When I first placed the order – I was initially apprehensive whether can it drive a power packed CAN like EL8 (Open) but Fulla 2 – did all the magic. It’s a compact USB DAC and headphone amplifier. The price to performance ratio as the audiophile community claim – is just fantastic. Its an out and out desktop set up amp with a simple USB connector. The most convenient part is you don’t need to install any drivers.. Just plug and play – be it windows or MAC. In terms of sound- they produce a kind of punchy and dynamic sound. It can easily drive power to any pair of cans. Headphone out, aux input, power supply options and stack expansion possibilities – all packaged into one product – that’s Fulla 2 for you. I currently pair it with my Audeze EL8 (open back) and it was able to bring out the sound signature of El8s.. It is versatile and ease of use at this price point ..If you want a budget DAC/amp with excellent sound quality…Just go for it
I auditioned them on DT 1990 PRo, EL-8 Closed.
They are amazing.
For their size they are pretty powerful. The only DAC of this size that is more powerful is the ₹40k Chord Mojo.
Deep deep bass. I am guye who loves natural tonality, fairly neutral signature, natural and precise soundstage.
ANd these give me everything. They have deep deep bass, extended highs which aren't fatiguing at all. The smooth sound is just eargasmic to listen to.
Fulla 2 is warm, which means that they are not neutral. But consider the fact that many neutral cans are bright sounding and somewhat fatiguing so this shit makes for a great synergy with premium cans too.
The mids are very forward, resolving, smooth and detailed. The sound has crispiness but still quite forgiving.
To me, I would buy this or the Audeze Deckard (Class A monster) or any other Class A monster. Nothing beside Fulla 2 looks attractive at this price for a desktop setup.
And I have compared them against the Deckard too. Deckard is great, but this is not far either. Deckard vs. Mojo are far more significant than Deckard vs. Fulla 2.
I bought the fulla 2 after spending weeks on research. I bought it mainly to power my AKG K712 headphones. But I also wanted something to enhance my listening experience from my laptop and desktop. I can basically pair the fulla 2 with anything. I was simply blown away with what this little monster can do. The connectivity options are very simple and hassle free. Use it as a dac or amp/dac combo. It delivers a solid performance regardless of what it is used for. The cheaper option to the fulla is the fiio e10k. But the fulla 2 has a lot of driving power than the e10k. Plus the build quality is pretty solid than fiio. Overall listening experience has improved greatly. It may not be a day night difference, but it comes close to achieving the same. All in all a very good buy. Thanks headphonezone for making the fulla 2 available in India.
Design of Fulla 2 is excellent, with this DAC sound quality of my stereo AV Receiver of YAMAHA RXV 465 has improved, Ton has clear and bass,treble, vocal sounds has balanced & up to the mark like BOSE.
AMP : Pretty Powerful Can Drive most of the cans
Pre AMP: Does the Job ...Not very effective though
Fixed DAC: This is where things get interesting, I break it in to 3 parts below:
Low Frequencies : WOW !!!!!...Bass is just as tight as it was recorded ( I guess )...Listening bass line is so sweet
Mids : Vocals come to live... Listening Steven Wilson, Norah Jones , Adam Levine, Adele..Etc..Is treat to ears...Like they are live
High Frequencies: Just hit the sweet spots...Without fatiguing...More engaging and immersive
Overall a great buy...Thanks for Headphone Zone Team for this decision between...Dragonfly ...High five to you Guys !!
I am listening everything 24 bit 96 kHz Wav files every bit of it..Cheers !!
