Shanling is back on the market with the Shanling M0, its newest portable Bluetooth mp3 audio player to date, with a powerful touch screen, powerful and surprisingly long battery life for such a small size. It is also HiRes certified, as its big brothers, so you can enjoy music with unprecedented audio quality.
The Shanling M0 has room for a microSD card up to 512GB, 3.5mm headphone output and a 240×240 high definition touch screen, which allows you to easily manage it. It also has an iconic side-wheel for turning up the volume and handling your music, too.
With this player Shanling bets on the mp3 for sport and outdoor, because thanks to its light weight and very small size you can take it anywhere you want without bothering you, also you can connect it to your Bluetooth headphones or directly with the cable, as it has a 3.5mm headphone input. Enjoy up to 15 hours of HiRES playback and a Bluetooth connection with the aptX codec, so you can stream your music in the best HD quality.
Modern and minimalist
With its unibody, one-piece construction, elegant curved design and a choice of eye-catching colors, the Shanling M0 will easily match any style.
All this time, Shanling has been exploring ways to make his HiRes music players smaller, lighter and more practical in general. The Shanling M0 is so light that even the wind could carry it away, 38g in weight and as small as a watch: 40 x 13.5 x 45 mm.
The Shanling M0 mp3 audio player uses the LG display, offering bright colors and precise control.
Advanced technology motherboard
Within this tiny device Shanling has implemented a multi-layer Microvia HDI board with a special high-density PCB. Compared to ordinary printed circuit boards, the M0 shanling board provides better electrical performance and helps with signal interference on the circuit. This has allowed Shanling engineers to make this model smaller while increasing its performance. The Shanling M0 doubles the power of the Shanling M1, even though it is 38% smaller than its big brother.
Highest quality wireless transmission
Using SONY’s LDAC technology, which supports 96khz/24bit high-resolution music files, it enables data transmission three times faster than standard Bluetooth.
It also contains Qualcomm’s aptX technology, which provides enhanced sound quality by taking advantage of the convenience of wireless technology without compromising your sound.
Bi-directional connection via Bluetooth and USB
The Shanling M0 repro is equipped with bi-directional Bluetooth 4.1, which means you can stream music to Bluetooth speakers and headphones, but also receive* signal from your smartphone or other sources.
SBC and LDAC encoded receiver mode limited to SBC and LDAC
In addition, it has been designed with a bi-directional USB type C interface, so the Shanling M0 can be used either as an external sound card with a computer or as a digital transport of digital-to-analog converters (DACs). As a carrier, the Shanling M0 is only compatible with DACs that have a separate power supply. Compatibility may be limited by the implementation of the DAC’s USB input.
Gesture control without Android
Using the new MTouch operating system developed by Shanling, this player’s system is totally focused on music playback, totally free of any redundant software that affects sound playback. The MTouch is quick and easy to use, with just a few finger slides on the screen you can control everything.
Original user interface design
The Shanling M0 comes with multiple theme options to suit your style perfectly.

Unique Audio Chip ESS ES9218P Solution
The integrated ESS ES9218P chip allows you to enjoy a high-quality music experience. At Shanling, they set themselves the goal of developing the most practical portable music player, while making sure it continued to deliver true HiFi sound. And the ESS Sabre ES9218P chip is the key to making all this happen. This special HiFi solution was designed primarily for portable devices, is small enough to fit into the tiny size of the Shanling M0 and is therefore energy efficient. Thanks to this technology, Shanling’s engineers were able to take the M0 battery to a new level. Its Sabre Quad DAC 32-bit chip can easily rival other dedicated HiFi DACs and the integrated headphone amplifier offers a clean, powerful output, with an extremely quiet bottom and very low output impedance.

The screen of this player is made of 7H tempered glass and the CNC aluminum housing, which guarantees a great durability to this device.
