Product description

Colour:Black

From the get go, all of us were instant fans of the AudioQuest DragonFly USB DAC, and the way it improved the sound of our computer music. While the original DragonFly defined the market for micro-DACs, its USB power draw made it compatible with computers only. But a lot of us music lovers have wished and craved a more portable version—one that could be reliably used and work with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. Well, we got our wish. The DragonFly Black now delivers that same clear, dynamic sound with Apple or Android mobile devices. Convenience and performance are no longer mutually exclusive. With DragonFly Black, any computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone can be used as a true high-fidelity music player, allowing music lovers to enjoy beautiful sound wherever they go, whenever they please. The design gurus at AudioQuest not only gave the Black a far more energy-efficient design — ideal for portable use — but they even managed to enhance its performance. The DragonFly Black is the best ever value AudioQuest DAC. The new price point makes it more affordable than ever and the ideal accompaniment for your smartphone or tablet. Despite the price drop, the sound quality has been improved by fitting a high-spec ESS 9010 DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter). Better known for their use in top-end AV electronics, this 32-bit DAC provides stunning realism and dynamics. With lower power consumption than before, the Dragonfly Black is now suitable for use with smartphones and tablets without undue battery use. Simply fit a USB adaptor to suit your device and connect up to an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet for a massive improvement in sound quality. Whether you listen to music on your smartphone, tablet, Mac, PC or laptop, the audio quality can easily be improved. Whether you use headphones or have your device connected dir ... ... ... AudioQuest and DragonFly designer Gordon Rankin worked alongside Microchip Technology to develop a new high-performance, full-speed USB microcontroller solution that delivers improved signal-to-noise ratio and significantly lower power consumption. Drawing 77% less current than the previous microcontroller, the new Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller enables true compatibility with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad and Android smartphones/tablets. At the heart of DragonFly Black is a 32-bit ESS Sabre 9010 DAC that uses a sophisticated minimum-phase digital filter to provide more naturally detailed and dynamic music. This high-performance DAC is typically found in today's higher-end CD and Blu-ray players. DragonFly Black will accept almost any audio you want to play on your computer and make it sound dramatically better, whether your listening pleasure is iTunes or streaming music services such as Pandora, Spotify, Amazon, or Tidal. Despite its tiny size, the Dragonfly will play a wide variety of music files. Twin clocks ensure perfect playback of 44.1 kHz (CD quality), 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz. As a final neat touch, the dragonfly logo glows various colours to indicate the file frequency: green for CD (44.1 kHz), blue for 48 kHz, amber for 88.2 kHz and magenta for 96 kHz. Make the most of your music on the move, with the AudioQuest DragonFly Black - don't leave home without it!

3.0 out of 5 stars More hype than a true sound
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 January 2019
Maybe I expected too much out of this product, cause I've been reading about it for a year or so. OK, to begin from negative sides. This DAC doesn't have sound stage at all, to be more precise, it is really NARROW. It gives you an impression of music right in your face, which was probably their intention. But the music just doesn't "breathe". Second, it is really dry. It is probably side effect of them doing EQ so it pronounces some frequencies which might guide you to believe that you can hear some things you didn't before. It sounds fake at the end. That harshness of dry sound can be tiring after a while.
To summarize, this DAC is for the people who want music in your face, without subtleties, and with higher volume than their current DAC provides. If this is a plus for you, then this is the positive side of the review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music is greatly improved on all devices
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 November 2017
The DAC comes very well packed with a colourful box with specifications and a list of accessories, out of the box you will get the DAC and a leather carry case, you will need to buy an extra cable to use it with mobile devices, it works out of the box with USB devices.

Music is greatly improved on all devices, I used it on my MackBook Pro, the set up is very easy and it only takes a couple of minutes, most of my music is hight resolution MP3 at 320kpbs only a few FLACS, but with the MP3 files you can see a big different in sound, the sound it's much more detailed and louder. I use it with Sennheiser IE80 and Klipsch X11i, both sound amazing. Better to have some good headphones.

I use it with an iPhone 6 with the lightning connector, the USB camera adapter it works quite well, this cable is quite expensive but it's probably better get the Apple one as it works very well, most of cheap lightning cables don't work well with iPhones.

The DAC will improve all audio coming from the device/Phone regardless of what App you are using, so music from Spotify, Tidal and Even from Youtube will sound much better.
