I mean, this is a 30$ device. FB1 is also 30$ and I feel it’s awful. The Fiio uBTR is 30$ and that should cause anything at any price above it to turn real red real fast. Sure, it’s not super powerful, but it’s enough for portable use and for all earphones out there. You’ll not be listening to it with your 300Ω HD600s. And I don’t think FiiO think you will be, either. The only thing I’d fix is that hiss, but again, it’s minimal at worst. And, this is 30$. Gee whiz, this thing is amazing. Well done.
To sum things up, I honestly think that both the UP2 and UP4 are capable devices and if you pair your favourite head and earphones phones with either, you will not experience much of a bottleneck here. You don’t often hear these words about Bluetooth DAC/AMPs very often, so I’d definitely give them a try as they won’t break the bank. In conclusion, I can still easily recommend these devices to people who want to set themselves free of hefty DAPs, and just have a good time running around with 40g of pure Bluetooth bliss.
Hifiman Deva [Added 09/04/2020]
The new Hifiman Deva to me is an excellent headphone. I wouldn’t have minded a bit better staging performance but rest assured, for the price and for a wireless headphone, everything else is very impressive. The design, the build and comfort are all fabulous, and Hifiman once again nailed it in the sound department. Wireless sound has started to become believable to me after those two Hifiman headphones. Also the versatility of the Deva should be praised for what it is.
Hifiman Ananda BT
To be honest with you, I was never a fan of Bluetooth earphones/headphones. This Hifiman Ananda BT however, changed my perception about wireless sound. This easily is the best wireless headphone I’ve ever listened to and it’s not even close. Together with the sound, the general user experience is very pleasing and simple.
