Do you find that your headphones/ IEMs often have a background hiss from your source? All you need to do is connect the iFi Audio Ear Buddy to your headphone before plugging it into your source device and voila! You get a sound without any hiss, pops and buzz. It is compatible with smartphones, PCs, DAPs and in-flight entertainment systems.
Usually, at full volumes, music tends to lose at least 2-bits of resolution. The Ear Buddy brings back this lost resolution letting you increase the digital volume without any painful consequences. It is compatible with all headphones and IEMS that use a 3.5mm jack. You also get memory foam earplugs along with an aeroplane adapter and travel pouch for in-flight use.

Well, to start off, I'm too lazy and don't write reviews but here I am
1. Usually, we increase volume to get more clarity, better vocals and highs etc but listening at high volume causes permanent hearing damage. With this, it reduces gain and maintains high clarity at low volume. Result being exceptional clarity at low volumes and no need to listen at high volume
2. However, it also improves sound dynamics, the difference between the lowest of notes to the highest notes is improved. Also improves soundstage even in iems.
3. Reduces hiss and electrical interface noise, which usually heard often in sensitive iems.
All these for a reasonable price makes it a stellar purchase.
Some reviews said you will lose treble detail, but that is not true. Because its an attenuator, it reduces the gain maintaining clarity and they are perceiving low volume as lack of treble clarity.
But if you blind test it with same volume levels with and without ear buddy you can definitely tell the difference.
Overall, I'm quite satisfied and also will save my ears from hearing damage and from ear fatigue.
But if you love cymbal sounds, good treble, nice highs, this won't cut it.
