To truly improve on the already excellent sound quality of the M11, the M11 Pro employs two carefully implemented AK4497EQ DAC chips based on the AKM VELVET AUDIO architecture. Compared to the AK4493EQ, the AK4497EQ brings better specs and actually noticeable improved sound quality.
With the fully balanced THX AAA amplifier, the sound quality just gets even more amazing. The op-amps that are a part of the dual THX AAA-78 balanced amplifier architecture deliver extremely powerful output to easily drive most headphones. And using the same power supply, compared to typical amplifiers the THX AAA amplifier gives a more powerful output while being more efficient, resulting in less noise and distortion for a more precise yet natural sound.
M11 Pro includes MQA technology, which enables you to play back MQA audio files and streams, delivering the sound of the original master recording. The master MQA file is fully authenticated and is small enough to stream or download.
*MQA decoding currently only supported by the FiiO Music app. Future firmware upgrades will allow MQA decoding on third-party applications.
FiiO is the only one among companies of digital audio players to utilize the Samsung Exynos 7872 hexa-core processor. With performance comparable to the Snapdragon 625 and Kirin 659, the M11 Pro delivers a uniquely and exceptionally fluid experience when being used, allowing it to multi-task extremely well – ensuring you really get your music on demand.
Inside the M11 Pro lies two independent low phase noise crystal oscillators from Japan-based River Electec, which when working together with FiiO’s own self-developed FPGA greatly reduces any distortion when doing any audio processing and ensures the purity of audio signals in general, for further improvement to the sound.
.M11 Pro can transmit the SBC/aptX/aptX HD/LDAC/LHDC Bluetooth format as well as receive certain formats. The M11’s high-performance Bluetooth radio ensures you can transmit signals further with stronger overall signal strength, so nothing can get in your way of enjoying quality wireless music.
When set to be in the Bluetooth receiver mode, the M11 Pro transforms into a high-quality Bluetooth amplifier, with significantly better frequency response, as well as lower distortion, noise floor, and crosstalk compared to typical Bluetooth solutions. On top of that, the M11 Pro can also output any received Bluetooth signals through the coaxial out to an external decoder. With the M11, you can enjoy truly divine sound over the wireless convenience of Bluetooth.
*Please kindly note that the Apple Music,Google Play and Google Play related services are not available on the M11 Pro
We wanted to make sure you can listen however you want, so the M11 Pro has 2.5mm balanced, 3.5mm single-ended, and 4.4mm balanced outputs. Freely use and switch between the different outputs to listen however you want.
With the M11 Pro’s dual-band Wi-Fi radio, you can expect better signal strength as well as faster and more stable connections – especially when using Wi-Fi on the 5GHz band to avoid interference 2.4GHz Bluetooth.
Like the M11, you’ll only find straight edges on the M11 Pro in its purely polygonal style that looks visually arresting, yet cohesive and natural. On the left of the device you will find the gold-plated nickel letters “PRO”, hinting at the immensely upgraded components inside.
The large and colorful 5.15-inch high-definition display with 10-point multitouch and 1440*720 resolution is highly immersive, with its almost borderless design lending it a more visually rhythmic flair.
The stylish glass-backed lets you immediately make a tactile connection with the M11 Pro with just a single touch. The glass stays lustrous too, with both the front and rear glass coated with an oleophobic layer. The rear glass is also coated with PET coating, and the carbon fiber texture on the body further enhances the comfort of your grip too.
With 3GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage, you can be sure the M11 Pro multitasks effortlessly and without fail. And with the ability to put in a micro SD card up to 2TB for vastly more storage, you can carry thousands of lossless songs with you without having to worry about space.
Nobody wants to wait a long time for charging. To minimize this problem, the M11 Pro supports both Qualcomm’s QC2.0 and MediaTek’s Pump Express fast charging standards, allowing the M11 to fully recharge its large battery in merely 2.5 hours! The large built-in 4370 mAh battery allows for continuous listening up to 9.5 hours, and for standby in deep sleep mode up to a massive 55 days.
The M11 Pro features a deeply customized version of Android, with a highly optimized audio software architecture that circumvents SRC for global truly lossless audio. Unique to FiiO’s custom version of Android is the ability to switch between Android and Pure Music modes – in Pure Music mode, only the built-in FiiO Music app is allowed to run, for the purest music listening experience possible.
Simply install the FiiO Music app your Android/Apple device to wirelessly control the M11 Pro, while also showing the M11 Pro’s current playback status.

Present on the M11 Pro is the modern symmetrical USB Type-C connector. Supported functions over USB include charging (with support for USB PD 2.0 chargers), USB storage, USB Audio, and USB DAC.
You can play songs stored on your PC or NAS through DLNA, while those with iOS devices can use AirPlay to push songs to the M11 Pro. You can also transfer songs to the M11 Pro through your web browser or other mobile device via Wi-Fi.
The M11 Pro supports DoP/D2P/Native output of DSD over USB. Experience the numerous possibilities in sound when connecting the M11 Pro to different decoders via USB.
Through the single coaxial output jack, you can connect to speakers, amplifiers, and decoders using the appropriate output (coaxial, optical SPDIF, etc.)
You will only truly know what is the definition of immersive after hearing this. When using All to DSD mode, any PCM audio signal is converted to DSD, and then decoded to analog as a DSD digital signal – which results in a different, yet clear sound. And not just the built-in FiiO Music app supports this mode – all apps that can run on the M11 Pro do too.
The M11 Pro contains an all-new 10-band dynamic EQ capable of increasing or decreasing each band by 12 dB. With the built-in pop, blues, classical, jazz, rock, dance, metal, and vocal presets as well as a user-defined custom EQ, you can get your music to sound exactly the way you want it.
Besides having received the Hi-Res Audio certification from the Japan Audio Society, the M11 Pro is also Hi-Res Audio Wireless certified – so you can be sure of the strength of its wireless audio capabilities.
