  • Headphone Zone Certified Unboxed Units

    Unboxed units are as good as new products with the product's packaging being unavailable. These products give you the same satisfaction of new products - but at down-to-earth prices. Usually, the product's packaging may have gotten damaged in transit. Customers use a product once or twice and then return it with opened up packaging.

    WHERE DO UNBOXED PRODUCTS COME FROM?

     

    Customer Returns
    Returned headphones are fully functional products that have left the warehouse and therefore can no longer be sold as new as their packaging has been opened. The product may have been used once or twice by the customer who returned it.
     
    Transit Damages
    Sometimes we receive headphones in damaged packaging due to shipping accidents. These are brand new headphones with cosmetic flaws on the packaging.

     

    Why Buy Unboxed Headphones?

     

  • Made in Collaboration with Gordon Rankin & Microchip Technologies

    The DragonFly Black has been developed by AudioQuest in partnership with designers Gordon Rankin and Microchip Technologies. The new DragonFly has a better signal to noise ratio and much lower power consumption than the original version. How much lower consumption you ask? 77%! This is thanks to the new Microchip PIC32MX microcontroller that enables true compatibility with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

    Incredible 32-Bit Audio Performance with New ESS Sabre DAC Chips

    The new DragonFly Black comes with a 32-bit 9010 ESS Sabre DAC chip that employs minimum-phase filtering for naturally detailed, more authentic sound. The DragonFly Black uses the same high-quality headphone amp and analog volume control found in DragonFly v1.2.

     

    Asynchronous USB Streamlength®

    Streamlength™ asynchronous USB code ensures low jitter, low resource load, minimal packet errors, world-class audio playback, and reliable connectivity between our DAC and any computing device compliant with USB Host Mode (as set forth by the USB Organization). Streamlength requires no additional drivers, making DragonFly Black virtually plug-and-play for Apple, Windows, iOS, and Android users.

    Medium Output at 1.2 Volts for Most Headphones

    DragonFly Black will output 1.2 volts—enough power to successfully drive all preamplifier input circuits and a wide range of today’s efficient headphones. Its processing capabilities to just 24-bit/96kHz resolution. This makes using the DragonFlys as simple as it’s always been: they’re fully compatible with PCs without having to download and install new drivers.

    Upgradeable Software through Free Desktop App

    The DragonFlys are software upgradeable thanks to the free Windows or Mac desktop app. As and when there are any updates available to music player apps, streaming protocols, or other software, the complimentary app will let you incorporate these updates to any existing devices.

    Analog Volume Control

    Unlike the DragonFly Red, the DragonFly Black supports digital control (from the host) analog volume control. With DF Black connected to a PC or mobile device, adjusting the host's volume control will, through proxy, control the DF Black's onboard volume, ensuring maximum resolution regardless of volume setting.

  • What the Press say

    style=display:
    "AudioQuest is on a roll, so the DragonFly Black and Red are easy to recommend to audiophiles seeking better sound, without spending a lot of cash. The Audiophiliac is impressed by our DragonFlys’ ease of use, versatility, and clean, full-bodied sound."

    style=display:
    "Great audio is hard to sell because it doesn't lend itself to benchmarking or obvious prettiness like, say, a better graphics card might. To appreciate it, you have to immerse yourself in it, give it time to reveal itself and to reward you. "

    "The evolution of Audioquest’s DragonFly is just as impressive a tale of transformation. If you’ve been craving better quality music on the go, the AudioQuest DragonFly Black v1.5 has you covered."

    style=display:
    "I seriously doubt there are better DAC/Amp combinations in this price category and especially in such a small package. It’s the good kind of qualitative and airy bass although the Black’s bass feels a little tighter and faster."
