Hiby R3 provides excellent sound quality for its price and is perfect for earphones and most easier-medium difficulty to drive headphones. Tiny size and very good value. R3 has both 3.5mm and balanced 2.5mm ouputs.

Headfonics.com: 8.9 / 10 the build is beautiful... the R3 is very much geared for excellent performance with efficient IEMs. It is with IEMs that the R3 really shines ... It is by far the most advanced non-Android based ‘entry-to-mid-fi’ DAP at this price point.
Headfonia.com: The R3 is small, beautiful and well built...the top quality touch screen deserves special mention....interface wise the R3 also scores big...sound wise the focus is on fun & musicality ...the combination just works great.
