beautiful sound from such a small simple DAC. it worked perfectly and easily the first time i plugged it into my galaxy s3. the sound is great, with lots of separation and detail. it's even better than the headphone out on the galaxy, which has a very clear open sound already..
my only complaint is that there is a high pitched tone present when the DAC is plugged in. it is there whether music is played or not. it is very low in volume and is hardly noticeable when listening to music, but i really was hoping for a dead quiet soundstage. but for $30, i feel it is still a great performer. the only time i even hear the tone is on a very sensitive pair of headphones driven by a hybrid tube amp. on the car stereo or played through floorstanding speakers i can't even hear it.
HIFIMEDIY REPLY: it might be something with the tube amp that triggers it. We don't get any of this noise when connected directly very sensitive headphone 116dB @ 1mW. With these headphones the samsung output is very noisy while the Android DAC is completely quiet.
Nice. Works with Galaxy Note 3 out of the box.
Superbe dac pour smartphone pour un prix sympa !
Je l'utilise sur mon Wiko cinq five grace a l'application USB audio recorder
Le son est meilleur : propre,clair et détaillé.
Work with Wiko cinq five + USB audio recorder , excellent !!!
Superb value for money. Works with Samsung Galaxy S4 - no additional software needed. My only crticism is the size of the USB plug - it's a little chunky and doesn't fit too snugly with my Spigen SlimArmor case on.
These are fantastic for tuning bass-heavy headphones to a more sane level. They offer great soundstage (for headphones), improved clarity and instrument separation, and would work great for a car stereo AUX-in. A cleaner sound vs Galaxy S3 (Jelly Bean) standard out and can power low impedance headphones to a great level.
It's literally plug and play. Volume control is adjusted like you would on the standard headphone jack.
