FiiO X3 Mark III

The music player inherits the design language of previous FiiO X-series players with five-button and scroll wheel layout and it comes with a unique "sandwich" structure that makes it look even much thinner.
The FiiO X3 Mark III music player also offers balanced output to give a broader soundstage experience. It supports Multifunction Line Out/Coaxial Output with support for D2P and DoP. The music player comes with Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-mode Bluetooth. Colour options include Red and Graceful Black.
FiiO F5 Earphone
Talking about the earphone, the company has said, "The F5 Earphone is designed to be detachable with MMCX connector and comes standard with a single-ended audio cable with inline control and a 2.5mm balanced cable which gives the freedom to suit your sound signature preference. With its Hi-Res Audio certification by the Japan Audio Society, the F5 can fully reproduce audio that is faithful and natural, for a life-like listening experience as intended by the artist."
The F5 features a titanium driver diaphragm, which allows the F5 to be more capable in transient response and be more dynamic to make a rich yet delicate sound.
As per the company, the F5's wire sheath is made from TPE which ensures that the cable will last for years. The single-ended and balanced cables are made up of 24-stranded, braided oxygen-free copper (OFC) wire. The 2.5mm balanced cable also further has a layer of 66-stranded copper wiring on top of its core, for extra shielding and even greater protection from external interference.
The F5 is Apple MFi certified which enables the in-line remote controls on the 3.5mm single ended cable to be compatible with iOS devices and most Android devices.
And lastly, coming to FiiO i1, it is an Apple MFi certified, digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and headphone amplifier designed for the Lightning connector.
"The digital audio signal enters through the Lightning connector end that can be connected to the Apple iPhone/ iPod/ iPad (and other Apple products), while the analog audio signals are pushed out through the 3.5mm headphone output. The i1 also automatically detects if you are using a standard headphone or one with inline controls," the company said in its release.
The i1 is equipped with a high-sensitivity microphone that ensures the users' voice is clearly heard during calls and recordings. The three-button design of the i1 allows users to effortlessly pause, play, and switch tracks, as well as answer the phone, adjust the volume, and a number of other operations.
