How did the users say Fiio M11 Pro vs Fiio M11?

My review of the M11 Pro dap by Fiio. After owning the M11 and spending time with it. I was happy with the overall sound and features. It was not a huge step up in quality from my galaxy s9. But using a dedicated media device made playing music easier my library of music is north of 200 gig.

So, my impressions of the M11 pro. Well, I was a little shocked that it only has 1 sd slot. Not a deal-breaker though because 512 GB MicroSD cards are not that expensive anymore and 1 TB micro sd cards are hitting the market now. So getting to the main issue the sound.

It is better than the M11? It's noticeably better.

With that said though, the improvement is mostly in the dynamics of the sound. I am happy with the improvement Bluetooth pairing was smooth and easy but the final sound is largely dependant on what is receiving the signal. It is worth the extra money.

If you like to use wired headphones you will appreciate the more realistic sound but most people will not shell out close to 1000.00 Canadian when a high-end cell phone for the same money can do a lot more than play music.

Mind you, the sound I get with a pair of se846 and hd650s is extremely nice. Another thing is that because the amp in the DAP is more powerful it drives full-size headphones better. For me, this one is worth keeping. Its something good enough that I don’t feel I’m losing anything from my full-size sound system.
