Product Comparison: Audio-Technica AT-PHA55BT vs Fiio BTR3
- It is really amazing to is emu headphones with this amplifier plus the bloetooth integrated.
- This DAC/amp is a budget device with good bodacious sound.
- The PHA55BT delivers a rich but accurate sound with plenty of detail and no major hiccups.
- This DAC/amp produces sound that costs twice or three times as much as this device.
- Thanks to its rich, intoxicating sound, this unit is solution to anyone in need of a portable listening setup.
- DAC/AMP combination is a bit warmer and the bass seems punchier than the DAC/AMP in the phone itself.
- Sounds honestly better than with the USB dac.
- Sound-wise, the quality is pristine, the noise is almost non-existent and it's powerful.
- The sound was very good, I couldn’t tell the differece between this and a wired connection to the phone.
- Sound quality is great, but sometimes i hear noise.
- This little device special and earned my favorite among the other receiver I had.
- The device is a really small and slim. Has a very attractive look.
- Unit has a slim and portable profile. This a real portable device.
- The unit itself feels incredibly light, thanks to a mostly-plastic design.
- It’s a bit longer when compared to similar devices. That makes device little uncomfortable.
- This device has absolutely amazing sound quality for a device of this size and at this price-point.
- The real size (when you keep it in hand) surprised me so much. It is tiny.
- It was a perfect size, the DAC's in it were high quality so the sound was really good.
- The size is really small, comparable to a usb flash drive.
- The small size makes the classic wrapping your headpones around the device, a bit more difficult.
- The battery life of this is pretty good, I never got the claimed 8 hours of continuous use, but it is easily hit 5 to 6 hours.
- A unique feature of the PHA55BT, the unit also offers two modes of use.
- Pairing is simple, and with a split second of powering on the device, I am already connected and rocking out with no any problems.
- There is no USB DAC capability and no application support.
- Only weak point of the unit is the battery life. 3-hour to charge yields 8 hours of continuous playback.
- Most of the bluetooth receivers on the market seem to be cheap devices with loads of features, but absolutely awful sound quality but not BTR3.
- Also, the ability to use this as a super-tiny USB DAC is also a very cool feature.
- Features on this little device, once hooked up to the FiiO music application on the phone actually is quite impressive.
- A nice feature is that even though you are using the DAC directly, you can still maintain the Bluetooth connection to your phone and take calls.
- No equalizer options. Instead you would need to rely on equalizer from the source device which for phones is usually bad.
