Make your Bluetooth device a part of the High-Res wireless set up with the FiiO BTR5. With Bluetooth 5.0, the BTR5 extends support to high-quality Bluetooth codecs like AAC, SBC, AptX, AptX LL, AptX HD, and LDAC up to 96 kHz. So if you are in two minds about investing in high-end audiophile setups, the FiiO BTR5 is a perfect option for you to access excellent sound using your current device.
The biggest perk of integrating the Qualcomm CSRS675 into the BTR5 is low-power consumption and improved audio capacities. This allows BTR5 to support 24-bit and 120Mhz DSP audio processing for efficient Bluetooth decoding. You can use the BTR5 for watching videos, playing games or listening to music and be assured of outstanding sound quality.
There are two core functions of music players—seamless transmission of digital audio signals and efficient clock management which is taken care of by the FPGA. FPGA plays a vital role in reducing jitters, enhancing stability and flawlessly integrating different clock rates. With the proficient FPGA at play, the BTR5 is also supported by the 45.1584/49.152 MHz dual crystal oscillators that reproduce audio accurately regardless of the sampling rate. This exquisite setup allows the FiiO BTR5 to drive excellent audio fidelity.
To produce detailed reproduction of sound, the ESS SABRE ES9218P was employed. Combining multi-level analogue gain and digital volume in a dual-volume adjustment design allows you to control the volume precisely without affecting the dynamic range. If you are using the balanced output, the BTR5 delivers 220mW output at 32Ω and 7.6Vpp at 3000 Ω. Apart from being exceptional at lossless Bluetooth performance, the BTR5 is equally capable of USB decoding all thanks to the XMOS XUF208. This control chip empowers the BTR5 to decode sound asynchronously under USB Class 2.0. Moreover, if you use the BTR5 as the USB DAC through its USB Type-C connector, it can decode up to 384kHz sampling rate and DSD.
Offering the convenience of balanced as well as single-ended output, the BTR5 offers better power and detailed sound resolution. Each audio channel of the BTR5 is driven independently with each channel having its DAC and amplifier. This truly balanced audio architecture extends pure balanced sound. Kindly note that when 3.5mm and 2.5mm outputs are inserted simultaneously only the 3.5mm port will provide sound to ensure that the BTR5 functions normally.
The crisp and clear 0.49 inch 64x32 resolution OLED screen is among the best features of the BTR5. It is one screen that displays everything including info about pairing, connection, call status, power status, encoding format and volume. It also allows you to view and modify the charging status, car mode, filters and EQ. Similar to some of the latest smartphones, the FiiO BTR5 sports a sleek aluminium body with curved glass and an oleophobic layer on the top which gives it a smooth and fingerprint resisting body.
Fully charge the built-in 550mAh battery of your FiiO BTR5 in just 1.5 hours and once it's completely charged you can use it for as long as 9 hours. With a built-in omnidirectional high-sensitivity microphone, you can use a headset like the CTIA which comes with an external microphone. The moment you connect the headset, the FiiO BTR5 recognizes it to seamless switch the microphone. Whether you are using the microphone of the BTR5 or the CTIA headset you get smart cVc 8.0 noise cancellation that cancels out noise for crystal clear calls.
When you connect the BTR5 to your smartphone you can manage the volume of both devices separately allowing you to adjust the volume with better precision. It also remembers your preferred volume level, saving your effort and time. In iOS devices, you can even view the battery percentage right from the widget. Smart enough to detect the kind of headphone you are using, the FiiO BTR5 adjusts its output once you insert the headphone. The moment you remove the headphone, the BTR5 is smart enough to pause the music and to go into low power consumption mode saving battery life. You can connect to compatible devices using NFC one-touch connectivity. If you are using the BTR5 in the car mode, the BTR5 turns on and off depending on the car.
Pairing, play, pause, accept calls, hang up calls open voice assistant using a single multifunctional button on the FiiO BTR5. Once you've disconnected your paired devices via Bluetooth you can simply press the multi-function button to quickly pair with the device again. Just double-tap the multi-function to activate your voice assistant. You can change how your BTR5 sounds using the FiiO Music App like to remotely control channel balance, select from 4 DAC lowpass filters or adjust 10 band equalizers. Kindly note that the equalizer does not work in the LDAC. In the box, you get a 360° of all-around protection case along with a detachable back clip using which you can wear it vertically or horizontally. You can even tuck the FiiO BTR5 in your pocket using this clip.

Watch the most popular YouTube reviews for the FiiO - BTR5
It sounds loud and good, excellent pairing everytime. But what I noticed it has less than 10 feet bluetooth range in general and loses connectivity within 2 or 3 feet if u turn around that's a big problem bcoz u always have to keep ur mobile in range or in hand. For smartphone users it's sound production is more than our ear receiving capacity but u may not satisfied with the sound quality in terms of clean, details and quality sound. Fiio BTR 5 control app works good and has an excellent control over the device only LDAC mode audio not supported by equalizer but sounds good in this mode. A good quality multi drivers IEMs may solve smartphone users problem bcoz it's loudness is enough and details are clean and crispy but it may good for laptop or other sound systems. I use it with KZ ZSN pro 10 even RHA MA 390 sounds well through BTR5,
Hey Shashi, thanks for sharing your honest feedback!
After much research and anticipation I finally bought the fiio Btr 5.I was utterly disappointed with the performance.
I had previously bought the shanling UA 1 from you and paired with my Samsung S21 ultra it's performance was far better than the Btr 5
I would like to return it immediately and get some other product instead
Sad to know that the product was not up to your expectation. It is natural for a device to be absolutely loved by one and hated by another.
We welcome you to talk to our Headphone Gurus so that you may discover the right product that will make you happy. We don't want to lose any of the customers who come to our website, leaving unhappy.
Thank you for sharing this positive review.
Portable yet powerful, using it with KZ ZSN Pro X certainly an amazing upgrade. Pretty useful with a mobile device and thus good to take along while travelling or just going for a leisurely walk.
Thank you for sharing your review.
After long research and lot of confusion .. you have to make a choise .. and I made it to BTR5 .. and not regretting it..
For the record ... I am a music lover .. not an audiophile or something like that..
I have Desktop PC with Creative inspire 4.1 setup .. speakers are almost 18 years old but still packs punch... Firstly i was looking for sound card for them ... but as nowadays we are using Bluetooth to play music everywhere i.e boombox , car , mobile etc.
So, i left the thought of soundcard and decided to go for Amp/Dac... Which fulfils my requirements of playing song through my mobile, car stereo and mainly my creative speakers with my pc ...
As earlier said .. i am not an audiophile .. but after playing music through my speakers ,via BTR5 now started to notice some details in songs which earlier not audible through normal setup...
And I am enjoying it...
Changes in sound noticed are ..
Voice: crystal clear
Bass : punchy..
Music : Detailed and specific (i don't understand Highs , mids and lows language .. sorry for that ... But one word for music is DETAILED ....
If you have first time bought any amp/Dac... you will get my point after listening)..
That's all folks.....!!!
We're so happy to hear that! Happy listening! :)
FiiO - BTR5
Good amp and dac.
battery is a Little low. Great sound resolution, no hisses or pops, no cracking at a higher volume, drives my planar magnetics sufficiently on high gain and SE output.
Overall great if you need Bluetooth dac for your iem.
Hey Akash, thanks for sharing your honest feedback, we really appreciate it!
One of the best Bluetooth solutions and the price is a real steal for all that you are getting. FiiO has a winner in their hands with the pure versatility it offers
