AKM AK4493 DAC
The iBasso DC01 uses a stereo DAC chip with the latest AKM AK4493. As compared to the previous AK4490, the signal-to-noise ratio has been improved. It uses a true balanced circuit with dual ultra-low distortion LDOs to give a truly balanced amplifier, providing high power output with improvised dynamics and resolution.
The DC01 supports up to PCM 32-bit/384kHz and Native DSD256 decoding. With it, you can connect your 2.5mm balanced IEM or headphone to any USB-C device. It is certified Hi-Res by the Japan Audio Society.
iBasso has picked the 8-wire braided audiophile cable after numerous tests and samples. This cable provides a better signal transmission as well as better durability. It uses a USB-C connector and standard UAC2.0 USB receiver. It is compatible with almost every Android smartphone, computer and tablet, also doubling-up as a USB Soundcard for PCs
Use the UAC2.0 Volume Controller App along with the DC02 to get 64-step hardware volume control that reduces the noise floor and also achieves a better audio performance.

"Everyone has a phone these days and plenty are Android. Introduce them to a good quality sound from their jack-free smartphone if you can. It won’t break the bank."
"UP2 is lovely. It’s a smart answer to the search for a small and portable Bluetooth source. Size does not always matter, the UP2 is diminutive in size, yet its a compelling device for audiophiles."
The DC01 can be plug-and-play on Android Smartphones and tablets with Android5.1 and above, without installing drivers or third-party APPs(due to the Android device’s system or hardware limitation, there may be a low compatibility issue with some smartphones or tables). On some Android devices, it may be necessary to manually turn on the OTG function in the system settings.
The DC01 uses a standard UAC 2.0 sound card shipset for plug-and-play on Mac and Win10 computers. For WinXP, Win7 and Win8 system, please download the driver .
There is no buit-in battery so the DC01 receives its power through the USB interface from the master device. The actual power consumption is related to the operation and the device system. Because DC01 has an audiophile DAC chip it is normal for the DC01 to get warm during use.
*So far, we found that the DC01 has compatibility issues with the Samsung S9 and S10 smartphones. It works flawlessly with other Android smartphones.
*The DC01 can be used with the UAC volume control APP. With our APP, you can use our 64-step hardware volume control.
Don't sweat it, this iBasso DC01 comes with a 1 year warranty from iBasso that covers manufacturing defects. All products featured on Headphone Zone are backed by an original manufacturer's warranty.

Amazing amp dac combo available for just Rs 4.5k. Ak 4493 is as smooth as Jagermeister, but make sure you pair it with fiio fh1, fiio f9 or kz zst 2.5mm earphones. You can also use it with soundmagic e80s and sennheiser 599se as long as you have 2.5mm to 3.5mm male to female adapter.Why anyone would buy ibasso dc02 when dc01 is available at just 500Rs extra is simply just beyond common sense! Works perfectly with laptops and mi a2 phone as well.
I have been using it since last one week and let me tell you this little monster will blow your mind and ears.
Latest AK 4493 chipset is awesome. It’s my daily dose, so I don’t listen music now without it. Good combo of affordable AMP/DAC for beginner audiophile like me.
I have been using it with my Sony MDR-XB55AP and my newly acquired Shure SE215..... and they sound awesome even my 8 year old daughter could make a difference she notice in sound clarity.
Must buy for all music enthusiasts..........
Finally thanks HPZ..... for awesome service even in current situation......
Literally I'm very big fan of iBasso DC01 balanced DAC. I'm only listening by using this one only. It very good 👍 rendering music all IEMs. Very good job 👏 iBasso. And most important my favorite Headphone Zone, event hough under padamic lock down service is very good. Thans full to my Headphone zone team.
I am more than happy. It's really great product!
I was researching on how to improve sound quality and how to experience best music. And this product is one those. It really improve sound output. And I'm using it with Hybi seeds.
And I'm sure with more high end products too it will give best sound quality.
Design is simple and clean. The tags and cable quality gives it premium look. It shows that it's costly and not just cheap converter cable.
Using it with one plus 8. And my music experience is totally different now.
Listening songs from gaana , and hd quality songs are just awesome!
Thank you headphonezone :)
A pretty decent DAC, a good one to possess to get the flavors of AK.
Fantabulous website I ever seen
First i dont have any type 2.5mm balanced earphone or connenctor , i was do some research in google what is the diagram of balance 2.5mm output than i have found this wire connection TRRS -R+R+L-L and i done some dia connector and now i enzoy 3.5mm unbalanced earphone with this beast , 113mw@ 32ohm 1.9v ountput is such a big sound output ,bass is very deep in full or low volume sound stage is good treble is good , when you put full volume bass is not muffeld very strong output, please provide me a 2.5mm male balanced to 3.5mm female unbalanced connector
Thanks headphonezone team
They work exactly as advertised. Gets a little hot during use and you will need to install the Ibasso UAC app for android to control the volume properly otherwise it will jump around. IEMs connected thru these sound amazing.
Changed the Perspective of Listening to Music.
