Q: Is the K1 for use with smartphones?

A: The K1 was designed as a USB DAC for computers, and not guaranteed to work with smartphones.  It also does not come with OTG cables for connection with smartphones; users would have to buy these separately.  iPhone users need the Camera Connect Kit and not a regular Lightning-USB adapter cable.

The K1 has no battery and draws power from its connected device, which means it would draw power from a connected smartphone.

Hi, K1 is a DAC. It is for PC and  can't be used with the M3.

Dear FiiO team,
I've tested my K1 with next smartphones from HTC:
HTC 10 - success
HTC 10 evo - success
HTC U Ultra - K1 doesn't work
HTC U Play - success

For test I've used two different kinds of USB-C-2-USB OTG adapters + short cable from the K1 box with the same results.

Today a lot of new smartphones are issued without audio mini-Jack 3,5mm (from my list only HTC 10 has this audio connector) and by this reason we look at market for adapters from USB-C to miniJack to use our lovely previously purchased headphones. In this case your K1 looks like very interesting goods. Only one bad thing - the OTG cable must by purchased separately.  

I think you have a chance to fight market if you bundle K1 with short USB-C-to-MicroUSB OTG adapter for direct connecting K1 to smartphone with USB-C connector.

Unfortunately I cannot find  such adapter in Ali store. I'll be happy if you can help me to find such thing to buy.

Goo luck!
