The Q1 MK ii is an entry-level device while the Q5s is their high-end portable DAC/AMP that also supports replaceable AMP modules. As the name suggests the Q3 will come at the middle ground between these two.

THX AAA Amplification
FiiO Q3 uses the highly reputed THX AAA Amplifier Technology. Previously FiiO created a replaceable amplification module for the Q5s and this time they used at the heart of their Q3. The fully balanced THX amp module has a patented feed-forward error correction topology paired with rigorous OP-Amp components. It helps the Q3 to achieve a powerful output capability. The Q3 also shows low distortion, rich bass, and overall outstanding music experience.

High-Performance Decoding Chipset
The Q3 is equipped with the latest generation of XMOS USB signal receiver chip and high-performance AKM DAC chip, the AK4462. It is capable of decoding PCM up to 32-Bit/768kHz, and DSD up to DSD512 natively. The output with Q3 connected to a normal smartphone or PC is buttery smooth, has powerful bass, crisp detailing, and lush vocals suiting different genre’s of music very well.

Multiple Output Ports
The FiiO Q3 provides good versatility to its users with three headphone output ports. It features 4.4mm and 2.5mm fully balanced output ports and 3.5mm single-ended output port. So user’s can use headphones/earphones with different termination plugs with the choice of their output option.

RGB Indicator & Gain Switches
Near the volume knob on the front, the Q3 houses an RGB light indicator. It indicates the active file bandwidth like blue for 16-Bit Flac and more. The Q3 features a two-level gain switch, high gain, and low gain, and a bass boost switch is also there for that extra thump in the lower end.

The FiiO Q3 is a very capable portable DAC/AMP solution. The little time we spent with it was completely amazing. THX amplification provides a noise-free amazing sound quality output that pairs well with super sensitive IEM’s like the Andromeda’s really well.
