    Yes, a new dedicated cable will be made. It may be released in November or so.

    Wait, so you can bypass charging if you modify a cable? The Q1MKII works with the S8, I've tested it, but it drains the battery; does anyone know if you can get a cable already modified? FiiO this seems like something you could do and package as an S8 DAC/AMP and capture an even larger market?

    Hi,
    According to our testsand former feedbacks of FiiO E18, the USB output of some Android phones are not so standard, and it will also change with different firmware versions of the Android phone. So whether Q1 Mark II can work normally for the Android phones depends on the Android phone, instead of Q1 Mark II. So we may not do more for the support of Android phone. :frowning2:
    Best regards

    That's your choice, but you are missing out on a huge market, Android devices account for around 86 percent of the market.
     
  6. Brooko Contributor
    That's sales figures from a moment in time and probably doesn't reflect actual user market share - https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnko...5-to-230-bigger-than-we-thought/#2c31b34f5890

    And how many devices does FiiO have to sell to make it work. I don't think they're throwing the baby out with the bathwater here.

    One of the biggest issues with Android is the fact that it can be so configurable, and therefore so difficult to make sure hardware pairs properly. With iOS its relatively easy. So if you're looking for a target market, and have iOS removing the headphone jack, easy to comply with and works all the time

    vs

    Android keeping the jack, hit and miss integration, and possibility of annoying people through no fault of your own.

    Which makes more sense at the moment? If Android actually ever starts imposing standards, things might change. In the meantime, I personally think FiiO made a good business choice ......

    Hey, don’t forget about the 35 Blackberry users left in the world! Haha

    How does one get spare Lightning to micro USB cables as those don’t seem easy to find? Alternatively could one use the Lightning micro USB adapter and add a micro USB to micro USB cable?
     
  9. FiiO
    Hi,
    If you would like an additional Lightning to micro USB cable comes with the Q1MKII, you can contact support@fiio.net for help.
    Lightning micro USB adapter? Do you mean the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit? This may be available. But the micro USB cable you use is required including OTG function as well.
    Best regards

    Thanks for the reply. It would have been great if additional wires for purchase were on your online stores, for example, the one at AliExpress and that the price was stated there as well.

    In any event, based on your suggestion, I attached an old OTG cable I had lying around and the Apple CCK and it works. Thanks again.

    So hope this will help someone to decide... Recieved Q1 MKII today, I have Samsung S8, FiiO F5 earphones and previously was using it with FiiO A3 and A5.

    The Q1 works like a charm with Samsung S8 using micro USB to USB-C cable I bought for around 5 Euros. Yes, it is charging the Q1 and so it drains the battery faster.

    My personal feelings so far (mostly listening to FLAC Indie Rock, Alt Rock)...I listen mostly in the office to focus or on the go.

    FiiO A3 - Simple to use, good sound, terrible interference when connected to phone
    FiiO A5 - Nice sound, too powerful mid-oriented bass boost, too large to carry outside

    FiiO Q1 MkII - Extremely variable, most (!) enjoyable sound, punchier bass boost (finally), balanced output - Works best for me combined with FiiO F5, definetely worth the money and just as small as A3 but much better looking and sounding device. If you want to kick your phone output a little, this device does it more than well and for such affordable price! Love it.

    Current issues:
    - I didn't get the DSD working yet with HiBy Music Player and others, but I keep you updated...
    - Drains battery when connected via USB

    When I plug a USB device into my phone (HTC 10) by default the option to charge an external device is off, but can be enabled, does the S8 not have this charge off option? Or does it charge the Q1 whatever setting is chosen?

    What app for my iPhone will allow me to add DSD files to my iPhone that will then trigger the blue DSD light on my Q1? Thanks.

    Hey guys curious as from what I’ve been reading the balanced 2.5mm input sounds better than the 3.5mm input. My question is my current iem’s the RHA T20s have a trs 3.5mm would I be able to buy an adapter (pictured) to get the benefit of the balanced sound?? (I’m using an iPhone 6s as source) My 3.5mm looks like the center one in the first picture. 8FBED9A8-CAD0-4474-B3FD-9B83C98A6B76.png 01C362E7-42FF-43F1-B5F7-A687B2FCD60F.png
