    With more and more smartphones starting to discard the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, to use the old headphones with such smartphones, users have to connect them using an adapter cable which is far from convenient. With such a background, Bluetooth devices such as Bluetooth amps and earphones have become increasingly popular.

    However, ordinary Bluetooth devices can bring convenience to uses, but cannot satisfy their high demand for sound quality. Therefore, what can the little Bluetooth amplifier BTR1 bring to the audiophiles?

    Main Features:

    · Uses the high performing AK4376 DAC, which provides better decoding capability, output power and signal-to-noise ratio;

    · Supports aptX Bluetooth codec which ensures a stable, high quality Bluetooth audio experience;

    · Supports Bluetooth voice calls with its built-in omnidirectional microphone;

    · Battery can last for more than 8 hours when being used;

    · All-aluminum body with metal clip, compact and easy to carry;

    · The two volume keys on the side are easy to use;

    · Can be used with the specifically short FiiO RC-MMCX1s cable and can support two devices at once, etc.

    Having TRS/TRRS CTIA support is awesome! :beyersmile: I can't believe no other manufacturers for BT receivers ever offered this.

    I'm ordering mine asap!

    There is no mention of AptX Low Latency anywhere - is this still supported?

    Does it have on-display battery level indicator either iOS or Android?

    The Fiio page mentions pressing the A button twice for 'sound effect' but nowhere does it describe what the effect is. Is it simply an on/off bass boost?

    Yes, BTR1 also supports aptX L L.

    with ios, it can display battery level, and some Android phones can also be.

    This EQ is more suitable for connecting to speakers, this effect is similar to the effect of secondary playback, 3D sound field.

    Had a brief test with my Android Nexus 6P with added aptX libraries. To my suprise it appears that Android also supports low latency; either that or Plex is compensating automatically which I doubt. So that's cool!

    Audio wise, paired with my Meze 99 Classics, the noise floor is noticeable on the lowest volume levels, but in between movie dialog or during music it's a non-issue. When pausing you can hear a brief moment of high frequency noise floor before it fully mutes. On my Ultrasone HFI780s I can't make any of it out.

    I'll be testing it more with my Avantree Oasis using its optical in off of my AV receiver, but I'm extremely pleased so far. Finally a great product to turn any headphones into a wireless pair suitable for any media!

    Edit: as for BT reception, I have zero issues with it; my wifi is 5Ghz so perhaps other 2.4GHz wifi is interfering, but I still have no drop 5 meters away from my phone with direct line of sight. After that it starts to cut out. I expect full room range with the Oasis having its own dedicated antenna but will test and report back.

    Good review, thanks for that. Which cables are you using with your Shures? I have struggled to find a good, reasonably priced, short cable to use with my Shures and an older Sony bluetooth adapter. The new Fiio short MMCX1s cable looks interesting but it hangs straight down in the product photos and I'm not sure how well it would do wrapping around the ear with Shures, since it does not appear to have any "memory wire" reinforcement.

    6p shouldnt support aptx even with oreo. at least im not supported even though options are selectable. could you expand on your config?
