HiBy, a brand made its name by lossless music APP and OS, announced three major firmware updates to its own customized Android system, HiBy OS. Virtual multichannel, EFO Spatializer and EFO Virtualizer These three plugins are created by James Fung and Joseph Yeung of EFOtech, working with HiBy Music. Virtual multichannel plug-in is dedicated to providing realistic three-dimensional spat...
Today’s entry-level boutique player HiBy R3, although the product is in appearance from the R6 here integrated into the family-style Facebook. But with a more precise product positioning, this is an entry-level music player that Seabe combines its best-skilled HiBy OS and sophisticated audio architecture designs, and a product that can be talked about first.
The selling point of the R3 is to penetrate its HiBy OS into this entry-level player, and thanks to hi-Time OS’s powerful features and optimizations, the entry player is “high-end” in terms of functionality and sound quality. Perhaps out of the depth of the HiBy music app, the inherent impression of this high-quality smartphone app, HiBy player will not leave a traditional “brick” impression. The roundandanding and simple shape allows it to go counter to other players’ pursuit of “asymmetric design”.
Haibei is, after all, a company from the Internet, always in the details of the product to the extreme, this time R3 accessories have a white shell and a white data line, the box also has some messy cards and four Hi-Res stickers.
Take a look at the appearance of the product, R3 gives the impression that some sloppy, rounded under the body is actually thinner than the mainstream entry player thickness. Paired with 2.5D curved glass with a hydrophobic layer, the single grip feels excellent. The r3’s appearance continues with the R6 design, in which the seashell strictly adheres to the traditional symmetrical design and interprets the classic aesthetic in place. The frame is a familiar metal frame, full fit screen and back glass back panel, if you have a certain understanding of the product, I believe this appearance will certainly make you feel missed.
The polishing of the exterior details does nuns doesn’t make the “look” there’s a big difference between the products, there’s always a feeling that it’s different in the player’s product, which is extremely comfortable for users with symmetric obsessive compulsive disorder. Key interface what is not good to introduce, key work has been catching up with some “foreign brick” level.
On output interface, support for 3.5mm single-ended/linear output, 2.5mm balance interface, USB support for digital output.
On configuration and audio architecture, the master adopts our familiar Junzheng X1000E, this master has seen in many players in the country. The independent audio architecture mainly uses THE ES9028Q2M decoding chip, dual-140dBc/Hz low-phase noise crystal, HBC3000 DSD hard-resolved chip and eight Panasonic POS CAP polymer capacitors. It is important to note here that R3 does not have internal storage space and requires a TF card to play music.
R3 supports native 64bit 384KHz and DSD256 decoding (hard solution), which is still very high in digital audio specification support. The eight Panasonic POSCAP polymer capacitors used in the power supply reference R6. Many music player products always claim to be able to push how many impedance headsets, ignoring the battery life and operational experience, And R3 officially claims to be able to achieve single-ended 11-hour, 9-hour balance-end and 60-day deep standby levels at 32 o’s loads. This is thanks to the x1000E master’s ultra-low power consumption and the precise software optimization of HiBy OS.
On system, interaction, the next step is to knock on the blackboard. The first and most important selling point of R3 is that HiBy OS can say that all the features of R3 revolve around HiBy OS. HiBy OS, on the other hand, is the operating logic on The R3 that relies on the touch-and-entity button. This R3 body button distribution on the side is also more reasonable, HiBy OS rich features and close to the smartphone on the HiBy music app experience, this Time R3 should be haibei the ideal entry posture, to show the user in front of.
HiBy OS is still extended by pulling the page up and down, similar to the number of smartphones on the market today. In HiBy OS, you can set up The R3 wireless connection wifi and two-way Bluetooth. Wifi supports DLNA and AirPlay playback settings in addition to updating the firmware, which is very helpful for playing in network environments with multimedia needs. Bluetooth support apt-X codec, and support HiBy Link function, which is a Bluetooth connection to use the mobile phone side to control the player playback of practical functions, here is practical, is based on the mobile phone terminal to cancel the 3.5mm headphone interface, want not to pull out two portable device operation I’m afraid HiBy The Link feature is the ideal solution. R3 also supports wifi songs, which is a great way to do this without data cables and without a card reader. Another thing worth mentioning is MSEB’s custom tone, which is recommended to users who like sound settings.
HiBy OS makes it easy to get started on interactions, and if you’ve ever used a mobile version of HiBy music, it’s even more out of the question. And R3 in the software function is very much, here is no longer listed, the setting is relatively simple. Officials are still responsible for each product on the official microblog of HiBy Music Official to carry out a very detailed video teaching filming, if you need to learn more about the player’s functions can take a look.
After reading so many boring introductions, here’s a summary: R3 is a high-quality starter player based on HiBy OS. In conjunction with HiBy OS based on the system’s underlying audio optimization and the audio architecture is used in the traditional DAC plus AMP to ensure the stable and efficient operation of the product.
Finally, let’s talk about sound, and the earbuds are here with the Flying FH5 and Dita Twins to try.
HiBy is different in the sound taste and tuning style outstanding, this is retained on the R3, R3 has a relatively rich “decoding chip original” taste, in the sound to strive for rigour and objectivity, in different frequency bands to do more delicate fine-tuning.
The very high frequency extension of R3 is not exaggerated, the dynamics of high frequency are slightly weaker, the transient reaction is also slow, the sense of measurement is moderately high hearing resistance, and the hearing is relatively soft. The transient relative ease of the medium frequency part has a very high sense of volume and relative lysing, as for low frequency, better dive and clear level is the biggest bright spot of R3.
R3 is less high-frequency distortion when pushing these two plugs, and the low frequency control is very high, so that the overall three-frequency listening is very grip.” R3’s sound field is natural, more tight and tight on scale than the average player, which is another manifestation of control. R3 in the medium and low frequency section to achieve more obvious relaxation and warm sound listening, which makes R3 more suitable for the general user to listen to various types of popular classics and all kinds of spitting songs, any earplug can let users feel more pleasant music charm.
Dita Twins supports plug change, with a “one-click switch” between the 3.5mm and 2.5mm balance ends. Try the R3’s balanced port here, and the sound is more straight, bringing looser sound fields and more detailed sound detail. The overall style is also relatively more rigorous.
The way we enjoy music is becoming more and more diverse, but our time is becoming more fragmented by life. Disgruntled with the sound quality of your phone, a device that can enjoy high-quality music anytime, anywhere has become a necessity for music lovers and enthusiasts. Different from the simple function of the program single pure-tone MP3 player, today’s music players have a separate audio architecture, in the sound quality and handling experience has also made a qualitative leap.
The HiBy R3, with its HiBy OS, is based on the well-known HiBy Music APP in the early years. Haibei entered the player industry because of its high product configuration has also attracted a lot of attention.
Today with you to share this R3 from the subjective feeling to see this machine or give people very fresh and bright, through the unique product ideas, to solve the mobile phone and player out of which one of the outstanding contradictions, this is very rare.
