Product Description

FiiO A5 portable headphone amplifier uses the E12A’s hugely successful MUSES02 + LME49600 opamp combo.

Featuring high precision metal film resistors in all major components along with a better design, A5 achieves a THD rating of almost 0% and improved signal-to-noise ratio of 115dB.

Based on E12

FiiO has strived to constantly progress and innovate with fresh ideas in the portable amp market. With the A5 Headphone Amplifier, they continue striving to significantly improve the previous E12 series. Every last detail has been reworked and revamped to create a new headphone amplifier that not only maintains the E12 series' strengths, but also rises above them for an even better product.

Clean Potent Power

Clean and potent power is also extremely important to sound quality. The A5 contains a highly efficient, low-resistance power management system as well as dual +/- 11V supplied power. This is a significant increase over the E12A's +/- 7.4V supplied power and gives the A5 considerable power reserve that is unheard of in portable amplifiers. Finally, a +/- symmetrical power supply allows for the elimination of coupling capacitors leading to reduced distortion and increased dynamic range.

For IEMs/ Headphones

Beyond just getting output power near the E12 with 800mW at 32 Ohms, you also get the E12A's exquisite abilities in reproducing music. With the low/high gain switch you can enjoy the A5 with all kinds of headphones from the most sensitive IEMs to the most power-hungry headphones.

Longer Battery Life

An 88OmAh 3S battery is used. A5 can automatically adjust the amount of current to the battery when charging by detecting your particular charging equipment. Whether that is a PC USB port or your cell phone/tablet's charger, you can be assured the A5 will choose the safe and appropriate charging speed. With a 5V charger, the battery can be fully topped up in 2.5 hours, faster and more convenient than rivals, giving the amp a lengthy 12-hour life.

Charging Indicators

The A5 has a LED specifically designed to let you know device's charging status immediately. Depending on the amount of current when charging, the LED will blink at an appropriate rate which allows you to quickly determine the present charging speed. There is also a working status indicator that immediately notifies you to whether the unit is on or off.

CNC Milled Connectors

No detail down to the headphone connector has been overlooked. FiiO used a CNC stainless steel headphone connector ring for the first time, replacing the previously used copper. A plastic ring is pressed into the gap between this connector ring and the rest of the body, ensuring seamless integration. Not only is this more aesthetically pleasing, the headphone connector is also sturdier due to the non-existent gaps and the use of harder stainless steel.

Functional 45 degrees

Inspired by string instruments, fifty-six 45° lines are etched onto the volume knob's surface. The laser inspired red ring that adorns it gives a distinct, characteristic look. Instead of the typical brushed metal finish, the A5’s aluminium body has a sandblasted finish in which abrasive material is forcefully sprayed onto the surface with highly compressed air ensuring a more durable surface. The anodised paint gives a robust and unique look while making it last longer.

- Professional MUSES02 + LME49600 op-amp combo
- Lengthy 12-hour battery life on full charge
- Quick 2.5-hour charging, other charging modes available
