In the world of portable music players, it’s all about strict minimalist design on one side and opulent technical extravagance on the other. Shanling Audio is setting a new trend with their new Q1.

For Shanling’s new player, they went back to unique look of 1950s. Back to smooth round edges, creamy pastel colours and distinct chrome-like parts.

Shanling Q1

The Shanling Q1 is based on their 30 years of experience in high-end Hifi audio design and manufacturing, while adding on top their more recent knowledge of system development and advanced Bluetooth functions.


Shanling Q1 will be firstly available through a Kickstarter campaign, later it will be released internationally by Shanling’s network of distributors.

The Kickstarter campaign started just a couple of days ago and has already hit its target.

Pricing & Availability

Pricing starts on Kickstarter at $79 USD for the limited Early Bird offer and will be shipped in Feb 2020 before the full release in March 2020
