HiBy W5, a game-changing Bluetooth Hi-Fi amplifier with the highest sampling & bit rate brought by a self-developed UAT.
Supports all major Bluetooth transmission formats. Crafted from a stainless steel IP67 certified housing, W5 is pushing Bluetooth Hi-Fi amplifier performance to the edge.
Great sound. Don't even care about any higher bandwidth codec than LDAC. No need. In fact With many headphones with short 5' and 12" cable sounds better then from Hiby R6 directly, probably because cable distorts Frequency response more. Sound is slightly warm with very good definition and clarity. Signature similar to their R6 DAP.
The bad: Design! The 3.5 mm jack should be on the bottom of the device like FiiO BTR3. On top however, cable is making W5 top heavy and puny plastic clip doesn't hold. It drops way too often. Almost lost it once. 3.5 jack is very weak and barely holding. Every time clip fails, W5 detaches from headphone jack and drops on the floor. It survived that for now. Battery lasts only about 3 to 4 hours but that's acceptable for commute and workout. Weak clip and top jack location ruins experience for me!
