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.

Thought to be hoax for sure but it not only Works, also increases sound dynamics.

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.

IFI Audio- ear buddy

It provides you with amazing sound quality, honestly I think it is best to use it with your iems cause in order to reduce the hiss sound it reduces the volume a lot and gives you exceptional sound at low volumes improves sound dynamics and gives you wider soundstage, better bass. To get the most out of it use it with powerful high end dacs and amps.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience & thank you for the great review & ratings!

Reduced the hiss/noise by 90 to 95 percent

I originally intended to return my CCA CA4 because of the hiss/noise issue using it with my Creative Sound BlasterX G1 only. On other devices like M-Audio amp/dac mobile phone with 3.5 mm jack and computer mother board 3.5 mm jack it was totally quiet so I had brought this also so solve this issue. In my order page CCA CA4 is still greyed out and showing returned

its uses

Hi,
Hardware__ ATH-M50x(30 ohm), KZ Zst X, V11 pro(mobile), iPad pro,
Spotify, FLAC.

I have extensively used these for over 3 days and found that they are worth it except they are a bit pricy, better paired with AMP to experience there full potential just a thought tho, but better that buying cheep AMP/DAC comb, as they are not worth the price we spend on them,

what it does __
when you are playing from a mobile you are playing at low volumes so that you don't blast of your ear you are loosing a bit of info EX; if the song is of 10bits and your playing it at 7 volume you rae missing out the remaining 3 bits of info and what this does is it reduce the loss of that 3 bits,

Uses__
better used for IEMS, and earphones, for my M50X if found that even at full volumes the headphones is not playing at full volumes

Hey Abhijith, thanks for sharing this honest and detailed review with everyone! This will surely help other customers in getting clarity if they're considering this for their next purchase.

Saves your ears...
