    You need both plug OTG micro Cable (both micro plug are ID and G short connections), It can be used in this way. FiiO X5III Micro USB out via the both OTG cable digital audio in Q1MKII.

    Since you brought it up when you mentioned the X5III, does the Q1II work with Android? All they advertise is Apple compatibility.

    Depends on the Android device. For instance, I can get it to go with the X5iii and X7ii, but it won't with my wife's much older Galaxy.

    I would need more confirmation than this before I jump on this. $99 is a lot to spend on a maybe, but the Q1II fits what I'm looking for to pair with my Android phone. There's still not much real world feedback on it yet to take the chance.

    I use it with my Note 4 and it does DSD and does not drain battery from Note 4. I posted the cable earlier but I will look for the box if you cant find that post a few pages back.

    As the other posters before me already said, it will depend on the particular Android device.

    Doesn't work with my Asus Google Nexus 7 (2nd generation) tablet or Leagoo Z5c smartphone despite owning several compatible OTG cables and adapters. No idea - maybe root access or the USB Audio Player Pro are required. Imo it would be quite nice to have an overview thread where users could report about which of their Android devices have native Q1 MkII support.

    Anyway, my review is finally up: http://kopfhoerer-lounge.blogspot.com/2018/01/fiio-q1-mkii-review.html#more

    There are too many types of Android mobile phones. Although Q1Ⅱ supports some of the mobile phones, it is still not sure that the firmware is stable after the upgrade, so there is no publicity for this function.

    I don't think that's a huge amount tbh, it's a very good price for this DAC. In any case you could just get it from Amazon and send it back if it doesn't work for you. That's the only way you're really gonna know.


    Hmm that cable looks interesting, do they ship internationally?

    EDIT: Just checked it and they do ship to UK but it would cost me £22 lol :triportsad:

    Thanks for the input everyone. Reviews are mixed on Amazon, but there are only 13 reviews as of last night. I'll keep researching it before I pull the trigger on it. I don't mind waiting longer.

    I just got the Q1M2, hooked it up to my iPhone 8+ with UM ME.1. Really like the sound. For the ME.1, it blows away (IMO) the DragonFly Red.

    I'm gonna have to replace this cable Fiio provided, though. I think it'll end up coming apart eventually.

    The DFR has been my primary headphone DAC/amp for a good two years, so I'm pretty familiar with the sound and output. I've been using it with the ME.1 for a few days and I immediately noticed a difference when I paired it with the Q1M2. The sound is just fuller, even at lower volumes.

    ill make an a/b test with q1mk2 and DFB, not shure if i already did, but ill do it again for good measure.

    I'm really enjoying how musical this DAC is! Its such a pleasure to listen to, the sounds are so sweet and beautiful. Especially when listening to some orchestral and melodic Trance, like Sound Apparel - Dream for example. The breakdown just sounds godlike!



    Amazing! :dt880smile:
