The K1 presents you with good detailing and transients, with some much-needed sparkle in the higher frequencies. The instrument separation and imaging is great and definitely a strong device.

The FiiO K1 offers a dynamic sound with impressive separation and clarity, while excelling in expanding your soundstage by a very striking width. Weighing at a minuscule 10g, the lightweight K1 works without a battery for a perfect plug-and-play experience.
The FiiO K1 comes with accessories that include a short USB to micro-USB cable and a removable plastic clip.
The FiiO K1 USB Amp/DAC uses Savitech's SA9023A receiver to decode USB audio and then TI's high fidelity, low-noise Texas Instrument PCM5102 DAC chip ( used in both Q1 & E17K)comes into play which outputs to the TPA61332A headphone driver. In order to greatly reduce on/off transients, the self muting function helps in giving a problem-free audio experience.
Pure, Uncompromising Sound
The K1 presents good detailing and transients with some sparkle in the higher frequencies. Instrument separation and imaging is definitely a strong point of this small device. Bass & midrange pick up more body and texture with good extension. The upper midrange and lower treble is also slightly accentuated.

Amit said: My first Amp/DAC. Had high expectations. Fell short by a huge margin.
I tested the device using the following devices 1. Dell Inspiron 7000 Series (Coupled with Dell's Waves Maxx Audio Pro)
Headphones/Speakers used : 1. V-Moda Crossfade LP2 2. Sony MDR-100 ABN (in wired mode) 3. F&D F-203G Desktop Speakers.
I will directly jump to my sound tests. The first thing I noticed after attaching the device to my laptop and listening on my speakers was the sound output (Tested on 4 USB 3.0 ports. No difference). They were too damn low. Normally my speakers would be at 50% and laptop sound setting would be around 75% for it to be loud enough across the flat. But after attaching this the sound output reduced to such an extent that I had to crank up both my laptop and speakers to 100% for it to be audible in slight more than 50 percent of my flat area. Not expected of an "amplifier". Even the Waves Maxx Audio Pro's software enhancements were not enough This would probabl work more as a mobile sound amplifier. Not sure how they assumed it would be enough to power a laptop's sound system.
In my second test, I assumed the power of the AMP/DAC would be seen in high end headphones. I had the same results here. Both my headphones are meant for different song genres but the sound difference is noticeable. While there is no doubt there were subtle improvements in the sound quality, the issue of the sound output still remained the same.
I had hoped this would be the beginning of a good investment. One that I had hoped continue over the coming years trying to get value for money AMPs and DACs but this was a total bummer. Good news is at least I know which direction to not go in.
The reason I am not giving a 2 star rating rather than a 1 star is because of the sound quality. I have been as detailed as I can be. Hope this helps.

Suresh A R said: Good product.. Great value..
First of all, great service from Headphonezone for having delivered the product within a day as promised! I am using K1 with my Dell laptap which has a pretty good sound-card. But listening with K1 has definitely improved my audio experience. I mostly listen to classical numbers and I see that this DAC really gives an open, natural and robust sound. That too with such a small and compact form factor. Thanks to FiiO and Headphonezone for bringing out this product for Indian customers.
