Ideal for Commuting

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to music while commuting, then you know the value of a good pair of headphones or earphones. These headphones allow you to listen to your favourite track, make that important call on the go or even block out the world for a focused podcast listening experience. You can expect these headphones to offer a seamless connectivity experience via a wired connection or a wireless one. They are lightweight in design and provide isolation or noise cancellation as an added functionality.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of headphones like these. You can expect these headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Best Suited for Portable Use

The ability to carry your favourite headphone around is priceless for those who value them. These headphones and devices offer the ultimate portability experience without sacrificing sound quality. If you’re someone who appreciates cutting edge engineering, quality sound and portability, then look no further. Designed to be trusty companions, these headphones and devices are cleverly engineered with the latest technology to offer the ultimate combination of portability + hi-fidelity.

Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

Underwhelmed - if that's a word

Earphones/headphones used - Sennheiser momentum wired , jays a jays one , Sennheiser hd 599

Source - iphone 7 plus ,iphone 11 pro max , PC , google pixel 2

I use the iphone as a primary source of music with amazon music and jiosaavn with the highest quality streaming possible

Straight out of the box the Hiby doesn't have a lightning to usb c cable included , so look at spending between 500 to 2000 rupees more for it , I did , bought an amkette first , it didn't power up the DAC , thought there might be an issue with the cable , so bought a boat mfi certified cable , that too didn't work.So 2 new cables tried across 2 iphones and an ipad even, without luck .

Tried with the usb to usb c from the PC and the DAC powered up and was pretty much plug and play , acting as the default sound card .

Tried with the pixel 2 , again worked flawlessly - as far as the powering up was concerned

Coming to the sound quality - if you compare with the output of fairly decent earphones , it hardly makes a difference - to put it in Hindi , it is 19-20

The sound stage was minimally expanded , transparency was fair , i don't know what i expected but am pretty much sure that my earphones and the dac on the iphone are doing a decent enough job for me not to spend on the Hiby.

Unsolicited advice : instead of this DAC invest that amount on a higher end earphone / headphone

Good package and performance

In my brief use of the HiBy FC3, I've found it to improve the sound on my Meze 99 Neo headphones. The claimed 70mw per channel output is plenty for the efficient (30mw nominal) headphones, and drives them with some authority. I've occasionally heard some popping sounds when connected to a mobile device (iOS and Android tested), but didn't experience this on desktop.

The volume button seems extraneous, but is surprisingly useful. The build is metal and good enough. There's a pronounced seam around the case, diminishing the otherwise nice brushed, monolithic look. The LED at the back glows different colours depending on the bitrate being processed. MQA fans can feel warm and fuzzy when it turns purple. A free MQA subscription is included for the "HIBY Music" app. I'm not sure what to do with that. The output is single-ended 3.5mm headphone only, and the socket feels a bit stiff when plugging things in.

Android/Desktop users are sorted -- usb-c to usb-c and usb-c to usb-a cables are inclided. iOS users are out of luck; the lightning to USB-C cable is optional and costs a bit. The usual ones don't work.

I'd recommend this for someone wanting a low-profile dac/amp for portable use as I did.
