@HiByMusic can you guys please push an update for the Hiby W3 that disables the low battery warning (it constantly repeating it every several seconds) ?

It's totally annoying and makes the W3 unusable at lower battery levels.

Also the OTA update after the download fails for me during initialization stage.

Besides that battery could be better with higher quality codecs (not really complaining though) and switching between codecs in the HibyBlue app could be made easier.

Thank you !

If anyone from Hiby is reading, i do second this. You still have around hour or more of playtime left when the warnings start, and its not very fun hour :).

I bought a hiby W3 to play with and made a short cable for my Denon D5200 purchase on Black Friday. I wanted to try UAT with my Galaxy S20, and it's a compromise when it works.

I see many others complain about stuttering or static. I had the same problems, UNTIL I locked my phone and turned off the screen. After that, UAT streamed smoothly at its highest setting from a reasonable distance. Unfortunately the W3 couldn't remotely control volume or change tracks at that point. That can only be done through the app, and the stuttering starts again.

Anyone with a DAP like the Hiby R3Pro, can you remotely control volume and tracks from the W3?

I have no problem skipping tracks with W3 using Hiby Music player on Android. Although i do remember at one point not being able to do that, not sure what was the cause , but just tested and it works. Probably worth noting is that im not using same phone as a player as you, and might have something to do with the rom(im usually on custom ones, android 10 atm).

No problems with range or crackling, about 3m away, goes through body no problem. In a room though, so signal reflections come in play, havent used it much outside.
Only annoyance with UAT is not being able to control the volume with the receiver. You either need to be in the app, or a sort of workaround is having hiby music as lockscreen(can be enabled in settings), just wake the phone and volume buttons on the phone are able to control the volume.

Hı all! I am a new W3 owner and enjoying it with my E5000s whose sound is very good without EQ, but for my other iems I need to use the EQ and get the message that it doesn't support the sample rate in Deezer HQ. What am I doing wrong?

It is the auto correction in my keyboard settings. It doesn't recognize Deezer and change it to Deeper every time I type it:)

so where and when would it say that the sample rate is not supported? In the Deezer app? In HiBy Blue? Only when EQ is applied? Or? EQ where?

This is on Deezer HQ on my HTC 10. I don't have any mp3/flac in my phone to try it with the player.

Ok so the problem here is that you're playing to the W3 using LDAC (as one might well want to do) but this defaults at 96kHz which is beyond the sampling rates supported by the onboard EQ of the W3. If you want to use it you need to lower the sample rate to 48kHz or 44.1kHz. (Which is no great loss if you ask me, since Bluetooth LDAC does not have enough bandwidth to even transmit regular CD audio bit-perfectly. Lowering the sample rate to 44.1kHz may let you concentrate more of the bits on transmitting audible frequencies) If there are no options to do this in HiBy Blue, the Bluetooth sample rate options may be in Developer Options in Android settings.

Thanks. By the way I can still use this one feeding to arrow 3g amp (bass 2) (Yamaha pro500- Sony mdr-7) with great results without needing the EQ, which was very harsh sounding through the Helm bolt.
