The iFi Go Link is a steal, a stellar piece of gear that delivers a truly high-res audio experience at a knockout price. Supports most of the high-res audio formats, including MQA.
As far as the iFi Go Link, I have to say that it is an impressive little dongle for the price. Great sound quality, Good for IEMs easy to drive, Good for casual listeners, Very lightweight, Extremely portable.
The Go link is a decent sounding dongle DAC without competition, simply because there is no other device that combines sound, build, and accessories at this price.
At the end of the day, if you mainly use IEMs, and if you don’t have a headphone output on your smartphone or laptop, and if you fancy a thick, bass heavy signature, iFi Go Link is a great option at its current price point. 
For what it is, the Go Link is a neat little device. With the Go Link, getting that clean resolution is easy and more affordable than ever before. Clean and accurate representation of sound.
From a cost perspective, this is definitely one of the top options below $100 right now and a very competent performer with the right pair of headphones or IEMs.

Our Verdict

This is simply the best Dongle DAC for less than Rs. 5000. It allows you to convert any smartphone to a hi-res audio player. It’s the easiest way of experiencing high quality music on the go with your In-ears or Headphones.

Shanling has introduced a noteworthy upgrade with the UA1 Plus. This version now features dual DAC chips and offers several enhancements, including app support, reduced background noise, top-notch build quality, a neutral sound profile, excellent portability, and comfort. Without a doubt, this DAC is a must-have and comes highly recommended.

The iBasso DC03 Pro is a highly capable device. It boasts excellent build quality and impressive sound performance, and despite its compact size, it delivers enough power to drive a wide range of IEMs and headphones.

Amazing stuff

I was little confused as I have read reviews that device not working properly or heats up a lot, but Headphone zone employee Mr Hector convinced me, I trusted him and am happy that I trusted him. Absolutely nice device. And I would recommend every music lover to ask for Mr Hector D'mello whenever they want to enquire anything about music, sound enquiring through headphones one, as he is the only one who knows your likes, and will suggest you the exact device, love you Hector, u r really awesome. Brotherhood forever 🤟

This makes us really happy and we really appreciate the genuine feedback! We're glad that you have such positive thoughts about our team and the company.

Very Good Cheap Portable DAC if you are upgrading from below average 1000Rs dongle DACs.

I am very new to the audiophile world and this my very first portable DAC experience. So I don't know how to express in technical terms. I will use baby language. I am writing this review after using these extensively for about 4 days. I am using these with CCA 10 Pro IEMs which are entry level IEMs. I have also ordered Dunu Titan S from Headphone Zone. I am excited to pair those IEMs with iFi Go Link. I will write about that combo in Titan S review. I played music using Apple Music at its highest setting which is HiRes Lossless Spatial audio. After plugging it first time it blew my mind. I first use to own very cheap 1000Rs dongle DACs compared to those there is night and day visible difference. First of all everything became more loud significantly. I also loved its metallic build along with matte green colour. Looks and feels very premium. I have noted down it's pros and cons after using it extensively for 3-4 days which are as follows (IMO):
Pros:
1) If you are upgrading from a cheap dongle dac, then you will immediately notice the difference in sound quality. Everything gets more clear and crisp. You can hear instrument seperation more clearly especially high hats on the drums, electric guitar runs and acoustic guitar plucks. You can even here then 808 beat and synths more clearly. And vocals are not being muffled into the instrumentals. I mostly listen to RNB music and these elevated my music listening experience by miles.
2) The led light indicator at bottom is huge blessing. This light is very helpful to check whether if you are truly playing HiRes music or not.
Cons:
1) I am not very confident about the quality of the wire used in this. This wire is not pocket friendly as it keeps getting bend. As I have experienced in previous DACs that keeping these DACs in your pocket continuously and bending them will give out the audio from one side after year of use or it becomes completely unusable. Will these survive in pocket, only time will tell.
2) After continuous usage of just 2-3 hours of listening music, watching videos and gaming, the main housing body gets very warm. Not completely hot but warm around 30-35 ° C. It is not a measure concern. But I wonder how long will these survive after intensive usage.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Thanks to the HPZ team to educate newbies on audiophile exploration. I use the DAC with my android devices and there is definitely a sudden increased volume that you would experience, clarity is pristine with my IEM. I am happy with the sound, however on moving too much there is disconnection resulting in pause/stoppage of music. Long run there would be issue with wire connecting the DAC, Suggest you can suggest the same to IFI audio to get these rectified. I have a year warranty and will change it if required.

We really appreciate the genuine feedback, we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well!
