SILENCE? YES PLEASE!
Whenever you listen to music on any device with a USB input, you are bound to hear some pops, clicks and delays due to electrical noise. To clean this noise, simply plug-in the iFi Audio iSilencer+. It removes EMI and RFI noise from the source and makes your music clearer and punchier.
DRIVE AWAY ALL NOISE WITH ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION II®
With the latest Active Noise Cancellation II®, it effectively cancels out noise just as it works in noise-cancelling headphones. Unlike ordinary filters, it reduces the noise by 100x or 40dB. It can be used in active as well as unused USB ports to reduce the radiated EMI. The noise reduction capability increases with the number of iSilencer+.
MINIMIZE DISTORTION WITH REBALANCE & UPDATED CIRCUITRY
The iSilencer+ features REBalance® technology which eliminates distortion and ensures that regardless of which audio file is played, the digital signal remains true to the original source. For advanced audio input and output, it has updated circuitry, low-ESR tantalum capacitors and an increased 10 fold filtering capacitance.

Input Chain 1: Home Server -> iFi iSilencer+ -> Audioquest DragonFly Red -> Class A Stereo PreAmp -> Class AB Stereo Power Amp -> KEF R Series Speakers
I got this device in the hope that it will remove an audible hiss from my USB port on the Home Server/NAS. The iFi iSilencer+ did NOT remove any of the USB Hiss in this setup, but managed to add a layer of microdetail. Bass feels subdued, while midrange and treble benefit.
Input Chain 2: MacBook Pro -> iFi iSilencer+ -> Audioquest DragonFly Red -> Class A Stereo PreAmp -> Class AB Stereo Power Amp -> KEF R Series Speakers
This input chain has a lower noise floor and much lower USB hiss because the Source (MacBook Pro) is not as noisy as my home server. However, the iFI iSilencer+ does not add any benefit in this chain as sound is muddied overall, but on a resolving setup the clarity of midrange/treble improve a bit while bass suffers. Overall, the sound was atrocious.
As you can see I've had varying experiences in the above two setups, so this product is a bit of a hit and miss. Note that I haven't tested this with any headphones instead of speakers- perhaps there may be a benefit there.
Hey Aditya, thanks for taking time and sharing such a detailed feedback with the setup information. We really appreciate it. Sad to know that this product is not meeting your expectations. Feel free to reach out to our team anytime to make the best use of your purchase.
Well unhappy to report that in my system, although it is cleaning up the noise by a bit but in return it is producing a sound with unnecessary emphasis on the highs and producing a lesser dynamic impact than the original. Also it is producing a more rounded lows with less attack and more decay. First impressions were okay but when I went back to my setup without it, it was apparent. It makes the sound flatter in signature and takes some of the exitement away. I will treat it as an add on device to change the sound flavour just by a bit like an op amp or a tube.
Better than old version and audioquest jitterbug too. Tested with usb input of dac and headphones, the effect was immediately audible in form less smearing and congestion. Instruments has lot better defined imaging . It does not affect the dynamics unlike other usb cleaner.
