A Classic Look, A New Hi-Fi Sound

The Q1 combines the best of the classic 50’s style look with the revolutionary sound quality of today’s high resolution audio. The Q1 uses the latest ESS Sabre ES9218P High-Fidelity Digital to Analog chipset (DAC) and Amplifier, allowing up to 32bit 384kHz and native DSD ultra-high resolution audio. The power that the Q1 provides is incomparable to modern smartphones, but is also background noise-free, which makes it perfect for any headphone or earphone.  While the design may be retro, the software system uses the latest 3rd generation Shanling MTouch OS, which is extremely fast and responsive, providing a natural ease of use. Using the touch screen, users can quickly access all of their music, controls, and unique applications. The MTouch is a growing system thanks to the continuous cooperation of Shanling users, and will always stay up to date with the latest and best features.

Wireless Connection

The Q1 is equipped with the latest Bluetooth chipset to allow two-way transmission. The Q1 can connect with any bluetooth headphone or speaker and transmit latency-free, long-range, and crystal clear connection, thanks to the support of the advanced Bluetooth codecs from Sony LDAC, Qualcomm aptX, and AAC. The Q1 can also connect with smartphones, laptops, and tablets to function as a bluetooth receiver. In this setting, you can play your favorite tracks or videos from your computer, and use the Q1’s high power amp to provide the best sound possible to your headphone or earphones.  The Q1 also features a USB DAC mode for wired connections with your smartphone or laptop. You can use the full power of the ESS ES9218P DAC/AMP chipset to get the highest resolution audio from your computer or smartphone device

Made for the Modern Audiophile

The audiophile-grade ESS ES9218P DAC/AMP chipset allows all audio formats and supports high-resolution audio up to 32bit / 384kHz PCM and up to DSD128.  With expandable memory to 2TB, you will never have to worry about running out of storage space for all of your music. Just fill up your microSD card, and you’re always good to go! 

Tiny Footprint, Huge Power

What good is a portable music player if it can’t fit in your pocket? The Q1 is designed so you can take it anywhere and everywhere! It can fit in any pocket, and you won’t ever have to think twice about its size. It’s so compact, it’s smaller then a deck of cards! And with a 2.7-inch touch screen, it is one of the easiest portable music players to use.  The Q1 was also built for rugged use, with a unibody construction from zinc alloy and 7H tempered glass. And for a little extra durability, every Q1 comes with a protective silicone case of matching color.

William Cleveland
Great Battery Life/Good Interface

If the firmware updates keep coming the product will keep getting better. The player having the ability to jump to the next folder without input is a huge plus.
The buttons on the side are a little too easy to press though.

How much does shipping cost?

We have two shipping methods - Standard Shipping and Express Shipping.

Standard Shipping is free for most countries, while Express Shipping via DHL Express is 10-35USD depending on your country. If your order is over 200USD, DHL Express Shipping is free*.

*For some countries, DHL Express is only free for orders above $239USD. Large items such as headphones (e.g. HarmonicDyne Zeus, Gold Planar GL2000, and etc.) are exceptions as well.

  • For Standard Shipping, it takes about 2-3 weeks for items to be delivered after shipping out. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country and its customs.

  • For Express Shipping, it takes about 3-7 days for items to be delivered after shipping out.
