Hi, what are you looking for?


FiiO’s KB3 Hi-Fi Keyboard Will Drive Your Headphones As You Work

For those looking to maximise their desktop space and enjoy hi-res music as they work through a pair of headphones, the FiiO KB3 Hi-Fi Keyboard is no gimmick.

FiiO KB3 Hi-Fi Keyboard

Give FiiO some credit. Not only have they released some of the best new DAPs, Dongle DACs, and headphones in 2023, but this is one brand thinking outside of the traditional high-end audio shipping box.

Desktop audio has become a rather big category and with so many consumers working from home — there is a need for products like the FiiO KB3 Hi-Fi Keyboard that serves as a fully functional keyboard compatible with Windows, MacOS, Android, and iOS that incorporates two high-performance and efficient CS43131 DACs, as well as two low-noise SGM8262 op-amps so that you can connect your headphones directly to the keyboard.

FiiO KB3 Hi-Fi Keyboard Desktop Lifestyle

One less box on your desktop, and more than enough power for some rather popular audiophile headphones; especially FiiO’s new FT3 32 Ohms model.

Capable of providing up to 550mW of output power — supporting audio files up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD256 — and equipped with both 3.5mm single-ended and 4.4mm balanced headphone outputs, a wide variety of headphones can be connected to the KB3.

The FiiO KB3 features a gasket mount design, made up of multiple layers, which serve to greatly absorb shocks, thereby reducing noise.

Thanks to its Gateron G Pro 3.0 yellow switches, the FiiO KB3 is perfect for both productivity and gaming.

With semi-transparent swappable key-caps, multiple preset options of RGB lighting, built-in step-less volume control and – thanks to dual USB connections – the ability to act as a docking station for mouse, USB drives etc., the KB3 Hi-Res Hi-Fi Keyboard with built-in DAC/Amp is a truly versatile addition to your desktop set-up.
