Worth the sound but not the expectation.

I thought that using DAC would make a huge difference than without using the DAC. But thats not the case here. There is not much of a difference here. The major difference is the volume, that with DAC it goes far beyond the headphones capability which results in distortion due to over volume. When kept at low volume, I couldnt here much of a difference.

I'm finally over the loss of my 3.5mm jack!

I've been trying to find alternatives for wired output music since my phone didn't get a 3.5mm jack and I finally stumbled upon this DAC. I've coupled this with Poweramp and downloaded some of my favorite albums encoded in FLAC. What can I say? Music has never been better. Even better than the traditional 3.5mm jack output. Even at the highest volume, there's not a bit of distortion. It might seem loud to some people at the start but for an audiophile(although I'm a beginner), you'd hear things which weren't evident before. It's like moving from 60Hz screen refresh rate to a 120Hz. There's just no turning back. If you're phone doesn't have a 3.5mm jack, and you listen to a lot of music(wired!!), this is an upgrade that you need to make your life filled with music sound amazing.

A downside might be that it uses the battery from the phone to work, but hey, you and I both chose to give up a 3.5mm jack. Kuch paana hai toh kuch khona hai lol.

I'm using a Oneplus 9r coupled with the Shanling UA1 Pro. The headphone is an Audiotechnica ATH M-50x. I hope these last a long long time. Totally worth the money I've invested. Also, at this cost, they're one of the best you can get.

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

I am in no sense an audiophile, but since Apple Music lossless was introduced I reluctantly decided to go down this rabbit hole. Sound quality is great, build quality is not that great. Soundstage seems okay. I used KZ-ZSN PRO and Bose QC 35 ii in wired mode without DSP (as I said not an audiophile) with these. And the DAC does seem like a significant step up from the previously used apple lightning to 3.5 adapter. Delivery was not smooth mainly due to Bluedart, but the overall experience with Headphonezone was good.

Hey Soumya,
Thank you for the review, happy to know you had a comfortable shopping experience!

Good Sound Quality, Can go for it

Hi Raghav,
First I'd like to say I'm sorry I can't give a review before using the product throughly. After using it for many days now I'm going to write my honest feeling.

For all the people who listen to music most of the time at work, home in all the places and doesn't have 3.5mm jack on your phone, they definitely use this dack & 3.5mm headphone instead of a type c headphone. It really enrich your music quality and comfort of listenting.

Now if I'm gonna say it really give you all the spectrums, low-mid-up scales properly then it'll be lie. It really amplifies your music. If you never used a DAC before then it'll open more sounds which you have never could listen before on the same song. You can see the difference as soon as you starts using it.

I've to agree with other users who are using it for the full volumn the sound starts to hurt in ear and gets distorted. The sound is very good till 70-80%. For me, on my phone I listen at 30-40% and in my laptop at 10-20% and it's more then enough. But I'd like to say if you are using DAC then you definitely doesn't need to go full volumn.

According to the price I can say the sound quality can be more good.

Good power and sound

UA1 pro is okay as android usb to 3.5mm. Insane power and but variable Freq response. I felt on Android some kind of power saving kicks in probably and makes freq response V shaped shrill and mids totally degraded. On pc freq resp is balanced.

My phone has super user privileges and exclusive control of usb dac. So no limitation at android level but shanling firmware is to blame for bad Android audio quality

In line call buttons, on headphones won't work 🥲.
Firmware in the ua1 pro is weird in volume control. Linear scale is low gain mode. Logarithmic is high gain mode 😂

Edit:- after 2 weeks I find my 7t pro built in dac more "musical" than this, though it produces more details but vocals completely loose natural timbre and feels digital or metallic in balanced iems.

For headphones, 7t pro inbuilt DAC doesn't have sufficient energy but this one has insane power. But raw power doesn't make music lively.
U need good ears for this discernment

Hey Ayan,

First Time Buying, Didn't hear any Noticeable improvement, Maybe Invest 4k into better IEMS instead.

I tried it with an Ipad Pro 12, Iphone 11 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 LTE. I didnt hear any noticeable difference compared to using a cheap USB C to 3.5mm adapter + my IEMS. Tried with Apple Music Hi-Res Lossless.
