FiiO India Launches X3 Mark III PMP, F5 Earphones, and i1 Lightning Amplifier & DAC


Music products company FiiO on Monday announced the launch of three products in India. The company has launched its FiiO X3 Mark III portable music player, F5 earphones, and i1 Apple Lightning Amplifier & DAC at Rs. 14,990, Rs. 4,999, and Rs. 2,990 respectively and all three products are available for purchase from the company’s own website.

Talking about the FiiO X3 Mark III music player first, the company says that the third-generation of the music player comes with improved design and hardware specifications over predecessors. The five-button and scroll wheel layout makes a return and the new portable comes with a “sandwich” structure that makes it look much thinner, as per the company’s claims.

The FiiO X3 Mark III music player supports Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-mode Bluetooth. It also supports Multifunction Line Out/Coaxial Output with support for D2P and DoP, the company said in its release. In terms of colour options, users will have a choice between Red and Graceful Black.

It inherits the design language of previous FiiO X-series players with a “sandwich” structure makes it look much thinner, balanced output for a broader soundstage, dual DACs, Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-mode Bluetooth support, as well as multifunction line out/ coaxial output with support for D2P and DoP.

Talking about the earphone, the company said, “The F5 Earphone is designed to be detachable with MMCX connector and comes standard with a single-ended audio cable with in-line control and a 2.5mm balanced cable which gives the freedom to suit your sound signature preference. With its Hi-Res Audio certification by the Japan Audio Society, the F5 can fully reproduce audio that is faithful and natural, for a life-like listening experience as intended by the artist.”

Finally coming to the FiiO i1, the digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) and headphone amplifier has been designed for the Lightning connector that comes on the Apple devices. “The digital audio signal enters through the Lightning connector end that can be connected to the Apple iPhone/ iPod/ iPad (and other Apple products), while the analogue audio signals are pushed out through the 3.5mm headphone output. The i1 also automatically detects if you are using a standard headphone or one with in-line controls,” the company said in its release.
