With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

Great Sound made portable

Used with : iPhone 7 plus, Macbook Pro

Headphones Used: Audeze Sine, RHA t20i, Meze 99 Classics, Crossfade M-100

The Dragonfly Black just lights up the music and makes it more enjoyable. The bass is more pronounced and has more weight to it. The soundstage is better, vocals are more prominent and everything is crisper. And it can get really loud.
The only downside is the inability to fine tune the volume. This was not a problem when used with my iPhone but with the MacBook, increasing the volume by one notch resulted in considerable increase in volume.
In order to use the dragonfly with an Android/iPhone, an adapter would be required. For the iPhone, the lightning to USB camera adapter from Apple works best, though it is quite difficult to find one. I purchased mine through Flipkart. I have not yet used the dragonfly on an android device.

Excellent DAC

Took my AT M50x to a whole new level.Couldnt tell much when compared to my M2Tech Evo DAC. Such a tiny thing can do such wonder, it's truly amazing.
Great service by Headphone zone guys.Periodic update of the courier. Prompt call from team if you drop in a message.
Can anybody suggest a usbc to USB A female cable?

Great portable DAC to enhance audio on the go.

I have been very impressed with the DragonFly Black. It is perfect for less demanding headphones like my AT M50’s or a set of IEM’s. When driving my HiFiMAN Sundara’s I do notice a bit of a drop off in overall punch and heft of the sound, it seems to be at it’s limit and I have to set the source vol. to about 80-90%. The only gripe I would have is I wish AudioQuest would have updated it to a USB C connector instead of the USB A. That being said it is perfect for driving a set of good IEMs off my iPad. I would even recommend it for a beginner setup as long as you choose you headphones carefully.

Hey Hormazd, thanks for sharing your honest and amazing feedback, we really appreciate it!

Design and Comfort:
Sound Quality:
Value for Money:
Portable, revealing, convenient

The title says it all. It is convenient to carry, sounds very revealing (though a bit treble heavy to my ears) and can provide enough juice to power reasonably demanding IEMs/HPs. However this is a battery monster. Drops my device's battery to half, so a battery pack is must if you want to listen all flight long.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thank you for the great review & ratings!
