DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.
Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. 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.

An amazing pair of portable Amp and DAC

I had recently bought the Earmen Coliibri portable amp and dac which was on sound festival sale. The packaging of the product was really good and the device itself is extremly well built! The design and the feel of the product is superb and on top it comes with a free leather case which is icing on the cake.
It comes with an in built battery which gives about roughly 4.5 Hrs of continuous playback time when fully charged. The battery level indication is shown when the device is turned on and depending on the battery level it will blink the led indicator from 4 times maximum to 1 time of min battery level.
Now one of the main advantage and reason for me going for this device was that it has built in battery which makes sure that it doesn't drain out quickly your cellphones or laptops battery like a other portable amps and dac's do! the second reason was having an inbuilt battery makes sure that the dac chip inside the device receives uninterruptable and clean power source making sure there is no noise issue due to poor power and uneven supply! Many good portable amps suffer from this problem as they are not able to get clean power source especially when using inferior quality cellphone devices.
Now regarding the main purpose of this device! How good do they sound?
Well well well..when I first plunged in my Moondrops Blessings 2 earphones my god! I instantly noticed huge difference in sound as well as sound stage!
The sound stage so wide I could listen to the echo's in the music which previously was not even noticeable! The sound coming from the Blessing 2 was so clean i could pinpoint the source of sound very clearly! The little sibilance issue that bleesing 2 has completely went off after i plugged into this device!
The device has 3.5mm and 4.4mm balance output the moment I connected the device to 4.4mm balanced output damn!! The performace raised even higher!! The soundstage got even more wider,The bass thump increased substantially with clean and tighter impact! It was truly spectacular to say the least!
I then tried my Sennheiser IE 300 with it and again the mids which used to sound dull on those earphones came to life! More presence of the mids, high rich treble and deep impact of base made Sennheiser IE 300 sound truly amazing on this device!
Then I tried connecting my Sennheiser HD 600 over the ear headphones. It is a very difficult headphones to drive as they require 300 ohms. With it's 3.5mm output it couldn't bring the power required to drive the HD 600. But after i connected to 4.4 mm balanced output it was able to drive to HD 600 very well, which is good enough for listening satisfactorily but it lacked the oomph that only a proper desktop dac and amp can do. Nonetheless the music sounded very clean and transparent on those headphones and at no point they sounded muffled or noisy, showing how capable the dac chip and amp is of this device!
Also this device has a small bass boost button which increases the bass subtly to 3 decibels and it its quiet noticeable and comes in very handy when listening to music like EDM, HIP HOP and other genres where in one wants to feel the thump! Personally i am addicted to this bass boost feature as it sounds amazing across all genres of music.
All in all a truly spectacular device with amazing sound capabilities and a device that doesn't hog the battery of your device.
A great portable device for people who truly wants an audiophile level of listening experience from their earphones and headphones (especially withing 200 ohms). A gem of a product from built quality to sound reproduction.!
Thank you headphone zone for the quick delivery and making such a wonderful product available on a discount.
