Audio46's Opinion

As usual, FiiO is giving you a lot for the price. The K11 not only offers a commendable level of power, but also just makes your music sound audibly better. With an intricate, highly controlled delivery and more spacious imaging, the K11 brings just enough character to your headphone’s sound without manipulating its essence. The only major downside to the K11 is the lack of MQA support. But if you’re not a Tidal streamer, who cares; for $130, the K11 overdelivers in every other way.

3 gain levels, 3 volume curves

Specially-designed audio circuit & Specially-designed power supply

Within the K11's slim build lies a specially designed audio circuit designed for great sound quality. This is backed by more than 16 low-noise LDOS for precise voltage stabilization and powered by an external 12V switching power supply. All of this leads to a purer and more robust supply of power, leading to stable high-quality audio and thus truly enjoyable music all of the time.

Adjustable RGB logo lighting

The FIIO logo is illuminated with RGB lighting, giving you a quick way to identify the sampling rate of the current audio being played back. Six LED strips work in conjunction with a carefully placed reflective film and parts of the body designed to reflect light to make the light show uniform and elegant.
* Brightness, color, and light patterns are all adjustable using the knob state

One knob, One source of total

In the K11's minimalist design, the volume knob acts as a crucial source of total control. The K11's multi-function volume knob is used to power the device on and off, for menu operation, for volume adjustment, and for other functions. The knob is designed so that you can quickly execute various complex actions by simply pressing and turning the knob. You can also quickly switch between LO/PO* modes by double-pressing the knob, making it easier for you to appropriately connect to different headphones or audio setups.
*LO/PO modes remember the last volume set in each mode independently, no need to readjust the volume when switching between modes

Driver-free mode, Worry-free operation

The K11 used in USB DAC mode does not require a driver on Windows 10 and above systems, and can also be used with video game consoles such as the PS5 and the Switch. Simply plug and play for worry-free usage whether you are enjoying music or being immersed in games.
*Installing the driver unlocks support for higher sampling rates
