FiiO M7 High-Resolution Lossless Music Player
From its color options to its playback options, the FiiO M7 caters to music lovers who value versatility and alternatives. Whether you go hard for Tidal or secretly still enjoy the radio (the non-satellite kind), you’ll find that the M7 accommodates.
Enormous, Efficient Power
The M7 uses the 1.0GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 7270 processor. In addition to being 40% smaller than existing dedicated processors, it uses 20% less power thanks to its two ARM Cortex A53 cores and Samsung’s groundbreaking SiP-ePoP packaging technology. The smaller size allows it to cool faster, and the efficiency allows for much longer playback times.
We had to do a double-take when we saw which digital-analog converter (DAC) this portable is packing. The ESS ES9018Q2C SABRE DAC is a high performance, 32-bit, 2-channel digital-audio converter that uses Hyperstream architecture and a time domain jitter eliminator. In layman’s terms? That means noiseless, purely streamed audio.
Fetch the Bolt Cutters
With Bluetooth 4.2, the M7 supports playback of aptX-HD, a high-def audio codec that’s 3x better than ordinary Bluetooth audio. Now even audiophiles can enjoy wireless audio without sacrificing high-resolution sound.
20 Hours of Playback Time
With twenty hours of playback time, you could realistically drive from Miami to New York City before realizing you left the charger at home.
The M7 comes pre-loaded with FiiO Music, Tidal, NetEase Cloud Music, MOOV, and KKBOX and supports a number of white-listed apps: Spotify, Qobuz, Roon, Deezer, JOOX, ES file manager, Bandcamp, and Sony headphones. There’s an ocean of music out there. Open the (streaming) floodgates!
There’s something kind of fun about a portable that spans the technological divide between the 20th and 21st centuries. With the M7, you can stream virtually any song ever committed to tape or you can take a walk down memory lane and see whatever happened to your favorite college station (ten bucks says nothing good).
There’s no mix in the world that’ll please every listener. That’s why the M7 includes a 10-band EQ with eight presets. Neutral EQ lovers can temper aggressive highs and lows, while bassheads can make them cans rattle.
