New and Shipping: portable Fiio BTR1 Bluetooth Headphone DAC/Amp for $100

Fiio has launched a new product and it’s already shipping! It is the new BTR1 bluetooth headphone DAC/amp, all in one portable device, with Bluetooth 4.2 and apt-X support. It has a fashion-y clip as well. I hope that if/when the clip breaks off, it breaks off clean like it did with the good old Sandisk Clip Plus mp3 players 🙂

This has its own mic/remote controls, so it may be one way to “bluetoothize” and “buttonize” your wired un-buttoned earphones/headphones. Note that this is a bluetooth receiver, not a bluetooth transmitter. This is not a DAP, it does not spit out music, it grabs music from your phone or other bluetooth-transmitter playback sources.

As of the time of writing, it is in-stock and shipping for $100 by the Tinbel Store, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so Prime members get free 2-day shipping.

Lots of details at the Fiio product page. They also made a 60-second hype video about it, but they mis-typed the named in as “BRT1” in the video [2 to 6 seconds in the video] 🙂
