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

Great piece of tech.

Equipment used: One plus 8, Poweramp app., Beyerdynamic Byron IEM (Bought 4 years ago from HPZ.)
Just starting my audiophile journey. I had bought the Tempotec Sonata HD II because my OP 8 doesn't have an earphone jack. And...... YES!!!! Sound improvement is very noticeable. For people who don't hear a change with an external DAC get the Poweramp app and go to Settings > Audio > Output > Hi-Res Output > toggle USB DAC to ON and select sample rate (44.1 kHz to 384kHz available).
.... And so, my audiophile journey continues. I've already ordered my next IEM i.e., 7Hz Salnotes Zero. (I think I got the last one. Website shows out of stock now, lol.) Should arrive today. Will it be an upgrade to my old Rs 3k Byrons? I hope so.
Thanks to HPZ for making this all possible!
Will get my review of the Zero up after I spend some time with it

We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!

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!
