High Quality Audio From Your Android Smartphone

High resolution audio is starting to gain popularity among many music listeners with more services online providing streaming of FLAC or Lossless audio formats. While this is great for computer systems where you can easily install a high quality sound card, there is a lack of products available for those who want to listen on the move.

A lot of Android smartphones have a 3.5mm audio jack built in for playback to headphones. While this is standard to almost all phones and widely used, it does not always provide the best audio experience and can sometimes seem a bit lack lustre. Lower end phones may seem like they do not have enough power behind the music, making it sound flat or tinny.

A cheap and easy solution to this is to connect our USB Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) with built in Headphone Amplifier to your phone using a USB 2.0 Type A to B cable, and a simple USB Micro-B On-The-Go Adapter.

The DAC supports up 24-bit 96Khz which is above CD or even Studio Quality audio.
This allows your phone to play high quality audio while still being portable and gives you much finer volume control.

Please note: Android phones running version 5.0 “Lollipop” or above will natively support audio over the USB port providing the phone has USB On-The-Go and the manufacturer of the device has enabled the feature. High quality formats such as Apple Lossless or FLAC may only be played providing they are supported by your music player software.
