Meet the smallest and lightest player that can reach your Tidal library. The HiBy R3 is a Hi-Res audio player packed with amazing features like an ESS ES9028Q2M DAC chip, Mage Sound 8-Ball Tuning, 11-hour battery life, aptX and lots more! You can connect this DAP to various kinds of headphones/earphones and it supports multiple audio file formats.
The R3 uses a premium ESS ES9028Q2M DAC chip, 8 Panasonic hi-polymer/tantalum POSCAP capacitors and an HBC3000 DSD256 capable audio controller. This gives you a deep and spacious sound as well as an SNR of up to 117dB and THD+N down to 0.002%.
Want more bass or need to reduce the treble? No problem. The Mage Sound 8-Ball Tuning (MSEB) uses multiple algorithms based on sound field adjustments and a parametric equaliser (PEQ) to adjust the sound.
HiBy has used its decades of experience in software development to create the HiBy OS. This gives you the highest runtime permissions and multithreaded man-machine interaction to give you a superior audio performance. You can even control the R3 via your phone with the HiBy Link.
The HiBy R3 contains a 1600mAh battery which gives you a battery life of 11 hours. When on standby, this DAP can stay alive for 60 days straight.
Connect to other devices with Bluetooth v4.1. Qualcomm aptX lets you stream CD-quality audio wirelessly from your R3 to your headphone/device. Even though it does not have any internal memory, you can store all your music on the 2TB microSD card and carry it along with you.
Connect your favourite headphone or earphone to the R3. It has a standard 3.5mm jack (with shared Line Out) and 2.5mm balanced connector. A bi-directional USB DAC interface lets you use this player as a USB audio dongle for most devices (including your smartphone).
Enjoy the highest quality audio possible. The R3 supports multiple file formats like DSD256, PCM up to 384Khz/32bit. Other compatible file formats include FLAC, WMA, DSD IOS, APE, DFF, WAV, AIFF and OGG.
Hi-Res sound also deserves a Hi-Res display and this is what the R3 offers with its 3.2-inch IPS LCD Touch Screen. The physical buttons make it easy to use while the aluminium alloy chassis makes it more durable.

This little baby has amazing sound, best till what I’ve listened on a dap & five star for headphone zone service , thanks guys for your support!
I have used several hi res music players from Fiio. But this is the player I can hear and feel very much pleasure.
At the outset let me thank the headphonezone for their prompt delivery of my Hiby R3 player. I boughtit for 19,999/- last month and the price now is 15,999/- which is amazing. Out of the box it was brand new red colored as i desired. There is a screen protection film already installed on the screen along with two more spares. Also a plastic case is provided free. After one month of usage i can safely say its an amazing sounding player. I play lossless files and also compressed files and its sounding great with my normal apple ear phones. I tested it with a bose noise cancelling headphone which i borrowed from my friend and the output is unbelievable. i can connect to my home wifi and the bluetooth works seamlessly.
all in all its a player i would recommend without any doubt and especially the price now being reduced its a definite buy.
This is good quality for this budget but not so great. But after connecting with Chord Mojo, it is amazing to hear via Shure SE846.
If you are a casual listener please use use your phone.
If you really like to listen music go for it. It will not disappoint you.
If you are used to gigantic smartphone screens the screen size of this device is going to literally shock you But the thing is that you are buying it for listening to songs and not to interacting with screen and as far as I'm concerned it's sound quality is good. One more thing this is more than a year old. So do a little market research but do note that this is the only DAP in it's price range with a 2.5mm balanced jack so if that's your priority. There is no song search feature which is rather disappointing if u want to listen a particular song in a gigantic library. Nit picking aside this device is good for listening music.
