still found the overall performance a bit sluggish unless I was in the dedicated music mode.

    Looking forward to receiving mine soon

    Does using a balanced connection (either 2.5 or 4.4 mm) make the vocals sound forward? (I am sensitive to forward mids lol)

    Could always download the hiby app apk if you miss it. What's the size difference between the hiby r6 and the m11 please? Got an r6 but got one of the early ones with the rubbish wifi despite being replaced. Oh and what's the average battery life on the m11?

  7. Jujoe
    So the Hiby is 116 X 66 X 15 mm where as the FiiO is bigger at 130 x 70.5 x 15.5 mm

    I'm gonna try sticking with the fiio app for a week see if I wanna keep it.

    I was wondering about this Viper HiFi app too...

    Sure, it's a better sounding, better looking, better performing dap in every way. The end. Seriously though, tons of comparisons just in this thread, and on FiiO's site as well.

    No, but depending on your IEM/headphone balanced often improves stage/separation and of course gives you more power/voltage.

    You can download viper audio from their US website but it
    I've tried to use the viper app off their US website, but both times it needs the device to be rooted. It would be good for those who want a deep bass boost like cowon has. Chinese one obviously works, not that I need a bass boost with my stuff I just remember it from the x5iii and it had some neat effects.

    Also I'm growing fonder of fiio music- it does sound better than hiby music , because of the android stack. It needs a few more tweaks though.

    I'm also really confused with reviews ok review saying the bass is soft and the unit can't do fast EDM or rock properly?? The bass on mine hits deep and hard when it's supposed to and it has a fast clean decay and attack. Nothing gets buried no matter how complex or fast the track is. Wonderful resolution and plenty of space between stuff.

    I get we all hear things differently, but soft bass and a slower speed suited better to acoustic music isn't the m11. Unless the 3.5 Jack has those characteristics, I've only used balanced.

    And to the person who asked about this and the x5iii, the m11 feels and sounds like a flagship dap- even though it's not supposed to be. :wink:

    So is the Viper HiFi that is preinstalled the same as Viper Audio?
  13. exitfire401
    Yeah, just noticed it for the first time when a track by Børns popped up. Really odd!

    Wait there is a viper installed? I didn't see it. The viper off the US site is older and similar to what was on the x5iii. It just doesn't work. I don't know what viper hi fi is.

    Congrats on the new player! What's your impression on the sound quality compared to the M7/M9? Do you use balanced or SE?
