THX AAA Amplifier Technology Pure, natural sound
With THX’s patented feed-forward error correction topology, the AAA amps have low distortion, high power and a pure, uncolored sound. You’ll experience subtle details and shocking swings in your music effortlessly with the AAA amp in the Q3.
Humbly powerful on the inside
All-new DAC AK446
Utilizing AKM’s new efficient AK4462 VELVET SOUND DAC with decoding support up to 768kHz/32-bit PCM and DSD512, the Q3 achieves excellent performance. .
No regrets for its powerful decoding abilities
The Q3 comes with the same XMOS XUF208 USB chip as found on FiiO’s flagship DAC/amplifier, allowing it to easily support decoding up to 768kHz/32bit PCM and DSD512.
Classic design with a pleasing roundness
The Q3 is a continuation of the design language of FiiO’s other amplifiers – its elegant curves, simple lines, smooth CNC and sandblasted all-aluminum body give it sturdy yet beautiful look while remaining practical to use.
Lots of connectors for lots of fun
The Q3 is equipped with 4.4mm/2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm single-ended outputs, allowing you to connect all kinds of headphones. You don’t have to sacrifice compatibility with single-ended headphones while having fun with the balanced output!
Light up the moment
The RGB indicator on the volume knob allows you to easily distinguish between different sampling rates, and spices up your listening experience! ≤48k Blue；>48k Green；DSD Yellow
Versatile multi-function button
To make the Q3 more convenient to use, a multi-function button allows you to quickly switch between gain levels and filters. Change your sound with some simple taps!
More lows with the same highs
A bass switch allows you instantly activate/deactivate the bass boost function. The purely hardware-based bass amplifier circuit can increase bass by up to 6dB without affecting the mids or treble.
Your fingers will instantly know
Among professional audio products, nothing adjusts volume better than an analog potentiometer volume knob. When combined with ADC curve reconstruction, traditional problems with analog volume knobs like low-volume channel imbalance are effectively eliminated - so that you can quickly and accurately change to your desired volume.
Still ready even after a long day
Despite its high-performance components, the Q3 has long battery life. The 100mAH battery means 10 hours or more of music under USB decoding, definitely enough for a normal day of listening.
Interference shielding for purer sound quality
High-strength all-aluminum body + copper-nickel shield + highly efficient absorbers form a 360° radio frequency interference shield around the Q3. Even when using it right next to a smartphone, one would be hard-pressed to detect any interference.
Instantly connect with the symmetrical Type C connector
The Type C connector on the Q3 allows you to connect it to more devices, and allow for more convenient charging with support for USB PD and Lightning charging.
