DAC Chip
You may not even realise it, but most of us use a digital-to-analogue converter (commonly known as a DAC) daily. Built into your computers, tablets and smartphones, a DAC is fundamental to unlocking the convenience of digital music. Any device that acts as a digital sound source will need a DAC to convert digital audio to analog. A DAC converts the digital information stored in “0s and 1s” into an analog signal that's passed to speakers or headphones and ultimately our ear. In short, DACs play a large part in making digital music hearable. 

While this technical process is undoubtedly impressive, the DAC embedded into your smartphones or laptops is nowhere good enough to listen to your favourite music recordings in high quality. So, if you want to listen to music in high quality, an external DAC is essential to allow headphones or speakers to perform at their potential. An external DAC, first and foremost, will improve audio quality dramatically.
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.

No change in sound quality

I was expecting a change in sound quality of my iem as I was using it with my phone previously and it was pretty expensive but I didn't notice any change in sound quality or sound stage hence 3 star but it is very helpful as it didn't negatively impact the sound so go for it if you don't have another choice.

We are sorry for the product not matching your expectation. We appreciate your honest review & ratings, Satyam Yadav!

Chota packet, bada Dhamaka

I would highly recommend that you get this portable dac amp with any iem or headphones (there are certain cases where a more substantial dac amp would be better)
This chotu dac amp has just brought new life to my audio technica ath m50x which I have owned for God knows how many years, even with iems like the tanchjim Tanya, the bass feels more punchy the vocals more clear and crisp and the trebbles feel really pleasant, overall a great budget dac amp.
A cherry on top is that it has mic support so you can take calls even when you have the dac amp connected using your iem or headphones mic

There's a wide grin on my face everytime I listen 😁

I use Final E3000 IEMs with tempotec. And I must say the sound output is enhanced to a greater extent. The sound signature is more towards V shaped. The separation of each instruments and the depth is lovely 😍
I'm giving it 4 stars coz it drains the battery from my phone while also heating up

We appreciate your honest review & awesome ratings, Kushal Naik!

Hit and a miss

DELIVERY and PACKAGING:
As expected took 3 days as i live in a small town and packaging could be imroved in a box rather than a cover

Look and build:
Small and not much weight , looks fine and sturdy, needs care since its wire on both ends not swappable cable .

Sound:
(Not an expert)YES it makes a big difference to your earphones irrespective of the model brings most out of your earphones , bass becomes better , more lively sound sometimes little too much .

Cons: I need to say , since no one addressed this , the chip gets pretty warm and makes discomfort

Verdict: since i am tight on a budget i can make adjust for some small discomfort , overall good improvement. Spend some more if budget is not an issuse
