UPGRADE TO HIGH-RES SOUND TODAY WITH THE NEW FIIO BTR5 2021
Make your Bluetooth device a part of the High-Res wireless set up with the FiiO
BTR5 2021. 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 on the lookout for high-end audiophile setups,
the FiiO BTR5 is a perfect option for you to access excellent sound using your current device.
UPGRADED WITH MQA PROTOCOL SUPPORT WITH FULL 16X DECODING
The FiiO BTR5 2021 has been upgraded to offer maximum audio playback capability. A
new addition to the updated BTR5 2021 is support for MQA protocol with decoding and rendering capability.
This allows for high-resolution, master-level sound quality even in reasonably sized files. FiiO BTR5 2021
supports up to 16X MQA decoding with applicable music apps to enjoy music in life-like quality.
UNCOMPROMISED SOUND QUALITY WITH TWO ES9219C AND XMOS XUF208 CHIPS
The core of the FiiO BTR5 2021 has been renewed with two ESS SABRE ES9219C DAC chips with better decoding performance than the previous generation, a higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower power consumption. To further solidify the audio architecture the BTR5 2021 has utilised an XMOS XUF208 control chip. With this chip, the BTR5 2021 is capable of asynchronous audio decoding and can decode up to 384kHz sampling rate and native DSD in USB2.0 and Asynchronous USB DAC supports 384kHz sampling rate and DSD256 natively.
EFFICIENT POWER MANAGEMENT WITH QUALCOMM CSRS8675 CHIP
The biggest perk of integrating and updating the Qualcomm CSRS8675 into the FiiO BTR5 2021 is low-power consumption and improved audio capabilities. This chip allows BTR5 2021 to support 24-bit and 120Mhz DSP audio processing for efficient Bluetooth decoding. You can use the BTR5 2021 for watching videos, playing games or listening to music and be assured of outstanding sound quality.
FPGA CLOCK AND DUAL CRYSTAL OSCILLATOR OFFERING HIGH-FIDELITY AUDIO
FiiO BTR5 2021 comes embedded with a precision FPGA clock and this is responsible for the transmission and reception of Bluetooth and USB digital audio signals as well as clock management. In the BTR5 2021, after the Bluetooth signal is processed through the FPGA, jitter is reduced and signal stability is improved, completely solving the problem of different clock rates between the different components. With the addition of a dedicated FPGA, the 45.1584/49.152MHz dual crystal oscillators can more accurately reproduce audio signals under various sampling rates during Bluetooth and USB decoding.
EXPERIENCE DETAILED SOUND AND CONVENIENCE WITH DUAL OUTPUT CONNECTORS
To offer greater power and detailed resolution, the FiiO BTR5 2021 features both 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm single-ended outputs. In its balanced audio architecture, each channel is driven separately with its own DAC and amplifier, allowing the BTR5 2021 to bring a purer sound with unmatched finesse and balance. 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.
EQUIPPED WITH A CRISP OLED SCREEN FUSED INTO A DURABLE ALUMINIUM BODY
The crisp and clear 0.49 inch 64x32 resolution OLED screen is among the best features of the FiiO BTR5 2021. 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 2021 sports a durable aluminium body with curved glass and an oleophobic layer on the top which gives it a smooth and fingerprint-resistant body.
9+ HOURS OF BATTERY LIFE AND CVC NOISE-CANCELLING MICROPHONES FOR CALLS
Fully charge the built-in 550mAh battery of your FiiO BTR5 2021 in just 1.5 hours. Once it's charged completely you can use it for as long as 9 hours. With built-in dual omnidirectional high-sensitivity microphones, you can use a headset like the CTIA, which comes with an external microphone. When using either set of microphones, you can benefit from CVC 8.0 noise cancellation technology, which intelligently adjusts microphone gain and effectively suppresses background noise for crystal clear calls.
NFC ENABLED DEVICE WITH ADAPTIVE BATTERY SAVING AND USAGE MODE FOR CONVENIENCE
When you connect the BTR5 2021 to your headphones or phone, It remembers your preferred volume level, saving you 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 2021 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. When a USB connection is detected with the BTR5 2021, it will automatically prompt you to turn on "USB Audio Adapter" mode, which turns off charging to the BTR5 2021 and allows you to use it as an audio dongle. 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.
FEATURES EASY TO USE BUTTONS & SUPPORT TO FIIO'S MUSIC APP FOR PERSONALISATION
Pairing, play, pause, accept calls, hang up calls and open voice assistant using the dedicated buttons on the FiiO BTR5 2021. Once you've disconnected your paired devices via Bluetooth, you can press the Bluetooth reconnect button to reconnect with the device again. Just double-tap the dedicated button to activate your voice assistant. You can change how your BTR5 2021 sounds using the FiiO Music App and remotely control channel balance, select from 4 DAC lowpass filters or adjust the sound on a 10 band equaliser. Kindly note that the equaliser functionality does not work in the LDAC. In the box, you get a 360° of all-around protection case along with a detachable back clip and a USB Type-C to Type-C cable.

At this time, just press any button so that it will turn off the charging function and enter the "USB Audio Adapter Mode".
NFC is a near field communication technology. The NFC sensing area of the mobile phone and the BTR5 2021 must be closer enough to each other to be paired. In addition, the NFC power of different mobile phones is different (mobile phones with a metal shell have relatively low NFC sensitivity). In addition, a mobile phone wearing a phone case also has low NFC sensitivity, so it is suggested to remove the case and try again.
-BTR5 2021 Apple Edition: except for those included in the standard edition, there is an extra Type-C to Lightning cable.
