These are probably the best Bluetooth dac/amp if you want to get the best sound quality out of your headphones on the go. Good timing for those of us pre-ordered Note 10 losing the headphone jack.

I love this product. It can drive any headphones properly. It works perfectly and comparable to HiBy W5 ( HiBy W5 got issues) and got great customer service. My ES100 battery died and they have given a free Amazon code to buy a new one. If you have any issues with HiBy product, you need to ship it to China with your money.

Just started researching bluetooth adapters for use with IEMs and the two mentioned the most are the ES100 and the FiiO BTR3. A bit lost on the comparisons as I'm new to this but it seems the consensus is they're both good but the ES100 has more features and a better app. And the BTR3 has better build quality and has aptX-LL whereas the ES100 does not have it (Low Latency being useful for movies/TV). I know sometimes codecs can be added with a firmware update ... do you know if ES100 has atpX-LL currently? Thanks

Anyone else have other thoughts on ES100 vs FiiO BTR3?

basically it depends if you're going to watch movies/play games or anything that needs audio to be synced up with something on the screen then the btr3. if you're going to just use it just for music then the es100 easily.

Received mine yesterday. Using the 2.5 TRRS balanced output to drive Westone ES60. The soundstage is huge. Software is really well done probably the best I have seen for a bluetooth device.
