According to Fiio’s announcement, three models, M11 Pro, M15, and M15 Pro will be released after the M11. However, the exact launch date will differ because all three models are developed by the same R&D team. Thus it is technically impossible to launch them simultaneously.
Who might need Fiio M11 Pro?
Those who purchased the X7 or X7MK2 with AM3D will know what Fiio has to offer. In fact, the M11 pro also could be named “X7MK3”. Both AM3D and M11 Pro are utilizing THX AAA amp technology with similar sound signatures. M11 Pro player adopts two AK4497s as the DAC chip, which are more musical than the ESS chips on the X7/X7MK2. Of course, what’s more important is that the main control, display, function, and experience is much better than the X7 or X7MK2.
Why is M11 pro $200 higher than M11?
Though M11 Pro priced $769 ($20 coupon Code from Hifigo.com: FIIOM11PRO) is around $200 higher than the standard version M11 (varies by tariff and VAT). This is because Fiio spends $200 more for better chip AK4497, larger capacity FLASH chip (32G more), better amp chip and THX license fee. It also has an independent analog volume adjustment chip as well as a larger battery (approximately increase by 600 mA).

According to Fiio, many users don’t mind the small difference between the Fiio M11 Pro stainless steel version and M11 pro standard version. Therefore, the stainless steel version will be a special edition and will not be mass-produced.
