"FiiO has focused on improving the sound quality this time around since there seems to be some features on previous models now removed. So, you lose a bass boost feature plus a line input but, in its place, you get an upgraded and refined tuning."

"FiiO also rates the Q11 highly when it comes to ultra low distortion and high dynamic range. To no surprise, the Q11 measures beautifully flat across the entire 20 Hz to 20 kHz range and provides a clean and precise sound."

Underpowered

First off lets start with the gear I used to test
Hifiman Sundara, Tin Hifi P1 max, Sony nw-A105, Fiio M11 Ltd(for comparison), Tri Star sea, Kato

The single ended is really underpowered. I mean even for IEMs I needed high gain to get some body.
Vocals are not as, to put it simply, beautiful as on the Fiio M11 Ltd. Perhaps this is not a fair comparison, but this is what I had at hand.

On balanced I needed 90% to 100% volume to power Sundara, which left no headroom and did not sound as good as M11 Ltd.

Earlier I had Xduoo 05 basic, which was 500mw in 32 ohms, and it was plenty powerful to drive Sundara with headroom, granted it had some distortions.

So the power spec is either wrong or there is very little current output. not sure of the technicalities.

Another odd thing is that I found no battery indicator, even with Fiio control app. I don't know if this is missing.

In conclusion, I will not be keeping the device.

Hey Ankit! We're sorry to hear that the product didn't match your expectations.

Battery advantage and nothing much else in 3.5mm

I was excited to have a portable amp for my phones and iPad when I ordered the Q11. I’ve got few points to share which might be of use if you’re planning to buy them.
DACs compared with - Apple Dongle, 7hz DAC, Fiio BTR1K, HUD100MK2 + Ifi Zen Air Can stack.
IEM - S12 with W1 tips, vr3000, Aria Snow, Zex. Headphones - Hifiman Deva Pro, m50x

Out of all the DACs, I’d rack them in the following order overall for headphones - HUD100+ifi>7hz>Q11>BTR1K>Apple Dongle
For IEMs -7hz>Apple Dongle> HUD100+ifi>BTR1K>Q11

Since portability isn’t high on headphones stack priority, I haven’t considered it there. In IEM criteria, the loss of convenience has to make up with sound quality and power delivery.

Basically q11 can get shouty, specially with planar magnets and the low end impact is soft. With all that power on paper you’d expect it to have a lot of thump , but it doesn’t deliver. The different filters in the app seem to help a bit with decay, but that’s up for debate since it is so subtle, you’d almost forget it.
Mids are clean, maybe too clean like it’s transparent, lower mids are emphasised a bit.
Apple Dongle is clean throughout unlike q11 which picks and chooses what can be clean.
HUD100 is character filled, smoothing every input it gets, doesn’t get shouty at any point, but demands battery from the source to an extent where you’d think twice before using it in a portable device. Q11 losses everywhere but the battery issue (iPad disagrees, more on that later)
7hz, for the power it uses and outputs there’s a very good balance. The sound signature is balanced , maybe a bit on the warmer side, not super clean, really good nonetheless. No complaint here, just that the cable could’ve been detachable.
The q11 charges when connected to iPad, same with a Mac Air. It could’ve had a toggle to turn charging on or off like the xduoo systems.
The headphones must be driven either at high volumes or in high gain, there’s lack of low end in any mode for that matter.
Overall, if you think it’s too good to be true, it probably is. I’m not difficult to impress, given my collection of devices, it should’ve been easier. I don’t recommend buying this for headphones and iPads at all. The 600 mw is useful for the few hard to drive iems ( do they even exist?) on balanced(jk). For a 1m distance, balanced options are the most ridiculous ideas commercialised yet, I just laugh at myself for using balanced cables, which in an ideal world could’ve been obtained in a SE if the market demanded.

Absolutely worth the Price

Got it a few days ago and have been testing it with IEM's and headphones alike, neat little device works like a charm, and especially useful for headphones. The fact that it has an internal battery, is a big plus since it doesn't drain your phone. This has become my GOTO recommendation for portable AMP and DAC. 10/10 would recommend to someone who travels with headphones.

P.S: It's smaller than it looks in pictures :)
The devices I tested with are
1. Salnotes 7Hz Zero
2. DT990 Pro (250 Ohm)
3. Samson SR850 (32 Ohm)

Was genuinely surprised to see how well it could run my Beyerdynamics (they are modded to use the balanced cable), so safe to say this Fiio Q11 is pretty worth it.|

TLDR: Go for it, 10/10, absolutely worth it especially for travelling with headphones.
