The Q3 Portable DAC and Headphone Amplifier from FiiO offers high-fidelity audio on the go, giving the listener a multitude of features that bolster the listening experience. Compact and lightweight, the unit offers AKM's AKM4462 DAC chip for audiophile performance on the digital conversion side. On the amp side, the unit provides a chip built by THX to deliver feed-forward, error correction topology that ensures a pure, undistorted, high-quality sound.
Able to handle PCM up to 768 kHz / 32-bit, the Q3 uses an XMOS XUF208 chip that also lets you listen to DSD files up to DSD512 (11.2 MHz). Plug in via an aux in jack, or connect over USB Type-C. You'll have the ability to drive 3.5mm unbalanced headphones, as well as 2.5 or 4.4mm balanced phones. Multiple output power settings are available, as is a selectable bass boost to tailor the sound to your liking. Use the multifunction button to quickly switch between powering modes.
The device sports an elegant rounded design with an analog potentiometer for the volume control. An RGB indicator on the volume knob shows you the sample rate playing at any time. The battery can easily last 8.5 hours, extending beyond that depending on the output source. As with any audiophile device worth its salt, the unit is shielded to guard against interference. It ships with a dual USB Type-C head cable, a Lightning to Type-C cable for iOS devices, a USB Type-C data cable, a storage bag, a non-slip mat, a 3.5mm line cable, and selection of binding straps.