1. HWA, as the latest technology, has more poor connection reliability than LDAC and aptX.
2. There were few devices that support HWA, especially consumers in foreign countries. Most of them have no idea about the HWA.
3. The internal ROM capacity of the CSR8675 is limited, especially after an upgrade to Bluetooth 5.0. The BLE function (App control) will take up more space. While coupled with the HWA algorithm, it will have more limited ROM capacity, and will restrict us to make improvements and expansion for the product functions. This is the main reason.
4. As the owner of HWA, Huawei also stated that HWA will face a large upgrade, and the upgraded HWA will no longer be compatible with the previous version. So Huawei themselves also canceled HWA support on their latest system.

Woww is the word for it's sound signature, my most favourite kind
Perfect lows and mids but it's like a king in highs...the highs were smooth and I feel like never heard before....my pre dacs are fiio k1 , Odyssey HD, Ak XB10 , shanling UA2 and I will say very firmly FIIO BTR5 sounds better than all... especially it's sounds better than wired Shanling UA2!!!! Definitely it's worth more than what you pay , it can be used also like usb Dac
My fiio FD1 and Tripowin Mele sounds much better now both highs were sound harsh with other Dacs now ., Especially in some social media i trashed Mele , this dac completely changed my opinion .
Only CON - BT range is not that great , you can't walk around your house , jus because of that cutting 1 star..but it's undoubtedly awesome sounding Dac
I tested with one plus 7 , iems moondrop SSR, fiio FD1 , tripowin Mele, TC01, KZ zex , Blon 03
Update : what's happening headphone zone guys , this is available 1k less in other Indian site ???
Update : 1k credited to me as points , Thanks HPZ team and now it's selling at right price
See i am just talking with respect to sound quality only afterall we are purchasing for the same. This offers very less sound quality than wired.
My devices asus laptop, iphone , ipad with 3.5 mm jack. Oneplus phone. Kz zns pro x , oppo enco m31
1) no difference while yoousing as external dac for laptop in sound clarity, spacial seperation etc. it just increases volume level which you wont do as your ears will bleed.
2) wireless ldac support for oneplus phone feels nice yet you can get same quality in oppo enco m31. Rather you have to carry less gadgets in your pocket with oppo. It doesn’t improve much yet pay more, carry more. Feels like weard
3 ) direct wired with ipad vs wireless btr5…. Pathetic wired sound was mindfull btr 5 sounds like lossy. I felt like I would rather move around holding my ipad with wired plugged in.
4) app was nice you can control the device.
But its just making your life complex.
Glossy look lokks good untill broken.
You can hold untill it gets wet. ( no water proffing)
Buttons are handy
See i am basically audiophile.
Genuinely i am saying don’t go for it.
Go for a good quality iem instead. And have a basic Bluetooth tws. At the end that is what you get from buying this also.
Don’t complicate things in your life keep it simple.
I don’t know why it has so many positive ratings.
If you are looking for something on the go, by all means, let me save you some time and go for it eyes closed. It sounds pretty amazing and the Fiio app works pretty well on phone. I do not think there is anything that's even close to this in its price range.
Coming to the annoying part: If you are someone who wants to use it wired too, well, I encourage you to get a standalone desktop DAC or at the least, look for another brand.
The driver support by Fiio is pathetic. Not just this, I also own the Q1 Mark II and there were quite a few problems occasionally when using with a laptop. Syncing with the system is pretty quick but you will have a real hard time figuring out and troubleshooting this thing for clean playback. Tip: Ditch the drivers and use it driverless unless you absolutely need to use the ASIO functions. There are occasional skips, stutters, pops and weird behavior when using high sampling rates as a USB DAC indicating input and output mismatches and this will probably make you feel better off using it in the wireless mode with your laptop unless you like restarting this thing every few minutes. I confirmed this with 2 systems and I got the same results and unfortunately, I am stuck with it right now.
Coming from the support side from headphonezone, this review is definitely not indicative of their support since their team is pretty awesome. Shipping was lightning fast and their support team and headphone-guru squad is pretty responsive and knowledgeable and will be really happy to guide you. Its just a bad experience from my side for this product which is totally on Fiio. I really hope they fix it and get their shit together.
About FiiO BTR5 2021:
After a long research I bought the FiiO BTR5 2021. Great sound quality, nice features and amazing build quality. I heard about FiiO brand earlier but this is my first purchase.
- Very nice audio quality, using with my FiiO FH1s IEMs and OnePlus 7T mobile
- Accompanying app is useful
- Advantage of using it as Bluetooth and wired DAC
- Single ended and Balanced output for audiophile convenience
- Little display is useful
- Battery life is not that great, reduces drastically from 100% to 80% and to 40% very fast. (80% to 40% directly)
- For the price they should have at least provided a carry case.
- Very helpful Headphone Gurus
- Nice website but lacks "Wishlist" feature
- Very prompt in replying to the queries via email
- Fast and prompt delivery to Bangalore
I had raised this concern that your price is high, for the same i got 2 mail replies. In one it was clearly mentioned that price cannot be matched. Considering that i bought the product. After sometime i got another mail mentioning that price can be matched. So can you provide me store credit of the extra difference amount i have paid. With that store credit may be i can buy some other product.
While bringing out the best from my IEMs it offers me the Bluetooth option I was missing a lot. From moving around the house with the BTR tucked in my jacket pocket while I do my daily chores to using it in wired mode with my work laptop, it does the job just perfectly.
Thank You HPZone for the amazing and timing delivery and the beautiful set of products.
Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thank you for the great review & ratings!
