Fiio EM3 - Everyone's Daily Driver


BACKGROUND I needed a pair of mobile headphones. I wanted to use something while walking to the transport station or while commuting. I needed something that are not very isolating so I'm still aware of my surroundings. I value safety more than sound...

Mic button, fatigue-free sound, great soundstage, durable, affordable

lacks bass slam, treble could use more detail

Get much more than you pay


I love the openness and light weight of earbuds, unfortunately those earbuds I tried such as OMX95, MX375, were lack of bass and musicality. Then I found Fiio EM3 is under $10 and got good review, so I got it a shot. Look EM3 is cheap, but they don't...

Clear and enjoyable sound, good sound stage and separation, nice bass, comfortable fit

Loose fit

FiiO EM3 - The perfect companion for your smartphone

Fiio EM3 – Versatile Budget Bud Review With Comparisons to the Baldoor E100`s and Earpods


Introduction – Once seen as cheap throwaways, earbuds seem to have become the new phenomenon in the audio landscape. Since they don't produce a strong seal and have a very loose fit, they are seen as having very limited uses, but these attributes can...

Warm detailed mids, Treble is top quality for an earbud, Especialy spacious soundstage, Ergonomic, Build is very solid for the price

Mids are veiled and can sound too full bodied, should come with doughnut foams

REVIEW - Fiio EM3 Fiio is not a company that needs any introduction. Known for its wide and affordable large Amp and DAC line, and well regarded since the release of the first DAP model, the X3 a couple of years ago. Recently the first and low budget...

SQ for the price; very enjoyable presentation; comfort

FiiO EM3: The Reign of the Ultrabudget (plus Budget Shootout with some KZs)


Introduction Of course you've heard of FiiO. Nearly every audiophile I know who works their way up the chain has owned or heard a FiiO product before. They are the cherry-poppers of head-fi, luring you into giddy audio goodness with promises of “value...

Balanced tuning, full luscious mids, good treble, wide soundstage, comfort, outstanding value.

Foams muffle sound drastically, bass quantity, uninspiring design, tangly cables.

While these are good, they are not much better than many others available out there. I tried and returned, the lack of bass was just to annoying. Not enough sub-bass for classical without amping. Honestly, I retried my Philips SHE2005s and found them...

Comfortable, clear sound

Poor mic, loose fitting, foams make muddy, no discernible bass for classical
