Regarding aptx adaptive. This is what I found out :

the aptX adaptive codec itself isn't backward compatible with aptX HD codec. The earphone chipset has to support both aptX HD AND aptX adaptive for it to work. Qualcomm QCC3040 based devices for instance don't support aptX HD, while being officially compatible with the aptX adaptive codec

What it means is that with phone not supporting aptX adaptive, for instance the Pixel phones, we can at best get the normal aptX.
Hopefully can get aptx HD support, as like others have said not many aptx adaptive devices out there

Yes, There are no major changes in the connector, no major changes in the appearance

But this is a better product in all aspects, and more suitable for enthusiasts
For example.
Independent DAC
Higher-end chip, connection method
Lower noise, better indicators
I would like to say that it can also support aptX adaptive 96k, and game mode, according to our actual measurement,it's better than the use of LDAC.
Just I reminder that you really got me on the better connection and low noise. :)

Oh well, my UTWS3 refuse to connect to music from my DAP anymore. FiiO app can't find them even though Android settings can. Tried to pair to my iPhone and only one side will pair, even after trying all 3 approaches suggested by FiiO. Used it about 20 times, was good while it lasted. That said, I admit I would have upgraded it once a better sounding one comes out, so maybe that's the USTWS5
Dear friend,

Sorry to hear about that. Did you try to charge it for some times and do the factory restore as well? And if the issue still remains, please contact support@fiio.com for help. Sorry for bringing inconvenience to you.

Best regards

Just recently got my UTWS3 paired with Toneking Shockwave III's and loving the sound quality.

Just wondering if audio passthrough could be a future firmware update for UTWS3, or may be available on the UTWS5?

That would be a truly awesome feature imho!

I asked and they beta tested it on the 3 and couldn’t get it working so def won’t be coming via firmware.
Not sure we have gotten it answered if it is on the 5 yet.

Dear friend,

We did try to add the ambient mode function for the UTWS3. However, the effect did not meet our expectation. So we did not add this feature for the UTWS3.
We will report to the engineer and try to add in our new TWS product.

Best regards

Ya unfortunately no transparency mode means the product would be dead in the water for me. I wear mine at work and just can’t not have it. I have the Shure TWS right now but really want to buy your product because of how responsive you are here but I just can’t without that feature :frowning2:

Loving my UTWS3s over here! They sound absolutely stunning when paired up with JH Lolas

I have to wonder... Is there a way to update the firmware? I didn't see it through the App UI. Maybe it pushes updates and you get some sort of message when they go out.
Did you compare your UTWS3 with anything else? I have Andromeda 2020 and little concerned if these or the upcoming UTWS5 will hiss with sensitive IEMs.

Update is done OTA using FiiO app, though I only recall there was just one firmware update a long time ago - so if you didn't see any update in the app, my guess is yours already on the latest firmware (v0.2.53).
