This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. 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.

At this price nothing can beat this!

Yesterday got my Ibasso DC05. listened whole day plugging those.

Noticed few things:
Performance is better in PC, just plug in play. Synergy, vocals, thumping bass everything is there, very much enjoyable.

Playing DSD is a hassle in windows, can't get foobar2000 working(any suggestions or tutorial to do it properly will be helpful), anyway installed JRiver media center(only 30 days trial after paid), works flawlessly and was able to play native DSD (some test files and 1,2 songs found on internet), FLACs (possible with most players though) easily. didn't find any noticable difference with the pair of devices I have.

But with phone things are different, first thing for most streaming apps don't use the external DAC. For my smartphone I found except loudness there's nothing to notice in sound quality unless I have local FLACs and using HIBY music player, otherwise that I found streaming apps are not using the DAC, the synergy, sound signature was not there at all while using with phone. Phones equaliser, volume adjustment, adjust sounds to earphone... options are working with DAC plugged in, which should not work with DAC in the first place, so thinking that phones DAC is processing the audio and just bypassing it (a wild guess, because sound signature is literally same to my phone just a bit louder).

Power usage wise didn't find any problems, not so power hungry.

Sound signature is mostly neutral and a bit forward I would say (headphones which I have is nowhere accurate sounding, but enjoyable- OneOdio Pro50's ), bass is tight, with some bass heavy headphones it can rumble your ears, and when the time of high frequencies came they shines, the sparkle is enjoyable not painful at all, Laal ishq by Arijit , is soo soo enjoyable.

bought it from Headphone Zone, and thanks to them for delivering these in two days (i live in a remote area).

Devices- Redmi note 10 PM, ibasso DC05, OneOdio pro50's.

4th picture: controls which I talked about above.

Something to add-on, and found while extensive use is that it heats up more while using with phone rather than PC, and suggest to use it with PC to bring the most out of it. And yes it can make a difference in your normal earphones/headphones too.

Hi Sayantan Mondal,
We are so happy you took out time & elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better & informed decision.

iBasso DC05 pure awesomeness

This is the first dac adapter I have bought in my entire life, it is my pleasure to say that it is one of my best purchases till date, the amplification is just bang on, gives a lot of juice to my phone's audio, I am using it with oneplus 6 smartphone, it has drastically improved the audio quality which I really needed to improve cause evryone knows oneplus audio is not that good infact any smartphone's audio is not that great. The last thing is the build quality is just great cause offcourse its casing is metal and the type c wire is fucking great.I just love this product and carry it with me all the time.

Thank you Headphone zone for this awesome product.
Looking forward to do more business in the future with you guys.

Great with open back headphone

Performance with my Philips SHP 9500 is incredible. Ibasso is not well optimised for Android. It performs a bit better in laptop. Did not bring much difference in my KZ IEMs.

Good DAC with bright treble sound signature

Few months ago I bought UA1 Pro. Soon I realised it was a big mistake. The vocals were absolutely bad and rough, with overly boosted treble, sharp ear hurting.

Ibasso dc05 has the same dac chip x2. I was afraid it may suffer the same problems. When I first started to use it, this too had sharp treble but soon I found as the dc05 heated up considerably the sound signature started to balance out. So I turned on the DAC in dsd256 mode and burnt whole night. By next morning when I listened it was more warmer and nice smooth vocals. The treble is there but the sharpness receded for good.

Still I should say dc05 has a V shaped sound signature brighter than neutral with more bass beats than neutral too.

Overall Ibasso has done an impressive job too takle the shortcomings of a ESS chip and made a impressive dongle.

No compatibility issues with windows or Android. For Android use of neutron player or having root access is necessary to bypass Android limitations

Thank you for your elaborative & honest review & ratings, Aryan!
