Wider Soundstage from Balanced Output
The X2 Mark III contains both a 3.5mm single-ended headphone output as well as a 2.5mm balanced output, allowing you to experience two kinds of high quality sound. The balanced output, never before seen in the X3, is specially designed to give a broader soundstage and extract more details from the music than ever before.
Dual DACs for Great Sound Wherever
You deserve better sound. The X3 Mark III makes sure you get it with its dual high-performance PCM5242 DACs. In its balanced implementation, these DACs allow for effective noise rejection and a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). All of this means that your music will come to you in its purest form, free from any unwanted artifacts.
Independent DAC, LPF, and Amplifier for Greater Noise Reduction
The X3 Mark III utilizer a design in which the DAC, low-pass filter(LPF), and headphone amplifier are all separated - greatly reducing the potential that any outside interference has a significant negative impact on the sound. Specifically, the X3 Mark III uses three different PCBs - one for the digital processing, one for analog amplification, and yet one more for Bluetooth. This guarantees an outstanding experience regardless of if you go wireless or wired.
Say Good-bye to Complexity with Just One Press
The X3 Mark III adds a new multi-function button, with which in just one-press allows you to access playback controls and the equalizer as well as switch between playlists and themes. All so you can easily have total control over your music.

The X3 Mark III's support of a wide variety of lossless audio formats such as WAV, APE, WMA, FLAC, ALAC, DSF, AND DFF at sampling rates and audio bit depths up to 192kHz/32 bit ensures that you don't have to worry about whether you can even listen to a certain track while on the go.
The Music Never Stops with Bluetooth 4.1

Multifunction Line Out/Coaxial Output with Support for D2P and DoP
The X3 Mark III's line out also doubles as a coaxial output. In consideration that some external audio decoders may not have support for DSD and only supports PCM, the new X3 is now capable of outputting both D2P and DoP through it coaxial out. You no longer have to agonize about playing you DSD files through your PCM-only decoder!
Wake up from Deep Sleep in a Second
The X3 Mark III features both a new power - saving standby and a new deep - sleep mode, both allowing the X3 Mark III to wake up in an instant when called for. These new power-saving modes allow the X3 Mark III to standby for up to 19 days!
Broader In-line Controls Support for Even Greater Command
The X3 Mark III now supports even more in - line control standards, so that most of the headsets on the markets with such controls can conveniently access the next/previous track, play/pause, and volume controls on the X3 Mark III. Even FiiO's newly introduced F1, F3, and F5 earphones are fully supported by the X3 Mark III.
*Volume adjustment on Apple Earpods is not supported.
Asynchronous USB DAC supporting up to 19 kHz/24 bit audio
The X3 Mark III can also be used as a USB DAC capable of decoding up to 192 kHz/24 bit audio. Furthermore, the new X3 is implemented as an asynchronous USB DAC, which is unsurpassed in terms of quality of sound reproduction.
*The USB DAC function is not available on macOS now, will be realized by future firmware update.
Modern Tech inside a Retro Look
The X3 III inherits the design language of previous FiiO X-series players, giving it a classic, yet timeless look. The front of the player is adorned with the familiar five-button and scroll wheel layout - but the wheel itself has been upgraded so that it is not more sensitive and better reads your inputs, making it much less of a chose and more a joy to use.
Petite and Elegant in the Palm of Your Hand
The X3 Mark III immediately captures your attention with its use of durable tempered glass and smoothly0cut aluminum frame. Its unique "sandwich: structure (composed of the front, the aluminum frame, and the rear) and its harmonious combination of colors give the X3 Mark III it's delicate and chic look. Compared to the previous X3, the X3 Mark III is not only lighter, but it is also thinner and feels better to hold in the hand.
