Redefining portable expectations
The smart desktop-class M17 is an entirely new chapter of FiiO digital audio players. Its desktop-grade DAC, amplification, power supply, etc. give it the output power and sound quality to rival and perhaps even surpass highly-regarded desktop systems, but in a portable package. Let the M17 redefine what is possible with portable audio players.
Desktop-league DAC ES9038PRO
The left and right audio channels each contain a desktop-class, 8-channel ES9038PRO flagship DAC. This means that each audio channel has 8 parallel outputs summed together for superior resolution and minimal distortion for extremely pure audio reproduction.
Desktop-class THX 788+ headphone amp
Desktop-class amplification also plays an important role in the M17. FiiO and THX jointly developed the exclusive THX AAA-788+, an upgraded version of the original op-amp. Compared to the original, output power is increased by 225% up to 3000mW per channel with a lower output impedance, allowing it more effortlessly power all kinds of headphones.
Under battery power, there are 4 gain levels: low, medium, high, and headphone mode. When under DC mode, the super headphone mode gain is unlocked, with a truly desktop level of amplification gain. In the balanced output, the gain can get as high as 16dB, allowing the M17 to easily drive most headphones.
Thanks to its larger size, the M17 features a variety of connectivity options allowing for many different convenient use cases:
• 3.5mm output: headphone out/line out
• 6.3mm output: headphone out
• 2.5mm output: balanced headphone out
• 4.4mm output: balanced headphone out/balanced line out
• RCA coaxial port: coaxial input and output
• USB 3.0 port: supports USB Host and Device modes, can be used for high-speed data transfers and fast charging
• USB 2.0 port: supports USB Host mode, allowing external DACs
Desktop-quality power supply
The M17 contains two power supplies, a battery power supply and a power supply powered by external DC power. The battery power supply allows you to use the M17 in situations where there is no access to a power outlet. Under DC power supply, the voltage in the analogue circuit is increased by 35% up to 11.5V compared to under battery power supply; and the battery is kept healthy since it is not used in this mode.
Desktop-tier heat dissipation
With exceptional audio quality comes large power consumption, so effective heat dissipation was a large focus when designing the M17. Not only are "H" type heat dissipation and VC liquid cooling technologies adopted, but the M17's 151g unibody aluminium alloy frame also effectively transfers heat out of the device. Finally, the cooling fan stand also further makes sure heat is rapidly transported away.
Physical digital-analogue separation for reduced interference
Within the M17 and 17 PCBs with immersion gold finish, the analogue and digital sections are physically separated by being on two different boards to reduce interference between the two portions. 7 high-conductivity copper alloy shields also provide shielding to greatly reduce internal and external electromagnetic interference on analogue audio signals within the M17.
Highly-optimised modular internal structure
The M17's design took 1.5 years to complete, going through 6 major design iterations with 12 rounds of internal structural design optimisation. The result is a device that makes excellent use of its internal space. Within the M17 are carefully stacked analogue and digital boards with thoughtful use of stainless-steel hexagons, which allowed FiiO to stuff nearly twice the surface area of PCBs compared to normal in such as limited space.
7th-gen mech design
The futuristic, seamless, CNC-finished aluminium unibody design evokes a sense of technological wonder. The mech-inspired sharp lines of the body, buttons and atmospheric lights give the M17 a bold and charismatic aura.
Press or twist to enjoy
The volume can be adjusted either using an analogue potentiometer knob or using buttons. Quickly and easily go through 120 levels of volume through either method.
Radiant RGB ambient light
The M17 features a seven-colour RGB ambient light system with extensive customisation options. Colours can be set to be either fixed, to follow the audio, or to follow a cycle. The brightness of the ambient light can be set to change depending on the current power, volume, or temperature. And finally, the top and side ambient lights can even be controlled separately, allowing you to dial in exactly how you want your dazzling lights to be.
Bigger screen for brighter sheen
A larger screen allows you to more easily enjoy stunning visuals. Let your eyes feast upon an upgraded 5.99 inch, 1080*2160 FHD+ 18:9 high-definition in-cell display.
Immense 9200mAh battery
The massive 9200mAh battery allows for battery life of up to 10 hours on the M17. It can be charged either through USB or through DC in from an external AC adapter.
• Battery capacity: 9200mAh | Charging time: 4.5hours | Charging protocols: QC4.0+PD
• Battery life: 10 hours (single-ended), 8 hours (balanced)

The Performance of this Balanced Adapter is Excellent.
Excellent headset if any doubts dm me ig@satika_sunidhi
Does what it is supposed to. Please do not ask how it changes the sound, balanced output only helps you get more power from a DAC/AMP that supports it. The alternatives were much more expensive and I find this one to be perfect. It's better than the stock cable that comes with Edition XS. If you have a source that can make use of a balanced cable, by all means go ahead and purchase one. The headphones that this cable supports scale well with extra power so it's a worthwhile investment.
Using with 7hz salnotes, quality is good so far
good packaging and great product.
After reading reviews, I ordered the Azla Sedna Earfit Crystal Medium Small size. These ear tips are very unique and have an adhesiveness to them which makes them really fit inside the ear canal. The sound quality greatly improves due to the compactness of the fit. These are premium ear tips and should last long in my opinion. I think the medium size is perfect for people with normal size ear canals. Really good stuff.
The iems stands what it says. Has balanced audio for purist. If you like metal then these are one of the best under 2k. Although I didn't like the mic it is not sensitive enough doesn't captures voice effectively.
You will love the sound, a superb pair of headphone to begin your IEM journey
Go for it blindly !!
It amplifies the music and also clarity if you are using any IEM it will sound better. I would have recommended it wholeheartedly if it were made in India product.
Highly recommend this cables after using its 16 core version which was very prone to tearing and ultimately tore away. This cable feels way sturdier than its 16 core version. And also this one does not tangle at all and the ear hook size is great for small - medium sized ears.
The cp 100 plus' silicone material is very nice and feel comfortable and unfatigueing to use for a long period of time. They also provide a very good grip and hold my moondrop arias in proper place without slipping away due to ear wax after prolonged listening sessions. Highly recommended if you feel your current eartips are causing discomfort.
I bought these to connect my Beyerdynamic Amiron to the ifi Gryphon using the 4.4 balanced input . These cables are well made and flexible . Sound quality is more open and clear . Recommended.
The excellent service from the Audio store . Faster delivery , even for delay dispatch am had an call from the support team. Am very happy with the product and the service provided by the Audio store.
