I have na issue withthe M5  where my wireless headphone has trouble reconnecting when the device is idle.  The BT headphone is still on, but disconnects and cannot play anymore, and does not reconnect . Anyone having same issues?  M5 firmware 1.2.2, BT firmware is 1.1.2 it says in About... but I only see 1.20 being released here.   Using lypertek tevi true wireless.  Will try another bt device.

Also wish that tracks can be sorted according to date of the file.

Other than than, enjoying this player, just annoying BT issues when the music is stop for a long time and resume later, resulting to BT failure to reconnect.

Dear friend,

When the M5 is idle  or the bluetooth headphone is idle? The music has stopped playback at that time, right?

Best regards

I pause the player for a while, probably more than 10 minutes, so I guess it is in idle mode, and when I try to resume, the BT headphones are disconnected and when I try to reconnect under settings, it always say fail to connect, I had to try several times to unpair and pair.  even if I turn the M5 on/off.  It takes a few tries to re-pair.

I have the M9 and same BT headphones connect instantly when I resume after a long pause.  So I guess maybe it is a BT issues on the M5?

Edited by McVFX at 2019-9-30 12:02

Sad to say after 2 plus hours,  I paused for a few minutes while the display inthe M5 was off, and made a phone call, then I heard a beep that it disconnected from my BT earphone.  When I turn on the display in the M5, it says disconnected, and I attempted  several times to re-pair, but it did not.  Turned the M5 on/off and the earphone also, same result.  Up to this writing it still won't reconnect.

* Just tried again and did this:

1) power off m5 and BT earphone
2) powered on m5, wait until the device is fully on
3) powered on BT device, heard a sound, it seems recconecting.
4) press resume/play, music plays again.

It seems the issue resolves itself after the device has been off for a while, not just a quick on/off.

Dear all,

I just bought an FIIO M5 in order to be able to use it to bridge the sound of my desktop PC over Bluetooth to my Sony WH-1000XM3 with LDAC.
So I received the new M5, charged it, updated to firmware FW1.3.2, set the M5 to Bluetooth transmitter mode, paired it with my WH-1000XM3 headphone. All this worked fine. Then I installed the FIIO DAC drivers on my Windows 10 PC and connected the USB 3.0 cable to my PC.
When I did this, the M5 changed immediatly to "USB DAC" but also disconnected my Bluetooth headphone. Is there a way to use the M5 like I intended it? So PC(USB)-->M5-->Bluetooth(LDAC)-->WH-1000XM3
Best,
Michael

Thank you for your fast answer.
Will this option be available for the M5 in future? Or do you have a device that can do this?

No, we wil not add this for the M5. The M6/7/9 support this feature. However, because of the feature of Bluetooth transmission, the delay is a bit high.

Hi

I own a FIIO M5, there is no sound through usb when you play music as a bluetooth receiver. I hear sound when I connect jack 3 phones but not when I connect usb earphones, even if jack is diconnected. When playing music from micro sd, the sound comes out from usb, I tried the same usb earphones as when using it as a bluetooth receiver.
Is that normally?

One more question
I have a Huawei high res usb earphones, when the music plays at low volume (max 20 of 60), the sound is very distorted, especially low dynamics sounds, like classics. This happens when I connect this earphones to FIIO M5 and to my SONY XA1 but not to my laptop, every sound is clear even at volume 5 from 100. Is there a problem with SONY and FIIO M5 or with the earphones?

Only the PO output is supported when receiving Bluetooth signal.

Maybe it is a compatibility problem with the usb headphone and the players.
