Ideal for Audiophiles

These Digital Audio Players are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Digital Audio Players like these. You can expect these Digital Audio Players to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Digital Audio Players is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Digital Audio Players deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Ideal For Casual Music Listening

These headphones are your go-to when you want to sit back and relax. If you’re someone who is looking to listen to music without worrying too much about the technicalities, then these are the perfect fit for you. You can expect these headphones to conveniently work and pair with most devices like Smartphones and Laptops without needing an Amp or DAC. These offer the ultimate convenience, but we believe that if you care about an immersive listening experience and audio quality, these are not for you!

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. 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.

Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown. If you’re someone who usually switches between a variety of devices with different OS, then these are suited for you. You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Volume Controls

If your Digital Audio Players have volume controls, you will be able to adjust the volume level with a simple touch of a button without having to reach for your source device. Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback. Having volume controls on Digital Audio Players or at least in-line controls on the audio cable may seem unnecessary to some people, but they are, in fact, quite convenient.

This is enough to drive sensitive IEMs as well as full-sized headphones. You can even connect it to power amplifiers and active speakers.

HIGH-END COMPONENTS FOR UNCOMPROMISED SOUND QUALITY

With the element i, Matrix Audio aimed to create a Streamer that was cost-effective but at the same time packed a powerful punch. This can be seen in the high-quality components like the Freescale i.MX6 series dual-core ARM processor in the MA player. Each circuit uses multi-channel low-ripple LDO. While it's powered by an external power supply, the power conditioning section is never compromised. The IIS LVDS port connects to the XMOS XU208 USB Interface which in turn connects to the ESS ES9028PRO 8-channel DAC. Overall, the perfect combination for Hi-Res Audio.
