Get your hands on the latest music player with amazing 48 hours of battery life and seamless bluetooth streaming.
A well-built Hi-Res player with an easy-to-use navigation dial, astounding sound stage and high sonic quality.
Yesterday I got this & almost last 6 hrs i have used it directly with my 1> V moda cross.. wireless 2 , B&W C5 & B& W P7. Found that I got best result by setting equalizer in custom mode.
Mid & high range are excellent however Bass was little bit missing (I love deep bass). Also feel that it requires more power to drive those head / earphones to get their best output.
Then I fitted with Fiio Alpen 2 DAC with all these combinations.
In that case i got the .. Yes.. the best WOW output by setting headphone mode in N3 to connect with DAC and put the equalizer in custome mode (i set it's 10 band equalizer as per my choice). Selecting of Source mode in N3 to connect with DAC is not giving the WOW .. output.
Finally i can say that with proper combination & setting I got my desire sound. Excellent.
If you use this with proper setting & combination, you will find a BOMB with you. Trust me.
First of all, thank you and appreciate you guys for bringing this product to India. Because here most people are unaware of the quality n fun of listening to lossless music. Mostly listen to muddy mp3 files...
Let me tell you, Cayin has seriously put in some good effort in producing such a lovely product. It is awesome and has most of the bells n whistles. Sound quality is terrific with a good pair of headphones. I mostly listen via Sennheiser, so I get to feel every punch n every beat ... Thank you once again and hope to visit you guys again in near future ... probably for Shanling M2S or M3 or may be a Cowon Plenue
Cayin n3 is a must have accessory for your portable music system. "Why" you asked?
+ Great sonic capabilities out of the box
+ Great transport dap i.e. n3 can be used as a source for other dac using usb c otg adaptor
+ USB DAC functionality
+ Storage 256gb via micro sd
+ 11 hour usage on a 2 hour charge
+ Two way Bluetooth i.e. recieving and transmitting capability
+ Music library of around 1200 FLAC files got updated within 40 seconds
+ Great value for money
- Frequent mistaps on touch buttons while pressing enter key
- Navigation through UI using touch buttons is not a pleasing process
- Weird is the only word to describe it's EQ. It's a 10 band EQ ranging from +6db to -6bd and yet its different than your usual 10 band EQ's. It's not unusable, it just takes some getting used to
- BT transmission is lossy even with that aptx marketing, so tidal users, be aware
- There's a sound lag while starting music from bt. That lag doesn't occur in continuation but after reconnecting bt, that one time startup lag occurs again
- Build quality is good but it doesn't look attractive
- When connected to pc as usb storage, data transfer rates are slow
So far, every negative that is mentioned can be worked with. For example - for the mistaps on touch buttons, one need not use these buttons at all because all of n3's stored music can be accessed and played from a smartphone using hiby link.
Vs fiiio x3 iii
At first, I was planning on buying fiio x3 iii which is available at 13k on amazon after a 35% price discount but then I noticed that fiio x3 iii can not be used as a transport dap which led me to buy n3
I've taken out 40 minutes of my precious time to write this short review to make sure anyone looking into n3 doesn't miss out even on a single detail
Thanks hpz for such a fast product delivery at around 60 hours from the time of placing order :)
I never had a DAP and I find Cayin to very good and some initial difficulty in navigation as the language was Chinese. Then found the way to change the language. It does the job perfectly and happy to have bought this. It is more convenient to use the hi-by app on Android instead of operations on the Cayin.
The charge holds good as promised and output is amazing.
Thank you Headphone zone team for prompt communications and delivery was quick as promised.
