Bottomline: At this price, Fiio F3 is one of the perfect choices for music lovers. It has an ergonomic design and made with quality materials.

The Fiio recently announced its new in-ear monitor with mic F3. The new monitor houses Japanese copper-clad aluminum voice coils which allow it to present a transformative listening experience by clearly bringing forth even the subtlest of details within the music. F3’s cable is made of polyurethane, which is a low microphonic, durable material that is also lightweight, highly elastic and tough against scrapes.

The earphone adopts a 90° L-type headphone plug that fits comfortably. The gold-plated plug not only ensures that it will not oxidize but also minimizes audio signal loss.

The F3 includes 3 different sizes of ear tips. Not only does this allow the user to choose a size based on what is comfortable for them, but also allows them to choose the sound they want since different ear tips have different sound signatures. The ear tips are made of medical-grade silicone, which is both comfortable to wear and environmentally-friendly to boot.

The Fiio F3 has a built-in control option for your music and your calls. The F3’s inline control unit is made of aluminum, which is lightweight and durable. The F3’s inline controls are fully compatible with FiiO’s newer X-series players, such as the X1 2nd gen. The microphone and call button are also compatible with iOS and Android devices.


To review the audio performance of Fiio F3, we played various genres of tracks, and we did not find any weakness anywhere. On tracks with intense sub-bass content like “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the F3 delivered bass beats vigorously complementing the pace of the lyrics and will surely captivate you. The F3 remains distortion free even at top volume levels. Drums, piano, whimsical handclaps all sounded pleasant making this melody truly entertaining to listen with F3.

If your music library includes hip hop, electronica and demanding bass, this is going to be the headphone for you. On classical tracks and on Opera it sounded rich, fuller and balanced. Also on Bill Callahan’s “Drover” vocals sounded rich in the mid-lows with higher frequencies maintaining a bright presence throughout and with ample balance.
