Inside and out, absolute brilliance
The Q3 MQA Edition is equipped with the next-generation XMOS XU316 controller chip, among the latest for use in USB DACs. The XU316 features 16 cores made in an advanced manufacturing process, bringing high-performance processing and allowing support up to PCM 384kHz/32-bit and DSD256 high-resolution audio formats.
Meticulously tuned, classic relaxed sound
Due to the disrupted supply of AKM DAC chips, the Q3 MQA employs the AKM AK4452. Through numerous adjustments, this chip was tuned so that its performance is similar to that of the DAC in the original Q3 and with even slightly improved power output. The Q3 MQA still features the same charming sound that made the original Q3 so beloved.
Extraordinary sound, THX AAA-28x2 amplifiers
Featured in the Q3 MQA Edition are two THX AAA-28 amplifiers, allowing for a max power output of 330mW (370mW when using Line in mode). Experience hugely powerful, extraordinary sound.
At the audio forefront, Fully supports MQA decoding
Thanks to the powerful XMOS XU316, the Q3 now fully supports decoding the MQA format, allowing you to unfold and render any MQA folder when using a player that supports MQA.
Vivid life, Dual power supply design
Comfortably use the Q3 MQA Edition in any scenario, whether as a portable device or a static device on your desk. Quickly switch between how the Q3 MQA Edition is being supplied power using the Charge switch on the bottom. Using AUX in the battery life is up to 23+ hours, and when using USB in the battery life is up to 12+ hours.
Experience upgraded, All-new strapping kit
The all-new strapping kit designed to bundle together the Q3 MQA Edition to your phone greatly improves upon the experience from before. The innovative X-shaped straps no longer block the display of your phone, and the intermediate films protect your device and prevent the Q3 MQA Edition and your phone from being misaligned when strapped together.
Colorfully cool RGB indicator light
The RGB indicator light is not only striking, but also instantly lets you know the current audio track’s specs and sampling rate.
Smooth experience thanks to ADC volume adjustments
The ADC curve reconstruction method for adjusting volume not only effectively solves the problems of channel imbalance and noise, it also greatly improves the accuracy when adjusting the volume. Relish in making the volume just right for you.
Feel richness of music, Two gain levels & BASS boost
The gain and BASS boost buttons allow you to tailor the sound to different styles and to your liking, letting you better appreciate the richness of music. The BASS boost is achieved in hardware, allowing a bass boost up to 6dB without affecting the higher frequencies.
Listen the way you want, numerous audio outputs
Listen to your music the way you want through either the 3.5mm single-ended output or through the 2.5/4.4mm balanced outputs.

This product is value for money.Although I have not yet used this for a period to test Q3 MQA properly my initial impressions are quite good. It has a very good soundstage. The THX amp is powerful enough to drive my Focals. The controls at the back are initially difficult to use and the labels are very obscure. The bass is a little soft for my liking but will further improve hopefully.
Thanks for the review. We're glad to hear that you're happy with the FiiO Q3 MQA DAC and Headphone Amplifier!
I purchased this DAC to be used with my iPhone and to listen to 24bit/>96kHz Albums in Apple Music. It serves the purpose.
Silicone base and bands to secure with phone
Multiple wires to connect with devices
Good battery charge
Easy to use / understand controls
Flat Sound signature (even the bass toggle adds little bass) which I love
Good build quality
Flimsy Lighting to USB cable (Any 3rd party or even Apple’s Lighting to USB-C won’t work)
At-times there are distortion
I purchased this specifically to take advantage of Apple lossless music. I was contemplating between this and iFi Hipdac. Chose this device as it is very sleek, appears solidly built and is portable. It came in a very nice package with most of the cables needed along with a soft carry bag. The volume know feels good with just the right resistance and sturdy clicks.
Connection options are flexible with USB C for computers, laptops, smartphones including iPhones with the supplied cables.
It sounds wonderful with solid bass, clear highs and smooth mids.
Thanks to the folks at TheAudioStore for being so responsive and facilitating an amazingly fast delivery! Many thanks to Mr.Pritam in particular.

Build quality is superb
Audio is unmatched with any of my previous headsets, including the most taunted Bose.
TheAudioStore shipment and handling is next level, the IEM is carefully packed with a gift cover and was handled very efficiently
Unit I received was in absolute mint condition and is as good as brand new.
It is working perfectly fine and is an amazing bargain at this price.
Thankyou Audio Store ..
I have almost all sub 60k DAPs this is by far the best sounding DAP, pure audiophile grade, R2R dac is great if you know how to play around with Darwin options , mseb options doesn't work with MQA files , compact & lively music player
This is my second kz iem. I purchased the kz edc pro last year and it was a upgrade from all the other headphones I have used. So this time after reading a lot of reviews i went for the zs10 pro x and it was a lot better that I expected. Its pretty balanced. And a excellent upgrade. I use my headphones with the apple usb c to 3.5 mm jack
I ordered demo unit to know the difference between earphones and iem.
I am not an audiophile.
For me it's awesome with great sound quality.
Never miss it for ₹390.
You gotta try it to believe it. Period!
The drivers gives richer sound fidelity given its price. At this price its a steal deal.
It will sink all your "BOATS" with no mercy in terms of pure sound quality.
You get every pennies worth with this product. You will not be disappointed. Audio is very balanced and clear, you will hear more if you have been using bluetooth headphones before. You may feel the bass is less but if you keep using it for days you will realize that it's not, rather different songs have different bass, but a basshead wanting the boom & bang can look elsewhere.
Overall it provides you good quality for it's price point.
Just go for it.
After burning for several hours, it's performing quite well. The sound has completely changed, it's now too matured and warmth. At the end of the day, it's a great purchase.
As this is the first IEM, With much hesitation i brought this and it never disappointed me. With hardly 17days of usage, this IEM is on rest, since my ears too needed it. Thanks to Audio store such a fabulous experience and kudos to their fastest shipping.
One of the best headphones for OnePlus phones
I am using this adapter with vmoda mic cable as well as multiple CTIA cables this works very similarly to the apple original adapter minus the cable part as it's a solid dongle, microphone gain is fine, and the sound is fine, a nice alternative for the original adapter must have for apple users.
Best sounding earphones with very wide stage and balanced.
What ever Pritamji wrote the review on QKZ HBB IEM review 100% agreed with him. So much instruments separation in each and every song. So much wider sound stage. It's having very warmer sounds. We can listen So longer time also not getting bored. Very much engaging. My combo is Sony NW-ZX707 DAP and Sony Xperia I ii mobile with Lotoo paw s1 dac. It's totally outstanding IEM. Even flag ship IEMs also not having so much detailed information sounds. Great tuned by HBB that is Bad boy good audio reviewer. Thanks once again Pritamji for providing me so wonderful product. Over all QKZ HBB IEM is boss of IEMs.
Very good headset with budget price.
