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.

Pair with Laptop via USB

A majority of people use a laptop as the primary source device to listen to music or watch movies. Since the laptop is an essential part of the audio chain there are headphones and devices designed to work a laptop or computer system flawlessly. With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback.

Great product, with caveats.

I wanted a accurate DAC that does not break the bank, has balanced output, has bluetooth, and volume control.

Full marks on all of those. I get goosebumps on every goosebump worthy music.

Now the caveats: 1. Your amplifier should be warm sounding/ have a tone control. Left alone the sound is very clinical. I use it with a pair of studio monitor that has tonal control and it is set halfway between neutral and warm.
2. The instruction manual is incomplete and inadequate. After playing around a bit I have figured out most of it, but two functions are still a mystery. Full instructions are not available on the website either, till now.

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